Network Updates

Calling Service Network Wide – Update 2:00 pm

April 17, 2024

– Update – There are still some intermittent issues going on but most calls are going through. We are continuing to work on getting the issue stabilized.

We are currently experiencing an issue with network equipment impacting our customers’ outbound calls. Customers in areas utilizing our legacy CDMA network can still receive incoming calls, and calls from Inland to Inland customers are unaffected. This issue does not affect text messaging services. Customers utilizing VoLTE services will have issues with incoming and outgoing calling. Our network team is working to resolve the issues as quickly as possible.

 

VoLTE Services in the Inland Cellular Regional Area

November 16, 2023
We are transitioning customers to Voice-Over LTE  services in our regional area in segments based on geographic location. You will receive a text message from us with a date to tell you when this change will happen on your specific device.
After you receive this text, your device will use Voice-Over LTE (VoLTE) services inside the Inland Cellular Regional area. Earlier this year, national carriers decommissioned their legacy networks and transitioned to VoLTE, so customers traveling outside of the Inland Cellular regional area have already been utilizing VoLTE. The upcoming network changes will transition customers to VoLTE services within our regional area.
You may notice slight differences in coverage after this change. Customers can utilize simultaneous voice and data when voice calls are placed over LTE connections. Simply put, you can use data services while also on a phone call. When both parties are utilize a VoLTE calling connection, you will notice a fast call connection, improved call quality, and reduced background noise.
