    VZW says incompatible, Total wireless & US Mobile say compatible.

    VZW says my Nexus 6 XT1103 is incompatible. Total wireless (VZW) & US Mobile (VZW side) say it is compatible.

    Is this unusual? Or normal VZW elitist behavior?

    I did a really fast search, and I could not find a good clear answer.

    Does it have VoLTE or Enhanced 4G LTE that is support by the Verizon system?

    VZW has two standards of phone acceptance. Those that will comply with every whim of the network, and those that will run on the network with limitations. Only the first are allowed on their direct service. The rest are allowed on MVNO service which have fewer options allowed.

    Yes, this is normal VZW elitist behavior.

    VoLTE support is all that is needed for MVNO.
    Enhanced LTE support is required for Verizon proper.

    Nexus 6 XT1103 network experience will be... mediocre.

    Motorola calls their VoLTE as Enhanced 4G LTE mode in the menu. Since the Nexus 6 is made by Motorola, you will see Enhanced 4G LTE mode in the menu.

    You are right tho. If a phone does not support VoLTE correctly, you can not get it activated. That could be why Verizon says it is not supported, but the weird thing is why the Verizon MVNO is allowing it.

    I did some more digging. The Nexus 6 did have VoLTE on Verizon, but then Verizon dropped its VoLTE support for that phone for some reason. It sounds like it could be due to one thing. It was an Advanced Calling 1.0 phone that could not be updated to Advanced Calling 2.0. It is really hard to know tho.

    I had a Moto G4 Plus and a Moto X Pure that technically were VoLTE capable. Never got VoLTE on Verizon, and I even tried to force the VoLTE on trough the service menu. I could set it "active", but calls were failing with a "server error".
    So that's that...

    That is why in my previous post that I said that I could not not find a clear answer on if the Nexus 6 supported Verizon VoLTE.

    It does support enhanced lte it was patched in. I don't know about now, but it was supported. You may want to try again. When happened to me they said they couldn't find it because they were looking under moto and not google. I don't think they support moto phones made before lenovo bought them. You could just do sim swap after u activate.
