Phone: iphone 6s ios 11.2.5
History: Had service on PagePlus and decided to change to VZ prepaid expecting a little better service (oops). Got new VZ SIM and loaded it up. Phone worked fine
Text worked fine
Bar at top read LTE but every time I used browser or gmail app, received message no cellular data. Wifi off and LTE settings on voice and data or just data, same issue.
If I turn off the LTE, I can get 3g data.
Two 45+ min. chat sessions with VZ going through their entire script twice, still no LTE. Been through all of the basic approaches.
60 mins. with apple tech, no LTE.
Things tried- reinstall SIM
Reset Network settings
Erase all content and settings
Anyone else had success resolving this?

Actually, the Prepay department was not able to help. I am up over 10 hours on this issue and still no resolution. I have been through the tech script a few times, spent hours on hold, had someone try to sell me postpaid as if that would solve my connection issue, and when I simply asked for a new SIM card got put on hold for the person who could authorize that and got bounced back to the original ZV menu.
So no I cannot say that your answer was helpful as it cost me many hours and I still can only get 3g!
WheresmyLTE, we appreciate you letting us know about your current experience. It is also possible that the version of the iPhone you are using just does not support the LTE bands we operate on. Some iPhone models do not operate on the bands that we operate off of. These are sometimes associated with devices that are from carriers that operate off of different LTE bands. If the device is picking up everything else but our LTE, this very well may be the case. If you have access to a different iPhone, try swapping SIM cards to see if the same issue can be replicated.
