My phone and service is through vzw, but I live in an area not serviced by them - its carolina west wireless.

Prior two two weeks ago, my phone (and all other vzw phones here) went through cww on extended roaming with really REALLY crappy 3g speeds. Then suddenly, the 4g indicator was lit one morning. I checked with other vzw users in the area theirs was suddenly working as well. CWW customers however dont see, to have 4g still.

I know cww contracted with vzw to build their 4g infrastructure, but last estimate is that it is still a year away from being turned up.

Any chance my 4g is now roaming on att, sprint, or someone else? How do i see who owns the tower im hitting?

Btw, my zip is 28659...

Not sure if this will solve your problem, but I think if you go to

settings-more....-mobile networks -access pointnames

Here you will see what network you are connected to and capable of picking up

It says Verizon Internet VZWINTERNET. I assume that would be for data only, since my phone still shows I am in extended roaming?
