Good day @edwa1812,
Thank you for your post and Welcome to the Forums!
The PRIV has the authentic BlackBerry keyboard, legendary security, streamlined communications and productivity. It is the first BlackBerry to use the Android OS.
However, it is not VoLTE compatible and Wi-Fi Calling is only supported on certain iPhone devices.
Take a look at this Blog article for more information!
Too bad! Blackberry in their latest (and perhaps last) effort at staying in the smartphones market has come out second best to IPhone on this. Interestingly the online manual for the Priv says that it HAS Wi-Fi calling capability????
I am pretty sure the OP knows this..... The user is saying that the Blackberry Priv indeed does support WiFi Calling but Rogers has not enabled it for this device. That is what the user is saying... I contacted Blackberry on behalf of another customer at my work and speaking to a higher end manager, they advised me that Rogers has yet accepted and enabled the device for this.
Hopefully Rogers considers this and enables it for this device as it is a neat device and should have this option.
I am happy with most aspects of my Rogers BlackBerry Priv, but since I work from a basement office where wireless reception is really limited, it would certainly help if Rogers enabled the Wi Fi calling WHICH IS AN AVAILABLE FEATURE OF THIS PHONE ACCORDING TO THE BlackBerry MANUAL. Why does Rogers not enable their customers to us this feature on the VB Priv????
Honestly they should have enabled this from the start but i am guessing the more people that complain about it, the more attention it will get and get them to do it, it seems. This feature is needed for you and other users like my self which are in basements and buildings that barely get any service.
Does Rogers One Number not work either? I assume not based on the above comments.
Question about "Wi-Fi Calling"
Anyone knows why Rogers is not providing this feature on BlackBerry PRIV purchased from Rogers?
What 'reasons' or 'explanations' does Rogers provide to their customers? Any idea?
Note about "RogersOneNumber"
I installed it and was able to send text messages. However, the phone did NOT work properly even after what appeared to be successful downloading and installation of the phone app.
After many attempts and failures, I un-installed the app from my PC. Perhaps I'll try again another time.
Thanks - RM_Rogers
