Hi dbhdbh,

 

Thanks for your interest. G5/G5 Plus will support WiFi Calling but it is carrier dependent.

Yeah just like the G4 did, which means not at all as having the hardware and an up-to-date OS means nothing without the support and blessing of the carriers. Lenovo/Motorola seems unwilling to put forth the effort or incurring the expense of getting WiFi calling enabled on the major carriers. I'd be willing to pay and extra $20-30 USD to have WiFi calling on T-Mobile.

Has anyone tested whether the unlocked Moto G5 Plus supports Verizon's "Advanced Calling" features, i.e., HD Voice and Wi-Fi calling? Any word from Motorola on whether these features should work? For me they are must-haves due to mediocre in-building Verizon coverage.

 

Thanks!

My carrier, Verizon, has it, but I cannot find where to turn it on on the G5 Plus.

To foboz:

I have the Moto G Plus (5th Generation) - Lunar Gray - 32 GB - Unlocked - Prime Exclusive - with Lockscreen Offers & Ads, and I have T-Mobile and I used to have the Moto G4.

WiFi calling worked "out of the box". When I make a call from my house, which has Google Fibre WiFi, once my call connects it says on the phone screen "Wi-Fi Call".  I did not have to change any setting.

Thanks. It sounds like Wi-Fi calling works with T-mobile but not AT&T or Verizon ?

LexieFish:

 

I hear that the Moto G 5 does have WiFi calling enabled on T-Mobile. I have not heard anything about the G 4 - are you saying that you were able to make WiFi calls on T-Mobile with the G 4?

Just bought the g5 plus, xt1687, doesn't appear to have WiFi calling in any of the settings menus. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks

Hi davidbrock66,

 

 That would be carrier dependent. Have you checked with your carrier?
