Axon 7 Mini - Wifi calling ever a possibility

I recently switched to MintSim (T-Mobile MVNO) from an ATT MVNO and now have limited reception at home. Is there ever a possibility that wifi calling will come to the Axon 7 Mini?

    ​, While WiFi calling could be a possibility in the future, currently it is not available on the Axon 7 Mini.  Wish i had better news for you

    I doubt it via the carrier (but who knows?) But you could get a Google Voice number and make calls through Hangouts.

    Or Whatsapp, etc., etc.

    Yes, true. Google Voice gives you a number for inbound calls from the PSTN though. For free.

    I also have Mintsim. Wifi calling on the A7 works fine for me. No issues at all. Must be something with your settings.

    You have to enable wifi calling for your number using the online portal first before using it.

    @ram1220 do you have the Axon 7 mini ?
    @ashishv thanks for that

    -so when I go to enter my 911 address and enable wifi calling on mintsim I am getting an error message..
    "We're sorry
    Something bad happened and we weren't able to fix it ourselves. Please go back and try again."
    i should be good?

    Weird. WiFi calling works for me on T-Mobile even with airplane mode on

    I have never seen this error on my side, maybe try calling Mint and explain your situation?

    On Axon 7, wifi calling works wit Mintsim and Ultramobile. You need:

    • to setup your e911 address with Mintsim, Ultramobile or T-mobile,
    • to use the SIM1 slot (wifi calling does not work with SIM2).
      However, I had myself problems connecting wifi calling (error 82). I did a factory setting reboot and the problem was solved. Abvious, the phone has all updates installed.
      Hope this helps.
