Anyone know when WiFi calling will be arriving for iOS on these handsets iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 6S. I'm currently experiencing a less than stable SureSignal experience and I need to move to WiFi calling as soon as possible. No signal inside or outside the house... a complete nightmare.

 

Any official Vodafone comments would be most welcome on this subject.

 

Regards,

Anthony

Until it launches officially they will not comment I'm afraid.

Thank you Cookie20 for your reply and contribution.

So frustrating... been waiting over 1 year for WiFi calling to arrive... it finally does and my Sure Signal starts acting up and Vodafone launch the service supporting only two handsets... wish I could get out of my contract now and get onto the Eir mobile network as they fully support my family of handsets and have not only WiFi calling but text messaging also... Smiley Sad

Get the finger out Vodafone... Smiley Sad or I'm gone... !! Smiley Sad

I'd agree. I even heard rumours of a soft launch a few months back but nothing since.

Crazy launching a new service for just two phones... I hope that enough customers can put pressure on Vodafone Ireland to roll out the service for iPhone iOS users asap.

And what of S9 (and S10 users soon)? Funny launching it on an S8 first.

Hi there,

 

We will be enabling more handsets to support WiFi calling over the coming months, I'd advise keeping an eye on the website for further updates: https://n.vodafone.ie/support/bill-pay-hub/bill-pay/wi-fi-calling.html

 

I have passed your comments over to the relevant team

I have it on my Note 8 since yesterday's update to Pie and One UI and February security patch so other top end handsets on bill pay must be just around the corner for it too, was about time though, it's been available elsewhere for so long now

I really hope so. No mobile signal where I live inside or outside the home and Vodafone don’t support the SureSignal device anymore, so really need this as soon as possible.

Try connecting it to iTunes to see if there's any updates available or see if there's any updates available to your carrier settings on your phone as it may be a soft launch.

WiFi calling now available on iPhone I have it activated on my XS Max for anyone interested. Only thing is it doesn’t say WiFi calling on phone like it does on Wir WiFi calling. But the option is on the phone to activate it.

Snap... I saw a Carrier update appear on my iPhone 8 Plus just yesterday and I couldn’t believe it. Wi-Fi calling was finally here, but when I did a test at home from my phone using Wi-Fi calling to my home landline the audio quality was soo poor and almost inaudible.... anyone else have a similar issue ? Or is the audio quality excellent.

I have 300MB Eir FTTH broadband so that’s super fast, so I can’t understand why the audio quality has been so bad.

It also takes a long time from punching the in the phone number to get the call to the destination number.

Any comments or feedback much appreciatedSmiley Happy

Yes I made a call myself it doesn’t sound like the HD call I found the quality not as good as on the 4G

I called official Vodafone Tech support and after being past from pillar to post I finally spoke with a Vodafone Business Support person, who claimed that even though I received a Carrier update to enable WiFi calling over the weekend... that my account had not yet been moved over to the new WiFi Calling Service System and they had no timeline for me as to when this would happen.

Sounds totally stupid to enable my handset to make WiFi Calling calls... but then explain that my account is not capable of the service.

I'm a Vodafone Business user with no mobile signal outside my home or inside my home (only with SureSignal), and with SureSignal no longer supported by Vodafone... I asked for priority for my Account to be made active... but of course, it was explained to me that would not be possible... as they don't know themselves and that is a slow and phased release.

Can someone else from Vodafone Business Support help me...?

While the link says the S10 supports it I'm not seeing the WiFi calling option on the S10. Thoughts?
