Wireless Home Phone equipment upgrade without Internet

I have AT&T wireless home phone and want to upgrade to the features available on the Verizon Novatel T2000 (4G LTE, GPS for E911, Fax capability, etc).

 

Verizon has had this equipment since mid-2017, when will AT&T upgrade and offer a device compatible with Verizon?

ATT does offer wireless home phone with internet.  Did you ask for it?

NO, I don't want the Internet I just want the wireless home phone.   I have had the wireless home phone from AT&T for going on four years and currently it only has 3G connectivity.

 

ATT& was offering the phone only device but they are currently only offering the phone/Internet device. 

 

Please look at Verizon's website or click on the link below for the Novatel T2000 service - it is vastly superior to the AT&T product in that it has 4G HD Quality calls, GPS for E911 service and it is compatible with a FAX or Alarm system which AT&T devices currently do not support.

Ah, pardon, I misunderstood.  

ATT 3G connection is 4G.  Or more like 3.75 G.

 Verizon’s 3G network is indeed 3G CDMA speed.  

The only place up from ATT 3G  is LTE which is not as reliable.  

Voice over 3g is still most reliable and long range than LTE.  

 Most alarm systems were 2G.  They are moving to 3G.

This was new in 2017 - LTE only coverage.

 

HD Voice is not available on 3G with AT&T, the AT&T device does not have GPS for E911 location, you cannot connect an alarm system and you certainly cannot connect a fax machine to the current AT&T equipment.  Where I live LTE service is wide spread and very prevalent.  

 

This is a game changer for wireless home phone service.

I want to know if AT&T will have a new device that will support 4G LTE that is FAX capability and with Voice and No Internet needed.  If AT&T will make NOT make it that I will join Verizon then because I need that feature.  I have the AT&T home phone the first version of it and the model is WF720.  I have a all in one machine that has FAX.  Right now the FAX is useless because the WF720 can't FAX or the new version WF721 or the Internet Wireless home phone can't FAX either.  I chatted with AT&T rep and I said I want to suggest to AT&T to have that in the next device and the person who chatted don't care and he said you can leave AT&T.

I hope you get a satisfactory answer as I have been asking this same question for a long while.  In addition to the superior Verizon product that enables FAX and other capabilities, AT&T cannot consistently answer the question of those of us that purchased the wireless home phone only service and do not need Internet.  Some say you can do it and others say that you have to subscribe to a data plan, which I don't need.  It certainly appears that AT&T may be abandoning this product.  I don't want to leave AT&T but they are making me look at other options.

Hi STL314,

 

Thank you for your reply.  Oh well....I guess AT&T don't care about their customer anway but then again what LARGE Corporte companies do care about there customer anway.  They only care about MERGERS and how to jack people prices up anyway.  Oh well I guess I will switch to Verizon Wirless.  You should do the samething too if AT&T will not budge.  Guess we have to tell all the people who subscribe to AT&T phone home who does not need Internet service and just want Fax like you and I switch to Verizon immediately.  If a company does not want your money go some where else. 

 

Mike
