Hello, @kavkaz

 

Thank you for posting your query in the Community. At this moment I see the Wi-Fi Calling feature is supported on both Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ devices. Please stay tuned, we will update this thread as more information becomes available. Thank you for your patience. 

 

Cheers,

So I assume only Rogers S8/S8+ will able to use VoWiFi and VOLTE?

Hello @RNEric

That is correct. With all androids and iPhones. They roll out those to be enabled on the Rogers branded ones and then later on to the unlocked models

Is the battery drain issue with WiFi calling resolved?

Hello @rzanatta

The device has not been released yet. So i don't believe we are talking about the same one.

Hello @kavkaz

Mine works just fine. I have the little phone symbol on the top right beside the WiFi icon. Turned into airplane mode and worked still.

Re: Wi-Fi Calling on Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+

When first implemented, just having the feature enabled caused a noticeable battery drain on the S7, and users disabled the feature for that reason.

That's what I was referring to. Was that issue every fixed?
