    Question Google Fi on iPhone XS Max - LTE data not working in certain places (w/ 4-5 bars)

    I'm giving Google Fi a spin with an unlocked iPhone XS Max:

    1. I am currently testing it out in the US.
    2. Immediately, I noticed the lack of HD Voice when calling people on AT&T and Verizon (this is expected though..)

    More concerning is #3:
    3. I had 4-5 bars of LTE and I could not use data?
    3a. I switched to "4G" (HSPA/UMTS) and data began to work again (5 bars).
    3b. Why does data not work with 4-5 bars of LTE in certain places/locations?
    3c. Has anyone seen this before?
    3d. When on LTE, in Safari it said data was disabled or not available (phone calls were still working at that time).

    It’s in beta so not too surprising. I’d give them a shout.

    What you've described is something I haven't seen since he whole band 12 fiasco that T-Mobile had with certain phones. You may want to see if you can check if that band is working on your phone. While an Apple phone working on Google's service should work, Apple was known to re-lock and change settings with software updates dating back to the time when they would only sell the phone to AT&T users. If Apple and Google have a rift, or if Apple decides they don't want their phones to use Fi, the iPhone may never get fully supported on Fi.
