VoLTE/Calling+ on iPhone

My thoughts?  FLIP THE DAMN SWITCH SPRINT!    :D

 

edit:  tested just a minute ago, and this is not live in Atlanta, GA

Yup, nothing up here in Seattle either  

I wish they’d get VoLTE up and running but leave it disabled by default. I could see them doing what Verizon did when they initially rolled VoLTE out: requiring users to enable VoLTE on their account (through the website or something) until they’re confident enough to enable it by default.

Hmmm. Something is definitely going on especially if it’s been reported in multiple states. Maybe sprint is slowly flipping to switch but in stages. I guess from their findings, calling plus worked better than expected.

This would ensure that when there's call drops, the user would at least know why. Opt-in would be great, I'd love to start testing it in my market. Every site here is LTE with no drops, I think the experience would be positive.

I have had it on the note 8 for a little over a month.. its pretty good, like the surf and talk when needed..

CON... if you are in a coverage area that "holds" to long.. then its CRAP.  there are some areas here, on main roads/areas, that have ify LTE -105 to -115, and it gets like old time analog...

For sure need overlap towers to make it awesome.. or a way to switch internal easily...

It's possible that when VoLTE prioritization goes into effect, what you're seeing will go away. -105 to -115 should be completely usable, especially on a low-bandwidth voice call. It's possible that the sites are overloaded with other traffic and low signal just amplifies the problem.

    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
    • The Verge wrote an article on Dish’s network.    https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/1/23188077/dish-wireless-project-genesis-first-week-testing-speeds-coverage
    • I guess that makes sense. I know that ZiplyFiber (my ISP) has had issues with sourcing fiber as well.  Also, that recently upgraded site is interesting. NOt only does it have a strange eNB value, 236960, which  is different from the ones usually around here but also, all of the LTE bands (including B41) are on the same eNB. This is the first time I have seen  T-Mobile do that in this area.  Also found another upgraded site, eNB 84770, by FireStation 26 has been upgraded with B71/n71 (no n41). 
    • Almost the exact same thing happened on my Verizon Galaxy Flip a couple days ago.
