Have you gone into settings>connections>advanced calling>and see if you can turn off wifi calling if it is on? I have mine off. I did get the notification after update too but it went away when I clicked on it and hit cancel when it was asking me to update my address. I'm sure you probably tried clearing in from pull down screen so did restart your phone by chance?

Wifi calling is the one of the great features. Why do you want to disable it?

Wi-Fi calling is OK if you need it because of a poor signal and you have a strong, stable Wi-Fi and you don't mind leaving your GPS on all the time to confirm your location. Mostly it is not needed.

I don't understand why I now have to be constantly bugged to turn it on.

Turned it on, turned it off, message went away for me.

Weird question. My coworker and I both have the note 8 with the samsung led case. Since the update, when the case is closed it shows the icon for texts and whatever keep displaying even if the notification is cleared. The only way to get them to go away is to remove the case or restart the phone. Anyone else experiencing this?

I had to disable WiFi calling with bk disabler nothing else would work it would say would you like to turn on and I would hit it and after a couple of minutes it would say try again could not activate so so many times I said screw it ill just disable it
