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

Hello @thesaint

Well sadly Samsung has said that all their devices that they will make from the Galaxy S and Note line will feature the Iris scanner and edge feature now. They will start this as of next year. They will get rid of the standard model.

That is good that u got the update and it works well!!!

That hurts me to know that the EDGE feature will be a permanent feature.

 

When this phone becomes obsolete/annoys me, then I will have to switch to a non SAMSUNG device 😞

 

But yes, Wifi calling rocks.

Just wondering if anyone is having problems actually receiving a picture when Wifi Calling is enabled. I can send Pics no problem but when receiving on the stock messaging app it just says downloading. I turn off wifi and the pic then appears.

@Dx9 I did a quick try with my friends and found I have the same problem. When WiFi calling is on, I can't send or receive MMS. I had to turn it off to make it work.

A little off topic here... anyone have any idea if we will get Android N update from Rogers? Just curious.

So again I'm having a problem with VOLTE and Wifi Calling on my S7 Edge. Both don't work as of yesterday and have had the phone almost 2 weeks now. Same thing happened to my Note 7 a week after I got it. Stopped working and only way to get it working again was a Factory Reset. Can't be doing this every week. Rogers Tech support couldn't fix the issue on their end anyways.

I'm experiencing the exact same thing... I've done 3-4 factory reset since last month... I realized that while I will not restart my S7 wifi calling and VoLTE calls work great but after the first reboot everything stop working and as you know we can't count on the great support of Rogers techs ... they don't even know the difference between NFC chip in the SIM card to pay with my bank application and the NFC onbard the phone..

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

Yeah once again mine has been fine. Even with Wi-Fi Calling enabled I wasn't able to receive Pics. Would just say downloading. Would never come in till I turned Wi-Fi Calling off. So I was always thinking it wasn't working properly. Then I realized I was getting pics at home with it enabled. Next day back at work and not receiving pics once again. So Wi-Fi calling dependent of some ports for sure on the router. I don't feel like troubleshooting at work with the router but does work at friends places and my home. Think the static setting instead of DHCP is conflicting with something.

I have the Samsung S7 Edge. Wifi calling is enabled and registered. Works flawless on public wifi connections, but not at home where I need it most (mobile signal is very weak).

I have a secure firewall setup. What ports are required to use wifi calling?
