Did you ever opt in for the beta of pie? If you don't leave the beta then you won't receive the update.

I've had every Nexus device since the Galaxy Nexus. However, Pixel's pricing priced me out. I too hope they reduce their pricing as I prefer Pure Android. Typed from my Nexus 6P with a cracked scree

2X and 3X CA DL B41 2X CA DL B25 No UL CA HPUE 4x4 MIMO (10 streams) 256/64 QAM DL-UL      

Pixel has been a paradigm shift.  While Nexus was priced squarely at the mid range, Pixel is aimed at the high end flagship.  Some surmised that to compete with the mind share held by Apple and Samsun

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.

I wonder what is the reason why cant get these features on the pixel 2? 
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?

    • That's actually important information. If the Velvet can't get NR CA with a Sprint SIM, but can with a TMo one, that does indicate that the S21 may have something similar going on. At which point I don't think it's a matter of TMo wanting one way or the other. Rather, Sprint's core can't do NR CA because n41 was going to be the only band.
    • I agree. What differentiates the Everything Data plan from kickstart except hotspot and unthrottled data?    As for 5g I can get NSA 5g on a sprint sim (tna) but cannot get SA 5g unless I TNX and get throttled to 2.3 on video... Crazy.
    • I would say given the Everything Data plan wording and the premium price paid for Everything Data, you should have unthrottled.  If true, for me personally, this makes the purchase of any 5G phone from T-Mobile undesirable given that TNX is required to get 5G at all.  Where I live inside the Columbus Ohio beltway, the speed ranking is Sprint, then AT&T, then T-Mobile, then Verizon.  T-Mobile has improved, but not enough to change their ranking.  T-Mobile would likely win if they converted one of the two Sprint only sites near me to T-Mobile (no permits seen). The throttling should be validated against the physical network.  What happens if only band b25 is allowed so it is only on Sprint even with the TNX network?
    • Just drove by there today and SE03XC157 is back online. I guess the aforementioned wind storm temporarily knocked it offline.
    • Fast appears to be 20% slower than other speed tests... I have a 250 up and down fiber connect at home.. regularly at 270.   Just did a fast test twice... barely hit 200
