@SteveadsNo. WiFi calling is only using the "phone" function as normal when you have no cell signal. ( and normal sms text)

Any other app is not effected.

Definitely would not affect any other apps.

Re: wifi calling on huawei p30 pro

Hi Chris, a quick correction if I may...the P30 pro does support wifi calling. The facility has been disabled in o2 carrier specific settings. Please can you give whoever is responsible for turning it on...a sharp poke in the ribs and ask them to get on with it.... thanks

Re: wifi calling on huawei p30 pro

@RichardC good luck with that... there are a lot of phones out there which support WiFi and 4G Calling but for whatever reason O2 have yet to enable them, and they don't appear to be in any hurry to do so.

They kind of remind me of AT&T in the US, they are the same, they have a set list of 70ish handsets which are supported.

Yet other networks including others in the UK (cough EE cough) allow it providing the phone supports

Re: wifi calling on huawei p30 pro

Even My old Huawei P9 had WiFi and 4g calling and that handset is ancient! I don't understand how o2 can't have a timescale to enable this.... unless there is no plan!

The hardware may support it, but it's not currently supported on O2 which is where my previous 'not supported' comments came from. My apologies for any confusion this may have caused.

Sadly it's not an easy or simple case of 'turning it on'. The functionality needs to be implemented network side for it to be supported and every device has a different implementation of the technology, and our Wifi Calling implementation may be different to another networks.

I do however have some good news to share, but as we've had so many different threads on Wifi Calling for these devices, I've created a new thread (oh the irony...) for maximum visibility.

Re: wifi calling on huawei p30 pro

Hi Chris any progress on the wifi calling on the P30 pro, ive made contact with all the other providers, 3 mobile, EE and Vodaphone have this available for all their customers, cant believe that one of the biggest providers like o2 dont have this issue solved as yet.

 

after 16 odd years with o2, they do seem to be lagging behind the other providers on this, might be time to switch networks.
