VOLTE is in the Columbus market and working awesome on the S10 variants.

VoLTE was enabled in my area for two days and has been off ever since.

Why does the S10 get it but S9 doesn't?

Not sure but hopefully very soon, guessing they wanted to launch it on the new flagship and push some onto it as a feature.

Anyone have insight as to what is keeping the VoLTE rollout to previous devices from being more widespread. I understand that it's based on a software update to the UE, but are there network or other issues being resolved before doing so?

There's really no reason. One member here just figured out how to hack the Pixel to force VoLTE to be enabled (root required), and it works perfectly. It was literally just forcing the toggle to appear... The VoLTE implemention is standard and the software and config is already there, it just needs forced on. Sprint is just limiting the rollout, either because they feel the network isn't ready, or for other reasons.

I remember seeing something on Reddit that said it's the way Sprint's system deals with SIM cards or something like that. That's why it's not available on older devices yet.

Any device with an ISIM can be updated with an IMS profile for VoLTE.

So devices with integrated SIM can do VoLTE but devices with regular SIM cards can't yet?

I've only been using VoLTE for less than a week now but I have to say that I have no issues so far in either New York or Boston. Cal quality has been great (especially to Verizon customers using VoLTE) and there have been no blocked or dropped calls so far.

Really curious if it is Sprint or LG that is the hold up on VoLTE for the G7!

VoLTE seems to come and go as it wishes now.  

Right now, it's off.  I've restarted my phone and still nothing.

      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.
