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

Just received the November 1 security update for my UNLOCKED s9.   No VOLTE.   No 25+41 aggregation either. The last few updates did absolutely NOTHING that is visible to me.

I gave up on the S9 plus. Got the Note 10 plus on Monday. Awesome device. Great sale at Best Buy. May be over now but even included upgraders like me. Fyi 
How much did you pay for your note 10+?

It was $650 I believe.  I chose to finance it rather than pay out right. Awesome deal.

Did you have to trade in your S9+? I was looking at it but they were so busy it was a 3 hour wait to talk to someone

I don't think this calls for a wink my friend. 14 months after the S8 is not good. Also it is killing Sprints rootmetrics scores because they are using the S9 and are missing out on all kinds of features not enabled crippling Sprint results. They are likely using calling plus which we all know is terrible. But better late than never I guess.

Have you had any opportunity to test with it?
Any ideas on how far behind the related non-beta updates have been running?

So far it seems pretty stable, only issue I've noticed so far is that Google Pay thinks it's "uncertified software" and wont work. Maybe a little less battery life, but its too soon to tell. It's got the December Security patch and a Dec 6 date on the kernal, so it's fresh out of the oven.

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

By the way, although I have VoLTE turned on, It doesn't actually work yet. I'm in Boulder county Colorado which I think has VoLTE activated.

I was just in Boulder yesterday. It works and also more than that works. You have 4xca interband active there too. 25/b41+b41+b41 is active.

I just got the One UI 2 beta with Dec security patch on unlocked s9. I toggled VoLTE on and it works! Just wondering why there is no icon to indicate that it is active. 

How can you be sure your call is going over VoLTE?

I don't believe unlocked devices had calling plus. Either way I never did.

My unlocked S9 had calling plus on Android 9, but I don't see it in the menus anymore. You might be onto something. Wish there was some sort of icon to tell for sure.

It's a beta program offered through the Samsung Members app. If it's still available you will see a banner offering a signup on the opening page of the app. It's beta,so not everything is perfect and Google pay won't work. 

The official version is supposed to be available in a few weeks.

Official won't be for a few months I expect as beta just launched a week ago. Also when you are accepted nothing happens. You need to go to manually check for updates and you will get the beta software. 

I was able to use maps while on a call driving home so for sure volte is working! 

Also, battery life seems to be very significantly improved. Not sure if this is just this early beta or not, but it's improved at least 50 percent. Other users are reporting same in beta app.

    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25. 
    • Austin has now narrowed B2 to 15x15 to support a second 10x10 n25 channel, this time entirely in PCS A-F. So T-Mobile now has 35x35 FD (n71 + n25) and 180 MHz TD (n41) NR live here, and LTE single carrier bandwidth now tops out at 15x15. LTE is down to 5x5 B12, 15x15 B2, 10x10+10x10+5x5 B66, so they now have 5 carriers each of LTE and NR, with 45x45 total LTE.
