Thanks swanjang, very straightforward(y)

I assume the phone does not have to be rooted for this?
Can similar approach be used to enable VoLTE & VoWIFI for un-supported carriers?

@swangjang I will attach all files from the policyman folder that I have from the March update, it includes carrierpolicy.xml
I think the March update changed how 'unlisted countries' sim cards load mbn. Your carrier is Verizon, right? therefore it will load the Verizon specific mbn which is why you have the carrier policy xml. But my carrier is not 'officially supported' therefore from March update, it loads the mbn without a carrier policy file maybe. Not too sure.

Yes it is Verizon. That's bullshit if Google changed this so that people can't use their phones to it's fullest capabilities.

Google is already limiting phone capabilities to US only. E.g "Call screening" and "Hold for me" is also US only feature. I can spoof my location with Market Unlocker to force enable it but this makes my phone think I have a Verizon sim card inserted which occasionally causes me to lose data connection (easy fix is to just make a phone call and hang up). Also, the March feature drop "Smart Compose" is also US only and I have no ****ing idea why. I understand it being English only and that's totally fair but limiting that to just the US is total bullshit.

I was a long time samsung fan and switched over to Pixel 5 after hearing about all these advertised features, only to realise after I got it that these features are US only. Pixel 5 may be my first and last google phone, depending on how Google comes around and stop with all their bullshits.

Hi,

What are the commands to turn off diag mode off? or does this automatically disable when removing the USB, thank you.

Thanks a lot for the video and instructions, however, I tried your method for CMHK (China Mobile Hong Kong) and it doesn't work.

Hi, is the method works also to rooted CalyxOS or any other custom ROM? I'm thinking to move to CalyxOS, but want to keep VoLTE & VoWifi unlocked capablities and Gcam.

    If I'm not mistaken it reverts back after a reboot and the phone is no longer recognized by QPST

    China uses a different type of network technology than the global standard. This may be why it doesn't work for China.
