    Default Tmo Wifi Calling Bar.

    Hello,

    I just updated to the T mobile OS. 2228. I have an unlocked T mobile Z10. Apparently I do not have the wifi calling app installed nor can I find it in BBW. Could this be because I am using the phone in Nigeria. If so, is there anyone that can send me the bar file only to download via sachesi? Please advise.

    There are one or two comments in the "T-Mobile OS 10.2.1.2228 now available!" thread that say you don't need the WiFi Calling .bar/app to enable it in that version. I'm skeptical, but haven't tried .2228 - still doing the official update to .2156, which supports WiFi Calling.

    2156 and 2228 are the same software, just using Software Version / OS Version, respectively.

    Jim if you say I do not need the bar to enable wifi calling on my. 2228 version, how is it possible to use wifi calling when the function/app itself is not on the phone?

    I'm not on T-mobile, but I guess you could try turning your radio off and try to make a phone call while on just wi-fi. It the call goes through then you're using wifi calling.

    That's what comes with the T-Mobile update. There is no newer.

    I have tried to download the link you sent me but all it does is just take me to a blank page when I click on it.

    Vj, I've tried that option already and it says I should enable mobile network to be able to make calls so i definitely do not have wifi calling yet.

    Ok Thurask, I've just downloaded the .bar file and about to install via sachesi. Fingers crossed that it works. I will let you know the outcome.

    If you've updated to 10.2.1.2228 and don't get the WFC app pushed to your phone then you might have an outdated SIM and need to contact Tmo for an updated version. Being in Nigeria shouldn't matter.

    For the record, the app does not provide WFC support. It only acts as a toggle for the OS. Installing it will not give your phone WFC capability. That feature is written into the OS itself.

    You guys should be able to see it on BlackBerry World. On the main page, select T-Mobile TOP Picks, then T-Mobile Business. You'll find the wifi calling app hiding in there.

    Modifier,

    So you are saying even though I have downloaded from app, I may still not have the wifi capability yet on my phone. Well how do I know if it's in the OS already, is there a way to know if your Sim has the capability by checking numbers or sumtin and lastly, i am the T mobile unlocked Z10 in Nigeria, not Tmo sim card.

    You would need to use the Tmobile sim card and phone number to be able to use the app as it ultimately connects thru the Tmobile network after the wi-fi connection

    You have to have a t-mobile sim, an emergency address in your t-mobile account and a wifi connection if you have the latest update. I just downloaded the update today and already had wifi calling toggle app downloaded and it was automatically working when I turned on the phone. I believe t mobile is the only carrier with wifi calling, but I could be wrong.
