If the signal is 4G your phone could now be on the 4G800 layer which EE users with compatible handsets can use.

Until VoLTE or 4G calling is up and running BT Mobile users can't use this layer.

I have 2 phones, one with an EE sim and the other with a BT Mobile sim. In network mode with both iPhones side by side you can see often that EE has jumped to band 20 4G800 but the BT Mobile has gone to 2G.

On band 3 4G1800 or band 7 4G2600 there is no difference in signal.

If you look at BTs coverage map the 4G coverage area has dramatically increased to match that shown on the EE coverage map recently. I presume this is because BT plan to provide Band 20 800MHz 4G coverage with the VoLTE upgrade.

@steviegal the trial is still ongoing, I doubt you will see anything for a few more weeks at least. I think we will see lots of things happen as they make netowrk and account changes in preperation for the roll out.

Yep - disappeared from my app too.

You could equally take that as a negative sign that the trial isn't going well and that the functionality won't be appearing soon.

Or equally that it should never have shown up on the app until it was live. And only appear when the SIM card is enabled for the service.

Smart talk is totally pointless unless you are abroad.  Yes, you can make calls using your home package, BUT you cannot receive them on your mobile device.

Hi @Shotgunjohn.

SmartTalk is completely different to 4G & Wi-fi calling. SmartTalk does have restrictions for its use and is linked to your home phone bill.

Wi-fi calling being discussed here, is a non app based service directly off your mobile allowing you to make and received calls and text even without a signal.

4G & Wi-fi calling Is due to launch shortly on selected handsets.

I guess that will mean handsets purchased through BT?
