Has anyone been able to get VoLTE to work?

I have WiFi calling working on my pixel 3 but when WiFi disconnects the call doesn't handoff to the mobile network and just drops.


Anyon else got it working?

Just received my bonus data this morning, took 7 days, left the sim in the cheap flip phone the whole time. Time to find a dual sim phone!

Sorry, here's a direct link.

TL;DR - One-month deposit required, then monthly pay-as-you-go. Monthly rate will range between $32.40 - $47.25 per month (dependent on # of members in group).

It's official, now into my third month of service and all my extra bonus data they messed with is gone. I'm now back to my standard 17 gig bonus with 8 plus 8 gig rollover.

This 33 gigs really sucks compared to 48.

LOL.

I was in NYC this pass week and everything was great. Using the phone for GPS, keeping in contact with our group and messaging friends while there.

It was great not having to worry about looking for wifi to use my phone.

This is so true. Our family travels a lot and now all of them use my phone as a hotspot without me worrying about how much data has been consumed

Especially if you have more than one line... Only thing that makes me nervous is Rogers spotty rural coverage. Especially in the West. BC roadtrips will be a lot of long silences. That's why I didn't move my other family members and kept them on the $40 8GB Koodo plan.

Where Rogers goes down. Telus picks up. And with WiFi calling you can stay connected everywhere.

That is where my Fido 3GB ($0 with unlimited usage until Mar2020) comes in. I also find Rogers coverage spotty in some areas but with Fido and its extended coverage, I always am connected and the family is happy. Although I do not understand why Fido and Rogers (sister companies) are so different in area coverage.

Rogers/Fido have the exact same coverage. At least the map seems to show.

They're both pretty spotty especially if you live and travel in a AB/SK or even BC. In SK, extended coverage is limited to 3G.

But that’s not a fair comparison! The extended coverage with Fido/Rogers is actually the Bell and TELUS network. Rogers and Fido are the same — both access the Bell & TELUS network.

But AT&T Prepaid does NOT have extended coverage. You only access the Rogers/Fido network.

Correct. Fido is simply “Rogers 2”.
TELUS: Unlimited Canada-wide Talk, Text and 15+10 GB Data
Koodo: Unlimited Canada-wide Talk, Text and 8+9 GB Data
