LTE Network Extender It's incompatible with the iPhone 7 plus.

Please update the LTE network extender as it's incompatible with the iPhone 7 and 7+. I confirmed this with several other owners of this device. Spent over an hour with tech-support that was clueless as to why it wouldn't work just to find out that it's incompatible. I assume the network extender needs a firmware update pronto please.

Has Verizon fixed this problem yet?

The iPhone 7 is wifi calling compatible.  Have you tried it?

As more and more are wifi calling compatible, the less need for network extenders. 

Wifi calling is portable and works on any wifi, while network extenders have limitations.

Does anyone know if the 7 Plus is compatible yet? There are conflicting reports.

It doesn't need the network extender.  Just turn on wifi calling.

I have to express doubt....  wifi calling works extremely well.  Have you even turned it on?  

You need to understand there is a reason newer phones are not compatible with microcell.  This should become the standard as more phones are wifi calling compatible.  Microcell and network extenders will become passé. 

Wifi calling is also portable.  You can use it on any wifi, in Europe, etc.
