Sprint VoLTE Discussion Thread Redux

Recommended Posts

Got a text message from sprint, that I am losing calling plus and finally volte via an getting update tomorrow(14th). I am happy to hear that, Chicago has a strong lte network and it will be nice to surf my phone while being on a phone call as well.

Yeah I had to completely disable voice over LTE again as the call quality is absolutely miserable on LTE and that's here in a very mature and very well built out market (Atlanta).  Shameful.

Is that so? Well it definitely shows in their call quality rankings with rootmetrics that it doesn't most places so count yourself lucky.  To be clear volte is failing for me in areas where I have a very strong band 41 signal (pulling over 75 down). It's perplexing. What was once an extremely solid strong point for them has now become their weakest quality.

Something isn't right then. I've had no issues with VoLTE at all. One time while driving I noticed it beginning the cut out, and the network moved me to B26 (in a good coverage area) to presumably minimize tower handoffs and for there to be a lower likelihood of the call having issues. It kept me there for the duration of my call / drive, then I went back to B41 once I ended the call. Presumably that's how it's supposed to work, if the call starts having issues, then you get moved to a lower, more reliable band.

When I first got my V50 I had issues like you say where I had turned it off. But after I factory reset my phone I haven't had issues since. Could be a configuration issue with the phone itself.

I've been dropping VoLTE calls all day in Louisville. Not sure if it's the iOS update I installed this morning or if it's something merger related...

So glad the deal closed today. Maybe VoLTE will finally work for me here in Atlanta the way it is supposed to. I still can't use it inside of most buildings even with strong signal.  Ridiculous.
