It's  a pity that WiFi calling couldn't be done the way of an app rather than a software load on  high end 2Degrees sold phones..

I disagree on this one, I've used various apps for wifi calling and whilst some are functional they have always been a bit of a pain. Would much prefer the capability was "native" to the OS of my phone and didn't have any friction to use. Sure, having the option via an app e.g. a SIP client would be great, but I can't see a carrier enabling that.

I don't agree with this and the carrier should control it

Concur. There are enough SIP clients around to nuke batteries, and theres no way 2D or Android will cede complete control so better for carrier to control in the core and not force the edge device to do the work.

Well  a client would have been great this week where I was I only had WiFi and no cell coverage. Ended up using Whatsapp  but that only works  if the other user has it and my 2Talk client app  doesn't seem to work on WiFi only on   cell data. Will have to have a closer look at that one

No way. It's way better to have it done by the service provider, and it will probably work on all future mid-to-high end phones. So in 5 years, 90% of the market will have it enabled.

 

I know that on iOS you can't replace the default phone app with something else, so that would be a non-starter too.

I don't like the idea of an app, but, my android phone has both a sip client and wifi calling as part of the native android os (no app required). It would be nice to be able to use that (though, I'm not on 2 degrees so wouldn't be able to anyway).

Good to see the Huawei Nova 3i supports Wi-Fi calling as shown on the 2degrees tech specs page for the handset but not listed on the Wi-Fi calling supported list

I presume OnePlus phones (not sold through 2degrees) will never receive wifi calling?

Didn't want to start a new thread, just switched to 2degrees and enabled wifi calling on my iPhone. Works great, clarity of the call was awesome according to my wife.

 

Anyway, will 2degrees support wifi calling on other devices, different from the continuity feature, which would allow you to make a wifi call on your iPad even if your phone was off? AT&T call it NumberSync.

 

Example:

 

If your carrier supports it, you can give any device on your iCloud account the ability to make and receive calls — even when your iPhone isn't nearby.

 

     

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap Phone > Wi-Fi Calling.
  3. If available for your carrier, select Add Wi-Fi Calling for Other Devices.
  4.  

    A Safari WebView will prompt you to set up sync for your other devices. After you're finished, you should get alerts on your other devices confirming availability for Wi-Fi calling.

@dfnt This is thread is about Wi-Fi calling offered by 2degrees not the other option you are talking about
