    The main issue is that no carrier can build/maintain a cellular network where they don't hold an FCC license. It has always been this way and why network roaming exists. If a carrier cannot provide...

    Just the "price of progress". Doesn't make sense to run 3 different network technologies simultaneously in the long run (3G "CDMA", 4G "VOLTE/LTE", 5G). It is redundant and expensive to...

    Verizon has not activated any CDMA-only devices since 2019. While the iPhone may support CDMA, it won't be activated as anything but 4G (VOLTE/LTE) or 5G in the US. CDMA is essentially a dead...

    The point I am making is that CDMA isn't even available in some markets nationwide on Verizon. What difference does it make having a CDMA capable device if the network has been shut down in your...

    The remaining cellular network that used CDMA, Verizon, stopped activating CDMA devices in 2019. They only activate VOLTE devices. Prepaid/MVNO providers do not activate CDMA phones any longer for...

    The battery capacity/usage is much better on the newer model phones. You don't have to get the "+" model unless you are a heavy user, then it would be well worth the cost. Yes, they make wireless...

    Sorry, I don't have a solution to that. That's why I suggested that you contact your carrier. While it may prevent most unwanted calls, the possibility like you explained can happen. It will never...

    Phone contracts are a thing of the past, carriers now finance phones for 12 or 24 months instead.

    If you bring your own phone/device there is no commitment you need to make to the carrier. All...

    There should be a way to manually enter phone #'s to your phonebook to prevent that. Unfortunately, some calls could get blocked in error. Think of it like a false positive situation in a medical...
