Re: Wifi calling

Yep, time to go to android Q I reckon. A bit fiddly as I'm on a custom rom that isn't on Q yet unless I go to another custom Q base first.

Maybe time for a bit of googling too.

Probably with pointing out that the help site says you need one of the new Virgin Media SIMs as well as a compatible device.

The older EE related SIMs don't work for WiFi Calling

Re: Wifi calling

I just called up

I have the option on my phone  s9+ on Android 10 but as it's a red sim it wont work. A purple sim is on it's way to me. So happy Virgin have done this

Re: Wifi calling

This is amazing news 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
I’d imagine that iOS will quickly follow, maybe on the next software update? So does this mean 4G calling is also available? It will definitely be a game changer for VM if they have both of these!

I must admit though, I am kinda surprised that they have introduced these now, after all this time, and not far from when they’re changing from EE to VF..

Re: Wifi calling

I'm hoping iOS will be added soon. I switched from Three to Virgin yesterday and wasn't aware that WiFi calling was not an option on Virgin.

At home I now have a worse signal than I used to have on Three and no option for Wifi Calling! I might have to ring and see if I can cancel this new contract as I can't use my phone for calls/texts at home!

Re: Wifi calling

Hi 

I have a Samsung S9+ on Android 10

I have the option to enable Wifi calling but it doesn't work. Can I ask what colour Sim I should have. I have the red sim.

I called and was told that wifi calling doesn't exist with virgin media and that I have the latest sim.

 

So I'm very confused. Could a moderator help me?
