    Samsung is so slow. My Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact got the April 5th 2018 Security Patch yesterday. My Unlocked 965U1 is still on February.

    AFAIK, T-Mobile is the most up to date at the moment & it's the March patch. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    Here's a hotspot guide from XDA that might work for you: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3763796 Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    The Hotspot hack still works on my Unlocked GS9+. I'm using it right now & typing from my Note 4 910C that's connected to the GS9+ hotspot. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk

    You mean you can't even edit the APN? Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    I briefly tested it the other day using my laptop and it worked. Is the workaround not working for you? I'll try it again later. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    Yes. Thru Shortcut Master. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    How's everyone enjoying or not enjoying their GS9s? I'm enjoying my Unlocked Galaxy S9+ (965U1) so far. It's bloatware-free, I have Calling Plus, WiFi Calling, and even Sprint's Visual Voicemail now. Battery life is the same as the Unlocked Galaxy S8+ (955U1) but performance is slightly better. Substratum works really well & I can customize it the same as the GS8+. Only thing I'm missing is the official Samsung silicone case in white color. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    The only slight negatives I've read about or seen in videos so far is that one, battery life is just the same as the GS8 & GS8+ and two, the cameras are still not as good as the Pixel 2's. I'm upgrading from a GS8+ & I feel the update is incremental and there is nothing "wow" about the phone. I like the FPS a lot better though. Easier to hit & way, way faster. I wasn't gonna upgrade originally but did so b/c there was a $300 trade-in for my old GS7E that my mom was using & she wanted a better phone. Plus, I had lots of credit card & Best Buy points that brought down the cost of the phone to about $100. My mom is REALLY happy with the GS8+ & she considers it a huge upgrade coming from the GS7E.

    Does this show that I'm really connected to Sprint 1x800 MHz for voice? Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    Glad to have helped. A person on XDA gave me the tip about also having to activate WiFi Calling to make Calling Plus work again. Last year, I didn't have to activate WiFi Calling. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk

    Here is the guide to activate Calling Plus on the Unlocked Galaxy S8+ & Unlocked Galaxy S9+: (1) Using the app "Shortcut Master" or Novalauncher Activities shortcut function, find the following three settings: (2) Inside "LTEFunctionalityTest," go into "VoLTE Test UI" and turn On the first 2 settings. Click on the "Set" button for the fourth-row item. (3) Inside the "EnhancedLteServices," click on it so that a check mark is shown. (4) Then go into "WfcSettings" and turn on Wifi calling: (5) Reboot your phone. (6) Turn off your Wifi and try making a call. You should see the "LTE" Status Bar symbol remain on as you initiate a phone call. Go browse the Internet while talking~!!

    I just installed the new Visual Voicemail app this morning but I've been managing my voicemail using Google Voice. I have it set up so that when my phone is Busy or No Answer, the caller gets forwarded to my Google Voice voicemail. I've been using it that way since July of 2017 when I got the Unlocked Galaxy S8+. This workaround still works with my new Unlocked Galaxy S9+.
