Thread: Vodacom activates WiFi calling for iPhone?

  1. #1

    Default Vodacom activates WiFi calling for iPhone?

    Hi,

    My iPhone 6 and 7 got a carrier update today and now I see there is a wifi calling option in settings, but even when switched on it doesn't show the wifi calling icon?

    So it likely needs to be activated? Any idea how's

    Ok figured it out...once u did the carrier settings update you need to go enable wifi calling and reboot your fone. When it connects back to wifi you wil see the VoWIFI icon on your iphone

    That didn't work for me, are you contact or prepaid? Did you just switch off and on?

    Okay, so then will have to wait for some feedback from Ockie because something obviously has to be done different for prepaid then.

    I got a carrier update a while back as well, but no wifi calling in menu (so not sure if that was for wifi calling). Did a restart just now and played around in settings for a while. Magically got another carrier update popup while in settings and accepted.

    Now the wifi calling option is visible and can be enabled, weird. Anyway I was in the Phone settings if that helps when the carrier update popped up. Prepaid, 6s.

    The one from a few weeks back was for VoLTE, this new one is for VoWiFi. You can manually start the upgrade by going into settings > general > about.

    It isn't a iOS update, rather a vodacom carrier update.
