    Has anyone hacked VoLTE on either the X3 or 950xl?

    I don't think there's a difference in terms of performance but maybe somebody on here would know better. I'm on T Mobile as well and my reception. Is great? I may be selling mine soon if I do I'll let you know. I can't decide which of these devices I want to keep long term as they ate both Great. Haha
    The one thing I'm wondering is if it's even worth buying, especially if it's only being supported for one more year, as far as I seem it could be a waste of time... More of a case of my heart ruling my brain.. 😂

    I agree.
    I love the OS in and out. The ability to alter and tweak Windows phones is also one of the main reasons I still buy them and continue to use them daily. IMO most people who would still buy a 950 XL are either curious, in love it, don't care about apps, or prefer the native enterprise mobility features (Outlook, Office, SharePoint, Yammer, etc.)

    I just received my new 950XL from ebay and it was a sealed box and appears to be actually a new unused phone. Prior to installing sim and SD, I ran all the updates starting from 2016 build it came with. It didn't skip to 1709, so it took several hours. Phone runs fine overall, way better than my Idol 4S. However, TMO signal strength is down 2 bars on average vs my TMO V20 and Idol. Similar issue I had with X3 I tested last year. 4glte a little slower than V20, so I guess I need the volte hack. Anyway, it's now my primary phone :) And the camera rocks, obviously.

    The bars may or may not depict accurate signal from a UI perspective. Those actually can vary between device makers even if the signal is the same on both devices. It's just whatever they choose it to be in the software config. The V20 faster, well I hope it would be, it taps out at cat12 where the Lumia sits at cat6 LTE. The V20 is newer hw too.

    I've been using it for a week and signal hasn't been a problem other than in my house which has more to do with location vs TMo towers. Other phones in my house use wifi calling which is not an option for the 950xl. It works good enough, few drop calls here and there, no big deal. I'm still amazed that I can actually tell the UI works better on 950XL than Idol 4S. Scrolling and switching in and out of apps is definitely faster. Touch screen seems more responsive than Idol 4S.

    I'm waiting on a 950 XL, should arrive in the next few days which I bought off ebay for £124 or so including delivery.

    Will see how it goes, as my L930 (second replacement also off ebay) is acting up however it was only bought for £50 or so. It needs a hard reset however it is just far too tedious to set up all my email accounts again with 2FA (I have over a dozen - for compartmentalisaton and spam filtering) and it's starting to have screen + battery issues. It would cost me the same amount I paid for the phone to fix the screen and the charging issues as it needs a new usb port and battery.

    I'm curious about the VoLTE hack and any other hacks primarily anything that will allow me to set a damn static IP address. I was on holiday until saturday and the hotel had 6 ssids!

    Long story short it was a mess.

    If I had been able to set a static ip address on my L930 it would have saved me so much aggravation - as it would connect with 172.x.x.x and few feet into the hotel room - dropped connection and connected with 169.x.x.x Z.z.

    Anyone having problems updating or installing MSN Money, MSN Sports and Weather? All 3 were not updating on my 950xl. I then had the bright idea of uninstalling the apps and reinstalling. Well, Money and Sports wont install now! Uninstalling Weather was not an option so it's still working but not updating. Anyone else have this problem?

    Hard reset required :( But, with limited apps and Windows 10, not a big deal :). The 3 msn apps never updated from day one.

    Hard reset worked for me. Unfortunately it wipes your phone, so backup anything that's not on cloud storage.
