It's my understanding that Cricket does NOT support those features on unlocked Androids; the Wifi Calling page says they don't support it on ANY unlocked device, but according to HoFo both features work on unlocked iPhones only. YMMV.

    Both those features work on my unlocked AT&T LG V20, but not on my unlocked Huawei Mate 9.

    I had to activate features on iphone by putting my sim card in it.

    Haven't read of anyone with Samsung phones having any luck with that trick though.

    Yes, it's an AT&T branded LG V10.

    I believe if the device was already approved to use these features on AT&T it should work on Cricket. Haven't heard any of the Samsung people having any luck though.

    Thats good thing to know that at&t approved phone might work with cricket.. Mate 10 pro is rumored to work with at&t volte due to repurposed at&t mate 10 pro devices that was already installed but lets see what other people see when it come out on the 18th..

    and also forgot to mention that Samsung galaxy s8 carrier version release a new BYOD re customization software so it is easy to switch carriers and VoLTE should be working across carriers AT&T,Tmobile, sprint and verizon.. and i believe samsung will release this kind of software to rest of galaxy devices

    Should get an update every month. You'll never get one from Cricket they don't carry the phone.

    Just sold mine and went to the Note 8. You get a security update monthly. You'll NEVER see a Cricket firmware. They are never going to carry the device, so they'll never make one. Blessing in my opinion XAA tether and come with the caller ID thing and no extra crap. Cricket isn't great, but AT&T is rugged with their bloat .

    Here is the link for the Samsung BYOD recustomization this information is directly from samsung.

    Galaxy s8 Plus will not work with BYOD recustomization software update to cricket and metropcs only the regular S8 will work maybe because these carriers do not offer S8 plus.
