    Post e-SIM/Dual SIM Feature Upgrade Available/Included In OTA March Security Patch Update For SM-N986U Users!!

    Correct. eSIM support is carrier dependent as well as device brand/model. The carrier support must come first then the carrier's devices will eventually get eSIM support. Verizon has a few devices that supports eSIM however most of their phones don't offer eSIM. However, Spectrum Mobile (uses...

    Post How get back your carrier services if you changed your CSC code.

    Follow THIS thread. I'm actually going to flash back the the T-Mobile carrier firmware. If you're currently on the unlocked U1 firmware and want to switch to the carrier U firmware, factory reset your phone then power the phone off and remove the SIM card. Leave the SIM card out when flashing...

    Post Can someone unlock my Note 10+?

    There's absolutely NO possible way to perpetrate "theft of service" with a wireless carrier so don't go there. It's very simple. If you don't pay your bill what happens? They disconnect your service until you pay your bill. Therefore they don't allow people to steal service from them...

    IT_Architect Native call recording on Samsung phones was removed a while back as far as I know. A few devices back, such as the Note 4, it could be enabled by editing the CSC. This would enable the call recording button on the dialer but it replaced the call waiting/3-way call button. So today...

    Post Official OTA Update Pie [N960USQU1CSAA] [SM-N960U U.S. Carriers] [2/1/2019]

    Since T-Mobile took their time releasing Pie, the new TMB OTA has a different revision than the CSAA build. This means the T-Mobile OTA expects your phone to be on the previous RL1 firmware or it will fail. Exactly.

    Correct. This is the U.S. carrier firmware, not the Unlocked non-carrier firmware. I thought I made this clear in the OP. Samsung removed this feature for some reason. I liked this feature too. Samsung seems to have taken a few steps backwards with the release of One UI.
