Getting Volte/VoWifi to work on OnePlus 7 Pro

Hello!

I have a Oneplus 7 pro. This is not a "Fido Supported Device". However, VoLTE and VoWiFi Does work!

I am able to get these features to work by first provisioning the service in a supported fido device (Tested w/ an Iphone and Pixel5) by inserting my Sim card and waiting for volte/vowifi to start working. Then by transfering the sim card back.

 

VoLTE and VoWiFi then works in the Oneplus 7 pro for approximately 10m. After which It appears Fido has deprovisioned these features and taken them away from me.

 

Is it possible someone at Fido could register my Oneplus 7 pro's IMEI as a Fido device, or as a Pixel5?

Thank you!

Bumping this back up as its been a couple weeks. Is there anything Fido can do to help me?
Thanks!

Hey @bjarrett!

 

On our end, as it's a grey market device and not a Fido phone, we're unable to provision it for those services. We're not able to guarantee the VoLTE service on non-Fido phones and Wi-Fi calling is only available on Fido phones.

 

I do hope that clears it up.

That's really dissaponting. I've been a Fido customer for over 10 years. This kind of policy feels very anti-consumer. To be intentionally limiting service availibility to non-fido devices. It's one thing to not provide support to devices Fido does not sell. I understand that. It's another thing entirely to intentionally limit service availibility to 3rd party devices.


I hope you guys re-evaluate these policies. Truely dissapointing.

I have filed a complaint.

Thanks Cawtau,

 

However that was not very helpful.
I would really love it if Tier 3 technicial who actually works for Fido took a look at this. That would be awesome.
Its clear these features are working on this device until Fido discovers its not a "Supported" device at which point they are taken away. This is proven by the fact that it works for 10 minutes after a sim card swap from a "Supported" device as shown in the screenshots in the OP.
All I am asking for is that you let me have it for longer than 10 minutes. Ideally permanently Smiley

Hello Bjarrett,

  As mentioned in your other thread, Fido does not sell OnePlus devices. In addition, they also do not keep a whitelist of devices so they would not be able to register that phone as a Fido device.

 

  The IMEI provides a certain amount of information about the device including brand and model of the device (see here). So no, they cannot register that device as a different brand or model.

 

Hope this helps 😀

 

Cheers
