Post update, I'm not seeing jitter when using the recents button after I have many apps open. Before it was giving me a flash of my home screen while trying to slide to the previous apps. Seems smoother now. Perhaps that's an unintended fix? but visually more pleasing.

I haven't noticed that issue, everything seems to be the same on my end post update.

Can you advise where the setting is to turn that on and off?

I don't have a voice networks setting there. Mobile networks is the closest, but no VOLTE option there. Wifi calling is even more hidden, it's in the phone app settings.

Interesting. I checked and it's still there after the update. It's an unlocked S10.

Same thing for my Unlocked Galaxy S9+ - no options to toggle on VoLTE.  Friggin lame of Sprint. 

I have the VoLTE option, however, on my Unlocked Galaxy S10+.

What's crazy is it's just the March update but it came in at 527mb. I thought it was volte for sure or maybe allowing for new configurations but I can't find anything. VoLTE issues are coming from all over so I'm guessing that's why they decided not to release it.

Yes update was huge. I also hoped for VOLTE after seeing it was a 500mb file.

I posted some time back about Play store was not updating on my Galaxy S9.  I took it to the local Sprint store on Dodge St in Omaha and they got it going each time (3 separate visits), but the problem persisted.  I finally figured something out.   I have added a paid version of Lookout.  Turns out that I have also added or Lookout added a VPN which activates automatically.  When I disable that, Play store updates, so every so often, I manually disable it a to get Play store to update.  Then the VPN automatically reactivates causing the backlog again.  At least, I have a workaround.

Something odd is up we are almost 2 months without so much as a security update. That's never happened before. At this point the next update has to be VoLTE or they are waiting for the final outcome for the merger before any more software updates go out.

I'm replacing one of my phones on my account from S7 to S9.
I would like to transfer all the apps and data. What is suggested to complete this process?

I bought two S-9's at Best Buy to replace two S-7's.  There actually was a Samsung employee at the store that took all 4 phones and used Smart Switch to move everything over to the S-9"s.   A few apps did not transfer but most of them did. I was not sure what was going to happen with the transfer process, so I did remove almost all data and photo's from the old phones. Stored it at home so it would not be lost no matter how any transfer was done.

I think the process went much faster since there was not much data or photo's to transfer.  Watching the Samsung employees do this convinced me that many people could do this at home themselves.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to use Smart Switch between the phones. I see another app call Syncios Samsung transfer.

Any suggestions on good protective cases. Thinking of getting Otterbox

      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.

    • I received a Sprint Business email over the weekend.  Closing could be as early as April 1, 2020.   
    • Great article!   Good find!!   Thank you! 
    • I didn't see that volte had become an option with the Android 10 update. it's been off, so that isn't the issue. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
    • A great article by Jim Patterson on rcrwireless.com. Some nuggets format 2.5GHz: “Braxton, Mike and John have authorized me to do some work at risk this year in getting ourselves ready to deploy the 2.5 gigahertz spectrum as soon as the deal closes. Nobody is more impatient for this thing to close than me. I wish I was deploying 2.5 radio on the network right now, but we’ve done work at low cost in terms of securing, permitting, and authorization to deploy 2.5. So as soon as this deal closes, we’re in a position where we can start laying down 2.5 radio on the new T-Mobile network.” Enterprise:   T-Mobile inherits not only a trough of spectrum with the Sprint acquisition, but hundreds of seasoned enterprise sales executives.  As Mike Sievert recently acknowledged in his appearance at the Citi conference a month ago, T-Mobile is under-indexed in enterprise.   Sprint’s enterprise roots are significant, having commanded close to 20% of the enterprise data market as recently as 2006.  There are many sales executives who cut their teeth with fleet management solutions (Nextel and Sprint), wireless access solutions (Clearwire and Sprint) and IP MPLS (Sprint).  *Without going through all of the details it’s important to note that the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 (and their variants) have the 2.5 GHz band already installed in the GSM (T-Mobile) version, and that the CDMA (Sprint) version of these devices already has T-Mobile’s Low Band 700 MHz spectrum, a.k.a. Band 12 (and Band 66 in the case of iPhone 😎 already enabled.  The CDMA version of the iPhone SE also has Band 12 enabled. Bottom line: there is the potential for backwards compatibility within the current handsets. And the iPhone XS (and variants) and iPhone 11 (and variants) are universal devices and include T-Mobile’s 600 MHz band which will be have a big benefit for Sprint customers. https://www.rcrwireless.com/20200216/analyst-angle/the-sunday-brief-new-t-mobile-cat-5-hurricane  
    • Good.  I bought shares in Shentel (SHEN) and US Cellular (USM) a year or two ago when their stock prices went down.  Waiting for a business consolidation event that causes their value to double or more.
