Now that we are well into December of 2017, I just wanted to reiterate that locked phones are a thing of the past (well, 4 days in the past).
I'm extremely hopeful Rogers will make it a priority to look after their subscribers who use unlocked Android devices with Wi-Fi and VoLTE capabilities. For someone like me who works in an office that provides 1-2 bars of EDGE on a consistent daily basis, having Wi-Fi calling would be completely liberating.
Who else is in this same boat as me?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.

They will not work, either will 5G. The device is not officially supported by Rogers.

I'm looking to buy a Samsung S21 Ultra with 256Gb. As far as I can tell, Rogers only sells the 128Gb option.
I could look at buying an unlocked phone directly from Samsung, but I know for a fact that this will lock me out of VoLTE and Wifi calling as Rogers only allows device bought through them to access these features (eh, CRTC, so much for forcing carrier to sell unlocked phone!).
So, other than switching carrier, what are my options?

I have the same issue, but my phone is a but more obscure, its a sony xperia xz premium from 2017, rogers should either fix the signal issues, or give us wifi calling. its insane that its 2021 and i get 0 bars in a condo, in toronto !

Just a quick update about this issue as every google search seems to end here. I just bought a S22 Ultra unlocked from Amazon. Popped my Rogers SIM card in it before first boot, setup the phone. After that, I validated the CSC Region code used (Settings, About Phone, Software Information, look under Service provider software version for "RWC", this means you're on Rogers region code).
After that, nothing else. It just worked. VoLTE and Wifi Calling both works out of the box!
If your CSC region code is something, Google around, there are way to change it. But note that it seems that this will factory reset your phone, so use with caution!

I also bought a Z Flip 3 directly from Samsung this time (I usually get my devices through Rogers but this time I wanted to have an unsubsidized device), and it too worked out of the box (VoLTE, Wi-Fi Calling, 5G [after switching to a Infinite Plan).
