Verizon wireless service has gone completely unusable
« on: July 27, 2020, 06:45:03 PM »
I have had Verizon for a bunch of years in Lakewood and overall the service was OK. Over the past few months if im not on WiFi I can barely make a call others on my family plan have the same issues.
I was traveling north jersey today and had numerous dropped calls so this is not a Lakewood issue with the towers there was talk about a couple months ago.
For some reason I cant use the phone and internet at the same time if im not on WiFi anymore.
I would love to hear if others are also having issues and what they have done or who to complain to. My bills are over 400 a month for the plan and would like to be reimbursed for the lack of service.

Time to switch to T-Mobile. I made the switch 5-6 years ago when T-Mobile was becoming competitive and I'm paying $150 taxes included for 6 unlimited lines, 2 tablets and 1 wearable after multiple free lines promos.
They are running a special at the moment, 4/$100, but might not be the best deal after taxes depending on the add-ons you are looking for.

If you can't use data and talk together you may have set your phone to CDMA. Double check that your using GSM/LTE and VoLTE

How can you use CDMA and GSM?

Believe it or not, it got so much better in jersey, while i remember a year ago or rather a few months ago it hardly worked, now i can say i have service in many more places, but overall i wouldnt really recommend to use T-Mobile primarily in Lakewood.
   But for someone living in Brooklyn thats your best bet.

 I have 7 lines and paying Close to $200+ with only 2gb for each line LTE 4g dta, and one line they gave 15gb or so.
 Re-tarted, i need something to swap to, the megenta or something similar with unlmtd.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Global mode

Did you mean restarted or re targeted for a new plan?

+1 about being more awesome in Brooklyn. Cam confirm that Data speeds are faster in NYC though I assume all networks invest more there

I was dropping most of my calls on Verizon 2 months ago, after calling they gave me a home extender. https://www.verizon.com/products/samsung-4g-lte-network-extender-2/ The rep said they have been having a large issue with dropped calls. And have given/ sold more of these extenders this year than previously.

I heard they are doing that however I have Wi-Fi at home I don't pay Verizon to give me a home extender so it should work in my home I could use Google for that

I don't pay them to have it a booster I pay them to give me the service I pay my Internet for that reason Wi-Fi works perfectly that's also only a solution for the home when I dropped calls on the road it doesn't help
