somebody can tell me how can activate wif i calling in my P20 pro?

I'm using a Huawei P20 (not the Pro)

I'm using WhatsApp for wi-fi calling.


Like many, (some with different phones), there is no option to goto "phone -- settings - call settings - allow wifiw calling".(or whatever sequence we're used to using). So I thought it wasn't possible to make wi-fi call's.


However, when replying to a text message from my sister in Rio, I thought "what-heck I'll just hit the call button within the app and see what happens"


So I did and it worked like a charm!!


It seems like it may not be necessary to pre-setup wi-fi calling within the phone system.- as the app (WhatsApp) will handle it by itself? 


It worked for me - give it a try.

Good luck.





Hello Geoclam,


  Welcome to the community!


  I'm glad you were able to call your sister in Rio. I assume you meant replying to a Whatsapp message and not a text message, though?


  Wifi-calling using an app (ie WhatsApp or Skype, etc) is different from the Wifi-calling to which the OP referred. Any phone with Wifi-capabilities can use an app to make Wifi-calls and video calls. There are no phone settings which need to be enabled. Those calls are generally connected entirely via the internet. On the other hand, the Wifi-calling feature routes through the mobile networks before connecting to the other party (see graphic here) -- no app required. It is the access to the gateway which needs to be provisioned.


  As far as I am aware, the Huawei phones are still not listed as being network Wifi-calling compatible.


Hope this helps Smiley

Open the Android settings Navigate to "Wireless & Networks" Go to "Call Settings" Select "WiFi Calling" and activate the option with the knob - done! You can now use the WiFi calling feature of your Huawei P20 Pro smartphone.

There's no Wi-Fi calling option in the call settings menu of the P20 Pro. Where are you getting this information from? 


Hello @RafaM,


Welcome to the community!


You can get more info about Fido's WiFi calling here.


Edit: Fido's website says this phone has no WiFi calling. Fido will need to clarify this. 

Hey @RafaM


@KAPABLE-K is right. Unfortunately, the WI-FI Calling won't work for this phone.


You can find all of our compatible phones on the Community here.


Hope this helps.
