I just had an unlocked one and didn't have the option.

 

I switched for a branded one in canada.

Re: Unlocked phones and WiFi calling capabilities

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Fully unlocked s9+ purchased directly from Samsung - Carrier AT&T. No VVM unless you download APK, no HD voice or wi-fi calling.  I knew I was't going to get HD voice or wifi but not VVM. Doesn't matter, fixed with an APK.

 

Neighbor has same unlocked device, but T-Mo. Wifi calling works ok.  He said calls drop about  40% of the time.  That's unacceptable to me.  I don't necessarily blame the device I think its the technology.  I've seen it work well and fail.  Depends on your location and what kind of cell coverage you have.

DONE WITH SAMSUNG - SOLD THE S9(minus) - YOU GUYS ARE LIARS!

A  screenshot of what?   The fully unlocked version of the phone does not support HD voice or Wi-Fi calling if AT&T is your carrier.

I believe they were asking for a screenshot from the person above that says they have the option in settings on their unlocked phone.

Hi,

He said he purchased the unlocked version, and AT&T is his carrier.  There is no wi-fi option.  It's not supported.  I have the same device and carrier. There is no menu or setting for this feature.  It's not supported in the unlocked variant.

I have a note 8 and the option is not available. I did down load the app and it just gives me an error pop up. My carrier is US Cellular.

Seems like it is completely dependent on carrier. I purchased the s9+ unlocked from best buy. I was with Verzion at that time. A wifi calling setting was no where on the phone. There was also no visual voicemail. I made the switch to tmobile last week and as soon as i put the sim card in i got a wifi calling notification an the option is now there. I also have tmobile visual voicemail.
