Tell me how well it works guys! I have had my S8 as a paperweight since new since they're still working on root and VoLTE wasn't ready. WIth VOLTE supposedly now here and root a week or so away I'm about ready to activate this beast.

Good new feature will have to try it out at some point.. Smiley Happy

I notice it adds a CallingPlus logo at the top of the screen once you have it enable. Also you can choose  to have both on or just one so I just choose to use LTE instead of Wifi. Smiley Happy

Re: Software Update: S8/S8+ - CallingPLUS now enabled!

I want to be clear that VoLTE is a specific set of features.  CallingPLUS is not VoLTE, but does have most of the same functions (specifically allowing SVD while on LTE).

 

It's pretty easy to enable and works very similarly to WiFi calling currently on the phone:

  1. On the phone, select Settings > Phone > Calling PLUS.
  2. Slide Calling PLUS to On
    1. If Calling PLUS does not display, you may need to accept the update again.  If you have received the software update and still don't see Calling PLUS, please let us know.
  3. On the Address page, scroll down to view whether Deactivate Wi-Fi Calling Services is displayed.
    1. If Deactivate Wi-Fi Calling Services is displayed: Wi-Fi Calling is already enabled.
  4. View the pre-populated address address
    1. If Country has Non-USA in the field,
      1. Select the Country dropdown and choose USA or
      2. Enter a USA address manually.
    2. If address is not shown or is incorrect, you'll want enter the address manually
    3. Address must be within the USA.
  5.  Select Save.
    1.  Your phone should validate the address required for E911 service and complete the enablement.

Another Note as well after the update once you open up your Text Message App it will notify you about the New Advance Messaging Features as well and will enable it. Smiley Happy

Re: Software Update: S8/S8+ - CallingPLUS now enabled!

I received the update this morning. Now it's requiring a verification code for enhanced messaging through the stock app. The code is never sent.
