As I'm moving back to O2 from EE, I think I may have to use WiFi calling more as the coverage isn't as good but I'm fed up of various issues I've had while I've been with EE.
The question I want to ask is do I need a device bought directly from O2 to have a WiFi calling device?
I've since seen a better deal through a third party which I know will send me a device with stock Samsung firmware if I cancel the O2 order and get the cheaper deal instead.
Thanks in advance! 👌🏻

I believe only phones with O2 firmware installed will allow you access to wifi calling and 4G calling on the O2 network.
So if you purchase a phone through a third party with stock Samsung firmware only you won't be able to use wifi calling on the O2 network.
Hope this helps and welcome to the forum

Tbh I'd ask @Chris_K for confirmation as there are some Samsung devices that work on open firmware.
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone7 (EE)

Good news is the S10 does support Wifi Calling on O2 with open market firmware (eg, stock firmware from the likes of CPW etc).

I'm loving my new phone! The prism green colour is amazing. 👌🏻
