Welcome to Vodafone Community
@ iMoCks Yes it is working on the 7.0 XEU, I follewd the instruction as posted above but left it a little longer the 24 hours. Then access the phone setiings by pressing Phone > numeric keypad > access the settings in the top right hand corner and now wifi calling has come back as an option.
Nice. I disabled wifi calling on my account for over 24 hours and then i enabled it back, yesterday about 6pm and nothing change. Still have no wifi calling option on my XEU 7.0
Just wanted to add my experiences with Wifi Calling on an unbranded S7 Edge. Firstly when I purchased my Vodafone S7 Edge from carphone warehouse I wasn't aware that there was any difference between doing this and getting one direct from Vodafone and all the features that were listed on carphone warehouse’s website for the phone I expected to get on mine, including wifi calling. So I was pretty surprised when I first went to try and use wifi calling in my house, which had a very poor signal and it wouldn't work.
I came on here and explained my issue and was basically greeted with a load of sanctimonious posts with people saying the same guff as on this thread, how vodafone CLEARLY makes it known that wifi calling only works on phones bought directly from them, this is of course nonsense.
In the end after a few calls to vodafone and me being persistant an American vodafone employee suggested that there was a way for him to send me the network settings that would enable wifi calling, which he kindly did. So I know 100% that it is Vodafone withholding the feature and not Android or Samsung as some of the overly pretentious posters on here were suggesting the issue was with.
Unfortunately since the Nougat update I've lost wifi calling but I'll give the guide on here a go to get it back. Thanks to the poster who provided it!
No, I had never heard of wifi calling until I had a text message from Vodafone informing me of this great new feature.
The problem lies firmley at the feet of Vodafone.
Don't shirk away from your responsability, its a Vodafone problem.
Ok. I had some issue on my account and my online account do not let me enable or disable WiFi calling.
I spoke with adviser right now and everything was fixed.
I can confirm - Android 7.0 XEU (Carphone Warehouse UK) - WiFi Calling is working.
Will try to flash BTU at night and check if it works also. If yes i will stay on BTU as it is getting updates earlier than XEU.
like many who skip to the end of a forum to see if there's an answer (thats me) vodafone has just been sloppy updating the information on their site to reflect the changes on android noughat 7.0
I'm sure someone posted the explanation so kudos to them but for people like me that were using this feature because of the atrocious signal inside my house heres the simple way to get it back in 5 steps.
1. tap the green phone icon thats been on android forever
2. at the top right you'll see 3 dots stacked : (missing one) press the top right of the screen on the 3 dots
3. select settings from this drop down menu.
4.swipe down till you see wifi calling
5. slide tab to on
vodafone pay monthly customer android 7.0 pushed on me yesterday
try my method, same sitch as you crap signal etc.
go into your apps, select the green phone icon, click top right on 3 dots, select settings, swipe down till you see wifi calling and tap it on.
I swear its moved from where it was previous, and while most of my apps and settings returned to how they were , wifi calling was switched off.
hope this helps mate.
no, but tomorrow i'll get brand new Galaxy S7 Edge with preinstalled BTU and will try to get WiFi Calling. PM me to remind to give you any info. Sometimes You have to call to customer service and force them to activate it via technical team. That what i have to do to get WiFi Calling on XEU.
@milestone i can confirm that WiFi calling is working on Android 7 BTU
I just need to make call to customer service and adviser was talking with technician team and they have to restart that option in their system, after that i didn't receive any confirmation message but found option in phone settings. Enable it and wifi calling is fully working.
I have now taken the 7.0 btu (non-vodafone) update and can report that wifi calling IS working.
Here's what worked for me:
I cannot say whether the text message did it or whether it was the Vodafone tech doing a reset, but the key thing is that wifi calling is now working with a non-vodafone rom (the Samsung plain vanilla version 6.01 which I downloaded /flashed, and then allowed it to take the 7.0 update).
My take on all of this is that Vodafone are not withholding any features but they do have a silly glitch in their system which requires the wifi calling feature to be reset when upgrading to 7.0. They could also have been more transparent and proactive in providing us with information about this workaround.
My wi-fi calling disappeared when I upgraded android to 7.0. I got it back by doing the following.
Switched it off overnight in my Vodafone account.
When I reactivated it I found the place in my phone settings (not obvious) where it could be turned on.
Select the 3 dots in top right hand corner
Show system apps
Phone (first of 3 entries)
Scroll down to WI-FI CALLING
This worked for me and I now have wi-fi calling again on a phone not purchased directly from Vodafone
I can confirm the procedure above also worked for me on a Carphone Warehouse supplied S7 running Nougat (some threads were suggesting wi-fi calling would not work on non-vodafone supplied handsets).
Upgraded my SGS7 Edge to Andoid 7.0 with a smaller software update being required after this and my Wifi Calling has gone, no option in phone either, its disappeared, but does show Wifi Calling extra as activated in Myvodafone
