TELUS iPhone Wi-Fi Calling Not Supported “At This Time”

While Rogers has officially announced they would support Wi-Fi Calling for iPhone users in iOS 9, we now have confirmation TELUS will not be supporting the feature–for now.

According to a statement via email, a TELUS representative explained β€œAt this time, TELUS does not have Wi-Fi calling for iPhone.” No other details were provided.

Wi-Fi Calling on iPhone requires carrier support to be enabled and allows customers to make and receive calls and texts over Wi-Fi, when there is no cell signal. This is convenient for those in areas of poor coverage.

Earlier today TELUS released their two-year iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pricing, set to start at $400 and $530 respectively. Pre-orders for Apple’s latest smartphone kicks off tonight at 12:01AM PDT/3:01AM EDT.

    Sucks to be a Telus customer

  • Of course Rogers supports it because there are so many holes in their network πŸ™‚

    Telus will announce wifi calling support once Bell does.

    Well, it’s taken them well over a year and a full OS version to get it done since they first said they were going to support it. Guess their software support teams are as bad as their network teams.

    Why? They are two different networks.

    Hopefully Koodo customers get this at the same time as Telus. If I recall correctly, Telus and Koodo took a long time to get Visual Voicemail enabled when it was launched.

  • They have a shared 4G/LTE network

    Ahh. Did not know.

    Historically, Telus mobility has not been willing to be absent a service, that both its main mobility competitors have.
