Voice on 4G with feature GoPhone
If I get a 4G-capable feature phone, as a GoPhone without a data plan, can I use the 4G for voice when I'm in an area where the 2G/3G signal is non-existent or too weak to use? (I know the GpPhone needs to be AT&T or a compatible unlocked GSM phone - I've been using unlocked GoPhones for years).
I live in a canyon in Northern California with virtually no cell phone reception. My 2G/3G GoPhone gets no reception and my Republic Wireless smartphone gets no signal on Sprint (the primary carrier) and a good Verizon roaming signal, except when the power goes out, when the Verizon also goes out (I assume the tower loses power). I need a phone I can count on in bad weather when the Verizon tower stops working.
A friend's laptop gets a very strong AT&T LTE signal here during storms and when none of the others get a signal , This is making me wonder whether it's possible to replace my GoPhone with a 4G feature phone and use it to make calls without a data plan.
I'm not concerned about HD Voice or Volte. I just want to be able to make phone calls when my other phones can't get a signal.
