    guys I have new info about AT&T 3G shutdown and VoLTE I was able to chat with cricket wireless support and this is what they told me. Yes, they will be shutting down 3G as well on early 2022. and told me they will stop activating phones that doesn't support VoLTE on their network before 2022. They didn't mention anything about how they will implement VoLTE on BYOD devices but they said that they are currently working to add more devices to get VoLTE on their network. It seems that AT&T is really working hard to have VoLTE on all devices their customers have or else millions of customers will not able to talk in few years or next year. I believe once 5G will start rolling out they will start shutting down 3G because they will use 850Mhz Band 5 spectrum as 5G sub-6Ghz for coverage, Band 5 is at&t's most 3G frequency they are using now. here are some of the screenshots i took of our conversation.

    I hope I soon hear of someone from the New England area (with an Android) report getting VoLTE.

    My unlock phones dropped to HSPA+ whenever making voice calls otherwise I am getting LTE on data. This has been an issue as I don't receive/make voice calls in my office building in Rhoda Island. Last week, I had to use wife's Huawei Elate phone and in my office, the phone was ringing off the hook. Immediately I noticed the phone stayed on LTE during the voice calls.

    I then switched SIM and my unlock phones all stayed on LTE when using wife's SIM card. On the other hand, her phone swithed to HSPA+ using my SIM card.

    I chatted with online support to "enable VoLTE" on my line. Of course, he couldn't do. I asked him to swap IMEI on my 2 lines which he did. After restarting, my line is now on LTE during voice calls. I swapped the phones again and using my SIM on my unlock phone. A day later, Cricket updated the phones registration and it is correctly showing the wife and my respective phones on-line. Except both my wife Huawei Elate and my Moto Z2 Force unlocked phones are both on VoLTE now.

    To get VoLte, use a Cricket branded VoLTE supported phone and insert your SIM and keep it long enough so the Cricket system is updated.

    Just got a new Google Pixel 3A.

    Put my old sim card (which I got when I switched to AT&T prepaid back in 2015) into the 3A and VOLTE and HD-VOICE was enabled. Didn't have to call AT&T to add the features to my line.

    WIFI-Calling is also working too. Turned it on confirmed my E911 address and then it said WIFI calling wasn't available at this time. So I restarted the phone and checked the WIFI-Calling setting again and it was on. Made a test call (See Picture Below) and it shows that the call was being made over WIFI and HD-Voice was enabled. Although on the Pixel 3A there doesn't appear to be a way to change the Preferred calling network from Mobile Preferred to WIFI Preferred. I did find if you put the phone in airplane mode and then turn on the phones WIFI it forces WIFI calling.

    I thought I post this because my Pixel 3A is the unlocked one from the Google Store and because most people with unlocked android phones haven't had much luck getting these features enabled. Maybe some progress is being made?

    I think the latest Pixel phones were known to be an exception vs the normal unlocked Android phones. So this is probably expected, though nice to be confirmed for a new model.
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    Thanks, user34. Now I can open my 3a that arrived a few hours ago. This is the first report of prepaid wifi calling working, so, even though I'm happy to have another Google device, I wasn't going to keep it without wifi calling. (I have a 9 wk old MOTO Z3 Play with the hardware but no love from AT&T.)

    I'm visiting Nebraska. On US34 west of Lincoln. Not all that far from Lincoln (the state capital), not only didn't I have VoLTE. I didn't have service period

    Likely there would have been service on I-80, not that far to the south. Once I got out of range of whatever service ATT provides for Seward, it went away until I got to Lincoln service. The RP iPhone I also had (Verizon) had excellent bars.

    It took four tries (kept saying wifi calling not available), but it works! I haven't actually tried it (or VoLTE, yet) as the other possible VoLTE device is sequestered in a "still sleeping" room.

    Well I have some good news! I have 2 different phones now and activated them on AT&T prepaid and here is my experience with my old and now 2 new phones:

    I had a Pixel 2 XL and unfortunately on both Cricket and AT&T Prepaid VoLTE and WiFi calling does not show up and does not provision either so the Pixel 2 XL is a no go.

    Now I just got a Pixel 3a XL and activated it but tried to switch the imei online but it kept saying "There are system issues at this time try again later" so I could not switch the imei online but instead just swapped the sim card from the iPhone XR to the Pixel 3a XL and Bam, VoLTE and WiFi calling do work! A note on WiFi calling on Pixel 3a XL, It is set by default to "Mobile preferred" without an option to switch that.

    This is a surprise but I also just bought a Moto G7 Power and activated it on AT&T prepaid but as a secondary device and at first I did not see "Enhanced 4G LTE" as a option under settings, mobile network's. However I did see "Registered" under IMS Status in the "about section". Anyways after seeing that I made a test call and I can confirm that VoLTE is activated on the Moto G7 Power. Also to note WiFi calling does not work on the G7 Power and is actually grayed out in the diagnostic menu.
    Home Entertainment: Xfinity Double Play with 140+ channels and 100 Megs per second internet.

    Landline: Google Voice

    Mobile Entertainment: AT&T Prepaid as primary, Three UK sim as secondary.

    I'm a little confused. I have a pixel 3a and just signed up for att prepaid on the double data promo (from mint). I came from iphone so the settings are not intuitive for me.

    how do I verify wifi calling and volte? Do I need to trick it by using an iphone imei#? What if I don't have one?

    Thanks

    while on a call, the phone should stay on LTE = VoLTE is working. if it drops to H+ or HSPA then VoLTE is not working. you can try dialing *#*#4636#*#* a secret menu should show select phone information and scroll down a ways and you should see some provisioning switches for VoLTE - WIFI Calling ect.

    For wifi calling on 3a, just go to Network/Internet>mobile network>advanced>calling and tick on wifi calling. It has taken me as many as 10 tries (tick on/off/on) to get it to work so persistence may pay off. You still will get the emergency verification screen then all should work. There's a screenshot on post #415.

    Under this secret menu I have data network and voice network as LTE.
    (My signal is - 100 which is probably not good, but that’s another thread)

    Further down, I have prefererred network type:
    LTE/CDMA/UMTS auto (PRL)
    And also VOLTE PROVISIONSED ans WIFI CALLING PROVISIONED bother sliders are to the right (active) and greyed out.

    Under my APN it defaulted to
    ATT Nextgenphone.

    My other choice is ATT WAP (wap.cingular)



    I have tried repeatedly but can’t get wifi calling.
    I have it making calls thru google voice so i cant tell what my regular calls are. Guess I’ll have to disable that.

    If I use another iphone that is tied to sprint, could I enter that in my att imei settings without messing up that sprint account?
