    I've got a 5S and a 6 on VZW and get lousy cell service in the house, south shore of L.I., where you think their LTE would be rock solid. Goes to show the variables in cell service. The poor service is the primary reason I still have a land line and would kill for WiFi calling.

    May have to call VZW and do some ********.

    Who knows. Verizon is always last to roll anything out. It's nice to see that the network is there pri since they will be rolling out and testing 5G first. But at least do something about the wifi calling I am sure it's not to complicated for them.
    It involves the government (FCC) so It's always complicated!

    If necessary I will cancel and just go full time to T-Mobile my other provider, but I'm thinking I might be ok. I do not have a standard account. I have a plan that was never offered to the general public. My plan is 59 dollars for unlimited data & text, plus 450 anytime minutes, 5 friends and family free (did you know Verizon did that?), other verizon free, and nights and weekends free. This plan was never released to the public, and was only test marketed to select customers.

    It's only been about a month or so that Verizon has been allowing certain unlocked devices that weren't in a batch OEMed for Verizon on their network... supposedly, any iPhone 6 and above should work... as well as certain Android devices - Verizon can check an MEID of any device for suitability on their network.
    Experienced something similar with my Nexus6. Website said it wasn't compatible with VZW. Pull SIM from my 6+, put it in the Nexus6 and worked with no problem. Did not have to change APN either, LTE worked immediately. On my account (myVZW) it listed it as a Non VZW device but everything worked. Some devices simply won't work with VZW, however. Seems like iphones have no issue.

    Now my 5S that's on ATT will NOT work with a Verizon sim. Get the dreaded invalid SIM message. I believe that's because it does not have CDMA bands but it could be another issue.

    Oh and wifi calling IS a big deal for those of us that find ourselves in dungeons and bilges with no cell service whatsoever. But the 2.4GHz N seems to have -50dB down there...

    I agree. I've become so frustrated with Verizon over the past year, that I have decided to deal with Apple Stores exclusively and only keep Verizon as my network provider.
    I waited in line at my local Verizon store for 4 hours (1st in line), only for them to tell me they never got a shipment of 6s plus's in, they could have easily put a sign on the door stating this. Verizon appears not to be in a rush to please their customers lately just themselves, as well as last to implement anything to inhance their customers experience. Because their coverage is supiror in my area compared to the other big three, I'm going to stick with them, but if they weren't I would switch in a heartbeat.


    Verizon does not discuss inventory because they're not allowed to.

    This true.. Apple has VERY strict guidelines on what and how things are done with there products and services. They advise that no provider is allowed to disclose the quantity and other information. If a employee is caught doing so or reserving a unit, they will be terminated. Every transaction at all carriers is also monitored by apple, any carrier discounting the units more then they are the employee will be terminated and carrier could be fined or loose there ability to sell there products.. Apple stores can do more as its the company stores.. They want first dibs on anything since its there products...

    I got upset that my home didnt have good enough signal and i rasied heck, I threatened to leave so they suggested that network extender. Well they tried to charged me and I said you can either send me one for free ( just like T Mobile does (yes they suck as a carrier)) or ill be leaving to ATT. So they sent me a refurbished extender for free.

    As good as Verizon service is I don't feel the need for wifi calling and that's probably the same thing they are saying.

    It sucks where I'm sitting right now in my house. And there are 3 windows nearby. The whole "Verizon doesn't need it" argument is false.

    I have to agree. I have two dots with Verizon in my home and if it wasn't for WiFi I would have terrible service with Verizon at home, but everywhere else Verizon signal is good/better than the others.

    Short answer: Never.

    Long answer: Their network is top dog. Some do have issues in buildings or at home, but for the most part their coverage is rock solid. Verizon is in the business of raping charging customers for every little thing they even THINK about doing. Giving them the ability to use WiFi can threaten some of those fees or charges they love.

    I'm not so sure Verizon has anything to lose by letting their customers utilize wifi calling. Most people have unlimited minutes these days anyway. If anything, it frees up network bandwidth and retains customers who, for the most part, aren't under contract. I'm willing to bet that they're at least considering it since AT&T flipped the switch.

    Yes, thinking of switching to ATT even though they aren't much better in our neighborhood. At least there's the option of wifi calling.
