Just wanted to post my experiences with the VZW iPhone 5 when it's used with a VZW 3G network extender. In short, the iPhone 5 behaves the way I want it to when the network extender is in range. My house has lousy VZW coverage indoors and I work from home, so a network extender is essential. When I'm indoors and not on a call, the phone shows two bars of LTE coverage. As soon as I make a call, I hear the two beeps signifying that the call is routing through the network extender and the signal strength changes to five bars within 2 or 3 seconds. As soon as I hang up the call, the phone goes back to showing two bars of LTE coverage. I hope this information is helpful for those who were wondering how the iPhone 5 behaves in the presence of the Verizon 3G network extender. I was concerned that I would have to manually switch the LTE radio off on the iPhone 5 when at home to force the iPhone 5 to pick up my 3G network extender, but that is not the case.
