I get IPv6 on both 3G and 4GLTE from VZW.

Similar with AT&T Wireless.

If you want to have some fun, open up a ticket with your carrier if you can’t reach http://thegoodlife.delong.com

It has an AAAA record, but no A record.

In my experience, most carriers will not even figure out the nature of the problem.

To the best of my knowledge it has not. However, I think a big part of that is that sprint thought they could spell 4GLTE using the letters W-I-M-A-X.
