wifi calling with non EE branded phones

Which handsets if any will work with WiFi calling if they are purchased sim free, i.e. not bought direct from EE.

 

Just renewed my contract and gone sim only, trying to weigh up my options for a new phone!

 

Thanks all

OnePLus 5 works fine with EE wifi calling. But unless EE sell it, they won't say they support it

Re: wifi calling with non EE branded phones

I have a EE contract but have had to replace the EE samsung S7 with one i have bought myself due to damaging the EE phone.

The new S7 I discovered does not have wifi calling function on it. I have been informed by the vendor that this is something only available from EE sourced phones.

Who is right ?

I have very poor EE coverage in my home area and wifi calling is essential.

@davidmear01   I believe the S8 onwards doesn’t have to come from EE as it’s already built in the devices software unfortunately on the S7 it has to have EE firmware on it. 

 

@BrendonH can confirm this

Currently it won't work. But it should as soon as the phone updates to Oreo 8.0. Which is due out soon on the S7

My S7 Edge had WiFi calling when on Nougat and it's from Carphone Warehouse.

Re: wifi calling with non EE branded phones

It's not a replacement. I got it from CPW just over two years ago and switched to sim only in February.

Depends where they purchased.
