Wi-FI Calling on unlocked Phone

AT&T, given the hardships associated with COVID-19 is there a chance that wi-fi calling will be allowed on an unlocked S10 Galaxy phone (purchased from a 3rd party)?

Hello @Mashenden!

 

It's understandable why mobile users prefer that Wi-Fi Calling on all devices. Currently, a compatible AT&T wireless phone or AT&T PREPAID phone with Wi-Fi turned on and an eligible plan is required in order for Wi-Fi Calling to function.

 

We hope this info helps.

No, this info and position does not help at all. Sorry, to be blunt but now is the time that AT&T needs to change its on this.

@Mashenden You just think they flip a switch? Samsung has to add code then it has to be pushed with the monthly security updates. And not much coding is getting done right now.
