Progressive phone brands

It is brands like OnePlus that lead the way. Not Apple. When will you allow features like WiFi Calling to work on these phones?

Re: Progressive phone brands

Kevin... as one involved in network testing before retirement, even basic phones require extensive testing before approval.

Many smaller brands offer features, but non visible operation is critical. It would take many paragraphs to detail why major networks limit the number of brands they endorse. But.. there is a good reason as a simple software glitch can cause havoc for a network.

A "Like" is always appreciated. If my advice is a solution, please mark it. I'm not a Telstra employee.
