Hi, I would've picked up the previous thread on this, but it appears to have been locked due to some squabbling.
I really don't want to re-start the squabbling, but I'm curious, as a 950XL owner, who recently moved to T-Mobile, based on the promise that WiFi calling would work on my phone.
My previous carrier was "blacklisting" the phone for WiFi calling, and now that T-Mobile is offering WiFi calling on the latest (Fierce XL) Win10 phone, it's starting to seem like this might be the case here too?
They offered full support for the 950 (non XL), which interestingly enough, they sold, hmm...
I'm open to other explanations, particularly those that give weight to those overseas whom have also purchased an unlocked 950XL, and have WiFi calling working fine (I can see it's all there, in the net diagnostics, it's just not on the SIM side).
I have to admit, I'm a bit frustrated, as a good deal of our weekends are spent at a location where I have great WiFi, but virtually no cell coverage. I figured my days of struggling to keep connected, for various reasons (usually work, but not currently), without having to have a secondary carriers' phone (there is one carrier that blankets the area, probably not hard to figure out).
So, I'm all ears, why isn't T-Mobile enabling WiFi calling and VoLTE on these phones, given that they are doing so on the Fierce phone, which covers the same bands, with the *exact* same OS?
I've been worked in s/w engineering for almost 25 years now, mostly in s/w and h/w boundary areas, so I'm familiar with a lot of protocol problems, metadata issues, and other similar things that prevent all kinds of s/w and h/w from communicating properly (I've actually written a few network protocol tests, back some years).
I did see some Twitter conversation regarding these models, and T-Mobile's president, but I'm having a hard time believing that T-Mobile really can't get their hands on a 950/950XL, I can walk up the street and purchase one at MS, and I'm then I'm another 4-ish miles from the T-Mobile headquarters, I could probably walk the entire route in about 2 hours, or 5-10 minutes of driving.
Thanks for any insight, from T-Mobile and/or forum members here, ideally real technical insight, vs. speculation.
I'm hoping that I'll be able to use my 950XL, as it's designed (and being used by others, on other networks), on T-Mobile, in the very near future.
