    On the iPhone 6 you have to manually select XLTE by selecting voice + data, I don't see it on the iPad

    XLTE and selecting voice + data have absolutely nothing to do with each other and are totally unrelated.

    XLTE isn't something you can turn on or off. It's just Verizon's marketing term for what they call the AWS spectrum they're using in some markets for extra capacity. What you're selecting on your iPhone is VoLTE (voice over LTE) and since the iPad isnt a phone it can't do it.

    If you have an iPad mini 2 or newer or an iPad Air or newer, then your iPad is capable of using the AWS frequency bands that Verizon calls XLTE.
