All of these devices support 4G Calling if they are bought directly from us. If you are using a device that was bought from another network, or SIM free, we cannot guarantee that it will support our 4G Calling service. If your supported device doesn’t have the 4G Calling option available, make sure you have updated the software to the latest version and reboot your device.
My assumptions regarding the new VF link were incorrect.
5G arrives for Virgin Media mobile customers in 100 places across the UK thanks to Vodafone UK partnership.
Virgin Media’s mobile customers can now take advantage of 5G in 100 locations across the UK thanks to the company’s partnership with Vodafone UK, firstannouncedin 2019.
Any Virgin Media mobile customer who upgrades to 5G will receive all of their mobile connectivity from Vodafone’sUK network. Nothing changes for new and current Virgin Media mobile customers on 4G plans whose mobile network will continue to be provided by BT/EE until 31 December 2021.
Why did the tech tell me I needed a new SIM then, I already had a purple one.
Maybe I should move to one of the 100 locations with a 5G mast and get a 5G plan.
Use at your own risk so to say, but it will either do it or just ignore the key combination. Ensure you are using the Google Phone app not a custom one as doesn't work with custom apps/skins that operatis like Huwawei often use. The key combinations simply enable the UI - if it doesn't work you can still toggle it off in the Phone UI from that point. The key combinations just get the phone to forcibly expose the Ui for Wifi Calling and VoLTE options.
I have already ordered a 5G SIM from VM, so I can connect to the Vodafone network (as per the info from the Vodafone website, thank you VM). I guessed it worth a try.
I had already concluded that VM were either clueless about the issues or just not telling the whole story, as per their email fiasco (s) 🤐.
'No data was lost during the migration from Google servers to some company in the US which was then transferred to some company in Europe' - maybe just 'shared' rather than lost 😠 the English language is a most useful tool.
I'm still baffled as to why the Virgin tech sent me a new sim, on the packet it said 4G ready so I assume only connects to the old EE network.
