Since the GS8 now has the VoLTE software release, does that mean that we won't get anymore updates for the GS8 until VoLTE is out of beta and live?!

Interesting.  I haven't noticed any difference in that area.

Is there a way to by pass the beta update I signed up for but didn't install and go to this one instead?

Anybody take this january update with an airave 3 lte? My s8 refuses to stay connected to the lte side for more than a few seconds now, and prefers to stay on tmobile lte roaming (weak signal). It will even hang on tmobile when I drive away from my house for a few miles, before finally latching back onto sprint b41.

I've tried reprovisioning my phone, updated profile.....nothing seems to help. My wife's s9 doesn't have a problem connecting to it, so I know it's not the airave. Anybody have any more ideas?

Thanks.

Anyone having issues with MMS with Wi-Fi calling, maybe after the VoLTE update? (I have the Active but pretty similar)

In a low signal area and didn't have an issue before.. Now the just stall downloading.

This screen shot shows what my phone has been doing. Sometimes it will show the VoLTE icon next to the signal bars, with the exclamation point. It will sit like that for about a minute and then pop over to 3g or tmobile roaming, both of which are very weak where I'm at. I've tried reprovisioning, even a factory reset, but nothing seems to matter. I've reset the airave, but I don't think that's the issue since my wife's phone connects just fine.

Is there anything I'm missing before I call sprint and have the dreaded 2 hour call where they go through all the standard stuff to try to fix it?f15f76aa02a422fa0158945011885d02.jpg

Try dialing  ##72786#
Thanks for the suggestion, but i've done that a few times already. Must just be a bad update from samsung.... I hope it's fixed when android 9 gets released to the s8.

Does anyone know how much of a change is allowed by the fingerprint scanner? My fingerprints might be wearing off or changing based on wear and tear just curious. I might just reset them or wait to see if the print starts working.
