Question Samsung S10e on 3 UK


Novice Member
Hi folks,
I'm hoping to buy an S10e for use on the 3 network:
So in order to support WIFI Calling does this device have to be carrier locked?
Also is 3's 'Super Voice' VoLTE facility still in use and likewise is this only available
on phones direct from 3 ?
Incidentally, I would buy from 3 SIM-Free but apparently they are no longer stocked.

WiFi calling works on my Xiaomi mi 9t pro with '3', my phone is unlocked. As for volte I'm not sure as yet, I have only been with them for a day!
I' just made a call and it was over the 4g network, as the 4g symbol stayed on. There is a known bug on my phone, since the last update, that stops the volte symbol displaying. I came across this which may be of use! Three VoLTE restrictions lifted?

I have a Sony Xperia, bought unlocked from elsehere. WifIcalling works just fine on three with that, so I'd guess any phone so equipped will do.
