Well I was connected at home on a call and as soon as I went around the corner call dropped no Wi-Fi no switching to lte calling. Not impressed.

What phone do you have, and did you enable calling plus on both wifi and LTE?

That's unfortunate. I noticed that WiFi Calling is much more reliable than before. I was outside and my phone was connected to a pretty weak wifi signal and my call stayed connected and clear.

So finally got it to work but call quality was just ok. I could hear the other person great but they said I kept breaking up. Now it won't config now. Oh well

I actually was able to hear a calling plus call. My friend and I was out and he called our other friend who has an S8 and the call sounded good. Then the person with the S8 started to break up really bad. Is it possible that Sprint can route those calls as top priority on the network when one is made?

That SHOULD have already been thought of and set up. If it was not, then somebody looks bad.

From what was posted before, Sprint does not prioritize voice traffic, at least not yet.

Yes, the somebody who looks bad is you -- for seemingly not knowing that voice QoS would mean implementing VoLTE.

 

Calling Plus is NOT VoLTE.

That's what I heard as well but it was around both the LG and Samsung phones were the only ones that was able to so calling plus. Hopefully when they activate the iPhones to do this that they prioritize the voice traffic. Either way it's a great start regardless. The kinks are more in likely still being worked out.

I am not sure if they are or are not prioritizing voice traffic, but voice will work poorly unless the data channel is not congested and running totally smooth. Any burp in the data destroys VOIP.  Running VOIP over a congested 5x5 band 26 channel with no voice prioritization will be  a disaster. This is true if it is VOIP or something just similar to VOIP.   When a data stream stutters, voice stutters unless it is buffered somewhere and gets some correction. 

 

My Directv Now Video streaming will buffer.  Suddenly it backs up about 3 seconds and repeats the programming that was messed up.   With voice, backing up and repeating the last 3 seconds of a voice call might not be so good.  It has to be almost flawless the first time.

People, this should not be a question.  Read the first post of this thread.  Calling Plus does not receive network prioritization. That has been stated from the beginning of this opt in soft launch.

There is no doubt that much work remains for VoLTE. For those who are desperate for data access with voice beyond Wi-Fi, Sprint has done a favor by releasing Calling Plus. This gives Sprint data to improve the network for VoLTE.

I just did a quick call on my new S8+ with my wife and I was impressed. It didn't seem like there was any additional delay over 1x, and the call was clear. She was on an S7 connected to the cellular network (not wifi calling). I do have good LTE coverage at my house, so I'll have to try it when in some weaker areas to see how it works.

 

Note: I'm posting this from my S7 edge because I don't have Tapatalk set up yet on my S8+.

Has Sprint announced they are updating certain older phones to support this or just speculation?  Seems common that anytime an update comes through in the devices forum someone says "no calling plus yet.  Maybe next one" like the S7 for example.

At a heavily congested intersection the other day I could not make a call on CDMA but went through with no problem on calling plus. Pretty cool

That's interesting so it doesn't really care what radio band it is on. I really hope to see improvements from Sprint with this new capability of theirs.

In a few days we'll know if Sprint plans on using Calling Plus for LTE calling on the new Apple Watch Series 3. If not, it might be the first VoLTE device rolled out en masse on the network, since it lacks CDMA entirely.

It does VOIP.

    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
    • 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.
    • And in terms of this, TMobile already does on many fronts.  They constantly prove to be #1 in so many data tests. Verizon and TMobile are essentially #1/2 in terms of data speeds and they are the most constrained carriers in terms of spectrum.  In terms of Coverage, TMobile continues to show us how they will be on par with VZW/AT&T soon and do continue to deliver with expanded coverage. TMobile is well on its way without Sprint to be equal to VZW/AT&T.  So that is three strong nationwide carriers with Sprint still being a forth option if absolute total native coverage is less a concern.  They are well on their way to provide fast speeds within existing coverage areas.  Honestly, with a little stronger rural coverage and less dead zones TMobile will be the nations #2 carrier ahead of AT&T.
    • I don't recall anyone saying they expect pricing to further reduce in either scenario...Sprint going alone nor a merger with Tmo.
