This beta is pretty sweet, minus a few weird quirks. Never have I ever gotten this far down with such a high sot, I've hit 5 at about 20%. If I didn't have to go to work in the morning I would push it further I can really see 7 possibly 8 hours of sot.

This is a million times more stable than the S8 beta last year and it seems like Google Pay still works. 

Edit: Google Pay doesn't work.

This is why I didn't even bother with the beta this year, had way too many issues with the s8 beta and just don't feel like being bothered with it this year.

Why don't you just use Samsung pay?

Oh, I was referring to the fact the s8 beta was a total mess in general not about mobile payments specifically.  I use samsung pay for everything.

New Beta update today:

Just installed, can't think of anything I ran into with the last beta except for the frozen lock screen which only happened two times. Hopefully this one is just as good.

If any one wants calling plus again on beta, dial ##72786# and when is done, you can activate LTE calling beta. Credit goes to Jesito473.6ccd563911fe00a95a04e331d3283722.jpg

Maybe for you, but not for a handful of us.

Turning on LTE calling rendered my phone calling useless. It would dial but then there was just nothing on the other end, total silence. When I disabled the LTE calling portion of it, it worked fine. So unless other people are having a better experience, I would wait.

With this new update, do we still have the ability to toggle on/off the camera shutter sound?

I had the same problem, doing a profile update fixed it.

I did the dialer code reset and then did the profile update. My test worked for the phone call using LTE calling. 

When it failed I was at my Target that has a Magic Box....I wonder if that was the issue? Wife was NOT pleased, lol.

Before I did the profile update it looked to be trying to make a call over WiFi even though I wasn't on WiFi, did the profile update and it was all back to normal.🤷‍♂️

Yeah, mine failed again to hear anyone on the call. I unchecked the LTE calling for now. Not stable enough on my device. I did cache wipes and everything.

Well I performed the update, did the dialer code reset and now I have lost the option for voice networks. Was hoping to take advantage of calling plus.

I don't think that trick works on our Unlocked model GS9+.

      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.
