Re: When will 4G calling be available on S7 Edge not purchased from EE?

Flashed the EE EVR firmware this evening and all looks good so far.

 

No major noticeable difference on first impressions - Icons may be slightly larger???

 

Now have WiFi calling and 4G calling.

 

Thanks to Northerner for starting the ball rolling and to BrendonH for keeping up the encouragement.

Hi, 

 

They already are, but its firmware specific. (EE or BTU). 

 

Dial *#1234# and post the three sets of code. 

 

Thanks,

Your firmware is french (OXA) so you will not have the option. All is not lost as you can install BTU firmware via sams mobile and it then be available.

That's interesting - French!? Purchased from Mobile Phones Direct in UK.

 

I'll look at Sams mobile for the BTU.

 

What's the difference between BTU and XEU?

 

Many thanks for the help

Sorry - I think I answered my own question - XEU = Ireland

Many 3rd party sellers get their stock from the EU

Now slightly confused!

 

Latest BTU on Sams mobile has same PDA and CSC codes as my current firmware.

Re: When will 4G calling be available on S7 Edge not purchased from EE?

Can't find any ref to OXA being French. I think my S7 Edge is UK (BTU) and up to date.

 

Perhaps when EE say 4G calling is only supported on S7 Edge phones purchased through them means the fimware needs to be (EE)(EVR)?

 

Anybody tried this?

Have you asked EE to activate it on your account?

 

When you open phone app. Press the 3 dots in top right corner and then settings.

 

Scroll to bottom the Wi-Fi setting option is normally there. Make sure it is enabled.

Re: When will 4G calling be available on S7 Edge not purchased from EE?

WiFi calling is fine - up and running. It's 4G Calling (VoLTE) that I'm looking to set up.

 

EE have a published list of phones that can be activated (iPhones 6 etc) and Android phones that support it (but don't need activation).

 

The S7 Edge and others are listed as supported but only if supplied through EE. Presumably that's the firmware?

 

My original enquiry was to find out if anyone new of a date when the Samsung firmware would support it. Hence my current question as to whether it's just a case of using the (EE) (EVR) firmware?

Ah ok. Sorry.

 

Yes 4G calling is only available of purchased direct from EE 

 

Or you can flash the EVR firmware.

EVE firmware is no different to BTU. EE doesn' even add a splash screen on start up.

Thanks Brendon

 

That sounds encouraging.

 

Do I just use Odin with the firmware? Just picking up on "pit" files - not familier with them yet - do I need to get the correct one from Sams mobile - fast track info please 😉

 

Thanks again
