WOW so far its awesome! It switches bands while on a call with zero problem! (I was dreading it would get stuck on B26 but its going from any band to any band with zero issues) and somehow signal check pro is recognizing the phone call as well.

Did you guys have Wifi Calling enabled previously?

 

Try just rebooting the phone!

I still got the error a few times after rebooting, but it's working now.

It is a new radio baseband but yeah performance looks to be identical. At least we went straight to the August update though.

It installed and worked without rebooting, but I rebooted a few minutes after just in case.

 

Question...

Is there supposed to be a new icon for Calling Plus besides WiFi Calling or does it replace it? I still have the WiFi Calling icon, even though when clicked it takes me to the Calling Plus setting.

HA, I didn't bother to look in the drop down notifications area. I was referring to the apps folder.

So the new Voice + Data beta only works on LTE and will drop if it gets outside LTE range....that's um, a little chancy for the old Sprint network in my neck of the woods. I assume the LTE hand-offs work okay between the different bands of LTE??

 

Does anyone know if the WiFi-calling has been improved?  Does it hand off between WiFi APs without dropping? Does it transition from WiFi to LTE without dropping?  I can't see much of that discussed with any certainty in the Sprint Community articles. Thanks for any knowledge you guys may have.

LTE to 3G is a no-go..WiFi to LTE and LTE to WiFi work well..

I miss being able to choose which networks WiFi calling gets to work on. My phone connects to WiFi automatically at work ad while it's decent for browsing, it's really inconsistent for WiFi calling. But if the trade off is that I get to make calls over LTE, then so be it.

 

I'm certain Sprint chose this as their next device because it's their most popular new handset and they can collect a lot of data on call blocks and drops to optimize VoLTE down the line.

Don't try using this on a congested LTE tower. Bad stuff happen. Not ready for prime time but it's good to have also the transition to LTE is good to have as well

It's nice that you can choose to turn one or the other off. So if you don't want the WiFi calling, then toggle that one off. Smart play here by Sprint on the toggle choices.

I had a test call the jumped Access points and it held. Also RCS is in the Samsung Messaging app.

The call starts almost instantly. With HD voice it's much slower to start a call

The update is clearly only for Sprint. I use Boost and, had a update but, still can't talk and surf. :(

My observations so far for LTE calling w/o WiFi, instant connection, clear voice, seemless LTE band switching.  So far so good

My experience so far matches yours. It even holds LTE longer in fringe areas. I'm impressed so far.

Seems like everyone is liking the update, hope what I am seeing is true. Haven't really had time to look for any changes but I'll definitely keep a lookout for anything I might catch.

It needs to not allow a call on a congested tower... currently it does and voice doesn't get transmitted. It works awesome on non-congested towers though.

      I'm here looking for answers to a simple question. Where is this mystery Sprint signal coming from? For the past few weeks I've received a signal on multiple Sprint devices, two Sprint devices with roaming turned off, and two Virgin Mobile phones and Virgin Mobile phones can't roam, the other rate plans might be able but I'm talk about Virgin Mobile devices from before they introduced all those other plans. What I'm making clear is these devices have to be picking up a Sprint signal, plus I've downloaded the SignalCheck Pro app which has indicated two different signals 1XRTT and 1X800. 
       
      The signal only last for about 8 hours each morning and begins coming in and out towards the end of each morning. I try making a call and it fails, and it doesn't get any data at all. I try each device and they all do the same thing they have a signal and very strong signal with no data, and voice doesn't go threw, I haven't tried sending a text figured no data, no voice then there must be no text.
       
      I read about some "projects"  that Sprint has going on Project Ocean and Project Cedar. Since Project Ocean is suppose to be taking place in Missouri and I live so close to the Iowa, Missouri line, I figured if there is a tower going up maybe it is possible I'm getting a signal from it, in the early stages. I really don't know what is going on, if Sprint is launching service, putting up new towers and that signal finally comes, and stays, and works. I'll be back full time on the Sprint ban wagon. Unfortunately, I live in an area not served by (according to experience and coverage map) Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Not even the two Iowa carriers i Wireless or Chat Mobility serve my area, go 10, 15 or 20 miles in any direction your good, here, wireless dead zone, no choice of carriers. And if Sprint puts a tower here if I finally get an answer and learn that signal will soon come and stay and work I'll finally have a choice.
       
      So if anyone has any ideas, has experienced this in other parts of the country or has any idea what could be going on please say. Any information is better than not knowing, and together maybe this will be answered.

      Try to make this as short and simple as possible. I have three devices; 2 of which are on the same plan and the third on a separate plan.
       
      The third device is my tab 4 which is picking up SprintB41 site 310120 just great. I get 3 bars downstairs.
       
      My other two devices; Galaxy Note 4 & Galaxy Note Edge for some reason will not pick up this tower. I have tried PRL updates, Profile updates, restarted the phones and all I can get them to connect to is a ClearwireB41 site.
       
      More background info...all devices have same Sim card as when purchased, tablet stays off 3/4 of the day and my phones are on when I wake up and turn them off at night. No matter where I go inside or out my phones won't connect to the Sprint site.
       
      Anybody have any ideas before I call Sprint trying to figure something out? I'm not sure how long the tablet has been able to connect to this site so I'm not sure what to think of it besides agitated that the tablet of all things is connecting. I posted two photos; one of the tablet connected to the Sprint site; second of the Clear wire site my phones connect to.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      The next front in the prepaid wars: Ting is adding support for GSM/WCDMA/3GPP devices (apparently as a MVNO of T-Mobile, directly or indirectly, if the coverage map is to be believed) and will allow you to have GSM and CDMA devices on the same account, apparently going a step further than the Straight Talk empire. LTE data is apparently included, but not depicted on the maps.
       
      http://www.androidcentral.com/sprint-mvno-ting-support-gsm-starting-february-2015
       
      Now a real Ting coup would be to allow access to both the Sprint and T-Mobile networks on a single line without a SIM swap if you have a device that works on both (like Nexus 5/6 etc.). Technically devices without a firmware lockout of domestic competitor networks, like the Nexus 5 and 6 and the new devices coming in a few months, should be able to do it.

      Will 1900 be reframed for LTE only? Or is 1x Advanced not worth it at such a high frequency?
