    Sounds like they're doing "bonded calling" like Republic Wireless which is VoIP over LTE to handoff between WiFi and Cellular.

    So I bought a Galaxy J7 Perx and Calling Plus works alright; I also went into data programming and changed the priority for the LTE bands(by default 25 was first so I knocked it down to #4 after 26, 41, and 12). I haven't been fortunate enough yet to go into a 3G area to have a call drop....HOWEVER, I started a call on 3G/1x and once I hit an LTE area I obviously couldn't access data until the call ended.

    I see it is being nicknamed VolTE Lite or VolTE Beta. Basically WiFi calling is being allowed to run on Cellular LTE. You can now make a WiFi call wherever you have LTE, even without a WiFi connection.
    So the phone uses the WiFi calling function to create a pseudo-VolTE experience.

    Sprint can eventually use this to jump to true VolTE.

    Definitely a step in the right direction for Sprint.

    Have you had a chance to check out the call manager function of the phone like merging incoming calls and the conference calling like every other carrier

    I don't understand why Sprint only allows this feature on LTE. If all Calling Plus is is the ability to place a call over data, why doesn't this work on 3G, too? Data is data, right?

    At times, I get better speeds and/or a stronger signal on 3G, and it would be nice to be able to utilize Calling Plus across the entire Sprint network.

    Probably because EVDO is sketchy and cannot take advantage of low band spectrum. It wouldn't give as much of a consistent experience as VoIP over LTE.

    Not true. I'm in a major metro and see 3G about 20% of the time.

    My brother has a Boost Mobile iPhone SE and saw 3G/1X a few times in a the Minneapolis metro. They're only good in downtown.

    The only issue I had so far was two weeks ago at a hospital while on Band 26; data worked fine, but when making a phone call there was this digital raster and my voice became echoey before I had to end the call and try again.
