    Ok, would you mind clarifying (possibly again, sorry)?

    Did you get your unlocked phone directly from Samsung, or from Verizon, or from a 3rd party like BB?

    I'm considering an S10+, and the gripes about unlocked samsungs not working on verizon go off the charts with only a modicum of google-fu searching.

    Thanks!
    For me, I got mine directly from Samsung. No issues with the S10 series.

    Do a little searching and you'll find gripes about the Pixels, even though Verizon sells them. Some users just shouldn't have cellphones. They're not like landlines, just pick the handset up, dial the number and it works. The more the phone can do, the more you have to know what you're doing, or don't do anything but run apps (Phone is an app). People play with settings they don't understand, then complain that their phones don't work. So "1,000 posts that X phone doesn't work on Y carrier" doesn't mean anything. Very few people, like @libra89, post "my phone works".

    This is true but in my experience, sometimes carriers can be weird with certain phones.

    Before the S10 series, Verizon had some things not work without their phone model. I did my research and saw that everything works as it should, aside from video calling.

    With cricket, I have personally dealt with the issue of the Pixel phones not saving apn/MMS settings after a restart.

    That's in the SIM, so the phone should pick it up.

    Ideally, yes. It doesn't always though.

    Yep, it works great. I have used it a few times and switching between mobile and wifi is seamless in my experience.

    Guys, ........arg. On my Unlocked S10+ (from Samsung) on Verizon, it's not showing "Advanced Calling" either.

    I can find "WiFi Calling", and enable it, AND even make sure that the permissions are showing access to "phone" (and not "none"), but still no-go.

    With Airplane-Mode on, and WiFi re-enabled, I can dial, but it gives me the "enable Wifi to make a call [OK]" dialog. I press [OK] and it doesn't do anything. I go in and check, and WiFi calling is enabled and has access to phone, like I previously set up.

    Any clues? Should I call verizon? Are they gonna give me the "sorry dude" story?

    Ok, further experiments. (Unlocked S10+ from Samsung / on Verizon / trying wifi calling / no luck)

    In Phone app, (either from the phone icon, or from Settings -> Apps ->⋮ -> Show system apps....scroll down to the Phone with the settings gear) the option to turn on WiFi calling is grayed out!

    did you try calling or chatting with Verizon? it might have to be added to your account. even if you had a phone prior to your Samsung and wifi calling worked your still gonna have to call and get it added I believe..

    ....Well that's all it took (Thank you!), except that I did it in person not over the phone. I made a mini post about it here.
