    Ultra mobile 3G LTE required for sms?

    A friend uses ultra mobile and wasnt getting text messages. She called ultra and she was told the phone needs to be an LTE phone. Doesn't sound right to me..
    Did they change something?

    I tested her sim in my s8 and text did start to work and come in.

    If your friend is in an area where 3G signal is weak or doesn’t exist, then it’s possible she needs an LTE device.

    Do phone calls work on her phone? Is there data service?

    3g wasnt weak and calls worked. Text started to work properly after we swapped phones trying to test it out
