Hi @Community!

 

Just wanted to update this older thread. 

 

Wi-Fi Calling is currently available with iPhone 5c/5s and above with iOS 9.0 or above. It is also available with the following Android phones purchased from Fido:

 

-LG G4 and LG G5 with Android 6.0 or above

-Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with Android 6.0.1 or above

-Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge with Android 6.0.1 or above

 

It does not work with UMA Hotpsot and TeleTypewrite. 

 

Hope this helps! Very_Happy

Hello 10yearfido,

 

The iPhone is not a Fido Wifi calling compatible phone.

 

The only phone that we currently offer that is compatible with the Fido Wifi Calling service is the Blackberry Curve.

I use my iPhone for Skype voice and video calls all the time. 

 

 Fido used to offer a service called FidoUno that used a UMA technology  (UMA= Unlicensed Mobile Access).  If you had a phone with the same technology (Nokia 6301) you could use a Wi-Fi network connection to make phone calls.  The phone would treat the Wi-Fi in exactly the same way it would treat a cell phone radio tower.  As far as I know Fido decommissioned their UMA servers.

Hello Agent237,

 

Please note that FidoUno has become what we now called Fido Wifi Calling and is still an active service.

Is Fido Wi-Fi Calling still based on Unlicensed Mobile Access Technology (UMA)?
