    Help Me Pick a Red Pocket Network!

    I first got one of those 100/100/500 360 day Red Pocket kits with service on all 4 carriers. Which of the for carriers is the most feature filled (VoLTE, HD Voice, wifi calling etc.) at this level? I have a Moto G4 to use it with. All 4 have competitive coverage in my area.

    I'm leaning towards Verizon and then T-Mobile. AT&T locks features to branded phones only. And Sprint... well.

    Verizon coverage works well if you are traveling. Else T-Mobile is great local.

    I have the RP Verizon. I bought the 500/500/500 and I use it on a Moto G4. It works great.

    I have a line on RP Verizon and it's been great for what little use it sees. I've used it both on a Moto E4 Plus and an iPhone however, and neither are able to use VoLTE or Wi-Fi calling on RP (both work on native service).

    I'm not sure if RP/T-Mobile offers those services or not but Verizon doesn't seem to.

    I have an Orbic Wonder and was excited to see it is VoLTE capable. I also have ROK Mobile AT&T. I temporarily switched the Sim cards to see how the RP Verizon would work in the Orbic. The VoLTE indicator was on, but phone calls did not work. Bummer. I switched the sims back, but I see LTE+ now that the Orbic has the ROK Mobile again. I know very little about this stuff, but I hang around and lurk to learn.

    OP, without knowing where you primarily use your phone the advice of the best network will be limited at best. What works for some in their home area may not work for you in your area.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    Stardude82 already said the coverage is the same in their area for all 4 networks. The question was, which network, via RP, would include the most features (VoLTE, HD Voice, wifi calling etc.) with their Moto G4.

    And yet my question is still a valid one that needs confirmation.

    I guess I don't see that.

    What is needed is for Moto E4 users that have used RP on all 4 networks, no matter what areas of the country, to give feedback on what features (VoLTE, HD Voice, wifi calling etc.) worked.

    I plead the 5th. Mostly, I just want the best call quality in my underground... um... root cellar. I guess, if T-Mobile does not support LTE or WiFi calling natively on this plan and device, it is not very useful.

    Joking aside, I already have devices with Sprint & AT&T postpaid. I want to give 1 and 3 a shake, which are 1 and 2 in my metro.

    If nobody has, I will. (I can even try on a Moto E4.) I want to try Verizon, but...

    T-Mobile, VoLTE and WiFi probably:

    Verizon, probably no VoLTE:

    Coupled with crappy x1 Verizon call quality... Looks like I have a winner. They seem to allow swapping carriers once per year too if this doesn't work for me.

    My Ting TMobile SIM supports VOLTE.

    In areas with Band 12 but no 2G/3G, it's awesome.

    When talking and driving, however, it sometimes cuts out for a few seconds.

    I can confirm VoLTE does work, but cannot confirm Wifi calling for GSMT. The G4 apparently isn't compatible.
