    It was annoying yesterday, as she had a eye appointment, and I was on my way there but was delayed in traffic. Every time I (using S9 Plus with AT&T VoLTE) called her (A8 using HSPA voice) it would ring on my end a few times and go to voicemail. This usual means her phone isn't getting good reception. Once I got there I checked her phone, and it showed 2 missed calls from me (even though I called about 5 times) but she said it never ringed. So while we were there, I called her A8 from my S9 Plus, and I could see the icon on the A8 change from LTE to H (meaning there was a call) but it never showed a call coming in. Nor could the A8 place a call, until we went out side, then worked.
    So it looks like the GSM HSPA Voice is not working well in that area but VoLTE is.
    This isn't the first time that her A8 got bad HSPA reception inside stores.
    We may end up having to replace the A8 with an S9 so it can also work with VoLTE.

    So, any updates on this in the new year?

    I’m thinking about ditching my iPhone for a Note 10+ (tired of muddling through so many endless iOS 13 bugs) but I refuse to buy carrier locked/branded/tainted phones.

    I assume there is still no support for VoLTE or Wi-Fi calling on Android phones purchased factory unlocked?

    I can always jump ship to T-Mo or Verizon, but my prepaid unlimited plan is a pretty sweet deal. Has anyone had any luck getting things activated yet or still the same old story?

    Based on my boss's experience with his Note 10+, I wouldn't expect any fewer bugs than with Apple. No one can seem to make a decent phone OS these days.

    My Unlocked S9 never worked on volte or WiFi calling. Now, with the UI2/Android 10 upgrade it works on volte, but still not WiFi calling.

    I have an AT&T branded, unlocked from AT&T, LG V20 that I use on the 25GB Walmart plan.

    just today, after about 5 updates, Android wants me to turn on WiFi calling. So it appears thatI have both VoLTE and WiFi calling on a prepaid plan.

    As far as I know, it's been working for some time on branded AT&T Android phones. All iPhones work too.

    Factory unlocked/unbranded Androids are problems. Especially ones that AT&T sells a branded version of. Still nothing on my Note 10+ even after the Android 10 and One UI 2 update.

    Tech support of course says I need a new SIM card. Although I'm fairly positive it won't work, I might try that and give it to the end of my billing cycle, or maybe one more, but calling on 3G seems to be getting worse by the day and I'm ready to switch.

    HD voice did work first. WiFi calling, on my setup, did not work until yesterday with the several updates. I never got a WiFi calling icon & a message to turn it on before yesterday.

    As always, YMMV.

    I have an AT&T Note 9 and wifi calling/VOLTE used to work on the 8 GB plan. However, I upgraded to the $75 plan and it does not work anymore
