Have you rebooted your phones since moving to the new area?

What is the relevance of doing an internet speed test when I am having issue with my cell service?

Thank you for reply. Yes I have rebooted and also reset all settings.

Rebooting the phone is equivalent to what the *228 reprogramming code used to do for CDMA only phones. If the rebooting didn't work, either the coverage map is wrong, the signal happens to be weak in that location, or the SIM cards may have been corrupted. You may have to request VZW open a network trouble ticket to investigate the issue.
