@fricstix : PM does voice on 3G and text and data on either 3G or LTE. When the phone is set to LTE and idling there, when a call comes in, the phone switches itself to 3G. You might even see bars jump up depending on your LTE reception. Or down 🙂
Edit: No. There are no extra charges around here.
Is the origin point of the places you're calling or getting calls from generally the same area?
Just trying to troubleshoot whether it may be a reception issue at the sending or the receiving end.
Perhaps try having that other person call someone else in your household to see if similar experience.
is the reception always like this or just started lately?
curious what Bell or Telus towers you see around your home?
