I have just Arctivated WiFi calling as my sure signal no linger works. I can make calls ok, but SMS texting doesn’t work. This is on my Huawei and my partners IPhone. I have contacted Vodafone chat and they couldn’t get it to work either!! Any help please

I'm intrigued to find out why certain models of iPhone can accept SMS over Wifi calling?  For example, the 64GB iPhone 11 accept SMS over Wifi calling but the 128 and 256GB models can't?

No idea. Knowing Apple they charge a royalty or licence fee per model or something. 🤣

Its a decision made by Vodafone.
Other networks support SMS on WIFI calling on huge numbers of different handsets, Vodafone choose not to.
