    HI all

    Just moved TMobile and was thinking I would get WIFI calling on the V20 but NOOOOOOOOO the Nugut 7.0 does not have that feature anymore, bastards at google!!!!!!!

    What other options are there for a app for wifi calling?

    My sons V10 has it because he is on 6.0 MM

    I got 2 lines unlimited everything for $55.00 under their 55 and over plan they just came out with yesterday (Wednesday) and I was paying $59.54 go pro plan with att all in. Sweet

    Are you saying you moved your V20 from another carrier to T Mobile. If that's what you meant that is the reason it doesn't work. It has nothing to do with Nougat...that is a carrier feature and each model has slightly different software to enable and support it.

    T-Mo here. V20 absolutely has WiFi calling. Not sure what details you leaving out but it is definitely available on this phone and carrier.

    I am attempting to enable Wifi-Calling on my US996, which has the feature listed, but AT&T wants me to enable "Enhanced LTE Service" from the Settings>Networks>More page, but I don't see it.
    How does one enable this in the absence of the menu item? I used QuickShortcutMaker to find a hidden menu for LTE services, but the toast message says "Sorry. You cannot launch this activity from this app because it requires some additional permissions to launch."

    You can't. You need to be using there V20 which has it built into the settings. Why don't you have their model? You probably have a Verizon phone unlocked don't you? Once you put in the sim card it's At&t's rules

    Nougat has nothing to do with it. It was modified to be compatible with AT&T. You can do WI-FI calling with What's App as long as the person you are calling has it.

    Honestly, why do you even need it if you have unlimited calling/everything. I have a Verizon V20 and had nothing but problems and poor call quality DUE TO wifi calling. Once I disabled it, everything works great.

    Oh well I can still use my BBM for wifi calling and my Signal app for wifi calling to my contacts.
    I guess having a unlocked phone is not always best especially getting OS and security patch updates

    Because it isn't about saving minutes and whatnot... It's about having signal.

    If you have a cell signal sure all is well but if you aren't in an area with cell but have wifi.. well.. yeah.

    My brother's house gets a poor signal. My friend's summer cabin has no signal.
    Its great for use when you are staying at a resort in a foreign country and they have WIFI so that you can make calls.
    It depends on your lifestyle and its one of the reasons I don't buy unlocked.

    Yeah, it's a shame it's done this way, but every carrier has a slightly different protocol for handing calls off between cell and WiFi, and their branded phones have the correct firmware baked in to support their implementation of WiFi calling.

    I had the same thing with my AT&T Note 4 when I used Mint (T-Mobile MVNO) for a while. No WiFi calling. Which wasn't good because signal inside my rural, aluminum-sided house is basically nonexistent unless you are near the repeater or at a window facing a cell tower.

    I get no signal at all here since I live in the woods, so that's why I switched to Verizon last fall, for the Wi-Fi calling and texting.

    For me, on Verizon, Wifi calling seemed like more trouble than it was worth. I didn't think of the situations with poor signal as wifi calling being an alternative tho. I used to use a Verizon supplied 3G repeater as my signal outside my house was great but inside was almost nonexistent. Verizon attributed it to the foil backed insulation attenuating the signal. Same for Wifi - great inside but nil outside. Signal repeater din;t help much.

    Turning off wifi calling and ultimately wifi during calls for me made a huge difference in my overall call quality.
