Re: WiFi Calling with IOS 8

we are "on topic", but rogers isnt

u are a rogers employee are u not? like the many others on here that just seem to post statements off of cue cards & "warn" users for no reason, instead of communicating to them, like being "on topic" about wifi calling.

where is it?
why did rogers lie?
when is it coming?
is it coming?

or do we have to speak with our wallets, like how most companies operate today.?

Re: WiFi Calling with IOS 8

Hey guys

I jusy read on Mobilesyrup that Rogers and Fido will release it when ios9 comes out in the fall.. Apparently they are already starting to train reps and customer service reps in store on how to do this and such. Read the link below.

Very interesting. Thanks for the link to that article. The author mentioned that the feature will be available, starting with the iPhone 5. I know that iOS 9 will work with the iPhone 4S, so I can't see why iOS Wi-Fi calling would not work as well, unless the device has some kind of limitation. Time will tell. Smiley Happy

Re: WiFi Calling with IOS 8

Quick sort of off topic question - does Rogers support Wi-Fi calling on any non-iOS devices? Like Note 5, S6 etc? And same with VoLTE? Where is VoLTE?

Hello @jackthecompguy

Some LG devices use VoLTE. I remember a long time ago Blackberries and some android devices used WiFi calling. No its hard to see that

Thanks Meowmix... Thought i'd try 🙂
I am happy with Rogers compared with my last provider for wireless but just a little disappointed stuff like VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling has taken so long to be mainstream.
