Wi-Fi Calling

I don't see any information on this, and I hope it's coming soon, but I think Wi-Fi Calling would really add to the value of services with Lum Mobile. I know SaskTel just launched it for iPhone, with Android presumably coming soon, so hopefully Lum Mobile isn't far behind.

    Wi-Fi calling and eSim should be essential for a digital-first carrier for sure.

    VoLTE implementation is our current project and our Engineering team's first priority at the moment!

    +1 to get WiFi calling on the roadmap (Android and IPhone) . I think it is especially helpful where cell coverage may be spotty or non-existent (rural, basements, campgrounds, etc) but WiFi is avaliable and reliable.

    I’ll add a +1 to this as well.

    First step is VoLTE and then we’ll see where we go from there!

    My iPhone cellular settings invite me to turn WiFi Calling on by callling Sasktel which I did but the nice man said, “No, Lüm is not yet offering such a thing.” This, when I could not make or receive cellular calls because of the network being down and when I’d just paid for an annual plan. A mistake, I wonder?

    Unfortunately VoWiFi would also be down since it uses similar technology to VoLTE. They've fixed the Regina server issue and calls should be working now.


    We're investigating how difficult it would be to add VoWiFi since it's obviously one of the top things people have been posting about. Hoping to have an update on it soon!
