It would be only the provider's own app which would be granted the necessary access, for the purpose of facilitating WiFi calling connections.

    I didn't miss a thing. But I think you missed the part where someone from XDA cracks it in 5 minutes.

    And the difference between somebody from XDA cracking that vs. cracking what's already there is...?

    Is that so far it's so low-level and so integrated into the OS that no one's been able to crack it. But if you leave an API open for a program to talk to, that makes it a lot easier.

    All this talk made me realize that the difference between Android and iOS is open source vs closed source. If it was to be integrated into Android it would have to be open sourced. By integrating it into the T-Mobile specific devices you don't need to make it open source so it's much easier to keep locked down.

    Hope it works well for you. I am still happy with T-Mobile due to the price/unlimited data but you do need to be willing to accept that in some cases (like road trips) you may need to prepare to not have data service.

    We said phone, not child's toy. Seriously, the Avant is a very low-end device that someone used to an M8, GS5, or G3 wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.
    Phone snobs...gotta love them. My son loves his Galaxy Avant.
