Can someone at Rogers please explain to me why Rogers will not give the 1st generation Google Pixel WiFi calling? I see that it is coming out for the Google Pixel 2 line.
It can not be that the 1st generation can't manage WiFi calling, as friends on other networks have it on their 1st generation Pixel's. You support older iPhones (iPhone 5c, 5s, 6 or 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7, 7 Plus) , Samsung (Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S7, S7 edge) and LG Phones (G4, G5) with WiFi calling, so why not the 1st generation Pixel?
The Pixel line is suppose to be a flagship device for Google, the networks should fully support the entire line with flagship attributes.
Please help me understand?
The only reason I can think of why Rogers won't support Google Pixel and Pixel XL wifi calling is that there are very few people buying these phones in comparison with Apple/Samsung/LG and Rogers doesn't want to do the testing and support. However, if Rogers starts supporting Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, then I really hope Rogers can also support 1st generation Pixel and XL.

Welcome to the Community & thank you for your post.
There is presently no change to the current availability to WiFi Calling for the 1st gen Pixel. We'll be sure to update the Community if anything changes. You can also keep an eye on our OS Upgrade Schedule to see whats in the pipeline.
