You don't get the 50gb per month hotspot or is that not enough for you?

I forgot to post that when my phone dropped from WiFi Calling to LTE calling while I was on the phone with Magic Box support, the VoLTE icon popped up in the top right corner. I'm on the OneUI beta with an unlocked S9+.

Nice! We're you connected to the MB while on the call?

I cannot get calling plus enabled on my g965u1. Anyone know if there is a workaround with shortcut master or another way to do this?

I am eagerly waiting for VoLTE on my unlocked S9. It has been incredible frustrating especially here in LA. Google maps is needed to get around unforeseen traffic problems, but will not update if I am on a call. Since I am usually chatting on the phone while driving longer distances, it would be a huge help! Given that Android P seems to be moving through beta well, hopefully it is implemented in the next month or so! If that comes with VoLTE enabled I will be a happy camper.

Side-note I have been with Sprint since 2003 or so. I don't really understand all the concerns with network. It's honestly oddly exciting to keep getting updates instead of having everything just available. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Hopefully you are also using the Google Maps off-line feature for your main driving areas, which would then speed up the traffic reporting when you have data signal since less map data would be needed at that time.  Sprint drive would also help, but of course more $$.

I don't really use google maps offline, since the second I hang up the call it updates instantly. I just have to keep calls short or do the hang up, call back game. Traffic can be so weird in LA. One example, driving from airport at 1 am, there was an accident on a major freeway closing all lanes. If I didn't have maps on it would never have told me to take an earlier exit to avoid a 20 minute parking lot jam. That being said I wasn't on the phone, but this kind of thing happens in large cities all the time. Just knowing the city well won't help at all.

There's a new Beta update out today. It brings back the "close all" button for 3rd party launchers and is very, very snappy and fluid all around. Good updates in this Beta. Still have to try out the LTE calling on this one as the last version was flaky for me when I called my wife on LTE calling. We will see....

Oh yeah, the shutter sound toggle is stiiiiillll there. Hopefully it stays! I'm not holding my breath.

Weird I didn't get a notification from the Samsung Members app about a new update, but there it was glad the clock is fixed had to install Google's clock app which isn't as nice.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
       
      Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
      The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
      We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.

