    Hi

    Can anyone point to the latest carrier free firmwares where Wifi calling was still enabled?

    I am particularly interested in that one for PRD-...-041, running currently 911 as per December update.

    Thankfully

    Rogers using ABL911. Any later version including the Rogers ABM version removed/blocked this functionality.

    I am still using ABA044 too because of wifi calling. I could tell you I had just come back from Canada and my WFC did not work there, only in US-kept getting "error code" message when trying to get it to work. I wonder if we are missing out on camera updates, if the camera is that much better with the latest versions??

    Are you on T-Mobile like me? I wonder if they block WiFi calling out of the US.

    Yup TMo here too. Have you used Digits app? It works just like WFC in airplane mode, allowing texts and calls on wifi. The only thing I dont know how to fix is contact names dont show up, only the phone #s

    Thank you for confirming it. Any major issue of that specific firmware? What carrier are you using ?

    That is strange ... running Dec upgrade as well but in Europe and wifi calling seems to be disabled. Local provider told me they cannot do anything as it is disabled on phone.

    I am using T-Mobile and absolutely no issues. I may never upgrade until Blackberry Mobile re-enables WiFi Calling on the latest firmware. I spoke to a high level support person at T-Mobile and he confirmed it is all on Blackberry Mobile. If T-Mobile did not want Wifi calling to work they can disable it on their end so it is confirmed this was a Blackberry Mobile decision.

    there is a very complex way to get it working on any build but it is not universal and still requires the modem from ABA044 for it to work. Hopefully BBMO fixes it in future builds.

    it might be good to know it as we might keep the phone up to date on android/os level while only modem is older. any link you could provide? thank you

    If I am on Tmobile, doesn't Digits basically do the same thing as wifi calling? you just do it through the Digits app instead of the phone app?

    Yes. I have wifi-calling on my Motion, but Digits works just as well.
