I just bought an unlocked LG G8 ThinQ. My old LG G7 ThinQ had wifi texting, and I have seen videos of this phone with the wifi calling feature but it seems to be lacking from this phone. Is that a fluke or something I have to live with now?

Wifi calling will be dependent on the provider.If it's unlocked and on a different carrier from where it came,wifi calling won't be provisioned for it.

My current provider allows for wi-fi calling. Shouldn't the phone allow for it now? If not out of the box, then is there some sort of hack I can do to enable this feature?
