Unlocked Samsung S8 WiFi Calling

    Does this work exactly the same way on a locked as an unlocked phone?

     

    Thinking of buying an unlocked S8 and want to know.

        Happy Friday, hitchens97!

         

        You bring up a great question with regard to WiFi calling on the Galaxy S8! Since this is a non-T-Mobile device, we cannot guarantee that WiFi calling will work. You can read more about it here:

         

        Non T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling-capable devices

        Wi-Fi Calling is available on non-T-Mobile iPhone 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus and newer on iOS 8 or later. When a T-Mobile SIM card is inserted into these iPhones, the device receives the T-Mobile Carrier Bundle and Wi-Fi calling options become available.

        • Not available on iPhone 5 or older devices, even with iOS 8 or later.
        • Not available on other non T-Mobile devices.
        • Some manufacturers state their devices have T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling (for example, Nexus 5x and 6p). T-Mobile doesn't sell them and hasn't tested them for compatibility, so we can't verify compatibility with these devices.
