Why Does My Phone Show "LTE" When I Have No Data Plan?

Environment

Answer

Your phone will show an LTE signal as the phone is connected to a cellular data network.  However, you won't be able to load applications that would use data, such as browsing the Internet.  The actual "access" to cellular data is controlled by the Republic Wireless application. 

Additional Notes

Be sure that cellular data is enabled on the phone. Disabling cellular data could cause concerns with texting and other Republic Wireless services.
