Nobody will know until it happens unfortunately.... Is the phone capable of these features even, I haven't seen any mention of these when researching the phone before I purchased it.
If it has the capability I would expect down the line it may but it probably wouldn't be high on the list of phones to get activated with this on Koodo's end I'm sure.

Ok, thanks for the reply Paul. I did a bit of digging and I guess it's something they have in the works. Stability updates have been their number one, but according to an article I read it's something they're working on. VoLTE anyway.

The Ghost touch issue I've been experiencing lately is pretty annoying and EIS on thr camera would be a welcome fix thats for sure. Good to hear they're working on new features though as well, thanks for letting me know that I'll have to look more into it with them.

VoLTE and WiFi calling capabilities will be implemented on 2-3 devices at the time till phase II (live Beta) is over, don't expect the system to be fully functional (working for all capable devices) before Sept.

VoLTE and WiFi calling capabilities will be implemented on 2-3 devices at the time till phase II ...I thought the beta and testing was over? I think they just have to enable the features on smartphones. Hopefully sooner than later.

According to this it is in the plans for Telus. Koodo should follow but that might or might not take awhile.
