    Poor Verizon voice signal on Tracfone

    I was having problems with my Verizon voice signal on Tracfone. After a very short time on a phone call, people couldn't hear me. So, I bought a slightly used Pixel 6 pro (BYOP), thinking a better phone would have a better signal. No luck there.

    I live in a place where I can't install an outdoor antenna for a signal booster. So, I'm looking at Surecall EZ, but they are pretty expensive. Any other ideas?

    Thanks!

    If your home is the main problem, why not use Google Voice? We use GV for all of our outgoing calls and you save TF units also. Talk, text, picture messaging, voicemail. It's great.

    Turn on WiFi calling and when the signal is poor it will use wifi calling.

    Thats what I'm gonna have to do when TF makes me switch to a VZW sim.

    Thanks...both good ideas. But I want to use my assigned TF number (not GV) for business purposes, My phone does not support wi-fi calling. I think TF intentionally limits wi-fi calling even though I believe they charge TF minutes for wi-fi calls.

    Pixel 6 Pro should support wifi calling. You probably need to contact TF CS to have it provisioned.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy A32 5G using BYOP TF/AT&T sim and a Moto G Stylus 2021 with a TF/VZW sim and wifi calling works on both. Also works on my iPhone XR running on AT&T or Verizon towers.

    Thanks! Wi-fi calling works on my TF branded Samsung A13. I'll give TF CS a call.

    My husband and I live in an apartment complex an many people have to go outside for a clear signal with the exception of people who have Verizon.

    He has an iPhone 13 Mini using ATT and Wifi calling has to be turned on in our apartment to get a clear signal but it works. So Wifi calling would work best for you if your phone supports it.
