    I tried to test Wifi calling by switching to Airplane mode but I get an error message that I need to switch off Airplane mode.

    Airplane mode switches off the phone functionality IMHO.

    WiFi Calling should work even on Airplane Mode.

    No, but that is how it works. If it does not for you, then your account is not provisioned for WiFi Calling on Smart’s end.

    Tried it just now. Set my phone on Airplane mode with WiFi still on, and tried to make a call.

    Got this error message: “No Network Connection”. Like @neilrg said, I might have to call Smart and have them provision my line for WiFi calling.

    Hmmm - I think it works if you are not on Airplane Mode, which ensures that the full phone functionality is working, but has a weak to no cell signal coverage but with wifi. Airplane mode turns off the phone/cell data transceivers AFAIK.

    I tried this and it did not work, but with Airplane Mode OFF, weak to no signal and WiFi, it works. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    That's not how WIFI Calling works. You should still be able to make calls even if on Airplane mode as long as it's connected to WIFI and as long as your SIM is inserted (even if it has no cellular radio).


    Yes, probably it's still not fully working on Smart.

    Any updates on this? I called Smart and currently they are on commercial testing of VoWIFI to Smart Postpaid except Signature and Infinity subscribers. That’s their update as of Dec 19, 2019

    anyone could try it out? Make sure WiFi Calling is enabled and connected to a strong WiFi network and go airplane mode. Make sure sa status bar yung signal should say “Smart WiFi Calling” or something similar.

    Wifi calling is already working on my Smart Galaxy S8+. I turned on airplane mode and wifi and call went through. Still not working on my iPhone.

    Does VoLTE work on your phone as well?

    There's still no WiFi Calling on Globe as of iOS 13.3.
