Airvanna working fine.


I can not call out. ( I tried 2 numbers ) received "We cannot complete your call at this time" error when calling out.


I can However complete a call to *2


Incoming calls work fine.


What component are they replacing at my local tower? Or is it something else completely?

MSC = a switching device in the Land line system?


Just to narrow it down a bit more

I was able to call out to a verizon cell and my wife's phone acts the same way.

No land lines out

cell to cell ok

incoming ok


I rebooted the airvanna and phones


while the airvanna was down I could call out while roaming (triangle) on another network.


as soon as airavnna re provisioned same thing.


Comcast connection 30-34 mps down 8-9 mps up


I'm guessing it will all fix itself

As long as your internet is still working it should be fine. I have no idea what type of landline you are calling, but the phone system could be out on that end, as you said that mobile to mobile was fine. Unless I am not understanding you correctly, it does not sound like a problem with the network. Personally I have found that BOOST phones do not work while in range of the airvana, as i suppose the PRL is not accepted by the network.

Good luck, and post back if you figure out why it was acting up.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
