    Total Wireless voLTE &/or Wifi calling - who has it working now?

    I've read online that some people have voLTE/wi-fi calling working for them on Total Wireless:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/NoContract/...nions/dgmin6h/

    If you do have it working, what are your carrier settings? Is there anything you've done that got it working? (Especially if you've been a customer for a while..)

    Interesting seems like some people doing new activations are getting it.

    If people doing new activations are getting it, could I get a new SIM card and also have VoLTE?

    I think that's just a rumor.
    Just asked the Technical Support - they don't support it.

    This guy says he activated two Total Wireless branded Samsung Galaxy Sky phones recently that now have VoLTE. There are even pictures in this link:

    100% working I described and tested it in this thread. Including rural alliance roaming on 4G

    Adding to that thread I moved the SIM to my iPhone 7+ and still have VoLTE, so whatever is going on is SIM/Activation based, it carried to the Verizon native iPhone.

    This is what I got on my LG G3.
    The same function was able to turn on the VoLTE when I had the phone on Verizon postpaid.

    Pretty sure this is going to require some kind of external trigger. Like I said mine did not activate until I did a device AND SIM swap.

    Verizon Postpaid at first would not work until you activated it in the profile for the phone, after a while they started activating it whenever you swapped to a VoLTE compatible handset. I have not tried swapping sims between phones on my kids yet to see if that would trigger it.

    My experience is it is account/SIM based and not phone based... so G3, G4, Nexus none will matter until there is a flag on something saying you can do it.

    I did restart my Wife's iPhone 6 last night to try to trigger it, now when I select Voice on LTE it gives a popup that directs me to the site shown above. There is no way I am going to call and try to get it activated, I can wait for the automated method.

    Otherwise my iphone definitely works perfectly with VoLTE on Total Wireless.

    I had it working on a rooted Note 4 last year somehow, have a post about it on here.

    So far, not working on my S7 Edge. I have an extra SIM card, may try and do a transfer to that and see if it does anything.

    I have activated another SIM on my TW account and still no VoLTE. This was a full deactivation and activation process.
    Almost lost my phone number in the process (luckily it was still in their system for the 1 minute that I had a different number).

    Same here, I moved over to the new SIM card that I had from them, still can't get it to activate.
