Came to ask this
Checked both my MTN phones (Nokia 8 Sirocco and Samsung A51) neither have VOWiFI active :(
Tested on 3 different phones in my household (2 Samsung and a Huawei p30 lite). Nothing here as well. Though telkom shows volte/vowifi with no issue

Not working on my Samsung Note10+ either. Cell C Sim does show VoWifi, but MTN just VoLTE.

Confirmed on MTN.
My Cell C sim no longer gets VoWiFi, where it used to. I'm not on wifi right now.
Here is a snip from my call list, sim 1 is mtn and sim 2 is cell c which I only use for data.

On a separate topic, I see MTN has released a new app for iOS and Android. I’m on the US store for Apple, and if someone here works for MTN, please could I request they they publish the app as globally available. Can’t download it currently.

No, but call center seems to be aware of what it is.. A while back was trying to request to become part of their trial- via MTN employees who are heading it up (according to their LinkedIn profiles atleast) but no luck

Anyone managed to get it activated via support?

Trying my best to activate VoLTE Aka HD voice with no success. iPhone 7 with it enabled but calls still fall back to 3G.

I had intermittent issue like that with my iPhone 7plus. Restarts usually resolved it

Asked MTN on facebook messenger to activate wifi calling on my Galaxy S9. I have a ticket open for about a week now. Said it is has been escalated to their tech team. Well, it is not a flat out "no, we don't support it" so I will report back with the outcome...

I'm told by MTN that they support wifi calling and just that the device needs to be support it and the setting has to switched on. Went over hd calling as well as volte and still persists that wifi calling is active on the mtn network. Apologies @Voldemort , is the above true?
