    Anyone turn on advanced calling on Verizon? How's the battery life?

    I'm getting great battery life, but don't have it turned on. Apparently you need to have it turned on to use data while on a call (if you are not on WiFi). This wasn't an issue on my old S5. Bummer that they changed it on the S6.

    I have it on (came that way so it's the default setting it seems) and my battery life has been superb so far. I'm getting at least 5 hours of screen on time with a single charge.

    Mine was on by default as well. No noticeable difference in battery life with it on.

    Mine was not on by default, and I have turned it on. Battery is rock solid so far.

    I turned it on and didn't like the sound quality. My calls had a hissing to them so I turned it off again.

    If I turn it on and talk to someone that doesn't have it the sound is terrible. Very scratchy. Would love to fix the problem as it sounds great with others that have it. .

    Thanks everyone! I turned it on yesterday afternoon and doesn't look like any issues with battery drain. Used about 8% battery in 11 hours (mostly idle time).

    Ok, so I just turned off Wifi, and tried to call my daughter on her iphone. Would not let me do data (Web surf) and call, even though I have advanced calling on. WTF? Is there another setting I need to turn on? I can't believe this is happening in 2015.

    Were you calling on 4G LTE coverage?

    Don't know, I guess not. What a pain though. I don't know how often I will need to use this feature, but when I need it, I need it. This is my only disappointment with the phone. The ability to talk and surf is pretty important.

    For example, occasionally I use Cisco Webex for work. I wonder how that will work if I am in an area without wifi?

    I have it on too. Haven't had many phone calls since turning it on. Is this hissing sound a common thing?

    1. Yes it is a pain. And unfortunately, it's not just the Galaxy S6 that's dealing with it: it's all of Verizon's new phones as they attempt the transition from CDMA + LTE to LTE only. Boneheaded executives somewhere in the chain of command decided it was worth saving a few bucks and forcing everyone's hand early with all new devices on the network. On every other carrier, voice + data is still possible in any circumstance due to the incorporation of two antenna paths. On Verizon, there is but one, so V+D is only possible when in LTE coverage areas using VoLTE.

    2. Worries me reading about this hissing stuff. I do a TON of phone calls and will have to have Advanced Calling on for work. Don't have my S6 yet but I do not like what I am reading about that.

    I'm on the phone with verizon tech support right now. Advanced calling will not work on my new s6. When they tried turning it on it shut down all my calls. Been on the phone over 1 hour now! Cell stand by has been draining my battery too. anyone know why?

    I have the same hissing noise when using HD call audio. Turned it off and it disappears.

    However, using HD call audio with head phones or speaker phone has no hissing. It's just if you are using the ear speaker.

    Global will eat your battery
    Should be on cdma/lte.

    I was wondering this myself. Should I have it set to global or cdma/lte? Mine came set to global. What is the difference? I also don't like the sound quality with advanced calling on. It was off by default on mine

    I've been casually testing between global/cdma+lite and honestly I don't notice any major differences in terms of battery life between them. In theory it seems like Global would use more eat up more battery though.

    Turning on advanced calling however, seems to have a boost in battery performance.

    Wonder if there is any reputable results on it.

    Global will only eat your battery if you have no verizon service

    If you travel abroad, you will have cell phone service as most countries use gsm technology. When it is set to global the phone can pick up cdma and gsm signals with cdma having priority (verizon network is mostly based on cdma).

    In essence it allows people that arent tech savvy to get service wherever in the world without having to change settings manually

    So if I'm not going to another country I should just set it to cdma/lte?
