With rogers being on record that they will support wifi calling in ios 8, and with the GM now available, when should we be expecting a carrier update to enable it?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
So I pretty much got my Iphone because Rogers announced wi-fi calling because of the lack of cell reception in my basement (no signal pretty much all the time) My old Iphone 4 used to get 2 bars down here pretty much all the time.
Pretty dissapointed it hasn't been released yet and I hope it comes out soon...
Quick question; With Rogers One Number, I've been using it and it seems like a great alternative for now, I cannot however, send any picture messages even though this and Rogers advertises MMS support with the app....and the duplicate messages suck but I guess I can turn off some setting to turn that off.
Looking forward to your replies, thanks.
I'm on the verge of moving to another provider for my 2 cell phone lines.
Within last year, I have logged 2 technical tickets with Rogers due to poor cell phone reception in my house.
Potential WiFi calling capability with latest iPhones is the only thing that kept me with Rogers, hoping it would help with calls being dropped.
"We’ll support the iOS 8 Wi-Fi calling feature when it becomes available in Canada.."
Now, 3 months passed by since iOS 8 release, and we are still waiting..
Dropped calls are extremely annoying, and I just hope somebody at Rogers would come out and give us a more concrete update rather than just "stay tuned". How much more?
Yes, I've tried it a couple of times and it's not very seamless. There are delays when you open the app and for some reason the quality is inferior, even though my Internet is good. Ookla shows 35Mbit/s downstream and 10 up.
My expectation wifi calling would offer better quality.
I've tried it a few times, but have also noticed the poor quality. I usually get a bar across the screen near the top saying there are network issues or words to that effect. I have the Hybrid 150 package with an ASUS router and get download speeds on my old iPhone 4S up to 48mbps, so there's certainly nothing wrong with my Wi-Fi.
