All of these companies would quit worrying about how fast you can download a movie and add more towers. I would much rather have a good 4G signal everywhere that provides at least 5 - 10 Mbs. Why in the H#($ does anyone need that much speed??? I know its good they have capacity, but we need more coverage!
A Verizon LTE only phone would have no service half the time because their towers are spaced too far apart.
Re: This is the end
This is absurd. First Network Vision, then the whole "network modernization" project and now this? Wont relocating sites cause many service disruptions? didnt they learn any lessons from the rip and replace they went through a few years back? These guys are clueless on network engineering. They keep making all the wrong decisions and losing customers in the process. Still no VoLTE plans? I would hate to own stock in this company. ...
Re: HD calling
VoLTE is a whole new level of HD. The clarity is way better than Sprints 2G HD.
I am dying to use Android Pay!
I just cant find more than 2 places near me that accept it..... :-(
Come on verizon!
Verizon needs this more than any carrier! They space their cells so far apart that in many cases you get 3G or 1X inside (in norther georgia anyway). AT&T has a site on every corner here. I dont understand how Verizon wins so many network awards when i cant get LTE indoors in many areas.
Does anyone know what bands they are tying together? And what phones support those bands in carrier aggregation?
Re: Way to parry words Verizon.
Where does it say that t mobile can only bid up to 30mhz? The 30 is only reserved for smaller carriers, does not say it couldn't bid on more.
Re: And T-Mobile Will Offer...
CDMA was actually the best voice network ever commercially deployed. I will be sad to see it go after Verizon shuts down theirs as well. :(
Re: Why not prepaid?
I just realized that you can have hotspot and you can use a prepaid sim in any Verizon phone. Why not then?
Why not prepaid?
Does anyone know the downside of going prepaid? I know the phone selection is limited and no hotspot or roaming, but seems like Verizon would be cannibalizing its own postpaid subs. $45 for unlimited t/t and 2 GB data, that is a fair deal. Just curious if i am missing something about prepaid that makes it less appealing.
How is VoLTE doing?
Can anyone that has used VoLTE comment on the quality? Does it drop calls or cut in out? Does it sound much better?
Has anyone tested VoLTE on the iPhone 6? Im curious as when the LTE singnal degrades how is voice quality maintained? Also, if the other caller does not have VoLTE phone, can you still use data while on a call? In other words, do you still use VoLTE even if the other caller does not?
has anybody been able to charge google play to vz bill?
I get server error every time. Called Verizon their clueless.
google play store carrier Billing not working
When i try to bill google play apps to Verizon bill it does not give me the option. If it does, it gives me an error can't connect to server. Any body else having this problem?
Re: Tower hand offs
This has nothing to do with calls. Only data speed. If you live in an area with good 4g lte coverage it will not happen very often. And if it does, 3g speeds are not that bad. I don't have that issue very often maybe once every other week. Its the same as going from at&t lte to wcdma without hspa+. When you say "hand off" you only will notice it if your in the middle of surfing the ...
Does anyone know if VoLTE has the same voice quality as Sprint's CDMA Advanced HD Voice standard?
Re: Uh uh.
Why don't you support one of the smaller guys by being their customer? I understand your stance on competition, so why do you use one of the big guys?
Re: It is actually Gainesville Georgia
Its been announced for Gainesville Florida already.like a month ago.
It is actually Gainesville Georgia
They just turned it on last week (LTE) but announced that it will be turned on in a few Weeks.
Re: Uh uh.
You should switch carriers from Verizon to Tmobile or metro PCs. You hate on them every chance you get.
Why do you hate Verizon so much?
Re: Is it really that easy to upgade to LTE+?
New channel cards and new phones that are lte advanced .capable.
What are you talking about?
And AT&T merger was any different?
Its not good for US meaning us (T-Mobile). Why didnt T- Mobile try to buy the spectrum? The AT&T-Mobile company would only have made ONE company better. Thats no different than Verizon trying to make itself better prepared for the future. Besides, the AWS spectrum Verizon has been sitting on is mainly on the East Coast. The new spectrum will allow them nationwide AWS covarage. That way they can acctually use it the same ...
Re: How does 800mhz LTE compare to 700mhz LTE?
It does affect speed when there's not enough capacity.
Re: How does 800mhz LTE compare to 700mhz LTE?
You wont notice any speed difference because of a frequency difference that small. The largest difference in speed is determined by how much of the 800/900 MHz Sprint will use for LTE. They need at least 10 MHz channels up and down to compete with VZW/AT&T, and a good backhaul link. Sprints 1900 MHz LTE will not be as quick because they are using 5X5 channels. Too little spectrum to keep up with the big ...
Why is the E.U. involved with this? I thought both companies were U.S. companies.
Re: i still only have 2g edge!
Northern Georgia. I have a Verizon phone as well and drop calls where ATT, Sprint and T-mobile have good service. All im saying is that the big wireless companies need to take care of the basics first.
i still only have 2g edge!
I wish Verizon and att and sprint would focus on getting great coverage and 3g (Verizon not included) before the invest billions in 4g advanced!
I HATE junk phone calls from mortgage lenders and credit card companies! What a total dumbass wasting time of millions of people answering stupid phone calls. I hate this man.
Re: The Bottom Line
Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and all others should NEVER advertise unlimited data on wireless network if it cant handle it. They only do this because it sounds good to the consumer. Wireless networks cant handle this kind of load that some customers put on it. There should always be a cap. 5GB or so would be fair or maybe less. I dont blame network operators (Most of them) for not being able to support it, just dont say its unlimited ...
How in the !* can this merger creat jobs???
Can someone please tell me how this will create jobs when most of the service territory between the companies overlaps. There will be retail closures, billing and accounting excess, network operation and call center redundancies, not to mention management layoffs. I dont understand. I wonder how much money AT&T and T-Mobile are paying lobbyist/Congressmen to write bull#$@! letters to the president.
Re: Hmmm... good call? Bad call?
I dont know who is training you, but i wouldn't listen to anything else they tell you. That is complete b.s.
Re: More inaccurate reporting by Phonescoop
Can you not figure it out yourself Texas? You're being way too critical. Phonescoop is one of the best sites for mobile news. No B.S. on this site compared to some other ones. You suck.
Re: Dallas Area?
Maybe they need it because so many people in DFW have AT&T. Their network is probably close to full capacity.
Re: Question about the 2.2 android update
