I was recently in Gateway, CO (a small community in western CO). I had 3 - 4 bars on my HTC 8x but when I attempted to read email or view a web page I was not able to. I got a message that I was in an Extended Network area.
What features/services are/are not available in an Extended Network area? Is there any way to get these features/services in an Extended Network area?
Hello JohnDD! In review of this coverage area, I found that this area has extended coverage. Data and text messages may not work in an extended coverage area. Voice calls will work; however, the extended coverage indicator may appear.
