    Any rumors on when VoLTE will be coming to Pixel 3?

    I think it's 3xCA, but in Northern Cali, we're stuck with 3xCA.

    Sent to Nexus 6P on Google Fi.

    Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL User Thread

    Message went through and got so did a response to one number I tested that was on Google Fi. Google Fi doesn't have the "Use data" option in the SMS app, BTW. Any other test requests?

    Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL User Thread

    I think we're talking about slightly two different things. My point is that as a user, I can get all my text, group texts and photo messages over WiFi on Pixel 3 - something that supposedly is not possible on Pixel 2 for reasons as yet unknown.

    I guess I haven't run into a case where SMS/MMS doesn't work over WiFi. Are you saying that if I try to send SMS over WiFi while recipients phone is powered off, my phone will try to switch to 1xRTT and send message over cellular?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think RCS sends all messages via RCS pipe to Sprint where they continue either as SMS or RCS depending on the recipient. If you read the description of the setting carefully, it says it'll "use data when available" - and not "use data when recipient has compatible service". Anyway, I'm happy with this config since now I get all my texts (SMS+MMS) over WiFi and also on my computer.

    Did you confirm that RCS is enabled?

    Yes. SMS and MMS both work over WiFi with Pixel 3. -Martin

    Current Sprint PRLs

    Yes, that's the only option available under "Carrier Settings". Does that perform a PRL update reducing the need for "Update PRL"?

    I don't know since I don't have either when going into the elevator, and don't trust public Wi-Fi to test elsewhere.

    YES!!! It used to be that only SMS would work, so you'd miss Group SMS and MMS until went back on cellular. I can confirm that both work AND both show up on the web https://messages.android.com/.

    Current Sprint PRLs

    Pixel 3 XL no longer has "Update PRL" option under Carrier Settings. Is that something new with latest phones/SIMs?

    11/9 Coverage Map Update

    Well, all I can say is WOW!! This something that I've been waiting for for many years!
  15. Pixel 3 XL supports CAT 16 - which is just a collection of the following: 5x DL CA 4x4 MIMO LAA 256-QAM DL 64-QAM UL But I think Sprint only does 3x DL CA + 4x4 MIMO + 256 QAM DL, right? What's the peak for that combo?
