Will the Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge support VoLTE, WiFi calling

Title says it all. What is the stance on the newest Samsung flagships supporting VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling?

They should. The S6 series does (at least my S6 Edge+ does).

Hello @jackthecompguy

At this moment on VoLTE works. I have called many times with LTE still there and never changed.
WiFi Calling does not unfortunately as the setting is there.

Just to clarify, VoLTE works on my S6E+, not Wi-Fi calling.

i m confirming S7 and S7 edge not purchased directly from Rogers DO NOT SUPPORT VOLTE. ROGERS IS AWARE OF THIS. THEY BLOCK NON ROGERS UNLOCKED DEVICES BY IMEI

Hello @kavkaz

That is correct. It's not that they are blocking it, they want to make sure it works first on their devices before going to unlocked ones. Just like the iPhone models.

Hello @kavkaz

Actually you can still use your device on the Rogers network but the VOLTE won't work. You can still use the internet, call, text and such. Thus means u can still use it! 🙂
