  1. I cannot get the wifi calling notification to stop. I’ve had the S22+ for 3 days, and all 3 days I have googled and adjusted more settings over and over to make it stop, nothing has worked.
    I hope there’s a solution soon. my previous note had this issue only for a day or 2, but the settings were different and wifi calling used an app. so ‍♀️ idk

    • Sorry to hear that. Have you tried adjusting the notification from your device settings. You should also try using lock app like QuickStar and then use the Visibility of Indicators section to turn off some IMS network icons.

    So none of my 5 old (offline) cell phones can ever be used for wi-fi calling? Are you sure? I though that was the whole point of “use wifi calling”.
