Update was today, took 3 hours to get Wifi calling setup...there's a bug in the update....they had to try a ton of things to finally get it to work for me.
Still doesn't fully work, because it won't let me set my phone to a 911 address.
At least it works for now.
There's no app you can download to give you Telus WiFi calling. It's part of the firmware in the phone. Are you thinking of Skype or Google Duo or something like that? They aren't the same thing.
It would be nice to have WiFi calling outside Canada but at least it works in Canada so that's something.

All I asked is for what reason they are not allowing this outside Canada. There are a handful of countries where it is in fact illegal, but in the overwhelming majority of countries it is perfectly legal - and a huge number of mobile companies do in fact offer it outside of Canada.
I posted this because I was interested in what justification Telus had for not allowing this outside of Canada. The fact that they've been completely silent about it speaks volumes.
I contend that there is no reason to restrict it. If there were, Rogers and Freedom wouldn't allow it, nor would AT&T and a host of others.
Telus needs to up their game. I pay quite enough money for my Telus mobile service and I expect it to be on a par with the competition in all respects, not just Canadian coverage. Their lack of response is quite disappointing and annoying.
