    I have Verizon for 4 years I had Verizon directly like paid Verizon directly had their service I got so mad at them that I got rid of them and went to straight talk which is also Verizon. And I've never ever had good speeds in the house that I'm in and I'm in the middle of town just don't have it. I've reported I've made reports that number is that everything I can think of and nothing changes look at these results and this is average this is about what it usually is all the time
    Forgive me I don't see the option to add a picture so I'll just tell you what it is

    Welcome to Android Central! MVNOs typically have lower priority on the cell towers, so if there's a lot of Verizon traffic, that might be why your Straight Talk speeds are poor. It might be time to look for a different carrier (i.e., AT&T or T-Mobile).

    Verizon to ST. Out of the fire and jumped in the frying pan. Did you get a new Sim and call their cs?

    What phone do you have? Is it a Verizon branded device? Is it the same one you've had for over 4 years?

    With all due respect I've been dealing with this for 4 years three different phones there's absolutely no speed. I'm smacked up in the middle of town smacked up in the middle of towers and when I do the speed test they suck every time consistently and I wasn't complaining about my straight talk speeds I was complaining about my Verizon speeds they definitely takes me away from the prepaid to give to the post page during those busy times that doesn't happen so much on straight talk and I am registered under a different account I don't know what happened just one of the things my phone likes to do jump all over the place

All updated all had their own new SIM cards I've been on the phone with Verizon tech support I've been on the phone via chat with tech support they keep telling me to open up a number for report file this file that we do it but nothing ever changes I've done I can't tell you how many resets I've done everything everybody's asked me every time and it changes nothing

    I used to work for Verizon, Straight Talk and others that use their towers don't always have access to all towers and they are lower priority compared to Verizon customers. If the tower is busy data speeds get significantly reduced and calls can even be dropped.

    I noticed from your other thread that you are having volume control problems, alarm issues and Wi-Fi dropping. Has anyone looked at your phone and its setup?

    This is the third phone two note twenties ultra 5G and now an ultra s22 and they're all the same the speeds are all the same as a matter of fact I looked at one of my old speed test for my Note 20 and it was almost identical to what this one is my s22 ultra definitely not the same phone new SIM cards everything still the same

    Understand this completely I understand this. What I'm saying is had Verizon regular paid account and my speeds were horrible. I left them for other reasons other than that just they suck in general my opinion straight talk also uses four different carriers towers because of my phone number we stayed with Verizon yes it's prepaid yes the speech should be worse but they're the same as they were with Verizon.

    Are you aware that you can 'port' your phone number to another carrier? You don't need to stay with Verizon because you want to keep your existing phone number.

    Yes, thank you. I had to port it even I recently switched. After speaking with neighbors getting to find which carrier is best for our area there's only one that doesn't get complaints. At&t.
    Thank you to everyone for the efforts have suggestions especially the pictures who have read thoroughly and understood the true full issue. And NOT that it's the OPERATOR OF THE PHONE.

    Are your low speed issues only when at your place? If you go outside or somewhere else in the city, are your speeds better?

    Not with this phone. I did with my note 20 and it turns out they were just bad phones. Attempted repair, then finally replaced and it was bad too.
    Yesterday I called Samsung to find out what was wrong with the upcomng alarm issue and to find out why my screen glitches with every switch of app or page change. They had me perform a settings reset. Now I have even more issues. My messaging app.. No messaging app will work except the Samsung messaging app and still there upcomng alarm is off the wall, random times and days, screen glitches even more. And the end result of our conversation was they can't help me, I need to go to u break I fix store. Can't tell you how many times I was there last year. I will never buy another Samsung again. May year I had to buy a phone to use so I could send the one on to repair. Samsung does not offer any type of loaner not received for a price. They've ordered so many discounts that they never apply. And they actually wanted to get balance owed before they would apply any discount. Customer service representative that I bought the phone from this s22 labeled my trade in as a z-fold giving me an extra $300 off that now I have to pay because I only had a note 20. They have been so shady and deceptive I will never buy another Samsung ever. But anyway back to the problem at hand I guess I'll be going down to your break I fix once again this has been going on for over a year I don't know how somebody can have so much bad luck I don't have any third party apps that are bad I'm pretty sure I don't mess with the wrong settings there was nothing they had to change before so I don't know I feel like I need to be at the geek squad or something

    Other areas yes. Outside is minutely better. Not much. I have done is I have been on the phone with Verizon tech continually I have run speeds for them continually I have reported continually that the speeds in this spot are bad I am like right in the center where the towers meet or don't meet honestly it just happens to be that one little dead zone but nobody's doing anything about it seems like I didn't know there was something I could do on my end to improve my speeds because obviously the cell phone companies really don't care. I didn't know if there was a setting in my phone or if there's different band I could choose I mean I don't know is there something I can download I read somewhere something about making sure that your numbers are right for everything and I don't know what that means no clue. See what I keep reading about pre-installed Samsung apps can mess up your phone I'm truly 100 completely percent believing because I have uninstalled and reinstalled everything that has anything to do with events on my phone which is what I was told to do and I'm still having the wrong upcoming alarm I don't get it I just don't get it

    So you think a good portion of your problems are maybe about a dead zone in coverage around where you live? Questions/issues aside about different phones and apps, you think you have good speeds/throughput when you are in a different area of the city?

    I'm not sure. I would have to run a speed test and see. I honestly don't use it much away from home other than for my music and that's all downloaded.
    Here's an example of the WiFi issue. I have full signal, but it tells me I'm possibly in airplane mode. This has happened quite a few times. I do understand it has nothing to do with period conversation regarding towers. But the issues just continueThis is a joke .. NOT!-screenshot_20220503-152956_lowes.jpg

    Try installing this OpenSignal app:
    https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=Cvruksfi
    It's primarily a speed test utility but it also includes a handy mapping feature where you can locate nearby cell towers and see coverage range for the major carriers. The accumulated data is crowd-sourced so the good part is you get actual usage info (not marketing babble from the carriers) but the bad part if you live in more remote area it's a lot less useful (not enough data to analyze and process).
    Perhaps Verizon just doesn't want to invest in supporting your vicinity. The big carriers are very territorial and opt to isolate their cellular networks from each other so hopefully a different carrier will have better coverage in your locale. Straight Talk has contracts with AT&T, T-Mobile, along with Verizon so switching is more or less just a matter of contacting them about your choice so they can send you a new SIM card.

    Who is your internet provider? Your screenshots show that you're connected to WiFi not data. This does not seem to be a problem with your data signal, Verizon or your phones but with your internet. Possibly it's your router/modem needs to be updated or is faulty. Especially given that you've repeatedly had the same problem with several phones.
