I dont know what open ports but you MUST have a strong wifi connection for wifi calling to work and not all wireless routers are capable of wifi calling.

The requirement is 802.11ac which I have. Signal strength is impeccable.

Make sure ports 500 and 4400 are open for wifi calling

Assuming UDP?

No change after opening up 4500 and 500 UDP. But did find an article elsewhere here in the forums (can't find the link again) that mentioned IPSEC Passthrough needed to be enabled. That solved the issue!

It might not be entirely replated to this topic, but in the past when I was using the phone th enetwork connection indicator dropped from LTE to 4G, in recent weeks I noticed that even during phone calls the LTE is still maintained.

Some people say that 4G is LTE, but from my testing I noticed that when LTE is presented (over 4G) the downlaod speeds atre much faster.

Last weekend I was in Vancouver and I saw for a few minutes some indication I was only able to see before in the US that showed LTE+ in the netwrok indicator. Not entirely sure what that means.

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

I'm trying to activate WiFi calling on my S7 Edge, but after entering the verification code I get an error saying it can't activate since there is a conflicting service.

 

I have been signed up for OneNumber for a while, but the site for that seems dead and I'm not sure how to take it off my account. Any way to do that easily?

 

Thanks

Anything new about wifi calling?
Unlocked S7 from different carrier.
On 6.0.1 and don't see an option(WiFi calling) to set up with the phone app(more tab).
About device shows no phone number.
S7 is from Wind.... And only saying 3g.

Would it be possible to flash a Rogers firmware to enable this non Rogers device issue.
Thanks

no need to flash any firmware to get LTE,just  google Samsung CSC change, then switch it to Rogers. You will get LTE, however no Wi-Fi calling. Wi-Fi calling only works on phones purchased through Rogers (online or in store).
