OnePlus phone certification VoLTE

Hello,

I was curious to know if/when Fizz will certify OnePlus phones. There are so many earlier discussions going on with the standard Fizz reply that they plan to expand the list but not even one phone from OnePlus is certified. And this has continued for more than a year.

I am planning to buy the new OP12 but it seems I won't be able to use VoLTE on one of the newest phones just because Fizz doesn't certify phones fast enough?

Thanks for any reasonable responses (except for the standard Fizz reply which adds no meaning to the conversation).

    We are all users here. Usually a moderator (@Whizz account) replies that we should check for the updates on the official site.

    In my opinion no because Fizz or Videotron has never sold these models. Unless they decide one day to allow VoLTE to all devices.

    From my perspective, I don't understand why they need to certify phones that already supported VoLTE. I share the same opinion, allow VoLTE on all devices right now!!!

    Unfortunately, we cannot provide any answer on that... I'm still waiting for the volte certification for my pixel 4xl (certified with Videotron), which will probably never arrive. I will have to replace my phone in 1 year or two even if it's still working fine because of that

    Yeah, it is a bit unfortunate that valid phones supporting VoLTE are not certified. When asking question about this, the only answer we got is to check the list and it might be updated.

    It does get updated but only with new phones being just released... They are not catching up on older phones

    Since they have never certified any OnePlus phone it is clear that the intent is not there. I believe phones from 6T have volte inbuilt. I had 7 pro earlier and sim from another country had a perfectly working volte connection but not fizz.

    I have been looking around other forums on OnePlus and Canadian carriers. Basically no carrier certifies OP phones as of now and a few people from Public and Bell have said that it might work. It is a hit/miss case. So we are at the mercy of Canadian oligopolistic telecom sector to certify Volte on phones when a perfectly working phone could just be used out of the box. This is like going back to the time of contract control of phones but in a different way.

    I don't think any country has this system of certifying phones for volte in the world. Welcome to Canada.

    It is also worth noting that when next year 3G stops in Canada, all OP phones will be bricked in Canada and will be unusable since we can't make phone calls for lack of volte. Unless CRTC forces the companies, we OP owners are doomed in Canada.

    So I've got a question. Will we not be able to access any features at all if our Oneplus is not VoLTE certified or only certain features? Cuz I was thinking of getting a low cost talk and text plan and stick with the data plan on Fizz..
