3G 4G reception


3G 4G reception

Postby Philip Parent » Tue Nov 21, 2017 5:13 pm

I am having difficulty getting coverage in my apartment building with an LG 3G phone. I was told that one way to deal with that problem was to get a new SIM card - some kind of updating which would lead to better ability to make and receive calls. Another person said I should get a 4G cellphone and that this newer, more powerful phone should solve the problem for me. Is one or two of these things true? What is the cost of a new SIM card, if this is one way to solve my problem? Thank you.

I believe my concern falls into this same category but since the original post was not answered publicly, I can't just read the answer/response.

While traveling recently I was in an area covered according to your coverage map (see attachment)

and retained cell service but mobile data was NOT available. I have a Samsung BYOP that utilizes the Verizon network. A person with me had direct service from Verizon and also had a Samsung and was able to use their mobile data.

Why are Tracfone customers limited in functionality compared to those who have service with the network provider?
