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!

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).

      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.
