Hi. If you got your phone direct from Samsung then it will work, mine does. Just call Samsung and ask them to call Vodafone to get them to turn it on. They have an agreement with Samsung and can do it. It depends on who you speak to at Vodafone as to whether they know or not. Samsung were very helpful for me and even when Vodafone said you had to buy the handset from them Samsung intervened and said that was not correct and Vodafone just have to send the settings and activate wifi calling on the account. They did, in the end, and it works.

As soon as there's any updates regarding Wi-Fi Calling for the Samsung S8, they'll be available on the Vodafone Wi-Fi Calling page.

Hi and Thx for getting back to me @becca_p 

Ok it is all sorted now I spoke to live chat team and told them I have wi-fi calling enabled in the app but not on option on the phone so she looked into it.

She come back and said it's not been activated on my account so she said she will activate it. Give it 15 to 30 mins so after 10mins i turned off phone and back on got a text for configuration mms and internet after that checked wi-fi calling and it was there. 

So if anyone needs to know contact online chat and they can sort it for you.

Hello.

 

Yes my phone is direct from Samsung and when VF send the update message it makes the wifi calling option available. To be sure you can also send the word "CALLING" to 97888.

 

Works fine now but its been really painful for the past week because of poor coverage at our office.

 

Works now fine

Its very buggy on my phone. On most calls no one can hear me. I switched from an iphone 7 plus. Why can things be simple on Android .

After a quick call with Vodafone, my WiFi calling is now available. 

 

Not sure what the previous calls, chats and visits to Vodafone stores were doing wrong but it's now there.
