I currently have a galaxy S8 on Verizon and want to just change phones to the Pro1. I can't just transfer the SIM card correct? So I have to buy another device and activate it, then use the new device's SIM card? So I'll have to buy an extra phone to get this done? Is the right? There is no guarantee that an old SIM, that has been heavily used in a device over a period of time, will work. Speaking from experience, often a fresh SIM card, that gets activated in the mule phone, and then VoLTE is activated and tested (as well as SMS and data -data includes MMS messages) is required. The problem above, and possibly your confusion, was that the voice calls that were made on the mule weren't actual VoLTE calls, instead the calls were completing via CDMA or GSM/UMTS and it was assumed that they were VoLTE. This is a problem, so to be certain that VoLTE calls are taking place it's advisable to go into Settings (on the mule) and change the Preferred Network Type to LTE. This will then only use LTE services for voice and data. If everything checks out okay, you can then transfer the SIM card to the Pro1. Note: The S8 won't be able to be re-activated on Verizon's network (as it will still show the S8's IMEI as active), but, if necessary, you can swap the SIM card back into it and use it.
