I can't seem to Activate LTE I have reprovisioned signed up my iPad keeps dropping 3G then shows lte for 2 seconds the bars are constantly going up and down. Any suggestions? The 3G works fine for a few mins then it seems to keep reprovisioning and if I get LTE it's only for a few secs

I do not have a dataplan, and it says 3G with Wifi Turned off. I am supposed to be blanketed in LTE too, but want to see if I can be sure I am blanketed in LTE before buying a data plan.

I bought the data plan, I am still not getting 3g. This is stupid. Their maps and their checker all said i should have PERFECT 4g.

I did not see LTE until I bought a plan. It was showing 3G until I bought the 20 dollar plan. If you are in the LTE area (not extended LTE) then I'll bet it will show up after you get a data plan.

I got an alert that told me to reset subscriber settings when I was setting up. It is in your General settings, scroll down to Reset, then pick subscriber services. Then my iPad found verizon LTE.

Thanks for the confirmation, I feel much more at ease. I dread having thought of exchanging for an AT&T model..

Theres two options reprovision and spc, the SPC asks for a password i don't know what it is. I already reprovisioned a few times in the past 24 hours.
