I’m not seeing no calling plus after the update.

Luckily for me I didn’t have crashing issues updating my X this morning.

You lucked out! It was unbelievable. Our devices were sitting there charging and they literally started crashing over and over with the charge plug sound.

Seems like apps with local notifications were the cause.

Apple Support (and perhaps Sprint Support) is going to be swamped about this.

I guess the upside is that everyone affected will need to update to iOS 11.2 and they’ll have the latest carrier/baseband.

I was REALLY hoping and thinking that Calling Plus would be enabled with 11.2.  Damn.  👎

Yeah: I think that VCC is as far as we’ll get on iOS until the switch is flipped for VoLTE. With VoLTE launching next year most likely, it probably doesn’t make sense to build it for iOS.

Also, it’s possible that Apple doesn’t want Calling Plus and is telling Sprint to come back when VoLTE is available.

Seems an exception for “Calling Plus” was made for the Apple Watch LTE, which appears to do VoIP for Voice... but for the iPhone, it’s a no-go.

I added the TEP Plus to my plan. Does anyone know if this is the one with Apple Care tied to it? It was the only insurance that I saw.

Is Wi-Fi Calling not working properly for anyone else here since updating to iOS 11.2?

Mine has not been working properly for a while. Dating back to iOS 10 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Ditto

What do we gain by having 31.0?

Not sure about 31.0.  I hope it helps with band prioritization.  I am having issues with the X locking onto B25 first when it is slow.

11.2, I do see Apple Pay Cash in Wallet for sending/receiving payments through Messages.

Sprint says they’ve been able to reproduce the WiFi Calling Issue on iOS 11.2:

It's quite sporadic for me. Part of the day it works, and even that is hit and miss. And I'm on the 7 Plus.

I’m having problems too. It doesn’t even seem to work great with text messaging.

It's certainly a weird and wacky issue, that's for sure.

Definitely wacky. It’s annoying.

Apparently a backend fix was implemented last night to resolve this issue. Should be working properly now.

Weird. I turned it back on and it's not working at all for me at the moment.

Update: I did a service update, and it's back up and running.

This WiFi Calling Issue is a real thing. It’s affecting me and another line as well... and perhaps others on our plan.

https://community.sprint.com/t5/iPhone/Wifi-Calling-IOS-11-2/m-p/986133/highlight/true#M795

I’ll bet we get an updated Carrier Bundle very soon to rollback some changes they made.

Hopefully soon. Although since 11.2, my phone has a harder time staying connected to my WiFi Connect router in right outside my bedroom than it used to. It appears whatever is affecting WiFi Calling has affected my WiFi in general.

Sprint just dropped Carrier Update 31.1 for iOS.

Hopefully it fixes the WiFi Calling Issue.

    • I started working on the Raspberry Pi 3b Plus tonight with an Sierra Wireless em7565. This one has all those cool features that I was describing up top. Not bad for ~39 bucks. I was waiting for a few open source firmwares to get through the compilebot6k's toobs; this one is built now. Some use modem manager or openWRT for the router side. This LTE radio is band(s) 2/26/41 capable on the Sprint side. Band 25 did not make the cut, but was on previous Sierra builds. This is a tester radio so there is a slight chance it will appear down the road. It has just about every other LTE band.  

      This is an example of the debug screen. GMO is nearest so we only get 26 from a far site. No 41 in our zip yet. 
      The best part is I can plug an MC7455(that would be Modem#2) or another EM7565 in and it can hop over to that or I can direct load balancing. I just wanted to show the EM7565 authenticated below. Another shot of my terrible reception. Here it is out of the armor.

      So, we have a stable software image. I will get it built and add some GPS features, then test on band 41 in Myrtle where present. We have one site w 8t8r gear to test 3xCA on, so it might be a minute. I am in 2xCA MM areas through the week. I will see how it likes the Magic box too. 

      I should have a true GB ethernet router to massacre in the next couple of weeks with software images already set to go. I can embed the radio beyond a USB adapter. It still requires m.2>mPCIe but that is one less failure point and better throughput. This was a great breakthrough in affordable and small solutions for us.  I have to go to bed and then work now.

      Have a great week everyone.
    • Thank you so much for bringing light to this! I would have never known about it had you not posted it! You've saved me a lot of money and lowered my bill moving forward! It wasn't an easy process, but well worth it. Unlocking the phones was surprisingly easy. But the small hiccup came with my final bill. When I received it, I thought I was screwed when I saw that the ETF was included. I almost paid for it too, but the frugal in me decided to call Sprint (couldn't hurt, right?). After an hour on the phone with a US supervisor, my account was credited for the full amount of the ETFs. I walked away Scot-free!! Thanks a bunch OP! I'm trying Verizon's throttled unlimited data plan. Excellent reliability in the city, but there are certain key spots where I need my phone that aren't great. I don't know if it's the throttling or the network.
    • I see more mass upgrades by TMO on 600mhz -- it seems they did an amazing and fast roll out. If I recall folks here thougt TMO wouldn't be able to see much strides for a year plus.

      Reason I bring it up is TMO can't have much more free cash than Sprint. Yet can operate fast and lean.

      Positive note Sprint has rocked it's upgrades this past year...
