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

Re: Google Pixel 2

Also having issues with this. I have the latest 8.1 update and the ability to turn on volte and wifi calling but getting the same errors. Can someone help me please? I guess I am also not part of the fido whitelist. Any way to get on it yet?

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hey @prozess, did you purchase your phone from Fido or Rogers?

Re: Google Pixel 2

No it wasn't. But I have the latest Android 8.1 update with the same exact build number as every other Rogers and fido pixel 2. There should be nothing else that is configurable to be "optimized" for for Fido's wifi calling and volte other than my IMEI not being on your list. Is there a way to fix that?

Unfortunately not. For the moment, Wi-Fi Calling will only work on devices purchased from Fido or Rogers. I'll be sure to update this thread if that changes!

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!
