I could have it the wrong way around, but the firmware I flashed is G925FXXU6ERD3_G925FOJV6ERD2_XFE :)
Ah, if your phone was originally XFA (if it's written on the box) and if you flashed XFE then it would stay on XFA which is Cell C.

But I may be mistaken. The recent A5 2017 I've got from Cell C was XFA.

It states XFA on the box as received from MTN - so I flashed XFE to get the wifi calling to work. Maybe they don't stick to a specific XFX among the different phones? Or maybe it doesn't always matter?

I do find the voice quality when doing a wifi call on Cell C really, really terrible these days.

It sort of blanks out for 5-10 seconds before you can start to hear the other person again. I also use the term "hear" very liberally here since it sounds like everyone is underwater. Turning off Wifi calling and doing a normal cell call is much better quality.

I rely on wifi calling at my work place since I get absolutely no mobile signal.

Been working great for me since last year.

Quality of WiFi calling depends on the quality of your Internet connection.

I have a 1GB fibre connection in Asia, so it's not my internet.

Also get the same bad quality doing wifi calling when in South Africa on a 500MB corporate business fibre line.

Crystal clear calls on the same fibre networks with my Tmobile US sim.
