T-Mobile has recently announced that Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 users have an update on the way. Both updates are already in the process of rolling out, and in both cases — the handsets will be getting support for VoLTE services. And equally important as the updates is the VoLTE market support.
Originally supported in San Francisco and Seattle, T-Mobile now lists VoLTE support for more than a dozen markets. The list includes Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Long Island, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New England, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC as well as the previously mentioned San Francisco and Seattle.
This update will leave the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 with Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat. In the case of the Galaxy S5, users will have see baseband version G900TUVU1BNF6. Galaxy Note 3 users will end up with baseband version N900TUVUDNF1. Users with either of these handsets will be able to grab the update over-the-air — provided they are in one of the VoLTE markets.
If you happen to live outside of those markets and still want to upgrade (you may end up traveling to one of those markets), you’ll need to update using Kies. Bottom line here, if you have a Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 3 and live in any of those VoLTE markets — make sure to keep an eye out for an update notification.
Otherwise, T-Mobile LG G Flex users should already be taken care of as a similar update rolled out beginning back on May 22.
