VoLTE + WIFI Calling


Userlevel 5
It would be great if Koodo offered VoLTE + WIFI calling similarly to what the U.S. carriers are starting to over. This could be beneficial for customers on devices that support this (i.e. Galaxy S5, iPhone 6) when in areas with spotty reception or travelling oversea. I also believe that this is supposedly able to help with battery life on these devices as well.

Voice over LTE is now supported on Koodo on iPhone's that support LTE with the release of Carrier update 19.0.

The phone now supports VoLTE, but Koodo does not provide the service yet, and there have been no announcements made regarding when they will do so.

VoLTE devices are locked to Koodo, right? I got a SIM-FREE one from U.S.A. It doesn't really support VoLTE. It is A1633 with IOS 9.0.2. In the menu of Data and Voice, there is only a selection of LTE/3G/2G. I guess APPLE will probably release an update with the support of VoLTE in the future for all SIM-FREE iPhone 6/s/plus. Let's wait and see what happens.
Has any progress been made on this? Does Telus/Koodo have [i]any plans to implement VoLTE in the future? And/or [i]native WiFi calling?

Haven't heard of any progress. ROGERS has launched VoLTE which is also available for fido. Bell/Telus haven't announced their VoLTE release date yet.
