    Using Verizon Network Extender with MVNO?

    I have poor reception in my house, and bought a network extender
    https://www.verizonwireless.com/prod...sku=sku2490003
    and I connected my Verizon cell phone and it really helped
    Would this also allow my wife to connect her MVNO (RedPocket Red -i.e. running on the Verizon network) to improve her reception?

    I tested it with someones RedPocket (Verizon network) phone - and it didn't work.

    It won't help for MVNOs that don't or can't use VoLTE. You should get data but phone calls without VoLTE will still need some kind of 3G network to fall back on.

    I picked up a 3G network extender from eBay for my friends using older phones, including flip phones, and that worked well.

    Just concerned about calls , no need for data (b/c in the house I have wifi). Is the call quality good with the 3G extender ?
    Also, can I use this alongside my existing 4G LTE Verizon Network Extender 2?
    Also, can you post a link to the 3G extender that you have used with MVNO (was that RedPocket)?

    It worked just fine for me, but I have a very good internet connection at home. Voice calls don't take much bandwidth so you should be fine.

    They can coexist, but I put each on one side of the house to be sure.

    The 3G Network Extenders work great for voice. The only problem I had was the phone "preferring" a barely usable LTE connection over a strong 3G signal output by the Network Extender. The "work arounds" were: use wifi calling, disable VoLTE, or get the 4G LTE Network Extender. I chose to upgrade the Network Extender given I have poor coverage at my home and had mixed results with wifi calling.
