Will the s8 have wifi calling if bought elsewhere?

Will the s8 have wifi calling if bought elsewhere? CPW has a nice deal where you get free speakers with the phone, but EE has not updated its list of phones that have wifi calling enabled for all versions.

Hi @encee

Just to confirm WiFi Calling will be available on both direct & indirect versions of the Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus.

Thanks - Karen Smiley Happy

Hi @encee If you take a look at this thread https://community.ee.co.uk/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/android/page/2/thread-id/34907

 

@Lee_H a community staff member is finding out for us.

 

I would personally say that as is the case with the s7 wifi calling will work on a non EE device I doubt 4G calling will though.

 

although if it doesn't you can always flash EE software to the phone

Does flashing official software void my warranty? Did some reading around and there is a whole bunch of mixed responses. Would that also mean I get 4g calling or would it only solve wifi calling.

Thanks!

It will not void warranty at all. And you will get wifi call option enabled. Im not sure about VoLTE but it wasnt available since ive had samsung device last time.

@encee Flashing it with EE software has no affect on warranty and will enable 4G calling wifi calling will be supported on any firmware.

 

Personally I will be flashing it to EE software as I want 4G calling
