CraigY:

 

I contacted Vodafone customer support (Tech Guru's) and they said the reason the V3 Sure Signal is no longer being sold is because a new one is coming out soon.  Anyone know when the launch date is?

 

 

 

 

I've been told by someone at Vodafone that they aren't going to be getting anymore because they are preparing for wifi calling as the "Replacement" .. we had a few units on back order for months which eventually got cancelled.

 

porting your number over to 2degrees is probably your best option at this stage as they support wifi calling, just be sure to double check that your handset supports this functionality before switching !

 

A shame Vodafone dont have a stop gap solution

I transferred my cellphone # to 2Degrees and just now tried out the WiFi Calling function on my home network using an iPhone 6 .. worked perfectly.  I did upgrade to iOS 3.1 first though.  Switchover was easy, 2Degrees setup the account in store, inserted the new sim card, arranged for the Vodafone # to be ported over to 2Degrees, and then when I got home I switched on WiFi Calling .. and within a few seconds it was all connected and running.  In my system the iPhone 6 bluetooths to a Uniden house system consisting of 4 portable phones and one amplifier.  So when a call comes in over the wifi to the cellphone, it is routed to the Uniden system and all the house phones ring.  And vice versa, picking up any portable phone I can call a number and it bluetooths to the iPhone which then uses WiFi calling to connect to 2Degrees.  Goodbye Sure Signal.

 

Hopefully one day Vodafone and Spark will both adopt WiFi calling.

Another good thing about Wi-Fi calling is free roaming!
