  1. I know you were referring to Sprint but Verizon VoLTE is able to handoff to their LTEiRA partners and vise versa so it's definitely possible. On my Tmobile phone it will not handoff from a VoLTE call on US Cell to Tmobile. It won't go from a wifi call to VoLTE either on USC.

    There’s band 71 live on a tower in Omaha now. Also on one south of Omaha on I29. I mapped some on cellmapper Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It won’t work to call into the regular support team, it takes engineering to fix it and I got access through them by emailing John. The regular support team just give canned responses and I usually know more then they do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I was able to connect to USC yesterday afternoon. Works great. Shortly after that Tmobile called me to check if it was working. I pushed her on what they changed/fixed. She didn't know but said a lot of "technical jargon" was being passed around in emails regarding my account that was over her head. She did mention one of the last things they did was whitelist my phone. Not sure why they would need to do that because I'm using a Tmobile branded V30. She also said other customers were having issues connecting to USC. I did swap my SIM over to a Pixel 2XL and it wouldn't connect..so the phone does matter. I've used quite a bit of USC data now and it's showing as native usage on my account. I tested trying to carry a VoLTE call from USC to Tmobile and it won't do it . It just stayed on USC network even into Tmobile native and what finally dropped the call was when I crossed into NE where USC don't have VoLTE enabled. I was hoping it would be seamless coverage like Verizon and their LTEiRA partners. I can cross between their networks and it won't drop the call.

    I still haven't been able to connect anywhere in Iowa. The last couple days I've been all over Iowa and I've never connected. I sent an email to John Ledger which got me in contact with executive response team. They have been looking into it and they let me know last Monday there was a problem on the backend of my account and they have escalated it up to engineering. So you always have to manually connect? It won't automatically connect on it's own? What about when your on a VoLTE call on TMobile and you cross over to USC, would it hold the call? These are all scenarios I look forward to testing.

    I’ve been working in Dayton the last couple weeks and it won’t connect there either..that’s not to far from where you connected. I’ve been wondering if it could be a SIM issue? But I can connect to Vaeiro Wireless in NE and ATT HSPA just fine so I don’t think it is.. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Haha yea I knew you were here to. Like I said on reddit I’ve contacted support and also TForce and they aren’t any help at all. I’ve tried my SIM in iPhone 8, OnePlus 3, V30 and Pixel and they all refuse to connect. Also my ATT Mobley hotspot line now connects to USC LTE. I wonder if a smartphone line on a VoLTE capable phone would work to.. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    There's huge holes in iWireless's coverage and also a lot of it's edge yet. Sometime in the last couple days USC LTE roaming showed up on T-Mobiles coverage map as partner 4G LTE coverage in a bunch of Iowa but I'm still unable to connect to it. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Seen that map several days ago..US Cellular LTE roaming still isn't live in Iowa which that map is showing. I guess they have a couple months yet.

    http://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/2017/09/14/verizon-montana-drop-affect-emergency-services/666350001/ Somebody is quoted in this article they used .07 GB the last 3 months. Also the rural carrier in this area is not signing up new customers so people have no other options.

    I know the one did very little tethering not sure about the other.

    Not sure about managing after 22GB but Verizon is cancelling users that were using less then 22GB. I’ve heard of one that uses ~13GB and another in the 16 range.

    Yes this is right. If you have a Verizon phone that has VoLTE enabled it shows Verizon and it is impossible to tell that your roaming on LTEIRA even when looking at third party apps. If the Verizon phone is not using VoLTE it will show Extended LTE in these areas as it is using CDMA for voice.
