My phone started showing extended where Verizon should be I have not left the county where my phone is registered. I have restored my phone and its network settings. I went to Verizon and they actually sent me a warranty phone and it still says extended. I know its not a big deal but it bugs me and if it cant be fixed I just want to know what is causing the issue. It just started a couple weeks ago.

They figured out what the problem with my phone was. My phone plan use to be a alltel plan and they had to sync my phone back to a verizon plan because it was thinking that it was still a alltel plan and that made it extended

Have you been able to resolve this issue?

I am having the same issue with my iPhone 5.  Have tried a number of unsuccessful fixes including resetting of network settings and complete erase and resetting of the phone (both over the air and through iTunes).

rrstd,

I am so sorry to hear you are having this issue. When did this issue begin? What zipcode are you in? Did you do any software updates around the time this issue began?

Do you have a grandfathered plan from another provider?

I did mine was a grandfathered plan from alltel and after the ios upgrade it made it think that it was a previous alltel plan.

Yes,  We are also on a grandfathered Alltel plan (one basic phone on the plan is still an old Alltel Phone).

So I talked to a very nice women at verizon and she was able to re-sync my phone so the plan showed as a verizon plan and it took care of it. I cant remember the terminology that she used it may not have been re-sync but it was something like that.
