    Smile Grandfathered plans work on LTE or upgraded to LTE?

    I am wondering if older grandfathered Freedom Mobile plans work with LTE or are they limited to 3G? For example the Irresistible35 plan with unlimited data.

    I remember hearing about how they will eventually upgrade those grandfathered plans to LTE, has this happened yet?

    Actually I was at freedom today and asked the guy about that and he told me to keep my old plan and SIM card that it would still work on there LTE network. I’m currently on spartphone plan 39 that came out 2 years ago.

    hmm .. have you tried on a band 66 LTE compatible phone?

    I am really confused about this. Different people saying different things.

    I recently switch from my $29 back to school plan to the new LTE plan and I can tell you that they have a way to lock your plan to 3G despite having a LTE compatible phone.

    During the transition, my phone only connected to 3G. I had to call Freedom and complain and finally got LTE after couple hours.

    Old grandfathered plans do not get LTE, you have to switch to a LTE plan being offered now. I know causer my wife did not receive LTE until we upgraded her to a LTE plan.

    I have one of those old data only 10GB for $20 plans, and really hoping eventually we can access LTE... I mean, the 3G is pretty much unusable as I rarely get over 1mbps.

    Has anyone had success with an old plan? SIM swap enable LTE? Calling CS? Anything?
    Looking forward to Wind LTE!


    I can't wait for this to be the norm on wireless!

    I doubt they will. They want ppl off those to increase ARPU.

    Old (grandfathered) plans are ineligible for LTE. Dont hold your breath, just upgrade the plan.
