So I have an iPhone 5 that I mainly use in the Kansas City area and occasionally in Baltimore when visiting family. Normally I would expect that I would have LTE for data and my phone would drop to 3G for calls as Verizon phones should. But over several months now, I've noticed that when I'm in a call, it will show nothing next to Verizon at the top, and after I hang up it will switch to 1X and then LTE. No 3G whatsoever. Meanwhile I can turn off LTE in settings, and it will switch to 3G for data just fine. So what gives? Is my phone dropping to some really old pre-1X network? Call quality seems fine, so I'm not sure it's that. Is it on 3G but just not showing it? I know VoLTE is coming, but it's not in my area yet. One would think the 3G network could still be there for calls. It's just annoying since my boyfriend can make calls on HSPA+ 4G on T-Mobile. Does Verizon just assume that no one makes calls anymore?
