I live in zip code 19087, which is part of the western suburbs of Philadelphia. According to the Republic coverage map the 4G LTE reception is ‘strong’ in my area. Yet I find that I often get a message to the effect that ‘Cell data is restricted’ - no internet, just SMS, etc.’ - I forget the actual wording of the message but it is something to that effect. Today I decided to take a local hike (just a few miles away) and for about half of the hike (which was on level ground, not in a valley) I got this message. Irritating.
If it matters, I have a moto e4plus (most recent generation) and a 3GB plan (and I am not close to tapping it out this month).
Wondering what can account for this. Simply being out of range of a tower or something else? Thanks
