    *228 is used on legacy devices (3G only). You might actually fry the modem or sim card if you do that in certain newer devices. Well not actually fry it, but in other words mess it up.
    I really have no idea. I never used *228.

    I know Verizon is going to be 100% VoLTE soon but as far as I know, I believe there's only one phone right now that doesn't have a CDMA radio for voice/text. I want to say it's a ZTE flip phone. I'd hate to be in a fringe area relying exclusively on LTE, that may be a yuuuge gamble for Big Red.

    As much as Verizon is lambasted for using CDMA, CDMA is why Verizon has the best overall coverage. I think few people, even many Americans, realize how large and sparsely populated the United States is. The average cell phone tower in Europe has 3 or 4 times the population living within its range as a cell phone tower in the US.

    CDMA has better range than GSM, which means that Verizon can cover the same area as a GSM carrier with less towers.

    LTE range is relatively short. Verizon (and other carriers) are putting up microcells to increase LTE coverage. The logistics of covering the US make it a costly endeavor. They've still got to pay the bills. I would hate to have to rely on LTE coverage right now, even Verizon's.

    You've hit the nail on the head.

    This nation is quite unique, in that regard.

    Hello and I am also one of the few Windows phone hold outs...My trusty Icon battery is just about done, so I went and found an HP x3 for verizon on the microsoft store...The thing is, I am having the same issues as you do...1x during calls and not receiving or able to send texts from time to time.

    Did you ever get this resolved? I contacted Verizon, and they added the VoLTE to my line, but it still does not work. I guess I am just hoping someone can tell me how to make this phone work right.

    I truly want to love this handset, but at the same time my Icon was by far superior if these issues do not get fixed.

    I hope someone can help?

    Thank you and God bless!
