Sprint VoLTE Discussion Thread Redux

Recommended Posts

I live in Central Atlanta and though I don't have volte on my Galaxy S9+ I do have calling plus and I absolutely cannot stand it. CDMA has much further range and never drops and is completely clear. VoLTE depends (obviously) on an extremely robust LTE network which - even in Atlanta - just doesn't exist. Yes it's a strong LTE showing for Sprint here but look at my words. It's really good but it is not what I would call "extremely robust." I cannot see any advantage to using it and am quick to toggle calling plus off anytime I accidentally toggle it on. 

Crazy to hear its not so grand where you are.  I can not remember falling back to 3G lately at all on the north end of Midtown.  Only issues I have had are between stations underground on the MARTA.  Other than that, I had no issues between the north side of Midtown and where Gus' Fried Chicken is (which I may have visited twice last week lol.)

Now if we could only use TMobiles VOLTE. I was TMobile roaming in a area of Minnesota. Only had data at times.

You should be able to fall back to Verizon/Sprint/USCC/other regional carriers’ 1x for voice...

It did on Sprints but it didn't always stay connected. Never saw VZW. Uscc isn't in MN

It's not a fallback to 3G so much as it is completely useless band 26. This results in a horrendous VoLTE calling experience between the islands of nearly 300mbps data speeds on those massive mimo equipped towers/cells. In between? Yikes.

VoLTE will always work fine as long as RF conditions are sufficient for a 12.65kbps data session. QoS takes congestion out of the equation. Your experience on Calling Plus is not at all indicative of the experience on VoLTE. 

To give a personal example, Calling Plus never worked at football games for one of my friends but VoLTE has no issues at all.

Oh God I really hope you're right. Calling plus was a cute experiment but, uh, I would hope that isn't representative of what the true VoLTE experience is like. From what you're saying it isn't. Any idea when the S9+ will get VoLTE support?

Yeah—I’m surprised they even tested Calling Plus publicly. 

I’m not sure what the S9/S9+ will get VoLTE, but I *think* I heard somewhere that the next Android update brings VoLTE to all ISIM devices. Definitely don’t quote me on that though.

December / January time frame for many devices is what was going around last I heard.

I hope so. My S8 when out of me so I got the S9 plus. I loved the VOLTE I had on the S8 which I don't get (yet) on the S9.

Does VoLTE work on any Pixel phones yet? What about VoLTE roaming on USC?

Nothing yet on Pixel 3 XL or Pixel 2 XL for VoLTE

      Does anyone have the J7 Perx yet? "Calling Plus" (VoLTE Lite) is supposedly going live today and is supported on this device.

      AT&T took the plunge. Let's see how far they can go with it and how it compares to the HD Voice offerings of Sprint and T-Mobile.

      See this article:
       
      http://www.fiercebroadbandwireless.com/story/verizon-pushes-back-volte-service-until-2014/2012-10-11
       
      At first, VoLTE will be used to deliver "Rich Communications Services" (which look like something similar to what Voice over IP/Video over IP outfits offer today) rather than completely replacing narrowband voice. It will be awhile before Verizon is willing to commit to that, due in part to LTE outages in late 2011.
       
      On the flip side is MetroPC, which has pushed VoLTE as hard as it could.
       
      Then there's Sprint, which will stick to voice over 1x for the foreseeable future, but routes Direct Connect over IP. Sprint's latest DC incarnation seems quite similar to one facet of RCS over LTE.
