The 10 III does the stuff we’ve been talking about here automatically in the modem, so those modem.conf files aren’t used (and their paths are actually incorrect on that device). I’m not even sure if that config id is used at all.
FYI all, VoLTE calling, SMS, MMS and Data working on T-Mobile USA and US Mobile using a Xperia 10 ii. Probably would work for Mint as well. See mbn conf details here: VoLTE provider support - #110 by hackman238
Hi! I’m having hard time to get my Xperia 10 II to register 4G calls (the toggle is just blinking, I’ll now leave it there trying for the rest of the day…).
I’m using a Telia SIM in Finland.
a config file seems to be in place in:
I double checked with operator that 4G calls are enabled for my phone subscription. SIM card is also new enough (from 2017 or 2018, I can check later).
Has it worked robust for everyone else who’s using Telia in Finland?
I also haven’t figured out Telia EE yet, maybe they’re using the same configuration, except we don’t know which one works.
generic but nothing has worked thus far.
Sony Xperia 10 II & T-Mobile in US
[root@sonyxperia defaultuser]# getprop persist.vendor.somc.cust.modem0
I presume that is the config file that I need to map to.
How do I create / extract /construct, the config file for T-Mobile US ?
You can use https://github.com/JohnBel/EfsTools to create Qualcomm modem config binaries. I don’t know if there will be signature or attestation issues though. For T-Mobile US the following works for now: VoLTE provider support - #110 by hackman238
I meant VoLTE and corrected it in my post.
I am not sure if I understood the instructions for enabling VoLTE on X10II (single sim) correctly. The first step I did was pasting the following command to the console:
dbus-send --system --print-reply --type=method_call --dest=org.ofono /ril_0 org.ofono.IpMultimediaSystem.SetProperty string:Registration variant:string:auto
which gave me the following output:
Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "SetProperty" with signature "sv" on interface "org.ofono.IpMultimediaSystem" doesn't exist
You did not. There are only two steps to enable VOLTE on 10II.
- Update to 22.214.171.124
- Toggle added to Settings → System → Mobile network to easily enable VoLTE
Should there is working config for your carrier it will work if not follow:
VoLTE on the Xperia 10 II - filling in the gaps
Missed the 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 update, that explains it. Thanks.
With my Xperia 10 II I can register VoLTE and use phone calls / incoming calls successfully. But sending SMS is not working anymore.
I’m using a SIM card from 1und1 with the provider D2 Vodafone DE.
I have successfully registered in Polkomtel operator (Plus GSM) - Poland. However I had to manually create modem.conf.
- getprop gave me S185.1, so I have created new directory with that name /vendor/oem/modem-config/
- created modem.conf in/vendor/oem/modem-config/S185.1 with the following content “mcfg_sw/generic/euro/polkomte/vlvw/pl/mcfg_sw.mbn”
After that both voice and sms are working without problems while being connected to LTE network.
how does that apply to 4G/VoLTE when roaming?
I have a X10ii and live in France with Orange as provider - VoLTE works fine at home.
I’m currently in the US, therefore roaming - T-Mobile is the provider I am on.
When doing steps 1 and 2, I see that my provider is still Orange, as I’m getting
S11.3 and the
modem.conf file contains:
I tried using the workaround suggested here but unsurprisingly, since the value for me is
S11.3 and it already exists, that did nothing.
So I’m not quite sure if I’m supposed to do something? Or is roaming just not taken into account at the moment?
Oops, I accidentally posted in the wrong thread. moving my issue here:
So, I tried to enable VoLTE with Salt (Switzerland), but it just won’t work. The config looks fine:
[root@Xperia10II-DualSIM defaultuser]# getprop persist.vendor.somc.cust.modem0 S32.1
The modem config is in /vendor/firmware_mnt/image/modem_pr/mcfg/configs/mcfg_sw/generic/euro/salt/vw/ch/ and is correctly set:
[root@Xperia10II-DualSIM defaultuser]# cat /vendor/oem/modem-config/S32.1/modem.conf mcfg_sw/generic/euro/salt/vw/ch/mcfg_sw.mbn
However, enabling VoLTE in the ‘mobile network’ settings just results in the dot blinking indefinitely, staying at status ‘Not registered’.
journalctl logs the following messages when I enable the setting:

Those do not look pretty helpful to me. Is there any log where I can find more information about what’s going on?
It doesn’t look like there’s much else you can do on the SailfishOS side. Maybe contact Salt, or just leave it for a couple of days to see if it suddenly starts working.
Thank you so much for your experience, I am using 10 III and the paths for Polkomtel are slightly different.
devel-su mkdir -p /vendor/oem/modem-config/S185.1 echo -n "/vendor/firmware_mnt/image/modem_pr/mcfg/configs/mcfg_sw/generic/EU/Polkomtel/VLVW/Poland/mcfg_sw.mbn" >> /vendor/oem/modem-config/S185.1/modem.conf
The weird thing is even after creating that and rebooting, I still can’t enable it. Any further steps I should do? I will wait and hope it will start working, I hope if X10II worked III will too, but this phone was never sold by them.
I don’t know if the same mapping can be done in case of xperia 10 III - I doubt that, but maybe someone else can shed some light on it . Nevertheless I suggest you to enable volte explicitly - if you haven’t done it already. It is done by sending SMS message ‘WlaczVoLTE’ to number 2601 (for postpaid) or by shord code
*101*11*1317# (for prepaid).
Both xperia 10 II and III are not officialy volte supported phones by polkomtel according to their website. Xperia 10 II works with volte, so chances are the 10 III may also work.
No, the X10iii doesn’t look at those modem.conf files at all to my knowledge. The choice of config is automatically selected internally by the modem. So messing with those on a III won’t do anything.
Thank you a ton, now it works!
Also thank you @abranson, interesting!
