I updated to iOS 8.1 earlier today and also ever before given that then I have been on "extended" coverage instead of verizon. I checked out areas that I go to eextremely day and also I never before had actually verizon and also it has been around 9 hours. I did a factory recollection but that didn"t work-related. How execute I resolve this? I don"t desire to be roaming all the time which is what it appears that it is.

I"m in the same place. Don"t get me wrong I"m excited about having actually the video camera roll back and whatever, however is tbelow a factor for me to be on extended?

After doing some research study virtual it"s looking favor extfinished doesn"t really matter, it"s ust that Verizon have the right to say "not our fault" if stuff acts weird... however I"ve had actually Verizon coverage for the last 4 years without it ever before saying extfinished.


I tried reestablishing my network settings, restarting the phone multiple times, throwing the sim card in my backup Moto X and then back in the iPhone but nothing has addressed the Extended organization. Found 2 more threads on the very same concern, through a combined 49 "I have this trouble too." I really hope that lutz-heilmann.info and/or Verizon takes a major look at this.

Vzw iPhone 6 (8.1) Stuck on "Extended"

8.1 upday and also cell company issues


Here"s the fix:

I had actually the very same concerns when I upgraded my iphone 6 to ios 8.1, I had the ability to chat via someone from lutz-heilmann.info and also they told me to carry out this: Go to settings-->Cellular-->Enable LTE--> pick Voice and also Data

After doing that it switched from "Extended" back to "Verizon", here"s his explanation:

"Okay, so in the procedure of Verizon activating their new LTE network-related, they’re retiring some towers, upgrading some towers, and transitioning others. It’s feasible that they may have newly made transforms in your location, or we’ve just tweaked the settings so that Verizon’s network-related looks primarily for LTE versus the CDMA netjob-related you had been on."

Hope that helps, it operated for me

Thank you Maurice! This worked for me too. However, establishing this back to File Only did revert from Verizon ago to Extended FYI. Not certain if this will certainly be a trouble or not in the future. If so, I guess I"ll harass Verizon. Thanks again!

Sorry it didn"t occupational for you, hopetotally tbelow will be a long-term settle quickly. Did a quick search and also discovered that according to Verizon, just the 6 and also 6+ are VoLTE compatible which might be why this didn"t fix things for you. Has anyone talked to Verizon by chance? I can not stand also managing them, probably somebody has even more patience than me.

I have actually the same difficulty, just including another voice. iPhone 5s 16GB. Verizon. OTA update to iOS 8.1 > I"m showing "Extended" (rather of "Verizon") as carrier/netoccupational ever before since. My residence and also office are within a 3 mile radius, in the middle of tvery own, in which I constantly have actually "Verizon LTE" alongside my signal indicator. I have not left this exact same radius throughout or because the upday. I have a colleague whose Verizon Wireless iPhone 5s, updated to iOS 8.1, effectively mirrors "Verizon".

Steps I"ve taken to troubleshoot (all unsuccessful): Turn WiFi off. Turn Bluetooth off. Turn LTE off. Turn Cellular off. All combinations of roaming settings enabled/disabled. Turn Airplane mode on. Soft recollection (power cycle). Hard recollection (Lock button+Home switch power cycle). Pulled SIM card. "Recollection Netoccupational Settings". Aget, namong these points readdressed the issue.

Chat session through Verizon Wiremuch less Technical Support was futile and also a nonsensical rablittle bit hole. I was automatically advised to backup > gain back, "however I wouldn"t reinstall iOS 8 till a brand-new upday comes out". I pointed out that those 2 statements were contradictory however that did not seem to phase the rep. Additionally, I was told I would certainly shed my text messeras -- once I quoted the iTunes prompt that states "This will certainly regain just the contacts, calendars, notes, text messperiods, and also settings, not the iPhone firmware", the rep confidently replied, "Right. You are protected by the network." Wut.
