WiFi Calling isn't working on my brand new Samsung Galaxy S8+ which was purchased from Telus.

I have a Note 8 and the VoLTE and WiFi calling are working in Montreal. I notice that 2 days ago, It was marked HD on the left side of the call timer. When I'm not on WiFi, the LTE+ sign doesn't change anymore to the regular 4g.

Note 8 user here and new to Telus from Rogers.

VoLTE does work on Telus, WiFi Calling however doesn't. Your 4G and LTE+ haven NOTHING to do with Wi-Fi calling (a feature on Android)!

Telus when will you give us Wi-Fi calling and 'Real' voicemail to text (just like you support on Google devices) recently?

I'm loving the network and everything else but these features are needed by us Android users.

Another month has gone by, and still no update on the status of WiFi calling on the S8.  I have the unfortunate task of working in both mechanical and electrical rooms where cell reception is spotty but WiFi is rock solid.  Is there anyway we can get an ETA?

 

Thanks!

I've given up on the idea that Telus is even thinking about Android at all anymore. I expect Telus will be an Apple only service by early next year, and will tell it's Android users to either get an iPhone or to leave Telus all together. They most likely will send out notices saying your service will be cut off by March 1, 2018 unless you pay up for a $1500 iPhone. Truth is, Telus doesn't want their Android users anyway, as they see them as poor and second class subscribers. Telus only wants the premium, 1st class type of people.

It seems so bizzare. They have the functionality om Android why won't they implement it across Samsung devices? It will take some pressure off their network too.

Hey @dru back in June you noted "Coming Soon" its now Feb 2018 - 3/4 of a year. S9 is almost available. STILL NO WIFI CALLING.

 

I think you're spreading misinformation or have a really bad definition of soon.

Newer phones coming out would be the priority.  You will be lucky in the S8 and S8+ get WiFi Calling by the end of 2018.

It definitely depends on the carrier. I know Fido even supports Wi-Fi Calling on the S7.

Rogers/Fido may have done it first on a national scale for Canada but Telus has never been a pioneering carrier.  Their Apple-like approach is to sit back, wait for everyone else to do it first, and then claim it as a milestone when they get around to doing it years later.  Wireless charging, anyone?!  Smiley Tongue
