    Even though it was stated that this time would be different, VoLTE, 5G nor WiFi Calling work on the Unlocked Model with an AT&T SIM. I will be selling the Unlocked version or trading for an AT&T model.

    Just thought I would let everyone know.

    Thanks. That is what I suspected with AT&T and the reason I ordered the AT&T model.

    I get wifi calling and volte not working as has happened with past unlocked samsung models, but as it has the necessary bands for 5g I don't see why it wouldn't work. Interesting if true.

    Also, with the S10 they enabled wifi calling and volte with an update. It appeared as if AT&T was making progress with regards to unlocked samsung devices. It would be a shame if they are now backtracking.

    It’s crazy that AT&T is still having problems with unlocked models in 2020.

    It's working exactly like they are intending it to. Force you to buy one of their carrier variants.

    I know my unlocked Fold also didn't work with VoLTE or WiFi Calling. I had to flash the AT&T firmware and then set the IMEI in my account to the IMEI of a AT&T branded Galaxy Fold to get those to work.

    Only reason I ordered unlocked was that Samsung wasn't offering the full $700 trade in credit on the AT&T variant when preorders started unless you financed with AT&T. Now it looks like they are offering it if you pay cash or through samsung financing. I'll likely return the unlocked one for the AT&T variant if this is indeed the case.

    Same here, now this is a total bait and switch. I guess I will order the AT&T variant now and decide which one to keep.

    Interesting. Same boat. Can I return this one and go for ATT - will we get all the offers back? Guessing no since the pre-order period expired.

    I'm guessing returning just to get ATT is going to be too much hassle. Between the trade in and the galaxy watch and the extra 35 its not going to be worth it.

    Does this mean a fix may be coming?

    I don't use WiFi calling and not sure about VoLTE, but are you saying there will be no use of 5G on AT&T with an unlocked phone? Even with an AT&T unlimited plan with 5G?

    This something I can't say for sure. I know I just "pre-ordered" the AT&T variant and says it will ship tomorrow. Got the $600 trade-in credit as well as the $200 for accessories. Paid outright for the balance of $900, no stupid AT&T financing.

    As long as you didn't send a trade-in yet, you can place a new order now.

    no 5G would certainly be a problem and require a return. Can someone confirm on that point?

    I don't have a 5G plan, I'm on my work Mobile share, we have 30GB w/ Rollover Unlimited Canada and Mexico roaming, 9 lines for $265 a month. I can't justify doubling the price just for 5G.

    Okay - the original post said no 5G which was a suprise. I expected no wifi calling and/or VoLTE although I was hopeful.

    Is there confirmation from anyone it is working on a so called AT&T unit? It is a brand new model after all...you might want to check before you go to all that trouble.

    There were no options for network selection with the AT&T SIM in it, however I put in a T-Mobile SIM in and all of the above work.

    Hmm. Are you in a market where ATT offers 5G service?

    Here is an article stating that the carrier unlocked model will work on ATT 5G:

    Just got my Ultra an hour ago. Got it set up and tried to make a call while using data, and I can confirm that VoLTE is WORKING on AT&T with the unlocked model. Have not tried wifi calling as I do not use that, but it's good to know that VoLTE is working.

    How do you confirm VoLTE

    After you posted this, I went and updated my IMEI on the Premier website and by gosh, it appears VoLTE is working on the unlocked. WiFi-Calling is not, even though it provisioned on the line when I switched the IMEI. Looks like I might cancel the AT&T version order I placed an hour ago at Samsung. I don't use WiFi Calling hardly ever.
