Hi all I found a simple way for those who has updated their iphone IOS to the newer IOS 11, There was issues with o2 wi-fi calling not working after software update.

 

First turn off data for mobile while making sure that you are connected to the WiFi this will force IOS 11 system to start up o2WiFiCall once the o2WiFiCall has activated then turn on mobile data and all should be fine after that slight_smile

Thanks for the tip.  I had to power off the phone fully then turn it back on, then restart mobile data.  All OK now.

This doesn't work for me. Does anyone have any update on how to get Wifi calling working consistently?

Check that you have wifi calling enabled in mobile data settings as sometimes it can be turned off by accident
