wifi calling s8 plus

2: Seeker

What you've just had an OTA update from Vodafone and Wi-Fi calling is still not showing? I posted what to do, flash the latest XEU/BTU Firmware off Sammobile website in fact XEU/BTU have both recently released new firmware updates for S8 SM-G950F version and it still contains Wi-Fi calling in firmware. But as I stated before your S8 needs to be unlocked version, so if it's locked to Vodafone then youll have to pay for an unlock code or wait 3 months and Vodafone will give you a free unlock code then you can flash the unlocked international European firmware which will give you Wi-Fi calling option.

Ok yer apparently a big problem, my network is Vodafone but because I flashed International version my Wi-Fi calling is fine. Vodafone seriously need to sort this fix out.

@baz can't believe after all the promising they've still not fixed it. Should we all stop paying our bills and ask them to fix ?? Is that possible ?? Cos they have been denying us a service...

This is the last email after i suggested that there vodafone secure net thing might be causing the problem.

 

If you're referring to our Vodafone Secure Net and you wish to try without this feature, you can disable it on our My Vodafone app.

Go to - Offers and extras > Buy extras > Mobile data options > Vodafone Secure Net.

However it's very unlikely this would be the cause of the issue, as our Vodafone Secure Net and the device software are two completely separate things.

As mentioned by our Technical team, as soon as the next software update is released, you Wi-Fi Calling service will return.

Thanks,

To be fair I was having similar issues with WiFi calling and Vodafone said it should be working but it wasn't but then I got a Samsung update and Wi-Fi calling appeared 

I'm not saying there is no fault but it was interesting that it was fixed Nithya Samsung update 

Maybe a software clash I've no idea but I have noticed that it is getting resolved

Admittedly a bit slow but that was down to Samsung 

Sorry for asking but you are on the correct bundle 

I meet new people all the time through being a musician and when the gear talking starts mostly about vintage guitars, amps valve or the latest modelling tech someone always pulls there phone out comparing tuners and various musician apps and I've come across a few who have been trying to get Wi-Fi calling and there are more who are not on the correct bundle that offers it or there device doesn't support it than there are that people can get access to it 

There is a problem somewhere but it is finding that little glitch is obviously causing them problems and surely if they could press a button and all is well it would of been pressed a while back 

I had the issue myself and from what I can see this issue is using a lot of Vodafone's resources and I've followed loads of threads on here and to be fair they take each one as a never before heard problem 

That's why when I got mine because of what they had already done for me that I was unaware of as soon as my signal disappeared in my ma's village WiFi calling popped into action and I don't need to miss 2 days of calls any more 

The signal is that bad in that area (middle of nowhere) for all networks if your in the front garden on the phone next time they pass  I always get asked what network am I on or how did you manage to make a call with no signal

Strange but true

Hi SKYMAN513

 

To be honest this has been going on for months now not only that i thought that they would test phone using there software for any faults before releasing it and if there any bugs in which they didn't find and we did we would report it for them to be fixed.

I think I've had 2 software updates since notifying them of wifi calling and always got told it be fixed in next software update. As you can see it ain't.

I know what your saying about the plan I'm on red plan and qualify for wifi calling.

I would like to know if anyone here is using a vodafone SIM on an unlocked s8 and to see if wifi calling works when making a call.

Reason i ask that if it works then it might be the software that vodafone have on the phone could be the issue if not then it's more likely to be something there end that's stopping wifi calling going out like port blocking or something.

hopefully one of the VODA moderators will throw you a line when they see how long you've waited  and others have had there's resolved 

Angry is not the word I'd like to use it will do  if I had that device had didn't have by now I wouldn't pleased any way to pay the least😠
