I'm plannig to change my Z3 with a new Phone, but I need the Wi-Fi calling feature. Is this option present on the new Xperia X?

 

Thanks

Re: WI-Fi Calling

Wifi calling? Do you mean video call? It is available with a 3rd party app.

Re: WI-Fi Calling

WiFi calling is a feature that allow calls to go thru WiFi rather than using the regular GSM network, very cost friendly technology however you have to buy a carrier device that support WiFi calling and as far as I know the X doesn't support WiFi calling while the Z5 does.

Re: WI-Fi Calling

Wi-Fi Calling is supported by T-Mobile Germany. It's a neat and handy feature. When you have no cellular connection you still can phone by using an avaiable Wi-Fi connection. Sadly, right at the moment Samsung S7 series and iPhone 7 is supported only. 

 

You folks at Sony, do you have any information when this feature will be supported here in Germany? British Telecom already has got the support.
