Get on the 'normal' channel and you should be able to get it on day 1 from here on out...

I thought opting out of the beta would require a device reset?  Is that not true any longer?

Only if you revert to stable. Right now there is no beta, and you're on the stable channel already. You have to reset only because downgrades aren't supported.

so going to android.com/beta takes me to https://developer.android.com/about/versions/pie/ and for the life of me I can't find an opt out option.

Googled for "opt out Android beta" and this was the first result https://www.google.com/android/beta

Looks like it should work (I never enrolled in the beta program).

Apparently Wi-Fi calling is working on the Pixel 3.  Wonder if that will come to the 2.

Highly doubt it. They said visual voicemail wouldn't come to Pixel 2 so I bet the same goes for WiFi calling ?

I've read multiple people mention that hd calling and wifi calling is indeed working on P3. Bolds well for VoLTE support for Sprint.

That is correct. For the Pixel 3. Not the 2 or 1.

Absolutely none. FCC certification needed for VoLTE, but there is no reason for no wifi calling on the Pixel 1 and 2. It's literally just a config file with the proper parameters. Same with VoLTE if they would submit the recertification. No special or different software

Thanks for the details. I was reading that some provisioning is required from Sprint to enable the features. This just plain bothers me.... ? Wish we I had Wi-Fi calling since my work walls are cement and signal barely penetrates the building :(

Agreed. In my case it's because 1x is insanely congested, and I've had to stop using Sprint all together for phone calls as a result (since I can't understand anyone and they can't understand me). I'm going to be really pissed off if they don't enable it for the Pixel 2. So much so that it might cause me to switch carriers...

Can we tweet Sprint or Marcelo even tho he is no longer is the CEO? lol or who should we push to get this update. Its ridiculous a flagship phone from Google doesn't have these features.

I figured out that we can connect to the Passpoint Secure wifi network by manually specifying AKA as the authentication method. I'm assuming the same works for any other Hotspot 2.0 provider that Sprint has a partnership with.7a74fa8ab897be5d2eaa98f2ac4080eb.jpgeea460b499428e799eb9a071bd0bc5e3.jpg

Yup, works pretty well at LAX and JFK. What airport did you used it at?

    • Interesting to read an update.  But I remember a lot of people back then said, 'I will believe it when I see it.'  Now, 5 years later, I can't help but hear those voices even louder now.  They were certainly proven right.  Even if it does eventually happen. Robert
    • I know that. I'm talking about further down the line for 5G. What I'm saying is that with the addition of Sprint's PCS, they can expand LTE on PCS and shift HSPA from AWS to the remaining 5MHz in PCS-B so that they can have a 25MHz n66 carrier down the line and a 20MHz n2 carrier since n2 is not currently registered for greater than 20MHz carriers. The other solution would be to simply get rid of HSPA altogether and have two 25MHz n66 and n25 carriers since n25 allows for 25MHz carriers. Then T-Mobile could retain the 5MHz PCS-G for legacy LTE service.
    • Hopefully they get more Sprint users in T-Mobile since they are reducing B25 for Sprint to 2 5x5 blocks and I've also notice B41 LTE disappearing in LI. Sent from my SM-G988U1 using Tapatalk
    • HSPA+ isn't on B2 in NY. It's on B4 out there since they have 20x20 B4. Before the merger TMO only had 10x10 total Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • They poached it from the lower 5MHz of Sprint's PCS B-block. I'm assuming the plan is to eventually expand PCS to 20MHz, leaving two 5MHz blocks (one in B-block and one in G-block) for legacy HSPA and Sprint LTE.
