Wifi calling?

It really doesnt make sense not to have this.

 

Theres no need for an airave with wifi calling, and that progrma must cost sprint a bundle. Having wifi calling just makes sense for the customer and the carrier.

 

Would be especially great for international travel.

I was messing around in my Sprint account and came across this. Anyone know what phones are supported? I've never even heard of this outside of T-Mobile.

2 that aren't supported: GS3 and iPhone 5c --  I just checked.  So . . . what IS supported?

I got the message "Oops! The voice wifi access setting cannot be changed because the subscription you're changing is not voice wifi capable" when trying to activate it on my Note 3 on the 3rd-party employee plan.

That's the same thing I got.

Only thing I found regarding WiFi calling with Sprint Kyocera devices. Kinda interesting that you can add any SIP service to it. Will keep that in mind when my biz service renews next month.

I considered switching to T-Mobile for half a day when I read up on HD voice and wifi calling. Since Sprint is now becoming very good with data speeds and has great voice quality, the one thing I saw as a nice ability was wifi calling since I have family in the boonies and they don't all have Sprint service but have cable broadband. This could be a huge game changer to some customers who have poor/no service.

Sprint's call quality has always been above par in my opinion, and with the addition of HD Voice, Sprint probably inched out T-Mobile a bit in that area. Although it is available for everyone on T-Mobile and currently it is only available for about 1/3 of Sprint's entire network.

It's not quite available to everyone on TMo after all. AMR-WB only works when connected to a modernized tower, and not all of their urban HSPA+ footprint is upgraded with modernized NSN or Ericsson equipment.

LOL, then I call false advertising. T-mobile boasts about their voice quality compared to AT&T even when in 2G only areas. Unless I'm missing something and they are using two different technologies for voice.

T-Mobile still uses EFR full rate even in 2G areas which is still a step ahead of AT&T. That's how they can advertise enhanced call quality.

That's not strictly true. AMR-WB is supported on all UMTS cell sites that T-Mobile has. It's even supported on newer GSM cell sites, as well. The limiter is whether or not your handset supports the codec. Most handsets released in the last two years have the support built-in.

To bump this older thread, while trying out the new Direct Connect Now app (which is now compatible with phones like the Note 3 and the G2), I came across this page in the setup screen. Very interesting, as I still haven't heard anything about it internally.

I've never seen my Galaxy Note 3 use HD Voice even though I can place a call to my brother who also has a GN3.

Is there a list of phones that are compatible with the the Now App?

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
