Hi there
I want to upgrade to an iPhone 8 on pay monthly. WiFi calling is a good feature for me, as 4G reception can be patchy at home.
I’ve noted that some of the tariffs state that WiFi calling is included, whereas others don’t mention it.
Does this mean that the feature is disabled on some tarrifs, even though the handset is capable? Or is it just an omission - I can’t find info in the small print.
Thanks

No, you can get WiFi calling on any tariff.

Actually, on iPhones, WiFi calling will work on phones bought anywhere.

@Marcus I’d suggest going in store to get your phone rather than using the online shop as you will have better luck of the store having stock of your chosen device rather than the notorious website  shop

I’ve been offered a £25 discount online. Is there any reason to believe I’d be sent the wrong unit, and for there to be any doubt? Cheers

You won't be sent the wrong phone but depending on colour and capacity, you may have to wait for stock.
