I read other and find some comment able to enable VoLTE but not 5G.
Some said that they have tried the older way which worked on older device but it seem don't work on Pixel 6 Pro anymore.
They assume that this is because google use their new tensor chip not the Qualcomm one.

Until now I can't find the solution for enable 5g for unlisted country. Please help me find that 😭.

**I know and can accept that rooted is required.**

What do you mean with "unlisted country"? It's your carriers choice whether or not he activates VoLTE/5G and whether or not he supports your phone, so why not talk to your carrier why they don't support the new P6?
No, google blocks 5G and volte in unsupported countries, i.e. countries where it is not officially sold, e.g. Czech Republic, Finland, Poland, Croatia etc.,

Well, the man over you just said that it works in Norway, and Google doesn't sell the Pixel 6 in Norway*. So what you say can't be true. So either the man over you is lying, or it's indeed a carrier issue and not a Google one.

*at least according to googles official Support Site listing the countries where Google sells their new phones & a quick Google search I did

These are supported countries in Europe, I mistook Finland which is supported but they currently don't sell the Pixel 6/pro there as well as Norway. If you still don't believe it google "5G not supported in countries not supported by google", that's why for earlier models you had to install special modules with root to activate

Interesting, so Google does make a differentiation between selling & supporting, that wasn't clear from the previous conversation.

I hope we find a way to get it without root all i need just VoLTE
No hope for non root option. The older device still needed to be rooted.

It's not carriers option, it definitely because of Google restricted by software. Pixel 5 do support 5G in Thailand (according to the spec sheet) but you cannot use it even though carriers let you able to. However, right after root and install module, 5G work fine. So that mean the only problem is Google software.

This is just my assumption:
I think it like all selling country will be fully supported.
For the rest, some countries are supported by somehow.
The other countries, without root, definitely NO.

So in the thread, I find that google change to use 5G modem from Samsung not Qualcomm as the older device.
Also, if I correct it is the same modem with S20 series.
So really hope there is someone able to modify that to make the Pixel 6 Pro able to use 5G without Google's stupid restrictions.

Mine is now rooted and got volte and vowifi working fine with Magisk module but cannot get 5G working. As mentioned above it is Google stopping it in their settings. We have three networks in Ireland and Google support two but not the third (who use Huawei 5G tech!). Root will be essential I'd say to add the settings for the restricted networks. So much for paying full price for an unlocked phone...
It used to be easier to change the modems mbn settings with Qualcomm but does not work with Pixel 6 modem which I hope someone more clever than me can help with!

Well maybe they do. But people travel, don't they. And depending on where they travel they might use different SIM cards. So even when I bough a Pixel in an "officially supported country" (like France), I might travel to Netherlands and use a Dutch SIM card ... then suddenly I would only get half baked support? That just does not sound right.

Well, that's how it always has been with Software features, they are locked, usually for legal reasons.

I've read so many discussions over the years from US soldiers stationed in Europe and their constant struggle to get Home Television/Sports, Google/Streaming Services and other services working, that it's not even surprising me any more to hear of this (some services offer workarounds, but ONLY if you have a US address+citizenship - so many of those soldiers had to order stuff to their families back home, had them open the packages, transcript and send them the codes they needed and then they had a solution, even though only few companies offer such a solution). It's not a Google problem, it's an industry problem of licenses and laws. I remember a discussion on reddit where a businessman flamed Google hard for disabling his Automatic Call Screening whenever he flew to a country that didn't support it - which back then equalled 98% of the planet, except the USA, lel.

In the end Google, of course, didn't - or couldn't - care and his problem was not solved.

This is the only thing that holding me back to buy flagship pixel, volte which is 10 years old technology still locked for most countries, and they make it hard to unlock them (im still having trouble enabling them on my 4 xl), and 5g, lte+ feature. Why would we pay flagship price but couldnt get this important feature. Was thinking buying oneplus until then.

Hmm ... Google and Huawei ... that does not sound like a happy marriage ;-)
But you are right, why can Google not do what all other manufacturers can.

    Thank a lot, I will try when available. Have you try it yet? Does it work well in your country?

    Yes, the phones support 5G and those features but google "geo locks" them to the countries it has a google store on. If you dont live in one of those countries then you dont get 5G/LTE+/VoLTE/VoWIFI etc..

    Also have talked to technicians in the carrier in my country as others have done and it comes down to google intentionally doing this. This is why countries where google have recently opened up a store there suddenly got these features working.

    Its quite sad not enough people are calling out google for essentially locking people from basic features in 2022.

    i think the problem lies elsewhere. i found all carriers in product/etc/carriersettings

    in the folder all in .pb files and each one of the supported carriers in listed countries have separate files even more separate profile for 5 g ( such as att_us.pb att5g_us.pb att5gsa_us.pb). while i only found my country in others.pb which contains a lot of unlisted countries but all in very short details not like the separate file. if someone with knowledge enough to create or modify these carrier files then i think it might be possible for 5g to work with the carrier

    Maybe a phone country that has mmWave deployed may work for you.

    Tell me if I am wrong but I understand that the service providers send in their vendor, and radio images, google colates them and releases them with the builds. This is not up to google rather the service provider to do this, because contained within are APN and other settings specific to the service provider.

    Read this will give you a clear understanding that this is not google blocking countries... rather service providers supporting certain makes and models of phones. https://support.google.com/pixelphone/answer/10082009?hl=en
    That is a lie from Google, try and flash the Android 12 beta 2(not 12L) firmware for ether Pixel 4a or the Pixel 5 5g and voila you got 5g in unsupported country and provider, cause they messed up and forgot to lock off the countries and providers they dont like or want to have 5g.

    I am in the proccess of finding the files and getting 5g on my Pixel 6 Pro, Google really are bad people with this.
