Koodo on VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling: “Details to Come Soon” [u]

Share:

Last fall, Telus flanker brand Koodo Mobile confirmed it was testing VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling, with the launch date unspecified at the time.

VoLTE allows calls to made over the LTE network for improved call quality and faster connections, while Wi-Fi Calling allows users to send and receive calls/texts in areas of low cellular connectivity, but over over Wi-Fi.

Fast forward five months later, and Koodo customers are still waiting for the rollout of VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling. However, an update appears to be coming soon, according to the Koodo Community Forums.

Prominent Koodo forum reps have started replying to customers over recent weeks an update to VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling is coming soon.

The most recent reply from a week ago to a customer query was answered with “details to come soon”, while a question from four weeks ago was answered with “details for both are to come in a few weeks.

Eager Koodo Mobile customers are anticipating the launch of VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling, since rivals Rogers/Fido and Bell/Virgin already have these features available, and parent company Telus.

We’ve reached out to Koodo Mobile for clarification on the launch, but if these forum replies are any indication, VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling support should be out sometime this spring.

Update: According to a Koodo spokesperson via email, we were told the company is “close” to launching VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling by “next month”. Stay tuned.

Update April 4, 2018: Koodo has launched Wi-Fi Calling and VoLTE.

  • My 1/2 cents

    Currently we’re in spring now. I’d say we might have it by summer, at the earliest.

  • Story updated with statement from Koodo.

  • Anaron

    This is why I keep coming back to iPhone in Canada for news. Thanks for the update! I’m not with Koodo anymore but I have a few friends that are and they’d be happy to know that Koodo is working on VoLTE and WiFi calling.

  • Anaron

    Hell, it’s about time.

  • Riddlemethis

    Don’t read much into the statement. It’s vague as could be.

  • Z S

    Well, it’s about time!!

  • You da man dawg ??

  • Riddlemethis

    What do you know that the rest of us don”t? Nowhere does it say or imply that VoLTE and WiFi calling will be implemented or in your area.

  • cayaguy

    Wow what a great article! Not. Hey iphoneincanada why not publish news when it’s news… this isn’t news it’s rumours at best. This isn’t iphoneroumoursincanada. Please let the next article on this topic be to inform Koodo users when it’s acfually launched! This hearsay is painful for a lot of patiently waiting Koodo users.

  • Have a great day.

    How is that publishing the launch of the service? It’s all hearsay. Do you care about the supporters of this site at all? If you didn’t have supporters you’d have no money because you’d have no traffic on your site. This article is horrible nothing of it is helping the Koodo user just another ‘tease’.

  • Readers asked for an update (in the other Koodo iPhone 6s deal post), so I listened and provided one. If you don’t like the content we produce, feel free to leave–don’t let the door hit you on the way out, bud.

  • cayaguy

    What no ‘have a nice day’? You’ve downgraded to forum trolling/flaiming.. great job yet again! It’s sad to see as one of the publisher on the site you’ve dug yourself into a hole. If you want to keep posting irrelevant articles about hearsay vs factual truth go ahead. You’ll loose readership and advertising.. and after your last post I hope that’s true. MobileSyrup looks better and better.. take care ‘have a nice day, bud’

  • Truth Teller

    Listen up troglodyte. Many people appreciate the information provided here and visit the site for that reason (among many others). Your vacuous comments are reflective of the trolls that swing by from time to time. Hopefully the door cracks you good the next time that you swing by.

    Gary, keep up the much appreciated fantastic work and please ignore that dotard (and perhaps even my somewhat acerbic retort).

  • cayaguy

    Have you finished kissing Gary’s ass yet? God forbid an online blog post information and god forbid the public has an opinion about it. My opinion is just as valid as yours as is Gary’s. Get over yourself ‘truth teller’.

  • Billy the kid

    Holy crap about time, Koodo. Making us customers wait so long…#firstw0rldproblems

  • Billy the kid

    Haha, cayaguy strikes again, being a weak lil’ b1tch as always. Typical sensitive loser with a chip on his shoulder, grow up. Nobody cares about your opinion. The news here is much appreciated, unlike your presence no matter where you go, sunshine. #cayaisweak

  • Ex

    Great update! I’ve been following the Koodo boards for months and it’s great to see a more solid time frame! April can’t come soon enough. Thanks for the update Gary, as always!

    Another Gary ass kisser… I think Gary is quite capable of defending his position as so am I. This article is weak as it’s hearsay. That’s my opinion. You obviously care about it as you’re commenting about it.

  • Truth Teller

    First, take an English course.
    Second, shut up.
    Third, you can’t handle the Truth!

  • cayaguy

    Taking your own advise that you preach and the high road should be your truth lol ?

  • warpdrive

    Nice! I just ported 2 lines to Koodo in the last 7 days! ??
    Thanks for the heads up G!

  • Anaron

    And your opinion is dumb but you’re entitled to it. I’m another person that appreciates the update here. It’s ironic that you brought up the people that support this site. Some of those same people wanted an update on this. This is news to those people. Just because you personally don’t think so doesn’t mean that’s the case here. Speak for yourself.

    If you’re not interested in it, then simply ignore it and move onto the next article or stop reading the articles entirely. Quit being salty.

  • cayaguy

    Weak….just weak. Let it die. Go submit your personal attacks on someone else.

  • Anaron

    I didn’t call you dumb. I said your opinion was dumb. There’s a difference.

  • Anaron

    It isn’t specific but “by next month” is a lot better than the “soon” we got a few times.

  • Franko65

    N00b question. Being with Koodo since Dec. does one have to purchase a new SIM to have VoLTE? Hopefully the iPhone SE will be supported.

  • Kate

    Yes, it does:
    Update: According to a Koodo spokesperson via email, we were told the company is “close” to launching VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling by “next month”. Stay tuned.

  • Kate

    If one is so bitter and whiny, especially over something so trivial, they must have an awful day. So yes, have a nice day =)

  • Kate

    And I thought Videotron took their sweet time haha XD

  • Kate

    Most probably, yeah. I think you’d have more luck on their forum.

  • Update April 4: VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling now live from Koodo. Fake news Cayaguy proved wrong, once again.

  • Anaron

    It’s the first time they gave a solid date and they stuck to it. VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling launched with the LG V30 (with support for other iOS and Android devices on the way). How’s that for vague?
