I haven't gotten the update. I'm on beta too. Having an unlocked model taking forever to get the update. 
Yup, no update on my 955U1. I was hoping for the official update to drop before giving the phone to my mom.

There is a way to apparently add calling plus to the unlocked S8.

 

1. In Nova launcher add widget -> Activities 
2. Add LTE Test -> click VoLTE Test UI-> turn on first 2 setting.
3. Add Enhanced LTE Services and select this option.
4. Restart and enjoy.

 

LTE Test is under com.test.LTEfunctionality and Enhanced LTE Services is under Mobile on my device.

Is this workaround still working for you?

 

I noticed just yesterday that Calling Plus stopped working on my Unlocked GS8+ with a Sprint SIM (same SIM card).

 

Only things that changed on the GS8+ is that, one, I performed a factory reset and two, I transferred out my phone number into a different phone (Galaxy S9+) and transferred in another Sprint number (my mom's).

 

I set the settings multiple times, rebooted, but no go.

 

I tried the workaround on my Unlocked Galaxy S9+ with a Sprint SIM card & it's the same thing.

 

I did notice that Sprint was or is doing some tower configuration around my area (1x800mhz popped up briefly in Signal Check Pro).

Mine wasn't last night, but it showed up today oddly enough. Maybe coincidence in tower issues? I didn't change anything on my phone.

I'm getting a lot of double notification sounds. Like an email comes in and I'll get 2 dings, or a tweet notification and I'll get 2 chirps for that. But FB messages are just doing one notification noise. So perhaps app incompatibility with 8.0 versus phone issue?

Otherwise, I think this update is "fine". I don't see much that is improved here, but nothing super broken like the betas.

I'm seeing the same on my S9+, most likely a bug with the new os.

Looks like a new update this morning. Weighs in at 203 MB. Ends in RC5.

 

Hopefully this will fix the double sound notifications.

 

*Edit: This does update the security patch to March 1st.

Downloading now! Thanks.

I had to factory reset and rebuild from scratch last night. My phone was shutting off every minute or so. Soft reboot wasn't working, had to plug it in to reboot it. Ridiculous but seems to be better after rebuild.

Baseband changed too. Don't see much of a difference though.

So you're going to get the S9 and get rid of the S8?

Well it's a really good phone I would recommend it. But the s8 still pretty good.

We're on the Galaxy Forever, so might as well.

S9 is definitely a nice upgrade, the S8 feels slow in comparison.
