    My suggestion is to try it without WiFi calling enabled on the account for a few calls and see if you experience better quality.

    Also for HD voice to work, both Sprint devices have to disable WiFi calling. Wonky I know, but like they say "Works for me" hahahahaha.
    Does that apply if the other sprint phone is a MNVO (like say Project FI when its on Sprint)?

    BYOFD = Bring Your Own Foreign Device
    BYOSD = Bring Your Own Sprint Device

    BYOSD is for MVNO use of Sprint devices (FreedomPop, etc). BYOFD is for this deal.

    These accounts should be valid for the 50 day rule, once you swap in a Sprint phone after activating.

    My understanding is that all Fi calls are circuit switched unless started over Wi-Fi, in which case they are circuit switched to SIP using Google's Voice backend.

    Fi is different from other MVNOs. A plain MVNO probably uses Sprint's HD CDMA codecs. FreedomPop uses a all VoIP backend to a CSD terminator on their side, unless you are using FreedomPop premium voice, which allows outbound calls to go out via CDMA (and then I guess CDMA HD codecs).

    Your good with the unlocked nexus 6. I'm not sure about the limit but you can do multiple lines. I plan on porting 4 tomorrow. About unlocking a sprint iPhone in would depend on if the previous owner as fully paid it or or not. You can buy sim cards on eBay. I found some for $3 each. It's where I bought mine. Sprint has different SIM cards for different phones so you'll have to look up with one for the nexus 6 and Iphone you plan on using.

    I'm using a Nexus 6 on the free plan right now. Mine is Verizon branded, but there the Google-issued ones have been confirmed to work just fine.

    So between those two, that means all US-sold Nexus 6 units will work on the Sprint plan.

    P.S. The AT&T-sold Nexus 6 may need to be subsidy/SIM unlocked, but should work fine after that too.

    Since Google FI supports VoLTE on T-mobile, I'm guessing that circuit switched calls on FI Sprint support the hd codec.

    Cricket is supporting VoLTE? I'm guessing that doesn't include unlocked phones like the Nexus 6p or the Pixel XL.

    From what I understand they are adding devices slowly with just a few so far.

    Any phone that's on their list. As long as it's unlocked.

    Cricket supporting late? At least not on my Nexus 6 and iPhone 6s plus. BTW can I move 2 lines first and then move another 3 lines? Or do I need to move all the lines at the same time? Thanks

    Yes cricket has VoLTE its only on iPhones and the majority of att branded phones though.

    You can move more lines whenever your ready. You only need to port one to start.
