Welcome to Vodafone Community
Hi @stewiebrown it's not yet showing on the list here
You would expect it to as the P10 is on the list but it will just be a matter of keeping an eye out or watching the blog to see if it gets added.
I take it there is nothing in the settings yet?
Have you tried a manual firmware update? Just in case.
A mate I work with picked his up on Friday, I will have a look at his tomorrow.
Both the P20 and P20 Pro should support Wi-fi calling. You need three things:
1. A plan that supports Wi-fi calling - most on these phones seem to.
2. To text 'CALLING' to 97888 - Vodafone will then set the service up for you.
3. Enabling certain settings on the phone - and this is where it all goes wrong, as they don't seem to be there !
I have had 3 tedious chats and one call with Vodafone support on this, each going over the same ground. Basically they do not know how to fix this.
Eventually I went to the Huawei support Web site and looked at the manual - consumer.huawei.com/en/support/phones/p20-pro/
This says that you need to go to Settings >Wireless & networks > Mobile network and turn on VoLTE calls and turn on Wi-fi calling. I do not have those options in my settings - anyone else have them ?
It also says that you need to go to the phone dialler and go to > Settings > Wi-Fi calling, enable Wi-Fi calling. Touch Mode and follow the onscreen instructions to set the preferred network. I do not have those settings - anyone else have them ?
It appears that we need a firmware update to provide these features - I have tried numerous times, but no update is available at the moment.
If anyone has further info on this, then please post here.......
Hi @Steve928 that's normally the case, a firmware update is rolled out the the new device once Vodafone have tested it. Hopefully it should come fairly quickly for you and the other users.
Hopefully the team here can feed back and ensure that the firmware can be rolled out (provided they are going to support it !!).
Gave it ago if your mean going to setting about and update? Will await to here from you tomorrow, was hoing someone from vodafone was going to comment.
That's very interesting. I have no recollection of this being one of the 'Suggestions' on the list I had, but too late now as I 'processed' all the items on it and I have no idea if there is any way of getting the list back to check.
However, this does suggest that there is an option/setting/switch somewhere on the phone that enables Wi-fi calling. I assume that he also sent the 'CALLING' text to Vodafone as I was told that this was a pre-requisite for Wi-fi calling to work!?
I've just been through every setting in turn again (including the developer options which I turned on) and I can't see it.
I'll call Vodafone tomorrow afternoon and will report back if I find anything that helps.
I too don't have that option, I have actived WiFi Calling by text. I was wondering where the phone was purchased mine was CPW Maybe a vodafone firmware?
Would love to get this working.
Mine was direct from Vodafone - order placed over the 'phone.
Is he able to check in Settings >Wireless & networks > Mobile network and see if there are settings in there for VoLTE?
And also look in the dialler to see if there is an option to turn on Wi-fi calling?
Spoke to Huawei today via live chat.
According to them, Vodafone needs to active the Wifi calling option, a firmware update is not required as the fuction already exists on the phone awaiting activation.
Is that per phone, or globally ?
According to one poster a friend of theirs is using it, but clearly some of us (despite sending the SMS to Vodafone) cannot ! I'm just about to call Vodafone.
I think I have the solution - well, it's worked for me ! Another call to support (30 mins this time), being very insistent that it is a Vodafone issue, as they wanted me to contact Huawei as "all their settings were correct"!
I was able to refer to stewiebrown's post about his live chat with Huawei, saying that the phone was ready for Wi-fi calling and it was for Vodafone to set it.
During the three previous chats and one telephone call I was assured that my 'CALLING' text had been recieved and Wi-fi calling had definitely been activated. During this last call the operator kept pushing tech support to double-check everything and guess what - it had not been rolled out through the network. They reset it and it was there on the dialler (Wi-fi calling disabled -> set to enabled) within a minute.
So, if it isn't working for you after your text, then CALL support and suggest that they re-provision this facility.
Did you receive a text with the re-provision? As been told one has been sent, but with the new system they are not alway received as texts and I'll need to reboot the phone in half hour if no text received.
If not I'll get back onto them.
Thanks for your help.
