  1. this should work on the essential phone to then, i would imagine (or maybe really any rooted phone?).
  2. my essential phone, since last weeks feb update, has been showing as native ( no R indicator) when connected to T-Mobile or USCC LTE. If voice is also roaming then the R indicator will display.
  3. My essential has done the same since last week, with feb update. honestly i could not remember if this was how it was before. Glad you confirmed this. Fwiw, it does the same on USCC roaming as well UNLESS voice / 1x is also roaming then the R will be displayed.
  4. ive been dealing with this for the last month or so and it has driven me mad. This all stopped working around Nov 1st. I had google handling my voicemail for years. Ive had it set up on the Essential phone for the last year and Nov 1st it stopped working. I noticed the same about the wifi calling thing. I really do not understand why it broke all of a sudden. I *think* call forwarding is working because a google error comes up about unable to complete your call. If I had to guess, some one deep in the bowels of sprint made a config change on something and has no idea what he broke. I begrudgingly went back to the sprint voicemail service but that also has problems that I have been unable to figure out. It seems like if i am roaming the caller does not get sent to voicemail, they get sent to dead air or a call cannot be completed message however i get notification of a voicemail and all i get is the dead air. Naturally, the sprint visual voicemail app is not available for the essential phone in the play store.
  5. tried to order the gen 3 hoping they work in maine now....no go. their qualification tool still says no go.
  6. the 3rd gen MB is the one that will work in Maine, just not with LTE backhaul correct?
  7. i like the voice band mode selection feature and to me, should be #1 on the above list of changes. testing for adding LTE band selection in the next release?
  8. does this become the airave replacement as well?
  9. i suppose with the wifi backhaul option this will finally work in places like Maine where the relay stuff was not possible?
  10. Does VoLTE even need Essential help to get working? I was under the assumption it was simply a sprint network / provisioning thing. I mean, it already supports Voice call continuity and has for awhile. Shouldnt be that big of a hurdle for full on VoLTE.
  11. T-Mobile roaming active for me, started today, in Maine. Fwiw, it wouldnt be a sprint change / enhancement if it didnt cause me some minor annoyance that I need to deal with. In this case, when connected to t-mobile lte, it seems to be running on GMT for time so the phone rolls ahead 4 hours causing issues with texting (and probably other stuff). Progress I suppose. lol EDIT- I did see some quick connections to band 12 as well.
  12. As ive been told, the IMS core will verify if a VoLTE call is allowed to complete or not. If you are in a non-VOLTE market you will just be on a call on the legacy network.
  13. ive been seeing the same lately but with USCC. I got to thinking maybe this isnt that huge of a deal though in the grand scheme of things. They have voice agreements with these networks already so maybe VoLTE falls into those agreements and we just didnt realize it?
  14. one day i hope to be blessed to see an announcement about a MB that works in Maine in some way shape or form.
