So I have the TMobile version of Note 8 and I followed the OP's instructions to switch/flash to the Verizon firmware (AQI5). The Service provider now indicates: VZW/VZW/TMB, but I understand the last three cannot be changed (and doesn't matter) unless you are rooted. I am able to make and receive calls, etc. So far so good.
1). I am using a MVNO called Red Pocket and am on their CDMA (Verizon) network
2). I am not able to activate the Advanced Calling features and Wi-Fi calling - but I presume that this is because I am with Red Pocket and not with Verizon - correct?
3). Each time I reboot my phone, I see a message that says "SIM card is not from Verizon Wireless". I simply swipe to clear and ignore it. From what I can tell, this is just a nuisance message and does not affect the functionality of the phone. The question is why do I see this message? I am asking because previously I was using a Verizon branded Motorola phone that had the same Red Pocket CDMA SIM card in it, and it never showed this message. Is it because the IMEI of the phone is not "registered" with Verizon since it was originally a TMobile version?
4). Does anyone know if I will get automatic firmware updates from Verizon? I am not sure since I am using a MVNO, and not with Verizon direct
Is there a difference in firmwares for the camera? I've got an unlocked Note8 USA versino and the cameras are weak (front mainly) compared to my year old Pixel XL. Worth trying to flash the T-MO firmware to see if there's a difference? Can i go back to the unlocked USA firmware if I decide to return?
