    Am I on LTE? If not, how do I get on to LTE?

    I have an iPhone 5s from work on VZW postpaid which says "Verizon LTE" in the upper right corner.
    I have a personal iPhone 5s on the PP 4G plan, but it only says "TFW" in the upper right corner.

    Is my personal phone on LTE? If not, what should I do to get it on LTE?

    If I'm misunderstanding something, please tell me.

    Thanks.

    Your iPhone 5s on PPC is an LTE phone, so you ARE getting LTE data.

    Are you on Page Plus, no? When you activated your personal iPhone 5s, who's SIM card did you use?

    TFW means you are connected to a TracFone Wireless carrier, and PPC is owned by TracFone. So, your phone reporting that it is connected to TFW, instead of Verizon, by itself shouldn't be a major concern.

    Thanks to both of you for your replies.

    (BTW: I knew TWF = TracFone Wireless, but thanks anyway.)

    Does it now say TFW LTE after updating the "Enable LTE" setting?
