Re: Why no Rogers Wi-Fi calling with iPhone 4 ?

I have a 4S and, quite some time back, the consensus on various web sites was that it would support Wi-Fi calling. Fast forward to today, and it turns out that was incorrect. Apple has stated that Wi-Fi calling starts with the iPhone 5C and nothing earlier. That's one reason I'm considering upgrading to the iPhone 6S. I live in a basement suite and the signal is marginal at the best of times.

I have an iPhone 5 and Nexus 6, both not supported by Rogers Wifi Calling.

Just looked at Rogers iPhone line up, including the new 6S and 6S + and noticed that they only support Wi-Fi calling starting with the iPhone 6. Here's a link: http://www.rogers.com/consumer/wireless/compare-iphones

we know thats complete garbage when apple says the 5s & 5c also support wifi calling, this is purely on rogers' end for whatever reason, or a legit typo but i doubt it. thats assuming we're going to actually get wifi calling in 3 days like they promised, yet again....& not another year of lies

 

im checking daily now for carrier update..(iphone 6)

Hi @jimboden

 

The page you visited is a comparison page, find our WIFI Calling FAQ here. A snippet of the information below:

 

To use Wi-Fi Calling, you will need the following:

  • An iPhone 5c, 5s, 6 or 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus with iOS 9 or later installed — remember to update your carrier settings when prompted to do so at the end of the OS installation

Yes, I know they are comparisons but, as such, they should be accurate. If Wi-Fi calling is supported on the 5S, why is it missing on the comparison chart? Also, the price comparison for the 5S is incomplete as it only shows a 16GB version. Maybe someone should make sure it's updated. After all, we don't all know where every piece of information is provided on the Rogers web site. When I see something like the comparison chart, I expect it to be 100% accurate.Smiley Wink

Just a little off topic but I waited an entire year for that feature to come on my iPhone 6 when I had it. Was supposed to be released back when iOS 8 came out. Recently sold my iPhone 6 and got a Note 5. I know the Note 5 can do it but no option yet. I'll be pretty mad if I don't get this feature on the Note. Just my luck Rogers won't enable the feature.

because your iPhone 4 is 6 years old and does not support it in its harware or in its O/S  Rogers requires iOS 9 and your iPhone 4 cant install that. you need a 5S/C and newer running on iOS 9 for this to work

has nothing to do with Apple doesn't care...its a 6 year old phone without the neccesary hardware or software to support Wifi Calling.
