My wife and I both recently switched our Catch Connect and Boost mobile phone plans over to Voda prepaid. We both use iPhone 12s. So far so good.
Last week we spent some time on the Hume Highway and visited some relatives in the centre of Yass NSW. We both had a strong 3G signal, and phone calls/SMS continued to work, but neither of us had any cellular/internet connectivity. Our 3 kids with slightly older iPhones were connecting to Catch on 3G and had no data problems whatsoever.
I called Voda and the tech told me "iPhone 12 is too new for the 3G network, it only works on 4G and 5G". He had me toggle the Mobile Data settings from '5G Auto' back to '4G only' (there is no longer a 3G option) all to no avail. A senior tech called me back, told me to try resetting the network settings etc.. which I have not yet done and after all, the issue is evident on another device - my wife's.
Before I request a refund and go back to Boost, can anyone on Voda prepaid confirm that 3G cellular data still works on iPhone 12?
