Wifi Calling on Galaxy s8

Wifi Calling on Galaxy s8

Is there a contractual reason that only Apple devices have wifi calling?


When i first started with XM i was sent a Galaxy s8 with now what i know to be the wrong CSC somehow enabled. It wasn't until i had to warranty my phone that i found out wifi calling wasn't a included feature, as i had wifi calling from day one. I have screenshots of all of the network info (APN etc) nothing is diffrent. The only diffrence is this one line in an XML file that you can't modify without rooting the phone and voiding your warranty. 

<CscFeature_Setting_SupportWifiCall>true</CscFeature_Setting_SupportWifiCall>

If this is all it takes to enable wifi calling on my device, it seems that there must be some sort of contractual reason Android devices, or atleast the galaxy s8 doesn't have this ability enabled yet. If this is the case can you provide a timeline as to when this will be enabled? I've been on the verge of jumping ship for months now specifically to get wifi calling, and feel that many of us that have stuck by you since your VERY rocky start deserve a straight foward answer.

Thank you

rstovall, I am not aware of a contractual obligation for android wiFi calling, but I can say we are expecting wiFi calling to available for Android later this year. No date specified yet, though.

I will be traveling soon and I want wifi calling just like my friends that have I phones. I know I can use Skype but that's not the point. Please get this feature as soon as possible.
