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.

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.

i have not tried this.

"

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?

Re: P20 pro wifi calling

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.

Re: P20 pro wifi calling

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

 

Cheers
