    My iPhone 6 has had poor reception since I bought it, as well as many dropped calls everyday. I have had verizon for many years, have not moved in years, been using iPhones, 4s, 5, 5s so I'm not new to iPhones.
    Apple swapped out the phone, it's been restored from new, network settings reset, new SIM card. Verizon has been doing troubleshooting on it as well and I have a system engineer working on it.
    My wife's iphone 6 has had no issues, she always has more signal than I do even next to each other.
    Has anyone had issues like this?

    Same with my 6+. I drop calls everyday and this has never happened with any other phone. Same for my Wife's 6+ but my daughters 5S is fine.

    I shut off LTE and it's much better, my phone is more important than the LTE. Verizon tells me the phone can't switch from LTE to 3G without dropping the call, they blame the phone.

    Same here. Never had problems on previous iPhones, but my 6 drops at least a call a day, if not more. I make 20-30 calls a day

    This is correct. Verizon's network can't hand off an LTE voice call to the regular CDMA network.

    I have not experienced any problems with VZW (VoLTE). No dropped calls. I have been in fringe areas dropping to 1x, and still no problems.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I love that last part.
    They blame the phone for the crippling and inefficient tech they put out in order to say the iPhone can finally do talk and pull carrier data as the same time too.


    If you dropped to 1x then you dropped the volte call period.
    So it is a problem.

    I have noticed that my iPhone 6 plus signal is not as strong as my lgg3

    Another thing I don't get is, when I shut off LTE from data only even, the phone shows more signal.
