Iphone 8 Plus Extended Network When LTE calling is activated?

Just recently activated an Iphone 8 plus from Verizon on Sprint, when the phone is connected to LTE calling & data it no longer displays Sprint in the upper left it now say Extended Network all the time but when I turn off the LTE calling and just have it for the data, "Sprint" re appears in the left. I know I have good service because my Note 8 never goes in to extended network and the phones are next to each other. Nothing seems to be impacted by the change in name, just curious as to why this happens and if there is a fix for it.

 

Thanks.

Did the Note 8 come from Verizon or Sprint? What city and state are you located in?

Iphone 8 came from Verizon, Brooklyn, NY.

Re: Iphone 8 Plus Extended Network When LTE calling is activated?

What about the Note 8? Was is purchased from Sprint, or was it a BYOD from Verizon also?

BYOD device as well from Verizon.

Re: Iphone 8 Plus Extended Network When LTE calling is activated?

When you're looking at LTE calling and data, are you enabling VoLTE?

On the Iphone 8 plus there is no "enable Volte", you just go to settings and activate LTE for data & voice. Or am I doing something wrong?

Re: Iphone 8 Plus Extended Network When LTE calling is activated?

VoLTE is available in your area and for the iPhone 8. It's not available on the Note 8. Here's the steps for the iPhone:

1. On the device, open the Settings
2. Select Cellular.
3. Select Cellular Data Options.
4. Select Enable LTE
5. In the Enable LTE, select Voice & Data.

 

VoLTE requires iOS 12.1.1 or higher.

Sorry but you are mistaken, I am on my Note 8 currently and have Volte on.Screenshot_20190913-134816_Wi-Fi Calling.jpg

 

Re: Iphone 8 Plus Extended Network When LTE calling is activated?

Awesome to hear. The Note 8 isn't listed in our phones that automatically come with it, so it may have arrived through a software update. 

 

So, have you reviewed your coverage area? Are there any patches of extended coverage around you?

No there are no extended networks in my area, it must be a software glitch with the phone, because when I only do LTE data on the iphone 8 the sprint name comes up... and my Note 8 has never had extended network on it.. the two phones can be side by side and when volte is turned on in the iPhone 8 it will say extended network even though it isn't on one.

Re: Iphone 8 Plus Extended Network When LTE calling is activated?

It could be. Unfortunately, there's always a chance that BYODs don't work the same as other BYODs or Sprint branded phones.
