Can I revert to a previous "carrier update" on my 6+? things are worse since updating.

I can't say for sure the carrier update caused the problem but the timing fits.

My phone has worse reception after the carrier update a few weeks ago. Can I "downgrade" to the old one? Seriously, I have fewer bars in the same areas as before and I now often have people say they have a hard time hearing me like there is a bad a connection. This never happened before the carrier update and now it happens fairly frequently.

I should also mention that I have tried several types of resets including network reset and clean wipe and reinstall ofthe phone.  still have the 18.1 carrier settings though. still often have a bad connection where it used to be good.

Not if you want to keep your warranty.  In other words, no you cannot go back.

and what if I cared more about my phone having good reception more than a

warranty?

Then I could not tell you anything else according to forum rules.  And, if that's the case, and you didn't already know, then you should probably not try.

Yes, and I believe you'd ask me how to do the unmentionable things, for which I cannot do.

I'd never ask anyone to break the rules while on a forum...

It's a process that could potentially leave you with an expensive brick...'nuff said.

I doubt bricking is why verizon has a chokehold on firmware.  bricks mean more sales.
