    I often seem to drop service on my AT&T Nexus 6, as seen in this screen grab when I go to this setting it is never clicked on any of them, even after I click LTE and go out and come back in it is not clicked. Notice in screen grab I have no service .

    This happens in my condo in the Bronx and at work which is 25 mikes north of the Bronx.

    Thoughts ??

    Your phone will always drop out of LTE mode whenever you have another working data connection - such as the full-strength WiFi apparent in your screenshot.

    I bet if you call yourself from another phone or try to initiate a call from your phone you will see cellular bars magically appear.

    Completely wrong. When I'm on wifi, I have both wifi and cellular bars showing at all times.

    Cellular yes, LTE no.

    The reason the OP drops to no bars at all is that his carrier's non-LTE tower is too far away or its signal strength is so-so. When he is at home and not in LTE mode his signal sucks.

    In my case, I have several AT&T towers surrounding my home. Sometimes I connect to one with a very strong, 4 or 5 bar signal, sometimes I connect to one with a weak 0 or 1 bar signal. And sometimes, if I disable Wi-Fi, I connect to an entirely different tower in LTE mode. I wrote about this a while back, here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/goo...algorithm.html

    [edit to add]

    Keep in mind, LTE is specifically a data connection and has nothing whatsoever to do with voice except in some brand new systems which are using VoLTE (Voice over LTE). That's why your phone drops its LTE connection whenever it has an alternate (read Wi-Fi) data connection.
