Google Pixel 2

Just got announced today.

Does Fido know if it'll support VoLTE and WiFi calling on Fido yet?

It also uses eSIM. Wonder how that'll work with registration

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately being a customer for over 10 years means absolutely nothing. I will be posting to a carrier who doesn't use such underhanded tactics instead.

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hi,

 

I have a Pixel 2 that was purchased directly from the Google store.

 

Something has changed on the back end recently.  I noticed that VoLTE started to work.  I went to my settings and turned on WiFi calling and this time it let me complete the registration process.

Re: Google Pixel 2

Yes, Android 8.1 had the WiFi calling feature, but did not work on any Google store purchased Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL until recently.

 

See the other posts in this thread where Kenjuta asks if Google store bought Pixel 2s will get WiFi Calling and VoLTE (http://forums.fido.ca/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/Smartphones/message-id/34406/highlight/true#...) and the response (http://forums.fido.ca/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/Smartphones/message-id/34407/highlight/true#...)

 

And another post (http://forums.fido.ca/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/Smartphones/message-id/35768/highlight/true#...) indicating that the phone needs to be purchased from Fido.

Re: Google Pixel 2

We're happy to hear that it's working for you!

 

The reality is that we're only able to guarantee that any of the services we offer will work on devices purchased from Fido.

Heyho PixelTeam Fido!

 

Cool things to chew on!

 

[---]WiFi calling came with Oreo 8.1.0. and you should all have access to it by now!

[---] VoLTE is available to all of us on postpaid pulse plan / device enabled Clik this Fido link to Find out all details VoLTE

VoLTE doesn't specify encryption mode though. FYI Google Duo as E2E and no slow down!
