Sprint VoLTE Discussion Thread Redux

Recommended Posts

These were the next devices planned for VoLTE launch on Sprint. 
Yeah I'm just wondering how they turned it on. The config has to be part of the OS or can be added by installing an app signed with the same certificate that's used to sign the UICC (according to Android documentation). I didn't receive any carrier updates or anything that I'm aware of on my Pixel that would turn it on, which is why I'm curious how they did it. I'm rooted with the module to force it though, and don't particularly want to disable it to check (since it allows me to use VoLTE on my MB).

I'm wondering if enabling the toggle can be done with a profile update. And I'm also curious if the officially enabled Pixels have the same restrictions as other devices (ie, no MB usage, working only in approved markets, etc, that doesn't apply to forced devices).

my essential phone had the volte toggle in the radio menu completely disabled at some point.  not sure if it was the may update or they did it through a profile update.

The option just showed up, I am on Q Beta 3, but not rooted.  I am using eSIM.  When I go to the Radio info page it shows the VoLTE provisioned toggle on the enabled section as well...

Whoops, I missed that you're on Q. Yeah VoLTE is enabled in Q on Sprint, but not P unless you use a Magisk module.

VoLTE just popped up in a number of areas of the Carolinas according to the posts here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/boxkzp/volte_is_here/ (and my own experience in Hickory, NC).

SC: Columbia, SC, Charleston, SC.  NC: Asheville, NC Raleigh, NC, Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton, NC.  It is likely live in other areas too.

Now if only Samsung's 9/plus/note users could use it. Worked great when I had the S8. Wishing now I had gotten the pixel 3XL

My wife has an S9+ and it would be nice if her phone had it.  I will likely shut it off though because she's a teacher and her phone flips between B26 LTE and 1x/EVDO while at work and the majority of her commute.  I'm actually shocked that NC/SC are even live right now.  I wonder if this is just a test/glitch because these states are seriously hurting for coverage.  We desperately need more macro sites in both states.

      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.
