    Anyone experiencing issues with Verizon iPhone 7 plus with bad reception. I seem to have issues when traveling as in switching towers. My connections drops and it takes a few minutes to reconnect. I'm currently in a place now and I'm getting 1x and my wife's iPhone 6s Plus is getting LTE. I tried resetting network settings but that didn't work.
    My wife's and my iPhone 7 are both getting horrible reception compared to our 6s's. Dropping calls, much lower bars than in same places with the 6s. New iPhone was supposed to be better, faster network and it is worse.

    Go into cellular > cellular data options > then enable LTE for data only

    It works, yes losing the ability to talk and surf the web at the same time sucks but at least this way you don't have to worry about the "no service" message. I've done this and it work.
    I did this with my 7 and it improved a bit, at least the percentage for " no cell service " went down ..

    The news is starting to spread. Google "Iphone 7 Verizon poor reception". Medium-major tech sites are now covering it. It's a pretty big issue (widespread). Of course, Verizon and Apple are pointing fingers at each other. Sorry, boys, but playing the blame game doesn't help the consumer. Collaborate for a fix.

    Interesting that I don't see any articles on imore about this yet. I was hoping they would. They are pretty good at getting official responses.

    And PLEASE - if you are having issues, please make sure to officially report it to BOTH Verizon and Apple!
    Yes, I've seen that. Would be nice if someone made an official statement. I know I'm with AT&T and not Verizon, but I am going to guess it's an Apple issue bc I'm experiencing issues on my 7 as well.

    Interestingly enough, I live in a fairly rural area where I am frequently switching towers and being in low reception areas. I have yet to experience any issues that I have noticed.

    I spoke to VZ today and they are very aware of the issue. They are working on a fix. The supervisor I spoke to added my number to what she said was a very long list of complaints. She stated that I would receive a text when a fix has been deployed.

    As another poster mentioned, it is important that everyone having issues call to let them know. She said the more they hear the faster they act.

    So has this issue been fixed? I don't consider setting LTE to data only a satisfactory solution

    iOS 10.0.3 fixed it already, didn't it?

    I think so. Remember to read that main reason for this update were to solve this issue. But as I live in Brazil I can't confirm if it really solved.

    Did you have problems before the update? You may simply live in a high signal area?

    Yes, 10.0.3 has fixed the connection issue. If you are STILL having issues, I'd bring it in.

    We (me and my fianc) have not had any connectivity issues.
    We have had the 7 Plus since launch day on VZ and everything has been great
    If 10.0.3 didn't fix anything for you, I'd take in

    Was on 10.1 beta due to a back up. Today I did a fresh install to 10.0.3. Since no Wifi issues seems stronger. So hoping. Getting three bars at home which is better than a single prior

    I am on Verizon and we have a 7 Plus and two 7s and all three were losing reception regularly. Since the 10.0.3 update, we have had no issues at all. I'm fairly certain they fixed whatever was causing the issue.

    Since the 10.0.3 update...HORRIBLE! I had to reboot my iPhone 7+ atleast 6 times this weekend, missed messages, low signal...and the freezing is the worst.

    Just saw the 10.1...hoping this fixes it. I'm on Verizon.

    I updated to 10.0.3 and still have connection issues. Went from wifi to 3G then had to go into airplane mode to get LTE back.

    I have been on 10.1 and I haven't had any issues. I go between 3G and LTE at my work. 3G in the building and LTE when I step out.

    Try to do a reset, or wait for a software update, if it still does not work return it to the carrier.

    How were you able to go back to 10.0.3? Can you provide a quick link to the procedures. Thanks!
