Just got my note 10+ and I'm absolutely loving the phone, but the service on the unlocked phone isn't to good. First off when i make a phone call it doesn't stick to LTE it goes to H+. When i hang up the phone it takes forever to switch back to LTE. What's the issue? Maybe because I transferred my data from my note 9?

Wifi calling works. I have really never used visual voicemail. Volte is the biggest issue for me. Video calling doesn't work since it doesn't have the t mobile firmwire on it. I will give it 24 hours for the SIM card to be fully configured if not, I will be flashing the tmobile firmwire

It wasn't. I transferred everything from my note 9, made some configurations then inserted my sim

Did you get a configuration message? If not, ask TMobile to send one?

I have the unlocked version on T-mobile also. I got the config message, it rebooted. WiFi calling does not work (test with airplane mode on then toggle wifi back on with wifi calling enabled). There is not VoLTE on the unlocked model.

I'm using the unlocked model on T-Mo. WiFi calling and VoLTE work fine.

Only thing I noticed was the data speed seems slower. I have two lines, so I tested them side by side
I had my Note 9 (running T-Mo firmware) in one hand, and my Unlocked Note 10+ running the factory unbranded firmware in the other hand. The Note 9 was pulling 80 Mbps and the Note 10+ was pulling 60 Mbps.

Easiest way is to install t-mobile firmware on unlocked version to enjoy all the benefits along with faster carrier updates https://www.sammobile.com/sams...ote...ware/SM-N975U/

I factory reset my phone and everything seems to work fine. VoLte and wificalling both work. I have noticed the speed test on my tmobile branded note 9 was higher. I wonder if I flash the tmobile firmwire if i would get better service
