Sprint VoLTE Discussion thread [was Sprint partners with BroadSoft for VoLTE]


Recommended Posts

When Verizon decide to unplug CDMA, Sprint will have to follow. otherwise, roaming and device cost will be a problem

I don't see this being an issue, Sprint and Verizon devices diverged several years ago. Almost all current devices are custom radios tailored to the carrier with the exception of devices like the Nexus 5.

I was wondering if Sprint has made and headway on VoLTE?

 

new deployment dates?

We haven't heard any meaningful info since our article.

what does this indicate VOLTE coming soon, when i place a call i cannot  access data but it shows LTE is connected in signal check.

I think this is just a glitch from signal check.

To clarify, it is not a glitch from Signal Check.  It is a glitch from Android.  Signal Check is receiving info from Android that says that both are connected at the same time, but it is not.  Android is not refreshing the data properly, so apps that use that data can be fully accurate every second.

Well it does only in some places not everywhere or every time, previously signal check would show only LTE but now it shows both connected.And the good part is voice and data shows different SID.

Tweeted at Marcelo to find out if I could get him to say anything about VoLTE, Sprint Care tweeted at me that no date has been announced but to "stay tuned"; this tweet had the CEO Line picture attached. Hopefully by year's end?

I am still using an older Galaxy S4 mainly because I occasionally need data while I am on a call.

 

I really hope they work out something soon. The other networks have had it for a while already.

I wouldn't expect anything in the next 5 yrs on this.

Enable Google voice/Sprint integration and there you go. Phone calls over LTE with the hangouts dialer.

Does hangouts intercept incoming calls if I do the integration?

 

Yes, if you enable incoming calls under hangout settings.

 

I'm integrated with a Google voice number, but I'd imagine it would work the same with a Sprint integrated number. Make sure to disable your phone under Google voice settings as a forwarding device so you don't drop to 1X when somebody calls you.

I might give that a shot. Last time I tried to integrate my Sprint number with GV a couple years ago I had all sorts of problems, maybe it's better now.

I'm definitely intrigued. I've had issues with missed calls due to my phone not falling back to 1x to receive calls. My only issue would be waiting until Sprint solves some of the balancing issues. B26 tends to get overloaded at times on some parts of town.

 

How does it handle on 3G EVDO? Any noticeable lag while on calls?

You can have it do that. It's been a while since I used Hangouts for incoming calls, but the Hangouts dialer would always ring before the regular dialer would. If I left it go long enough both would start ringing. One really nice thing about integration with Hangouts is no more eCSFB failing and not letting calls through. It's been happening to me a lot the last week or so, I'm probably going back to using Hangouts for incoming calls so I don't miss anymore.

For a Sprint/Google Voice integrated number, what effect does enabling the Hangouts Dialer have on the Google Voice app?  Is SMS still delivered to the Google Voice app?

Enabling the Hangouts dialer thankfully has no effect on the way texts are delivered.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
