Not enough people have brought unlocked S20 to had any data on that.
You should NOT expect wifi calling.
Other possible problems are visual voicemail may not work.

wifi calling does not work. Volte is spotty but does work.
@GLIMMERMAN76 Is this based on your actual experience with the S20 or an assumption? Just curious since this article states it will work.
"I've also heard that the unlocked unit will support voice-over-LTE and Wi-Fi calling on all carriers. AT&T, especially, tends to be testy about allowing those features on unlocked phones, citing software compatibilities. But the carrier says you should be good to go with this one."
@rp343 I can tell you right now that WiFi calling does not work on a s20 ultra unlocked at this time. Beyond that I am keeping my mouth shut. That guy is also going on assumptions. PCmag is not known for being right on things.

I just got unbranded S20+. Wifi Calling & VoLTE work on Project Fi. But, AT&T is continuing to be a (Edited per community guidelines) and refuse it to enable the feature. AT&T claims it's a software issue and transferred me to Samsung. The Samsung support claims it's technically impossible to have one single version of the phone that supports wifi calling on all networks. That's when I called (Edited per community guidelines) since Apple is able to just that. :(

actually with Android it's kinda right. Att does not allow wifi calling on unlocked uncertified phones. That phone is actually different in model number. It's a u1 so really Samsung is right.

I have a 5g ultra from samsung unlocked. No 5G or wifi calling. Works with Tmobile though. As soon as its payed off I will dump ATT and move to T-Mobile

@billcows Tmobiles 5G is not real 5g it's more like 4.5g. more will get it once deployed but it's slower than mill wave tech.
