As far as I know they still don't allow unlocked phones to use VoLTE among other things. My mom's factory unlocked S9+ can't use VoLTE, Wifi calling, or advanced messaging. 

Yes it can. You can use RCS through Google Messages and WiFi Calling is available in the dialer settings instead of under Connection settings. The only thing the unlocked variant of the S9 lacks is VoLTE. On the unlocked S10, you get all three.

Just received the OCT update for my s9 UNLOCKED.  No changes are apparent. No VOLTE.   No improved carrier aggregation options.

Samsung-----You are looking bad, very bad.   The Oct update is pushed on November 1.  Late and it looks worthless.  Nothing gained unless it is hidden.

Meanwhile the S10 series just got the November 1 update on November 1. The S10 5G got a bunch of new features over 1GB a few days ago. Mostly Note 10 features like dynamic wallpaper.

Not sure exactly what you are asking here, but it is a UNLOCKED s9 purchased at Best Buy on the Sprint Network.

Sorry is it a Samsung issue or Sprint for not getting those features?

Could be either or both. Why an s-8 would be ahead of a s9 in features does need answered?  I desperately need 25 + 41 aggregation. My s9 has band 41 about everywhere due to adequate cell sites that are spaced correctly.   But while I have decent band 41 on the receive side, the phone desperately needs to do the upload on band 25.  Phone just hangs onto band 41 but little or no upload makes the service unusable. I am beginning to wonder if the s9 is ever going to be able to be upgraded to 25 + 41.  Beginning to wonder if VOLTE will ever appear on the s9.

I was told 2-3 weeks for VOLTE so we will see

I'm not sure I buy that but I also don't really need it. But I do really want to know what the issue is with this damn phone that the prior and post generations could do it but the 9 can't. Like, what the actual F?

VoLTE is coming to the GS9. Work is underway now to transition from Calling Plus to VoLTE. It was likely supposed to get it sooner, until work on VoLTE was stopped last year.

Was stoppage on said work related to the (possibly/maybe/who knows) pending Tmo merger?

Hopefully VOLTE will be included in that update if not earlier.

      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.
