My new Samsung Galaxy S9 purchased last week is set to automatic update. There have been a few updates since I brought it out into the real world.

It shows:

Baseband version G960USQ3ARI4

Build number:  R16NW.G960USQS3ARI4

How does that compare to what you are posting?

That's the latest firmware.

I'm hoping the next update on unlocked devices enables VoLTE. It might not even be necessary since we don't have to remove the Calling Plus menu.

I hope for the same on the Sprint branded devices.

Thanks, other users reported that above. I assume your s9 is unlocked?

AS I indicated, I just acquired my Galaxy S9.  A lot of excitement about 5x5, 10x10, etc was created just before I went to other things.

SCP is showing some reports of B25 and Band B41 with superscripts of 2 or 3.  Does the Galaxy make any use of those possibilities assuming the tower has those to offer?

GS9 has pretty much all the tech Sprint supports and more..

Don't know if I am losing my mind or not, but I am not able to receive a text notification while on the phone. I am using Android Messages and can receive an audible notification along with vibration, but the minute I am on a call, all of that stops. I do continue to receive a notification in the notification bar.  Is anyone else having this issue?

Isn't that intentional? It's so that while you're on the phone the the party doesn't hear a vibration or beep when you get a notification.

Yup, no VoLTE I can confirm.  I do have a question though.  The last galaxy I had before my s9 was the s2 so I am not too familiar with how their baseband radio updates work.  For the s9 does the baseband version change every time there is a system update regardless if there is actually new radio firmware?  The reason I ask is because every security update we get the baseband version changes but the update size seems too small to contain radio firmware too.  I used htc phones for the past 6 years or so and the baseband version would only change when there was new radio firmware.

Basebands almost always gets updated with modern Samsung devices. You will notice most times that network performance changes quite often (most are subtle differences)

      Its almost time for the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Phones! I'm planning on pre-ordering either the S20+ or Ultra. Current Rumors have it going on Pre-order February 11.  Let the discussion commence...

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      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.

      hello all i feel i should start a note 9 rumor thread  please post rumors and what not here.

    • I was with sprint for 12 plus years and switched to t mo about a year ago cause going on my girlfriend's plan with now 4 lines was cheaper than what I had with sprint.   I couldn't agree more with you about the areas I frequent with sprint was and is better than t mobile when I switched.   But I see alot of sprint sites that will be prefect for t mo taking over.  I sure hope they do.     You are also correct on band 71 not fixing the gaps.  
    • Yep, I am still on Sprint, but I do have a T-Mobile phone to play with.  I find t-Mobile service was much worse than Sprint service in the places I traveled in the last month or two.   The T-Mobile network just does not have enough sites and therefor band 2, 4, & 66 just can not cover much of their territory.  Since those bands quite often fail to provide the service, the band 12 and band 71 have to do the lifting.  Those two bands are ave available to latch onto, but they are always totally  congested. T-Mobile desperately needed the Spectrum owned by Sprint and also the additional cell sites that Sprint had. Even with that, they STILL need to add more NEW sites.   T-Mobile was a marketing powerhouse. People believed what T-Mobile put out.  However, it was a bunch of hype and the service was not nearly as good as claimed. They got away with this for a long time, but without more spectrum they were slowing going to have big issues.  They do have  a chance to fix this if they ever get the Sprint and T-Mobile networks combined correctly. That remains to be seen. Before anybody jumps all over me for this post, I do agree that T-Mobile was fine in some areas.  It sure was not fine in a bunch of other areas.  Band 71 did not fix it either. It helped, but did not really fix the issues in many places.
    • Hey I just tried that code and what do you think i should try and set my s20 plus on t mobile too? I'm in Colorado.
    • T mo brags about band71 with its great for penetrating building's and yet it's worse than than 3g. Now I'm not often on band 71 or band 12 but I except it to work when I am.    
    • As far as I'm concerned, this is a good thing. But then I worked for Sprint for 27 years, and I'm sad to see the name go away.
