Checked the original link, it says requires iP6s or iP6s+? might be a premature launch..Has anyone got this yet? Apparently they are in the process of activating accounts?
Agreed. I hope it's just a mistake, would love to use wifi calling since signal is choppy at my work place :/Would be a bad move by Vodafone to require the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Wi-Fi Calling is supported with the iPhone 5.
To take advantage of Wi-Fi Calling, you need:
- a Pay monthly Red or Red Value Bundle, Red+ or Business Premier*
- iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus
nope, not quite. the 5c has slightly better/newer baseband chip, which might make it perform better for wifi calling, and the iphone 5 not quite good enough (to Apple standards). (not defending their decision. i have a 2011 MBA which has the hardware for handoff but apple don't support it officially - have to use a third party tool to activate it)iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C are the same hardware.
I don't think it's the same here. At the time EE did their rollout, only the latest iPhone supported wifi calling.EE are/were rolling theirs out to the latest iPhones only (at the time), but plan/planned to extend it to older models too. It could be the same case here. Trial run with a limited number of people etc.
I'm pretty sure that's not true, because I'm pretty sure the U.S. carrier(s) that supported Wifi Calling from last year also supported 5c and 5s. EE began rolling out earlier this year to iPhone 6 and 6 Plus only. Now they support 5c and 5s too. But not because anything changed on Apple's end, just their own roll out programme moved on to 5c and 5s.I don't think it's the same here.
