    I got it working! I let my service get cancelled and reactivated it with a new airtime ePIN. I turn the phone off and back on and then, viola!

    How old was your sim card?

    ----------

    I've only been with NET10 for the past 2 months. I bought my SIM card from TigerDirect in that multipack that comes with 3 SIM cards. 2 AT&T-compatible and 1 T-Mobile- compatible. It was a regular size SIM card so I had to trim it to fit my iPhone 5.

    ----------

    I don't think it matters because I had LTE turned on and NET10 started offering the LTE coverage before I lost service. It was only until I reactivated my service and SIM card that the LTE signal showed up on my phone.

    Oh ok because I have an old Straight Talk and Net10 ATT Sim card I was gonna activate and kinda wanted to get LTE but didn't know if I needed a new sim card, Which seems like I don't. What APN did you use?

    That's the funny part. I didn't have to manually load the APN settings. Before I reactivated I had updated to 7.0.3 and was asked if I wanted to update my carrier settings. Of course, I did, and since then I deleted my APN profile and didn't need it to access data. So after I activated, LTE just popped up by itself. :D my carrier settings says TFW(tracfone wireless) 15.6 under settings>general>about.
