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.

Experienced my first VoLTE call in Orlando last night, and it was pretty nice.

Calls to Verizon have been consistently very clear with VoLTE and VoWiFi. The only time I experienced any issues was when I was walking outside on a college campus and the call kept trying to hand off back and forth between weak WiFi and LTE. Even then the call never dropped completely. The person on the other end said that I would go in and out occasionally.

I'm coming to NYC next weekend for a concert with some friends and I'm really looking forward to experiencing the amazing network and VoLTE for the first time. Gonna be awesome!

i only noticed today but my essential phone has VoLTE operating now.  I was in Puerto Rico and Baltimore last week so I am not sure if it got updated there to be VoLTE active or not (visiting a VOLTE active market activates the feature, would that happen?) or if someone is trolling the northern new england market and thought VoLTE would work at all reliably but...its active, at least for me.

The essential phones does not use VoLTE. It's calling plus with no QOS.

 

This was verified by a help enthusiast who downloaded and used NSG.

interesting, but no big deal I guess.  Main thing is the ability to talk and surf at the same time as needed, when away from wifi, finally.

Is there a reason for this? Are Essential Phones not VoLTE capable?

good question but also, why would they wait until now to enable this feature when calling plus has been around forever?

      Hi everybody I would figure I would start a Sprint volte launch thread. please keep the let's please keep it on topic.

      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.

    • C-band is further from becoming a reality than CBRS is right now considering there still hasn't been a decision made about if satellite operators should be able to sell it or if it should be auctioned off. And even then, it'll probably cost an arm and a leg to acquire. CBRS is shared spectrum that will likely be split up into a ton of chunks which doesn't exactly make it pristine mid-band spectrum. Sprint's advantage is that 2.5GHz not only has better propagation characteristics, but that the whole 120MHz+ is available to them virtually nationwide. The main advantage of CBRS is that it will likely be the first "global" 5G band and will be useful for roaming purposes. For that reason, I could see Sprint along with every other carrier and cable co trying to get some of it.
    • Noticeably speed improvements at the edge of B25.  Seeing double digits and not needing to drop to B26.
    • The more sub 6GHz spectrum the other carriers pick up, the less advantage Sprint has. That advantage holds a bit tighter though for anything above 2.5GHz for realistic urban full on coverage.   However, it's a long ways to get there.  CBRS is 150MHz right now, that will get split up once it goes up for auction. And it's a full 1GHz spread from 2.5GHz. Then C-Band that is being looked into like 6GHz, you are looking at similar limitations that are on existing 5GHz.  Unlicensed, low power output of 1w or 250mW. With current considerations there will be at least 850MHz for 1w output, but that is still just 1w.
