Vodafone UK has started pushing out a rather unexpected update to all its carrier-branded models of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge located in the United Kingdom. This upgrade carries support for the operator’s fairly new Wi-Fi calling service, which authorizes users to place calls via the Internet when they have no cellular signal without incurring any extra charges.
Unfortunately, you will need to be a subscriber of either a Pay Monthly Red, Red Value, Red+ or Business Premier plan to use the Wi-Fi calling platform. You’ll also need to ensure that your device was bought directly from Vodafone because if you purchased it from a third-party company, it won’t bundle the correct drivers for the feature to work. Other than these two provisos, using the service couldn’t be easier. Simply install the upgrade, then text the word “CALLING” to 97888 to enable it.

T-Mobile’s popular social media figure, Des on Twitter has subtly hinted that the WiFi calling update for the Nexus 6 could be rolling out starting today. His tweet said the following – “This is shaping up to be a very Happy Memorial day weekend… #Nexus6“
While he’s not making it obvious that the update is being sent out, the responses to the tweet mention that it is currently being sent out to the devices. Also the hashtag leaves nothing to the imagination.
We’re yet to see anything on the company’s site at the moment, but we’ll update you with more information as we have it. There shouldn’t be any other changes bundled with the update as the carrier is only enabling the WiFi calling feature.
So T-Mobile Nexus 6 users, are you seeing the update yet?
