    Tried this just now. Hopefully, this will finally activate my VoWiFi service.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Hindi xa location dependent unless if overseas ka.

    Tried this last night and submitted VoWiFi activation request.
    I then received this message at 3:22am.

    VoLTE was already activated about a week ago but VoWiFi is still not working.
    Request status in GlobeOne app is SOLVING.

    I have an old prepaid number that I still maintain with smart that I leave on standby for OTP/lazada etc in my old iPhone 6. I enabled the wifi calling earlier this week and I don't know exactly when it was turned on as I dont check the phone daily unless I'm expecting an sms or something. I just noticed it yesterday that Smart VoWiFI was activated. So yep you're right. it should work with older devices so long as the device supports it.

    Realized just now how convenient VoLTE (or in this case, over 5G) is... had to make a call while also tethered to my phone with an ongoing an online meeting.

    3G can supposed to do this. Simultaneous voice and data. It’s just Philippines’ 3G Cellular Data is most of the time unreliable.

    Yes, voice and data over 3G for the longest time. But only recent was this possible with LTE and now 5G.

    Just noticed when on Globe VoWIFI sometimes I cannot receive SMS but can do outgoing SMS / both incoming & outgoing Calls are fine.

    Not sure if this is Globe IMS server issues or with iOS.

    Some fixes: I had to do Network Settings Reset , turn off device for 3 mins, airplane mode doesn’t fix it though.

    Confirmed working:

    While on an active call on another line:

    When I have no SMART signal (simulated by forcing a manual carrier selection to a network I know my SIM won’t latch to. Used DITO’s network just for lulz):

    Were you able to make calls/texts using your Smart line in this scenario?

    Umandar na naman issue sa VoLTE / VoWIFI ni SMART. Minsan di ko naririning if inbound call via VoWIFI or VoLTE, calling them back works, issue persist especially if naka 2G/3G yung tumatawag.

    Didn't experience such issue though sa Android devices, not sure why. :(

    Sana ifix nila to... tsk2.
