Samsung Galaxy Note 4 User Thread

Recommended Posts

The issue is not with the device. Plenty of current handset variants on VZW, AT&T, and T-Mobile support VoLTE. The original FCC OET filings or Class II Permissive Change filings indicate so.

 

Sprint just has not made VoLTE a priority -- probably because VoLTE coverage is poor in comparison to CDMA1X coverage. And until Sprint makes VoLTE a priority, the device will be irrelevant. VoLTE support is a network issue. So, do not get hung up on whether X device will be VoLTE capable.

 

AJ

I'm fully aware of device capabilities. I have a T-Mobile Note 4 with VoLTE performing very well.

 

I asked about any new info on Sprint VoLTE and Note 5 (or any future phones). Girlfriend has a Note 2.

 

My brief Google search, showed nothing of substance.

 

Edit: GalaxyGuy adequately answered my question.

Integrating Google voice and using hangouts for your calls will get you the simultaneous voice and data you are after on any device. Just be prepared for a few more dropped calls.

I know. Rather not go that route.

 

Thanks

Perhaps we should start a VoLTEolics Anonymous Support Group for some who can't get over no VoLTE in any current Sprint phones :)

Is anyone else having rebooting problems with their Note 4 after the Lollipop update?  It reboots at random and gets stuck at the Sprint Spark boot screen and I have to pull the battery.  It seems to happen every few days when I'm not using the phone.

 

I've already tried a factory reset.

I got my note already with the lollipop update. On a rare occasion when i go to wake it up on charge the screen never comes on. After a bit it restarts, about the only issue i have encountered the past few weeks with it.

I have not had the reboot issue. I can't really think of any strange issues, except for needing to reboot it about once a day. After about 24 hours of running, it seems to get a little sluggish. I wouldn't consider it a huge issue though.

Staff had to remove some posts in this thread because of a report.

 

This is a reminder to S4GRU's fine membership that discussion of unauthorized tethering/hotspot is prohibited.  That is called stealing.  If you want tethering/hotspot, pay for it.  Or jump on a new plan that includes it.  But using "unlimited" data for unauthorized tethering/hotspot both violates Sprint's Ts and Cs and negatively affects the network experience for fellow users.

I saw that this morning. I also saw he was a premier sponsor which surprised me. I figured all premier members would know that by now.

I Alsco have reboot problems. A few times a week. It seems to be happening more frequently. I don't get stuck at the Spark screen.

Maybe your GPS is dead. Someone here may know if there's a way to confirm it though.

Of anyone is using a mhl to hdmi adapter is there a way to change the quality? It looks fine up close but at 10 feet some of the text is a little blurry. I know my TV is only 720p but I've yet to find a setting to make the quality better.

According to Sprint support, this update (OE1) is for bug fixes and factory reset protection. From what I've read, this helps prevent someone from stealing your phone and factory resetting it so they can then use it.

Wonder what the other "bug fixes" are.

 

I'll be interesting to see of course if anything is changed performance wise with radio.

I know it wouldn't be a huge market, but if just one company would make cases that are designed to accommodate a wireless backplate, I would be happy.

 

I'm using a self-modified Spigen case but it would be nice to have a case designed for the increased thickness.

If I'm not mistaken someone did make a case that fit the wireless charging, it might have been the s5 but not 100% sure. I know a otterbox defender won't work.

If you ever find it again, and if it's for the Note 4, let me know. I love the wireless charging, but I also like to have a slim case too. It's just a little difficult to have the best of both when I haven't found a case that is truly designed for it.
