This is not a big deal, even before years vowifi is commonly used in most of the countries, i am using this for last two years atleast in KSA, also all the network that i know allows to use it internationally, i can use my ksa number in india without any roaming charges, also my colleagues from korea and germany are using their home connection in ksa without any charges using vowifi, this is the main use of it, unfortunately still airtel or Jio didnt provided that.

Huge Promotion and advertisement of Wifi calling by Airtel & Jio is an acceptance of failure by Jio and Airtel in further improving network coverage. Its like they are saying live with it, no more towers. especially Jio.
Wifi calling is reducing load on Airtel and Jio networks. Airtel and Jio should give 20-25% discount to users who opt for wifi calling.

Get A50 from Flipkart @14999 or go for A50s @18500 both has confirmed CA support, strictly avoid M series even if they look spec wise attractive. I have an A50 and the phone is charm

No use of WiFi calling if it does not work in flight mode in all the handsets that support VoWiFi

You do understand that even with the best of coverage there will be corners in buildings and offices that will have low coverages?
If you want to map everything to money why did you complain of prices to be high when quality was good but had 1 gb for 250 rs. You simply cannot get best of both worlds without paying!

There is DNS routing issue with isp for jio vowifi. Specially on Airtel broadband. I faced same problem on jio number connected on Airtel broadband in Bangalore. If you change DNS gateway to cloudfare then this problem with get resolve ...

Better is if tou have good coverage at your location then better to switch off vowifi for time being till jio resolve this with ISP

It's quite disappointing to see that one of the most preferred mid-range smartphones in India, Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is not yet included in Airtel's Wi-Fi Calling list. There's still no communication from the operator or manufacturer either regards to when the compatibility shall be expanded to this model and when there will be a phased rollout of update to the users. Even the approx. 1.5 year old Redmi Note 7 Pro has recieved the update in the early stages of this technology. Even for my Redmi Note 8 Pro device, the lately introduced MIUI 11.0.4.0 Stable update came along with the Wi-Fi Calling feature (VoWi-Fi), but unfortunately this feature currently supports Jio network only. However, the most interesting part is that Airtel recently included this model in it's website and removed it right away for some mysterious reason. Will Redmi Note 8 Pro users be able to make use of Airtel Wi-Fi Calling service in the near future?

If any of the indian player provides international roaming in vowifi, they can get a lot more active connection from expat indians, even if they charge something more most of us are ready to pay that too.

I must say, we can keep Vowifi switch off permantly even for next few months. Why u need it? unless ur location is absolute dark spot and you forcefully continue with ur telco (jio/airtel) ..

VOLTE is much better and stable from long period.

Hi Chetan. I'm glad to know that your Airtel Wi-Fi calling (VoWi-Fi) service has reached your device and you're able to take advantage of this facility. I'm also quite relieved expecting that the service may also reach my device soon. I'm hereby sharing screenshots regards to why I'm unable to use this service yet on my device. I request you to kindly share the screenshots confirming the service availability on your device, just for my reference. This will enable me cross-check with Mi Services by sending them feedback. Thanking you in advance. Cheers...!!!

@Thamilan daa in Flight Mode iPhone Support

Go for Better iPhone for WiFi Calling in Flight Mode

Also my Question is that, we activate flight mode while we are not wish to use Phone or Prohibited. So why this Feature very important. Airtel and Jio connect VoWIFI while no coverage so not need flight mode VOWIFI

WiFi Calling does seem to work with flight mode enabled on iPhones. Don’t know why it doesn’t work similarly in Android.

Chetan :
Can you prove that you cannot use WiFi, bluetooth, WiFi direct in flight mode?. If these are allowed, then why can't VoWiFi?.

Do you have brain?.

flight mode is just to avoide interrferance with aircraft operation.

Now with technology upgrade, Inflight wifi hotspot available. so its logical that VOWIFI should work.

@chetan, you are saying like, Internet can connect to WHATSAPP for chat, but you should not allow Whatsapp CALL.... techacally no difference in packet generated from chat or call from whatsapp.

Thus VOWIFI should be enabled for inflight also considering business case.

Well, worst part of Airtel VoWiFi is that, you cannot use it with hotspot using Airtel 4G but you can use it with hotspot using Jio 4G. 😂

I know you wouldn't understand why it matters. Well, in some places Airtel have poor network but only it works good. So, using 4G hotspot at a good network place at home is a good idea. So, that's how it can be helpful.

Dude. You have the option of not calling on Wifi when you don't wanna use it. It's simple. Just disable wifi calling in your phone. No need to make a big deal out of it. We all will use Wifi calling because the calls are clear, and there's less signal inside the houses. Wifi calling is beneficial for most of us.
