    Bought a Mint Note 4 - SM-910W8 unlocked Bell

    It has Android 6.0.1 and the updates on the phone seem to have stopped around mid-2016.

    Does anyone know if Bell updated the phone for VoLTE ? (The T-Mobile variant, with the same bands, had VoLTE shortly after release.)

    It would be nice to be able to continue to use the phone after all the 2G and 3G networks get shut off.

    (It's probably the best phone made with a replaceable battery, and non-replaceable battery phones have a limited life due to the battery dying after 2-3 years.)

    Thanks for any help on this or on Bell firmware updates for Android phones.

    I think S6 is the earliest Samsung model to support VoLTE for Bell.
    Want to learn more about how LTE works?

    I had a Note 4 on TELUS, but no support for VoLTE or Wi-Fi Calling. It's the same thing with Bell. These are the Samsung phones that Bell supports for VoLTE:

    Compatible devices

    • Galaxy S6 and all newer models

    • Galaxy Note8 and all newer models

    • Galaxy Xcover 4

    • Galaxy A5 (2017), A8, A20, A50, A70

    • Galaxy J3, J3 Prime, J3 (2018)

    Sent from my SM-G960W using HoFo mobile app
    TELUS: Unlimited Canada Talk & Text, 15+10 GB Data
    Koodo: Unlimited Canada Talk, World Text, 8+9 GB Data
    AT&T: Unlimited talk & text in and between the U.S., Canada, & Mexico, 8+17 GB data

    Yes! Right here: https://support.bell.ca/mobility/sma...rating-systems

    The last time my Note 4 got an update was December 2016.
