Wait what there's WiFi Calling???? When it's implemented?

Edit: WiFi Calling is enabled via M1 Singapore Carrier Update 32.1. Rolled out today(?)

Erm also, WiFi calling will still deduct from your voice bundle btw

Wi-Fi Calling is when let’s say you are in an area or place with poor cellular coverage but has got Wi-Fi. It allow you to still make phone calls.

May even work overseas without Roaming VAS. Connect to WiFi can already.

However, when I tested M1 WiFi Calling with Airplane mode (simulate no service locally/overseas), only Voice calls can be made. No SMS support yet.

M1 needs to enable IMS for both Voice and SMS to enable the SMS support. Currently only IMS for Voice.

Bundled mins will still be deducted. It’s just (normal) cellular calls made via Wi-Fi instead of the usual cellular tower or reception.

Yes. It's billed as normal airtime charges.

Actually it depends.

Disable Roaming, use airplane mode. Then connect to local WiFi networks, automatically the phone will connect to WiFi Calling

Calls would probably be treated as normal Singapore airtime charges.

But this definitely needs testing though.

Actually could do the other way, make an overseas call from singapore with the airplane mode on connected to wifi.

it doesn't work if the network you're connected to is not M1. wifi calling will only work on home network, meaning m1 sim card on m1 network, regardless of what wifi network you connecting to.

Singtel already has this feature long time ago and i was also testing the hypothesis of it being able to work overseas but sadly, it doesn't work that way.
