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!

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 phone work off the Verizon system

asked 1 year, 8 months ago
By
ray
on Walmart Family Mobile Samsung Galaxy S2 4G

answer 1
No, it is GSM, which only works for T-Mobile and AT&T but this T-989 comes locked for T-Mobile. Verizon, Sprint and Cricket use CDMA which is a different, incompatible technology. The GSM phones use a SIM card while the CDMA phones do not.

Verizon never brought the Samsung Galaxy S II into their lineup. There is a Sprint CDMA version of the Galaxy S II but it will only work on Sprint but can be flashed to work on Cricket. The Sprint Galaxy S II cannot be flashed to Verizon and even it it could, Verizon would not allow it to be activated on their network.

I don't think so. It is locked for t-mobile or the wal-mart mobile plan. It uses a SIM card. I am unsure if it can be unlocked and used for verizon but I wouldn't spend the money to try.

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.

Yes... that is what it's for.

answer 2
Yes it will. I went to my local Wal-Mart tonight, trying to purchase the one that's listed specifically as "prepaid" or "Monthly 4G" and they were out of stock so I took a chance and bought this one. The associate was very nice and explained that the phone doesn't come with a SIM card so as long as you get a T-Mobile SIM card of any kind it will work. In the case of Wal-Mart's Family Mobile service, if you choose to actually use that service you have to buy their "Started Kit" which includes a SIM card but locks you into the Family Mobile plans. I, however, just purchased the phone, went immediately over to my local T-Mobile Store and they gave me a new SIM card for free and activated it on the monthly 4G prepaid plan for just the cost of the first month of service. I got the unlimited everything $70 service but the same applies to all the plans, even the $30 one. So just buy the phone and go to a T-Mobile store or T-Mobile.com and you'll be all set! BTW, I don't know where ya'll are at, but this was a great deal on this phone. Most people sell these used for $400 so $299 new is amazing!
