True or False? I heard that power is lowered on a prepaid plan.

i.e., if I had a fancy phone and was paying $300/mo I can hear crystal clear.  Right now conversations start okay then people say they can't hear me or my voice is fuzzy, so I wander around my apt until they can hear.  It's not the apt because I've had other phones and they were okay.

False.  I am on prepaid with an LG G2 and I have the same level of service I had with Postpaid.

When you had other phones that were okay, did you have Verizon then or another carrier?

I had T-Mobile. I got Verizon in mid-June of this year.

I'm gonna say it's not because you are on prepaid, you're just experiencing different cell reception.

A predicate phone has nothing to do with a towers transmission.  Lesser quality parts in certain low budget phones can affect reception and quality.

Thanks. I will definitely ask about this at a brick & mortar Verizon store!

*Prepaid....I have no idea how a PC auto-corrects to *predicate.
