Just got the first Android 10 beta update for my S9, and it had the VOLTE toggle on it. Hurray

August security patch is out ARH3, 270mb  

Got a chance to compare the GS9 against the V20's radio.  Holy Jesus! The GS9+'s radio performance is in another stratosphere! 30-60% better speeds on average. Also holds onto B41 quite a bit mor

Screen shot, any volte information?

Update came in at under 100mb so I didn't bother look at the details or take a screen cap.

Thank you, and for whoever asked earlier I will point out that there is no volte in this update.  This might have been rather obvious given the update size but still its always possible.  I guess we keep on keepin on waiting :)

VoLTE shouldn't take up a lot of space. Since Sprint is using the standard implementation now, there's no new software. It's just a text file with a few lines with the config info. Realistically shouldn't take more than a few KB.

So minus the GUI changes to show volte instead of calling plus, are you saying that the actual implementation to switch over to volte can come in the form of a profile update?  i.e. to change the APN and such? 

 

Thanks

It can't be pushed as a profile update to my knowledge. It has to be either built into the OS, or it can be released as an app that is cryptographically signed with the same certificate that signed the SIM card: https://source.android.com/devices/tech/config/carrier

 

The My Sprint app could be used for example if Sprint uses the same certificate as the SIM, but I don't believe that they do. They could just release a new app called something like Sprint VoLTE Enabler and it would enable VoLTE on any device running Android 6.0 and up (assuming they filed FCC recertification for it). But any device running 6.0 and up has the software already to do Sprint VoLTE, since they've moved to a standard implementation. Sprint just has to enable it and get it recertified... No OS updates are actually required.

Great, thank you for the explanation!

You can actually browse the configuration files in the Android source. Look at the current Sprint config: https://android.googlesource.com/platform/packages/apps/CarrierConfig/+/master/assets/carrier_config_carrierid_1788_Sprint.xml

And compare it to the Verizon config, which has everything setup for VoLTE: https://android.googlesource.com/platform/packages/apps/CarrierConfig/+/master/assets/carrier_config_carrierid_1839_Verizon-Wireless.xml

Or the T-Mobile config (which has VoLTE enabled as well): https://android.googlesource.com/platform/packages/apps/CarrierConfig/+/master/assets/carrier_config_carrierid_1_T-Mobile-US.xml

An updated config file with the proper settings is all that's technically required for VoLTE (there may be other similar config files as well)

I have the unlocked and received the December security patch on December 10th.

For those of you getting the Dec update, are you on a Sprint branded S9 or an unlocked one? I only ask as I am still on November security patch and just checked for updates and there is nothing.

Was told that s9 is live but s9+ on hold...

Beta 4 is out apparently, but I can't download it. Says I'm up to date, been trying since Friday night.

I still have nothing for my S9+ for Beta 4!

The stable is reportedly rolling out in Germany

Nothing here yet either for the S9+, and apparently the official version of pie is rolling out so I guess I won't get beta 4?😂

I upgraded to the unlocked S9 plus. Does this not support WiFi calling and 25+26CA?

Unlocked s9+ supports wifi calling. You have to enable it on sprint.com first and then enable it on your phone. 

I'm just curious does anyone else have an unlocked s9 and is still on November 1 security patch? Or are all the Dec 1 patch updates for those in the beta program?

      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.

      Noticed on TM Reddit that the S8 Active is coming unlocked, so would be compatible with Sprint.
      (Also supports TM B71)
