Yes you would need to go to sammobile and download the firmware it would be best to get the latest EE nougat one as that will also support 4G calling but it's not on there yet as it was only released today.

 

there are a few good guides on there you will need to look up how to use Odin that's the tool for flashing

Wifi calling won't work without flashing the firmware on your phone to a uk version which involves wiping everything off the phone.

 

and can be a bit complex if you've never done it before

Thank you for the answer. Would I have to go to SamMobile? Can you advise
on the process? As I recently wiped my phone so don't have a lot stored on
it at the moment. Many thanks.
