Has anyone successfully been able to get their BYOD registered with AT&T that supports VoLTE. I spent a whole 2 hours with Tech. Support, looks like they do not have ability or access to "whitelist" the IMEI. This is really frustrating my phone is a third party with full support for VoLTE, i am like a 15 years customer with AT&T, I can understand the initial rollout to restrict approved devices (of course iPhone 6 and above works regardless of how it was purchased). I am getting LTE fine, which of course requires you to use a SIM/device so it can provision the LTE properly.
Was just curious if anyone here had success with registering a BYOD. If they did what was the process.

Also, the device is a Xiaomi and I have verified VoLTE/WiFI calling works with a T-Mobile SIM. Really do not want to leave AT&T but if they play this kinda of game, seriously considering leaving them as T-Mobile has improved the coverage in my area.
There's this misconseption going around that only branded devices and iPhones get VoLTE, when the reality is, AT&T requires a device to be certified for their network to use VoLTE (and other IMS services).
I believe the Axon 7 was recently white-listed/certified, hence why it may of just started working.
That is what I understood it to be from the CSR, that "whitelisting" is essentially their certification. So how does one go about at least requesting the certification?
Ironically I had a Nexus 6 which they did sell, and still couldn't get volte. Wish they were more open like all the other carriers, that was my main reason buying a Galaxy S7 was to take advantage of WiFi calling and volte

Unlocked Moto phones (G4, G5, X Pure, Z) are certified to work on ATT with VoLTE. And on TMo or VZW.
It's the handset group of AT&T being knuckleheads towards the network group that is trying to get rid of HSPA traffic for the LTE Refarm and we are stuck in the middle.
I for one will never ever buy a carrier branded handset again.
