Sprint VoLTE Discussion Thread Redux

Recommended Posts

Is there any truth to the merger holding up the VoLTE rollout? 

Are we at 50% completion, 75, etc.?

Shouldn't have anything to do with that. Don't know the reason ( other than wanting to lose Customer's) as to why devices that support it aren't getting it.

With VoLTE for me, the icon sometimes disappears, sometimes for days, then magically come back.  And I've noticed that I lose it when I go to 3G and the back to LTE.  It's like it doesn't initiate it when it get back to LTE, and it take a while (days) for it to.

If the network isn't up to spiff in a specific market, pointless to launch VoLTE. All Sprint has going for it is its voice dependability. Why crush your only positive?

Has Sprint found out, when VOLTE will be in Mississippi? Sure am tired of seeing this Update every day, that said not to add until VOLTE is available!

You can install the update. It's just VoLTE won't work until Sprint enables it in your area.

No, that's not what it says. You are confused.

Not confused, It says you can not receive Data if not on WIFI or VOLTE, & will not accept Update!

Calling Plus is being removed in this update. Calling Plus is being phased out in favor of VoLTE. You will not be able to be on a call and data at the same time unless VoLTE is enabled in your market. Otherwise all other operations are unaffected. You will be able to use data as normal while out and about as long as you're not on a call. As I said, you are confused.

The fact that you don't have Wi-Fi is irrelevant. Your data will still work. You just can't use data while on a call. If you chose not to update you'll just lose the ability when Sprint turns it off soon.

Also you won't get VoLTE if you don't install the update that includes it. Calling Plus is going away whether you like it or not. You can update and get VoLTE whenever it comes to your area, or you can not update and lose Calling Plus and have nothing but 1x voice calling.

I doubt Sprint is getting rid of Calling+. They actually can't really without a software update on the phone unless they also shut off wifi calling. Calling+ is literally wifi calling over LTE. Almost certainly uses the same servers. VoLTE uses them too. It's all the same backend infrastructure. The only difference is VoLTE sets up a dedicated LTE session first to run the connection over.

Read the text exactly... it says simultaneous voice and data will only be available when Volte is turned on in your area. It does not say you will not have data. Simultaneous means at the same time... ie being able to use data while on a phone call.

1st my Question was why did I get the Update when Nobody knows when VOLTE will be available in Mississippi if ever? My Bet Never, will have a different phone by then, meanwhile there is a Update that does Absolutely Nothing! 1st Sprint should have added the Service, then Released the Update!

It well be available under TMO merger for sure. C spire is the one they does the coverage there and they don't wanna even do VOLTE. They will have to as other carriers shut down 2G/3G on the future. Cspire even wants Sprint CDMA to stay up for another 5 years which isn't going to happen.

Looks like VoLTE is no where to be found in the entire state of Washington. Any ideas?

      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:

      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.

    • I definitely don't need more coverage... just the damn VoLTE activated so I can get calls and MMS at the same damn time. Like I said, it isn't a huge deal, just annoying that this is even a problem in the first place. They told me AR4 are out of stock and they have no idea when they'll be back, nor can they put me in touch with someone that knows. They said they just have to keep checking and see if it comes back in stock. Once again, I said that is nonsense, but what can I really do about it. For right now, the Pebble boosting the LTE, and using wifi calling, is working fine for my needs. Much better than the AR2.5 I was using which didn't work at all.
    • Yeah VoLTE took forever on Airave 4s, but it's definitely working now. Supposedly it was enabled months ago, but not necessarily for existing devices (only new ones). I had to factory reset mine to get it back in the queue, but after 2.5 weeks it got it. My Magic Box with wired backhaul, on the other hand, got it only 3 days after a factory reset. It seems that a lot of femtos setup before VoLTE launched never got put back in the queue (particularly femtos using WiFi or Ethernet backhaul), hence the necessary factory reset. I'm not sure if an Airave 4 would offer substantial coverage improvement over the Pebble, other than having CDMA as a fallback. If you need to cover a larger area, you can use both actually. They should handoff to one another with VoLTE, just keep them sufficiently far apart to minimize interference. And you'll probably have to tell Sprint it's for use at a different address, but they won't actually check where it's deployed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Do it quickly.  My impression is T-Mobile really wants to move people to their network ASAP, even if it causes lots of pain. August 1 is rumored to be the end of Sprint retail.
    • I'm trying to switch over to the Airave 4 now that the've enable VoLTE on them. That should fix this problem. The only reason I got the Pebble over the AR4 is because VoLTE wasn't enable on it yet.
    • My router typically only gets rebooted for firmware updates or major functionality changes that I have implemented. Otherwise stays up for years.  Last time it was down is when Hurricane Ike remnants hit Ohio in 2008 and caused week long power outages, which killed local internet in a few days (I have two ISPs, UPSes, generator).  ISP's battery backups and generator use had improved considerably since that time. Making changes appears to be the greatest reason for router instability. So put internet connections on a UPS,  reboot after major changes, and otherwise enjoy.
