    No idea about my internal IP, but my external one has remained the same since day one.

    Neve checked. Curious why you would want to know you lte IP, you cant access your phone from the internet via your lte IP as you wont be able to do any port translation on your providers internet facing router. And if you want configure something on the internet to accept connections from your outside lte ip, it wont just be you, it will be loads of other users hiding behind that address.

    Thats impossible for any carrier currently on the planet ... no one gives Static IP to LTE/Mobile devices ... you will always get a Dynamic IP for a Mobile data connection ... if you are looking at your Carrier External IP then that also is load-balanced and will change

    Yes, of course, I'm lying. Sorry, I didn't realise.

    It's *not* impossible. Quite often ISPs allocate batches of people to certain proxies. Since I've had the connection, my external IP has not changed. I better call up Three and explain that some guy on the internet says they're doing some kind of black magic or something.

    That is 100% false info . Verizon will give you a static IP for $500 on a 4G device;)

    I can confirm that the carrier you mention gives out static IPs to non-phone devices.

    Agreed on the money factor but I think person paying that would be a minority

    Agreed on the non-phone device but since we are in the iPhone forum I assumed we are talking about phone devices

    Agreed on the proxy however, thats not YOUR external IP since you can never redirect inside to ports on your phone if you use that IP. External IP needs to be specific to your phone and be accessible from the internet which a Proxy system will not allow (unless port mapping is done on ISP side which is highly doubtful). Routing is a different game.
