I can't watch TV w/o being bombarded with ads for Verizon's 4G network. But, I've never gotten a 4G signal on my Verizon smart phone from any where in Bexar County.

Can anyone out there shed any light on this?

Thx

Question: What kind of phone do you have? Not all smartphones are 4G capable.

One of my phones is a VZW Galaxy Nexus (4G) and it gets perfect reception all over the city, as well as all around the Bexar county area.

I just got a 4G phone (Lumia 822) and where i live (Potranco/1604) I did not see it come up but where I work (I-10 and Dezavala) it shows up in that area. So i guess it does depend o n the phone and how strong of an antenna it has internally

You're phone is 4GLTE capable. Look at the review:

Nokia Lumia 822 Review - Watch CNET's Video Review

Potranco should be within the 4G standard, but you might want to call Verizon and verify. It's not the internal antenna that's the issue- It's the network itself. San Antonio was one of the first fully 4G LTE cities with Verizon, so I expect that by now they'd have all of the city covered.

Call them. Get it sorted out. You're paying for 4G, you should be getting 4G.
