Since you know more than anyone on here Bud, you think the S9/ note 9 will get it at some point or do S9 users have to wait for TMO!

They will get it post nationwide VoLTE launch in the coming weeks.

That was my point. The S9 is not at all an "old" phone, especially when it's predecessor has it. Lol.

The S8 was one of the Volte test devices that engineers were running around with for more than a year before the soft launch.

The S9 were released a half a year before the soft launch and was not. Therefore it's considered an older device that predates volte while devices that came out after (2019) are considered newer devices which have volte Enabled out the box.

I wonder what's so inherently different between the two that it can't be enabled (yet? At all?) On the S9. Interesting.

Almost certainly nothing. Other than the hack Sprint is using to restrict VoLTE access on sites/markets. They probably didn't want to pay Samsung to implement it, when they thought it would be launched by now. So they just hold the update until they want to launch it.

My S10 started lighting up the VOLTE indicator in Kailua Hawaii today. Signal strength was noticeably improved (I work in the back of the building in a windowless office with usually no signal).

As I have stated over and over , devices with no volte current that was launched pre volte soft launch last fall will get it in a software release once the national launch occurs.

They haven't announced anything about a national VoLTE launch yet.

No. The VoLTE enabled flag still exists and is used on the network.

Any truth to VoLTE on the iPhone 6S?

 

Not sure if it's true for the 7 and below iPhone devices. I am on Google fi with a Pixel 2 XL, I just force switch to the Sprint network just now. I'm in NY, rn in Westchester county market and before I would not have been able to make a voice over LTE call. Just called 611 and that worked ran speed test and everything speed test and everything. So there is that... Thanks for post otherwise I would not have checked. Pixel 2 xl was not a device supported for volte on Sprint before.

Question:  If you have a phone on Sprint that VoLTE enabled, and you call another Sprint person and the call is in HD, does that mean that person also has VoLTE enabled (since the call was in HD)?

HD calling with Sprint has been around before VoLTE so my guess would be just that it is another Sprint user. Also can make HD calls with Verizon.

Possibly. They could also be on wifi calling or be using Calling+. These both use the same codecs and system as VoLTE.

Calls to 1xAdvanced (CDMA HD voice) won't cause one of the HD codecs to be used on VoLTE, so that can be ruled it.

I don't know if this is unique to the Android 10 beta for the S10 or not but recently HD voice kicks in when I call someone else and not when they call me. It's really weird. I've only been able to confirm this behavior with my mom on Verizon for now.

Just got the first Beta Android 10 update on my unlocked S9, and there is now a VOLTE toggle on it. Hopefully this will survive the beta process.

Great.   Did you look at the ##DATA# menu and see any new aggregation options?   Especially 25+41

Not sure where in the data menu tp look. Right now my phone won't connect in VOLTE mode and the data menu shows VOLTE disabled. I don't know if my location doesn't provide VOLTE yet or if Sprint has to enable my account for VOLTE or what.

      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.

    • All Good Valid Questions.  If I remember correctly, I think T-Mobile has to assist with financing should Shentel want to buy out T-Mobiles assets.  If my memory is good on that point, it might make a difference. T-Mobile surely has their hands full of issues in the country.  If I were in their shoes, I would be very happy to have Shentel upgrade and manage all assets in the current Shentel area.  Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. They built a network that was better then Sprint was elsewhere.  There is no question that Shentel would do a much better job combining the networks than T-Mobile would.    T-Mobile really needs Shentel to continue their good work. I hope T-Mobile  realizes that. T-Mobile's network in most of the Shentel territory is not good. Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. Shentel could easily combine them efficiently and have a superior network to anybody else.
    • So does anyone have experienced band 71 that's basically unusable and band 12 unusable? I've had no luck with either one in month's.  I'm in the Denver area. Just wondering if it's just my area or nation wide.  
    • According to that link, the OnePlus 8 supports 5G SA, but it didn't specify the software version required. How would I know if I was connected to 5G SA?
    • https://www.shentel.com/news/2020/july/20q2 earnings release Some notes on this possible acquisition. So the 90-days after the Sprint/TMobile merger is up.  TMobile and Shentel did not negotiate a new agreement where Shentel would continue as a TMobile affiliate. T-Mobile has a period of 60 days to purchase the assets of the Shentel's wireless operations at 90% EBV.  This period ends August 31th.  If T-Mobile does not purchase Shentel's wireless assets, Shentel has 60 days to purchase T-Mobile's legacy network and subscribers in Shentel's service area.  If after these 60 days Shentel does not purchase out T-Mobile then T-Mobile must sell or decommission it's network and customers in Shentel's service area.   Now, questions I have: 1.) Would there be reason for T-Mobile to not have purchased Shentel's wireless business out August 1st or the 3rd? Would they wanna wait until the 30th? Since there is no news on T-Mobile making their move is it a higher chance that Shentel's wireless survives this merger? 2.) If Shentel makes it past the 30th, do they have the capital to purchase TMobile's assets and customers? 3.) If Shentel buys T-Mobile out or T-Mobile exists the service area, in both these cases does Shentel get the rights to all of T-Mobile's spectrum portfolio? Only the Sprint spectrum? What about the 800MHz they utilize does that still go to Dish? 4.) What if Shentel expands?  I know they made an agreement with Sprint a while back that gave them the option to expand deep into Eastern KY (possibly via an Appalachian Wireless acquisition maybe?).  If Shentel expands into new service areas will that force T-Mobile out?
