    Anyone ever heard of having a static IP for your Cellphone?

    You may somehow be able to get a contract with a cell provider to do such a thing, but I would imagine only large corporations with corporate accounts or various government services would normally be able to do so.

    Most cell carriers implement Carrier Grade NAT (CG-NAT) for wireless devices, which is the 100.64.0.0/10 network. I've not heard of anyone having a static IP address on your cellphone, but business might be able to leverage a static IP address in locations where they use LTE connectivity to their routers via Cradlepoint or something else like that via a built in LTE modem, or external via USB.

    You're probably better off getting a VPN client of sorts on the phone that gets you to a static IP on another provider.

    What is it you are trying to do to require a static IP on a phone?

    You can get a static ip assigned to a device if you have a business account. We do it for remote console management devices from opengear

    I've never heard of anyone being able to get support to do this on a personal account
