Although I do not have the exact model number for this specific Galaxy S 2, I can assure you that it is not the SGH-T989, since that model is a T-mobile model and is not 4G capable.

Question

Does this have WiFi Calling if using on TMobile Network?

For those who own the steel gray edition, even though it is T-Mobile branded, I heard it does NOT have WiFi calling installed - is that true? For anyone using this on T-Mobile's network, does WiFi calling get pushed-down/enabled? Again, I know it has WiFi, but does it have WiFi Calling?

Mr. Samsung this is not helpful. I have already talked to a "Walmart cellular associate' about this and they don't have a clue, I also called T-Mobile support and they don't have a clue.

Obviously many people are using this phone via T-Mobile, come on, let us know if it has WiFi calling built in - take 18 seconds and look at your settings - should be under: Push the menu key at far left bottom of phone, select Settings, under Wireless and Networks select More..., there should be an entry called "Wi-Fi Calling" with a check box.
A big Thank you to the person who let's us know!

Something is wrong with the website I think. It said the same thing to me but it works off the t-mobile network so it should work as long as t-mobile covers your area.

It seems no matter what zip code you enter with this phone you get the same warning. It must be a mistake. They're the exact same phone, T-mobile SGH-T989, and whether you buy service from Walmart or T-mobile they operate on the T-mobile network.

Thank you for your interest in this Samsung Cell Phone. Although I do not have the information you requested, a dedicated Wal-Mart Wireless representative may be able to assist you better with this question. Technically, as long as the bands on the phone are compatible with the bands the service provider supports and is unlocked, the phone will be capable of working on that carrier and in that region. However, some models and color variants may have different bands and frequencies. Unfortunately, since I am not affiliated with any Service Provider, I cannot provide any additional information on what bands each carrier uses.

Although each carrier's phones will vary, this specific SGS2 should come with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Currently, firmware and OS upgrade information is not available. Please contact a Walmart Wireless associate for additional assistance.

Thank you for your interest in this Samsung Cell Phone. Since this is a carrier specific question, it would be better to ask your carrier or a Wal-Mart Wireless Associate. I will not have access to Wal-Mart’s inventory system, nor am I affiliated with any US Service Providers, so I cannot provide any additional information on carriers, carrier compatibility, plans and contracts, pricing, store policies or availability.
