I have purchased an unlocked S22 Ultra from www.samsung.com due to the fact the system would not allow me to place an order for Verizon branded one because I have a postpaid account (entire B.S.) as I am paying a full price) but I am having second thoughts after reading this forum.
Are there any features that are not going to work like 5G, visual voicemail, wifi calling etc.?
What about coverage/receptions - is there any difference in the bands between the unlocked version and the Verizon one?
Thank you in advance for help!

Does this help? -Jacob
No, not really. The information provided is very generic and it does not help.
I need to know which SPECIFIC services will NOT work on SPECIFIC device - Samsung S22 Ultra.
You really need to start publishing the tables of features not work on monthly basis - seems the forum is full of similar questions.
In addition I need to know which frequencies and bands are used in my area so I can compare to the unlocked phone. I have this, but again it's very high level:
Can you comment on your experience with Verizon features (Video calling, WiFi Calling, HD calling) on your unlocked S22 Ultra? I have searched this community and the internet on this subject, and chatted with both Verizon and Samsung, and so far I have received non-answers, ambiguous answers, and just plain conflicting information on the subject. Your firsthand experience with the specific phone I am thinking of buying would be extremely valuable to me, my wife's Note9 just quit and we want to replace it soon. The unlocked versions of the S22 Ultra have more memory, are less expensive, and are actually available for purchase.
The Samsung feature Call and text on other devices will not work on my Verizon provided Samsung S22 Ultra. That feature has been disabled and removed. In order to access this feature you will need to purchase a Shared Line for $10/mo.
