Hi @14tod 

 

This is the official Vodafone UK  Calling Over Wi-Fi support Page. 

wi-fi-calling. 

It shows the eligible phone's that can use the feature. That said I've also seen posts where people have got this feature activated even when the particular phone model is not showing yet available  !

This may help.

Calling Over WiFi Set up. Ask the agent to force the phone via sending an OTA configuration update that should provision your phone for Calling Over WiFi. 


"Register for Vodafone Wi-Fi Calling

My only guess is because its not officially out yet perhaps they will be an update in the coming weeks, I could be wrong though just thought, glad your enjoying the phone, I don't dare try a foldable yet, would love to know what the battery life is like though

Wi-Fi calling is a Network feature, so you would need to contact them to ensure it's activated on your account and on their software.

 

Once they've confirmed any changes, do a quick reboot on your phone. To do this press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons on your phone. This may also take a screenshot, but keep holding on and it will restart. Then head to Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi Calling > Toggle on.

Hi @DMT90865 

Calling Over Wi-Fi is a network driven feature.

It would only typically appear an an option to use if your chosen Network allows this phone as an eligible model.

Have a look on your Network's Support Page and speak to them so see if they do support it and if so they'll have a step by step process to turn it on in your account.

This is generally achieved via an Over the Air configuration text and or looking in your Network App.
