Three UK Now Supports Native Wi-Fi Calling on iPhone

British carrier Three has seeded a carrier settings update—version 27.1—that enables native Wi-Fi calling on iPhones.

Three previously required iPhone customers to use its free Three inTouch app for Wi-Fi calling, but the carrier settings update released on Friday introduces system-level support for Wi-Fi calls and texts under Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling.
We know that sometimes you can't get signal when you're indoors, but that shouldn't mean that you have to go off the grid. With Three inTouch Wi-Fi Calling, you can call and text whenever you're on Wi-Fi in the UK, even if there’s no mobile signal.
Three joins EE and Vodafone among carriers in the U.K. with native support for Wi-Fi calling on iPhones.

Assume this is not showing for anyone else on 10.3 beta?


Ive not found a way to enable it on 10.3 yet either, if anyone finds a way to do it let us know!

Shame it changes the tiny little '3' in the corner to 'Three Wifi Call'

One of the reasons I left Three for EE is because they had Wi-Fi calling built in, whereas Three used a crappy app that meant conversations were often disjointed between the app and the messages.app

This is a good step. I still won't switch back to Three though - EE has 4G in far more places, and faster speed too.

Beta 2 has been released. Anyone know the carrier version?

Carrier version is 27.5.2

On beta 3.

Wifi calling is now active, turns out the live chat support people know nothing, who would have guessed...?

Very nice. Thanks for the heads up, I've just enabled it.

I guess the next step is to see if they finally implement Visual Voicemail.

Edit: I know they have to save space in the status bar but now it's the only place where Wi-Fi is spelt without the hyphen.

I'm surprised o2 haven't got this yet, considering they were THE iPhone network originally.

Are Wifi minutes included in your allowance or are they unlimited/reduced? (I have an unlimited call contract so it wouldn't affect me - I'm just curious)
