I'm curious how you launch a new cell service boasting the use of wifi without being able to call/text over WiFi on the Galaxy S8.  My old S7 was able to do this just fine.  I have now gone back into the past of not being able to receive calls or texts at home (where I work remotely from).  When is this going to be fixed or am I going to have to cancel this after Day 1?  Is Xfinity Mobile in the business of offering Verizon Network extenders that I can connect to my router to have a signal?  AT&T was able to do that years ago with no questions asked if your phone didnt work great at your home.

 

Was very excited to sign up for this new service - apparently assuming this is 2017 and Wifi Calling/Texting is the norm is my mistake.....

Hi TheMarf. Unfortunately due to current system limitations, we do not support Wi-Fi Calling at this time, however this feature will be coming in the future. As we launch as a New Mobile Carrier, we sincerely appreciate your patience as we develop these new features!

When you say in the future is there an ETA for that? Q4? 2018? 2020?

Apologies, I don't have a specific time frame yet, TheMarf. Once we can support it, it will be announced.
