In italy, with pixel 6 pro from German Google store 5g works perfectly

According to [ https://support.google.com/pixelphone/answer/10082009?hl=en ], Italy is in the listed country (which is not what we mentioned here; we only consider the countries which are not on the drop down list [aka. the unlisted countries]). This is why your Google pixel 6 pro works fine in Italy.

Try and select Denmark, the information there is not currect, i live in our capitol Copenhagen, this phone cannot catch 5g cause the sub-6 is not used, mmWave is.

You know you can get Volte on Plus network in Poland, right? There is Volte magisk module that enable that. And Vowifi too
How nice, needing root for something the phone should do out of the box.
Google not even kind enough to activate that for you? 899USD or 1250USD as i payed for mine and all i get is 4g, not 4g+ or Volte or Vowfi.
I payed a premium for a wish phone at best.

I would love to get what i payed for, a 5g phone but hey maybe next pixel?

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.**

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
This does not show supported countries, rather countries where google has stores

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.

Do you have a source for this allegation? Please be careful about the accusations you make.

The only difference that I'm aware of with region updates is the baseband images, which are optimized for various regions. There are some "flavors" of Pixel devices that are not mmWave capable, and there are some regions where mmWave is not used or permitted.

I've yet to see anyone properly identify or modify the carrier policy files for this phone.

And for people used to qualcomm's NVRAM items, there's not much to work with on this phone.

Do you work for Google? are you a lawver? why should i be carefull about this? if an old Android 12 beta image is unrestricted in 5g and such with unlisted countries and carriers then it means what they say is a lie? you could investigate it futher or just delete my post saying Google is lying? dont really matter to me, just stating my observations and talked to my carrier, and it seems Google is ignoring TDC - 3 - Telia and Telenor in my country about 5g support from Google as they have all already sent in the info needed for they networks, it is know in Denmark that Google phones cant get 5g LTE+ VoLTE VoWifi connection on any carriers, which is why when people try and sell they devices the people wanting to buy want 50% discount as there is only 4g not anything above or Voice 4g etc.
What were you trying for now? Because I tried some modifications using my Magisk module but I failed. Feel free to PM me so we can discuss and join forces :)
Android 12 Beta 2 not L but the old one, has working 5g carrier configs, the only problem is that i cannot seem to get efs explore working with my phone or the ShannonDM as i think this phone(Pixel 6 Pro) need new tools for it, maybe they moved it somewhere i dont know where it is a folder now? anyway still investigating.

Last I checked, it's very difficult to even enable the modem and serial ports on this phone.

And when you do, Shannon DM and air screen still do not work when connected to the phone. Shannon in particular is too old to read 5g events when you try to feed a log file from this phone.

This phone is a black hole for those diag ports.

That being said, there was a new network signal guru release (4.0.4) yesterday that included an updated hiagent that may help us. I doubt it though. It does include crude band locking for the phone though, which is a surprising first step.

First, no reason to be hostile. 2nd, keep your comments respectful.

It's one thing to express your opinion on a matter, or to suggest the possibility of something given what evidence you might have to support your theory. It's another entirely to blindly level accusations at a company. I don't care what the outcome is - this forum exists to share information, and none of us moderators have any particular interest in any particular company, but please just make sure you're getting your facts straight. Personal experiences can differ and may not reflect the reality.

The question in my mind is why would Google have any interest in restricting functionality in a region where it's used? Generally the circumstance where this is the case is when they are either required to by law, or asked by carriers. With the exception of Fi, Google has little interest in carrier technologies; they are simply trying to market a Google-branded device for international markets. As a former network technician I can tell you that it's often carrier issues that prevent certain devices from using certain functionality on their networks. If I remember correctly, there were some US carriers that wanted to prevent LTE function on devices they didn't explicitly approve.

To make this simple, the way I look at matters like this is thus: The most likely explanation for an issue is generally the simplest. Why would Google or any other manufacturer lie unless it was in their own interest? How could dishonesty in this context possibly be in their interest?

Perhaps the functionality in question is something still in development and simply isn't supported yet. Doesn't mean they're lying.

if LTE+/5G/volte are features that are "still in development" in the year 2022 for google pixel devices, its no wonder theyre not popular devices.

    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

    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.,
