For the last month or so, but especially the last week...my s8 active will show full bars of 5e, and I can't even send texts or use the internet. Phone calls are a crapshoot...sometimes I can hear & be heard, other times it's awful. I do the majority of my work from my phone. I can't send invoices, or any type of email about 50% of the time. And it's not local to one area, as I travel constantly. I really don't want to have to go to Verizon, but I need my phone to work so I can work!
