    I learned more about the LG Exalt today. I finally realized the Exalt has no CDMA capability built into it. It is purely a 4G LTE phone. That is why I could not find an option to turn on or off HD...
  3. Problem & solution activating on Red Pocket

    After a couple of hours on chat with RP CS we gave up trying to get my new LG Exalt VN220 4GLTE phone to complete the activation process on RP red (VZ). I dialed a number and the system said to press...

    I was just up there again this past week. Data speed is now down to about 70 kbs. The only comforting aspect of it as far as Verizon customers vs MVNO customers was my nephew, who is a VZ customer,...

    Just saw this thread although it's about 2 weeks old. I'll offer something that is based on conjecture. Is it possible the OP's phone is infected with malware that uses data, and which is programmed...

    Discussion of VoLTE is not directly pertinent to this issue, at least not now nor for the foreseeable future. VoLTE is a 4g service. For now the issue of making the public aware of the impending...

    Note that in my OP I was referring to 3g phones being kept for 911 use only. Since the users of those phones do not have an active subscription for the phone, there is no making and receiving calls...

    From what I read the other day it's my understanding the enterprise users' signal ranges are for machine communications and such and are not the same frequency bands as cell phones. So even though...

    I never said VZ isn't going to say anything. I'm just saying that if VZ sends out emails to all subscribers they're going to miss all those who only have a phone for 911 calls since they are not...

    True, however the folks I'm really concerned about are the ones who have a VZ 3G phone for 911 calls only and no service contract. If they don't have a service contract with VZ then there is no way...

    I'm sure many people carry around in their car, or have at home, a phone for 911 calls only, since every phone will call 911 without having a service plan. What happens to all the older VZ 3G phones...
