    Just signed up for verizon yesterday on their unlimiited data plan and upon installing apps/browsing internet I am getting beyond terrible results. I proved it's not a 'dead zone' by having a friends exact model/carrier come by and test them out side by side.

    I bought this phone off craigslist in "mint" condition from a cool guy that I contacted and he insists it's fine and even offered a refund- it is still under warranty as well. Could this be hardware? Or something SIM/network related? Any insight would be great, we all know verizons phoneline.. Got me nowhere today!

    There are photos of the tests, any insight would be great.

    Since it's under warranty, take it to the apple store for diagnosis.

    I did just that with a gsm iPhone 6s because I seem to be only getting the bars on signal while an iPhone 6s plus was getting 5 bars.

    Turns out my phone is fine and download speed is excellent even with two or three bars.
