In December 2016, I upgraded from my old, reliable Samsung S4 to a new Samsung S7, at which point I had to give up my grandfathered plan to change to $59.00/month, 2gb data + unlimited calling. Since doing so, my new S7 has been sporadic in terms of reception/coverage. Often, when it does show as being in LTE coverage...if I try to pick up an incoming call, make an outgoing call, or send a text, it reverts to 4G, and does not allow a call/text to go through. Additionally, I receive occasional text messages stating that I am roaming internationally (US) in areas in which I have never received them before ie, my home, which is several km away from the US border.
At this point, I am waiting out the required period to pay off my tab (90 days, I believe?) so that I can port my number to my husband's carrier. I would like my phone to work as a phone...not simply a camera or a tablet when in Wifi.
Is anyone else experiencing anything similar, or can anyone offer a resolution to get me through to March, when I can pay off my tab?
