    [PSA] Sprint Soft Launches VoLTE

    I was nearby Lookout mountain and around the highways around Golden and got VoLTE as long as I got a decent signal.

    That makes perfect sense! Thanks for chiming in and adding value to the thread!

    [PSA] Sprint Soft Launches VoLTE

    No timeline given but they're working diligently on it. This is a total guess is soon. When I asked him about the S8 then it was about a month later the soft launch occurred. This it total speculation but I'm guessing the S8 was the biggest hurdle to jump over and now bringing on additional devices is a bit simpler maybe? This is pure speculation and guessing from my end. He had to help during his vacation time to get the initial VoLTE deployed so they're working hard. A lot of it is they're doing simultaneous things while deploying VoLTE so a lot of moving parts to coordinate.

    [PSA] Sprint Soft Launches VoLTE

    I'm in Denver (Longmont Hampton Inn) area and woke up this morning (10/12) to have my VoLTE on my S8. I'm not sure if it is only the site serving this area because I've not roamed outside of my hotel room yet but wanted to alert fellow Denver market members on here!

    I also was told from my contact that VoLTE will be available for the S9 series next! Woohoo!

    [PSA] Sprint Soft Launches VoLTE

    I heard from my contact that VoLTE will work with unlocked S8 so I'm assuming the S8+ is in the same boat but it will become "live" with the release Android Pie release and upgrade. No timeline given but at least something to nibble on in the meantime!
  7. You're welcome!! I told him the same thing about getting denied and then I tried the age old wait and see approach and in this rare instance it worked!
  8. Hey RedSpark, I will say that it took several minutes after I just did the S8 update for VoLTE to kick in. I initially tried to toggle it but he said that post update the SIM has to update with Sprint then it worked but he did not give me a time. As I just went to my kitchen to grab an orange juice and play with the kiddo for a few minutes then I came back (estimating around 15 min) and then tried to toggle it again and woolah it worked. I know this is not really answering your question but giving feedback about my experience and it might be a few minutes and try again type thing. But I will ask him and see if Bethesda is included in it. He did use the word "intense" and mentioned there were several delays so I am not surprised if the initial "soft launch" markets were modified (shrunk?) last minute too. But I will toss the question at him.
  9. From the two initial two calls I made the receiving recipients didn't complain about voice quality and I personally asked them if it was better and I got the comment of "night and day" out of one of them. Just my $0.02 into the conversation!
  10. Hey everyone! I got confirmation from my contact that VoLTE is live. Therefore I did the update it is up and running in the KC area now on my S8.
  11. Heck yeah! I can confirm I got the Galaxy S8 Sprint calling plus warning me to delay the update should I want to continue to use the calling plus feature.

    Sprint to Begin VoLTE Soft Launch in September

    Yeah that was the general idea that I was given by my source as well. Just the second testing phase was pushed back a month so it will delay and S8 devices were the first compatible phones they were going to try first is the impression I got from our brief conversation. I appreciate your confirmation and info though!

    That I do not know since his wheelhouse is Samsung only so the short answer is I don't know and I doubt he knows either but I can toss the question out to him but it will be a bit before I get a reply.

    Sprint to Begin VoLTE Soft Launch in September

    I have heard from a very reliable source that Samsung devices are first to be on the VoLTE testing bandwagon and there are three phases before it reaches testing out in the wild. Sprint is on phase 1 and the next one has been delayed approximately a month and needs to be done before they are asking for volunteers for their devices to be put onto the VoLTE list. He also mentioned the S8 devices are the first ones on the list. Fingers crossed!
  15. I experienced this when I was traveling on I-29 from Omaha to KC area around middle of November. It said Sprint on my Moto X Pure the whole entire way down on my signal Check Pro and I got at least EV-DO the whole entire way except for a few pockets which was nice so I could get streaming radio on my drive home! Although I suspected it was roaming on USCC now I know for sure! This is some awesome progress that Sprint is making in terms of expanding its network (via partners or internally).