      Noticed on TM Reddit that the S8 Active is coming unlocked, so would be compatible with Sprint.
      (Also supports TM B71)
    • By Andrew Revering
      My original post was intended to just be a question about the upcoming S8's dual-sim possibility... however this thread ended up being the main S8/S8+ thread, so I'm modifying my original post to include some main points that we've gathered about the device and provide some useful resources:   Misc FYIs ------------------------------------ All MSLs appear to be 000000 To force band 41 only (thanks Terrell352): ##DATA# MSL 000000 then go to LTE and turn off b25 and b26. ##debug# works on this device (thanks nexgencpu)Cleaner way to look at carriers,CA and signal strength etc.. Want Root permissions? This will trip KNOX and you won't be able to use Samsung Pay or other KNOX features
      Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+
        Carrier/Dual Sim Info ------------------------------------ I have Sprint (obviously), but I have property where the only carrier is AT&T. FreedomPop now has a free AT&T SIM you can buy for limited voice, data & texting, which is perfect for my limited needs when I'm at my cabin. Converting the phone to a Dual-SIM phone then becomes convenient for me with the FreedomPop SIM + Sprint. With that in mind, here is some useful info (including a solution below):   See what frequencies/networks your phone supports: https://www.frequencycheck.com/ All networks are shipping the 'U' version which has support for all US networks but are software-locked. Once unlocked they will work on any US network. Dual Sim version not available in US or UK. The International Dual Sim model S8+ is SM-955FD. You can convert your single-sim US model into a dual sim by 1) unlocking and 2) add a $50 dual-sim adapter from magic-sim or simore (I bought the Simore one and it ripped before I could even try it once. They would not refund) If you are within a contract and/or didn't pay full price for your phone and don't want to wait, you can unlock your phone: https://theunlockr.com/unlock-my-phone/ usually for something like $20. Correction: These unlockers don't work for CDMA Sprint phones. You have to either buy an Unlocked phone or get Sprint to unlock it for you. Correction2: There is at least one guy who knows how to do it! See 'Solution' below. You can convert it into a Dual-SIM by adding one of these: http://www.magic-sim.com/ or http://www.simore.com/  (don't recommend simore, mine tore easily) I found a ---> SOLUTION <--  
      Charging/Cables
      ----------------------------- Info from mmark27   Remember only buy stuff that's been approved by Benson Leung, the Google Engineer that tests tons of USB-C items. You can search him on Amazon. USB-C crappy products can fry your phone and start fires.  From what I (mmark27) understand, the phones are only Quick Charge 2.0 compliant officially. They may pick up QC 4.0 compliance at some point as the chip supports it, but for now QC2.0 is the safe bet.  choetech fast charging pads don't work Seneo fast wireless charger do work micro-female to male USB-C USB-3.0 to USB-C Wireless charging pads that look just like the ones at Best Buy from Samsung Pleson fast charging pads work with S8 and S8+ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MRXM473/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Kv5-ybKG6TSZP  
        Noteworthy Specs -------------------------------  
      Only difference between S8 and S8+ is screen size and battery size. Bezel free, all screen design No physical home button 5.8" & 6.2" Plus Version 'Infinity' QHD Amoled Display 12mp f1.7 rear, and 8mp f1.7 front cameras, auto focus Wifi Calling Dual Edge Only Display Bluetooth 5.0 for double speed and four times the range 3000mAH (S8) & 3500mAH (S8+) battery, fast charging 4 GB RAM Waterproof 64 GB built in storage Bixby Artificial Intelligence, dedicated button Iris Scanner Pressure Sensitive "3D" Touch home button Wireless Charging Can see screen with polarized glasses, unlike with LCD screens (HTC 10, etc) Always On Display PC Replacement (DEX) Fingerprint sensor on back DOES have a headphone jack USB Type C MicroSD Expansion HPUE compliant, which means it will extend existing signal range by 30%, including indoors!In my limited experience with the device, HPUE DOES work. Maybe it doesn't help speeds, I don't know -- but in 2 locations (in two different states) where I normally have no signal, I can now make phone calls and transfer data with a weak signal that I never had before.  
       
      ============================ORIGINAL POST=====================================
       
      I'm planning to upgrade to the Galaxy S8 when it's available on April 21st...
       
      I would really like a Dual SIM version and have Sprint as my primary carrier and use a FreedomPop ATT SIM as a 2nd option when I'm up at my land which is only covered by ATT.
       
      After some research, it seems that the Dual SIM version is the 'International Unlocked' version which does not have the capability of CDMA/CDMA2000 for the 3G/1X portion of Sprint coverage. Since LTE is actually a GSM protocol it has the capability of doing Sprint's LTE, but other services may be limited.
       
      Is this correct?
       
      If so, that probably means I just want to buy the Sprint version and get one of those little dual sim adapters you can now get like this one: http://www.magic-sim.com/
       
      Also, in order to use a SIM from a GSM provider, the phone needs to be unlocked, which outside of contract means I'd either have to wait 2 years, or just buy the full-price phone outright, and then get it unlocked.
       
      Then I can use my ATT SIM, but again coverage may be limited because the radios are tuned for Sprint, not ATT. But I think it may be possible for some of their services to work.
       
      ... does this understanding sound correct? Is there another way I can go about what I'm trying to accomplish?

      A new Samsung tablet certified for Sprint (and others) went through the FCC a few days ago..
       
      Category 6 UE
      LTE Bands 2-4-5-12-25-26-41
      Carrier Aggregation capable for Downlink operations. 2xCA B41

      Looks to be one of the bigger flagship tablets (~10" ?) and will be the 11th 2xB41 CA capable device to come to Sprint.
