Here is the FAQ from Rogers:
It is a good first try but needs some clarifications: For example what happens when somebody has unlimited free evenings and weekends calls. Would be the wifi call free for those time periods ?
Also the FAQ states that:
"Customers with select features and services, including any of the following, will not have access to Wi-Fi Calling:
This is interresting. So if I have RON on my account then I cannot have Wifi calling? Why is this and how would that work ? If I interpret this correctly I can have free incoming and outgoing calls using RON but if I want to use WIFI calling and pay $0.25 a minute for the same service then Rogers does not want my money ?
Lets talk about pricing:
I think that Rogers should price the wifi calls cheaper than the regular over the air cell calls. If they can do free local calls on RON why they do not provide the same for free on Wifi ? Essentially both are voip calls and the wholesale cost of a voip call in north america is $0.001 cents a minute currently.
This pricing scheme encourages customer to get the unlimited call /text share everything accounts as that would include also unlimited wifi calling. The problem with this approach is that it does not encourages offloading from the cell network to local wifi unless the cell network is not usable. Making wifi calling free or at least significantly cheaper than any calls routed through the cell network would promote the right behaviour: Use wifi whenever it is available (and offload a large load from the cell network) and save cell network capacity for those who are truly mobile and away from their wifi.
T-Mobile offers wifi calling for free for their postpaid customers and charges regular rates for prepaid customers. Rogers should follow the same practice.
Just checked for an update on my iPhone and it still says 8.4.1 is current. I imagine it will show up this afternoon. Not sure why people keep talking about EST when we're on EDT, so we'll see what happens at 1PM ET. I think it's much easier to talk about ET rather than EST or EDT. Presumably, we all know what time of year it is.
Have you tried restarting your device or doing a factory reset to see if that will fix it? I know some in the states are having major issues not being able to install the update / the update is messing around with settings.
