Thanks for your note. I have an unlocked T Mobile brand Note 8, using Mint Sim sim card, which uses the T Mobile network. Since doing the Oreo update, the Wifi calling feature is not available on the phone, which was previously available. I have called TMobile about the issue and they won't assist me because I'm not a direct client of them. I called my provider and they promised to inform the issue to T Mobile. We should demand from Samsung & the Carriers for the future, to inform their clients of the pros & cons of an operational system update so that in advance we know the consequences of downloading an update....

Are you sure it was there before the update? I was told the factory note 8 does not have wifi calling. But I just found it on mine. Hit the phone icon, the 3 dots, settings, and scroll to the bottom.

My phone is a T Mobile branded and I'm sure I was able to use wifi calling feature before the Oreo update. I checked up you recommendation as to how to look for this feature accessing it thru the phone icon, but no, it's not there.

no.. i m just expecting once OneUI Pie updated this issue can be auto resolved though chance are very low. 

 

I also tried with one t-mobile dead sim card, interesting is as long as it's T-mo sim card wifi-calling option is avaialbe.  i am pretty sure T-mobile teamed up with Samsung did something on software level to check  sim card number whether it's t-mobile or not... if not,  well then not give you an option for wifi calling. at least from what i tested this is how it is. very regret i unlock my phone, wifi-call feature is too important to me rather than unlock and swich another carrier.
