It's easy to turn on and off depending on the area you're in. It's a simple toggle on the pull down.

Yes I know and I did turn it off.

I installed the Call Plus on my Gal S8+  early last week and found within a few days that my battery just didn't last even a half day!  I've  been used to it lasting the full day with moderate use and almost two days with low use.

So, given that I had battery issues back with my Note 4 when I kept the WiFi on all the time, I turned off the WiFi portion of Call Plus and suddenly I've got more out of my battery.  Makes sense.  But still being frustrated by not having a full day of usage yesterday I've turned off that feature entirely.

I like the idea, but am unwilling to take the hit too my usage.  The calls were clear, but certainly not worth the hassle.

How long did you talk on the phone when you had CP turned on?

I have not seen any issues with battery life since turning on calling plus. I'm not saying it's not possible that you could be having problems, but also consider that it could be something else as well.

burnout8488-  

Probably about 30 minutes a day.  I mostly text and web browse with it.

Galaxyguy-        

I didn't add any other apps at that same time...  Of course, Samsung has installed a number of apps around then and in the last week that I have no use for-  I'll watch to see if indeed my battery rebounds or continues to suck.

Galaxyguy-

Ok, it's now 12 hours since I fully charged my phone.  It shows 74% full-- I have been texting on sms and Messenger all day, but with lighter than usual web access.  But still, that is pretty darn good compared to my Note 4 and more than twice as good as when I was on Call Plus.

I know, I know.  Too small a sample size- that will come with time.  But decent anecdotal information for the time being.

Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.

Sometime in the last couple of days Calling Plus was added to the G6. Noticed the icon today, had an update on Friday I think, that must've been when they made the change.

I have a G6, I was just wondering if he had posted this somewhere, I didn't know it was even coming to the G6 till I saw the icon show up.

It's really not that hard to use the mobile site... I don't get the reliance on Tapatalk. Yeah it's nice to have... but the forum existed without it before. Hopefully the next update can fix the compatibility issue.

Tapatalk is working again....I don't use computers very often and just use mobile or tapatalk. Check about once a week with mobile browser but everyday with tapatalk and Tapatalk notifications.

Calling plus worked great with my limited tests before I sold my g6. Highly recommend to test it out.....

Tested CP(beta) on an S8. IMHO works better than expected. Only really tested the receiving end (was listening to the movie hotline while driving out in the country, where LTE is marginal), so not sure if the opposite party would have heard me as well as I heard them.

What is a bit iffy is the WiFi Calling handover where I tested it. Seems that the building you are in and connected to WiFi must have pretty good overlap of LTE and WiFi.   So, if inside your building, LTE is weak or nonexistant, it won't usually handover in either direction.  But, I was able to coax some handovers by finding areas with good overlap.  Will run a test at home, where I have a -38db LTE signal from tower in my backyard.

Vs. Verizon Advanced Calling 2.0 I would say that VZW will drop an VoLTE call very quickly, but Sprint will tolerate more LTE signal gap before dropping.  At one point, I heard a CP call hang on through about 5 seconds of silence in a weak signal area, then it came back just fine.  VZW will drop in that situation.

This is an interesting experience given that Verizon's VoLTE is prioritized on QoS and the handsets will hold LTE for the phone call than it would for a normal data session... curious as to why this happens to you, and how Sprint has better signal than Verizon there.

    • I’m sure this occurring a couple days prior means either —

      - SoftBank is leaving
      Or
      - means absolutely zilch


      I bet it’s somewhere in between. Lol.

    • The other thing I found in his video presentation was the clear lack of anything "Sprint".   John jabbed at AT&T and Verizon but nothing on or against Sprint.  Also, I don't know if you guys noticed, but the word "Duopoly" is the power word of late and is being used with more frequency! (no pun intended)....   I think it's about conditioning  the FCC and DOJ by hearing it.
    • The DOJ reviews potential antitrust issues in mergers. The FCC is supposed to look at whether the merger is in the public interest, which includes reduced competition. So the FCC could reject the merger on the grounds that the reduced competition is not in the public interest. I do not, however, see Chairman Pai doing that because he is so pro-business. From the FCC's FAQ about merger reviews:
      Q: What is the FCC’s public interest standard/test?
      A: Under section 310(d) of the Communications Act, we determine whether a proposed transaction will serve the public interest, convenience and necessity. First, we determine if the application complies with provisions of the Act and our Commission rules. If it does, then we consider whether granting the application could result in public interest harms by substantially frustrating or impairing the objectives or implementation of the Communications Act or related statutes. Competition, diversity, localism, and encouraging the provision of advanced services to all Americans are among the principle objectives of the Act. We also consider what potential public benefits might occur because of the transaction. We balance the potential public interest harms against the potential benefits. The Applicants bear the burden of proving, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the proposed transaction, on balance, will serve the public interest.
    • Before we jump to this conclusion we need to see sustained financial growth over a period of time and a much larger increase in net additions to the network. Sprint is still offering the best deals in wireless and their growth is lagging the competition. This is not sustainable over the long term. Honestly, I see a merger as inevitable as the larger providers will have much more flexible cash for network enhancements in the near future, which they can then leverage to gain more customers.
