I've been with virgin mobile for a while as part of an infinity package with virgin media. I recently purchased a new phone which i have been trying to activate wi-fi calling on, device is Samsung galaxy S21 5G.
I was told originally that i needed a purple sim for this to work so i asked Virgin to send me one. New sim arrived and it is red same as my old one and wi-fi calling still does not work. I have called again to explain i was expecting a purple sim to this time be told the red sim is wi-fi calling enabled and it must be an issue with the phone.
Is someone able to give me a straight answer on this? Do i need a magic purple sim or is my phone the problem?
Thanks for the replies. Model is S21 5G and was purchased from AO.com (tried to purchase from virgin but out of stock)
Just to confirm I have turned on wi-fi calling both the ways suggested but although it let's me toggle wi-fi calling on it doesn't actually work and I don't have a WiFi calling symbol in the banner at the top of my phone.
Software version is SAOMC_SM-G991B_OMX_BTU_12_0008 BTU/BTU,BTU/EUX/BTU.
Thank you so much for your post and I'm so sorry to see you are facing this issue with WiFi calling.
I'd be more than happy to take a look into this for you. I will send you a PM now so we can investigate, please keep an eye out for the purple envelope in the top right corner of your screen alerting you to a new message.
