    How long ago did you try? Im on at&t, and my unlocked Pixel 3 works with wifi calling since I purchased last thanksgiving, and a couple months ago my unlocked Essential Phone started working with wifi calling too.
    Yeah on my pixel 3xl it works but when I was on unlocked note 9 firmware wouldn't work

    I am on tmobile I did the same. Was only getting 300 for trading in my note 9. So canceled got unlocked aura blue. 491 total.
    So, thanks to this chat, I cancelled my Verizon carrier preorder, and bought the unlocked model (for that $600 trade-in). First time ever using an unlocked model. Hopefully I won't notice any difference in use.

    Wouldn't the video calling work with Verizon messages?

    Do you know if Samsung's find my mobile will work on Verizon? Verizon blocked install on Verizon S10 plus. I know I can use Google find my device but find my mobile has more features.
    Wow never realized find my mobile didn't work on the Verizon S10+. Always assumed I had it, but now see that I don't. Probably should go unlocked as well.

    I have an unlocked S8 that I'm using on Verizon. In order to get the Samsung find my mobile option to work, you'll need to contact Verizon directly and they can activate on their end. Also Wi-Fi calling doesn't work on my phone and while I get the monthly security updates, it isn't until after all the other carriers have updated for that particular month. Currently on the July update.

    Also, Verizon phones are unlocked as well (now after 60 days of activation/purchase). So, I think the only difference between the unlocked and Verizon versions would be the Verizon aps that are pre-installed.

    Don't get me wrong, the Google Version, Find My Device works well and I believes it location services is more accurate. The issue is that Google has a handful of features where Samsung has two handfuls.

    Maybe the Wifi calling is a limitation on the S8. I've had people reporting that WIFI calling works currently on the S10.

    I can't use wifi calling on an unlocked note with AT&T.

    I wonder if it's a restriction on devices that they offer on their Network? People are saying they can use the feature with Pixel and Essential devices. But seems like Samsung and devices are blocked since they already offer them. 🤷*♂️

    It depends on the carrier. I've heard that AT&T doesn't support it. I don't know for sure if it's true...... just what I've read.

    That's S8, things have changed quite a bit. With S10 official US unlocked many Verizon features like wifi calling, VoLTE etc all work fine with the unlocked model. The reason people at least I buy unlocked is not to have carrier bloat/firmware. SIM unlock is no big deal as any phone can be easily sim unlocked even if it's locked to begin with.

    That's correct things changed from the S10 series for US unlocked model in terms of Verizon features working on it.

    Yeah it depends on carriers on what carrier feature work on the unlocked model. AT&T is the worst carrier in terms of compatibility. But things can change any time, for example starting with S10 series things improved on Verizon compatibility and lots of Verizon specific features started working on the unlocked model.

    Last I recall on AT&T, you can't use WiFi calling with an unlocked device. It sucks, and that's how they get you. I need to have WiFi calling. Or else, I would be sitting here happy with a pre-ordered Note10+ 512GB in Blue. And I think the HotSpot also, I've never needed a hotspot from my phones, so I am not sure if that's still an issue too.
    As msm0511 mentioned, you can flash to AT&T firmware and get everything, just like AT&T version.

    I am also with AT&T and I ordered a blue N10+ unlocked version.

    I was not aware that's a possibility. In either case, I wanted the 512 10+, and it seems like its only currently available in Black, carrier and unlocked, so I'll just keep my order. I dont want to go through the hassle with BestBuy or AT&T. My Note8 is AT&T branded, and been a good experience over the last 2 years, compared to the first year with my S7E.

    It is different for carriers, but if the unlocked 10+ has it you should be fine

    Couple of questions:
    How long will it typically take to get the first file to Flash the AT&T crapware? I just cancelled my AT&T N10+ model and ordered the Unlocked version (after I read 100's of posts on flashing). I get such poor service at my home, I'm hoping that the modem in the Note 10+ works that much better than my N9 so I won't have to flash. AT&T always tries to keep such a short leash on you. Money, money, money.

    I also have a T-Mo SIM in an iPhone XR. Can I move the SIM back and forth between the XR and the N10+ without issue? I ask because I was trying to unlock my N9, moved the T-Mo SIM to the N9 where I needed to enter my SIM Unlock code and then when I eventually put the T-Mo SIM back into the iPhone, It was like it needed activation all over again! What a PIA! I had to call T-MO to get it working again. Does this sound like something that should be happening? Maybe I screwed something up somewhere?

    Thanks!!!

    You should disable iMessage and FaceTime before removing the SIM if you are moving it to Android.

    Ok, so I have a Note 8 through Verizon and want to save money of course. So, can I get the Note 10+ unlocked sent to my house and just put in my own sim card and save activation fees? Also, it says you have to activate today to get it for $999, otherwise it's $1,099 if you activate later....how do you get by with it for $999 minus the $300 or so for the trade-in without activating it? I was confused. Also, is it better to get it on the 24 months interest free through Best Buy's credit card?

    Here's a pic of my order to show the discount.
    How do you get by without paying the activation fee and through what carrier do you have? Thanks.

    I'm trying to avoid that fee with AT$T by ordering through Samsung.com & just putting in my Old Note 9 SIM.
