Hey guys/gals I'd really like anyone who can sign into the blackberry.com/jira website to help me out and potentially help yourself out!
I've made a New Feature Request for Wifi Calling in BlackBerry 10 (Something I rely on 100% 24/7 on my 9900, but absent from my Z10 and Dev Alpha C) The New Feature Request is here - https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/BBTEN-1150
I'd really appreciate everybody's help in pushing this feature into BB10, all you need to do is vote for it in the Issue Tracker.
Here are the details:
This is a very well used feature so much so, it is promoted by Rogers as a selling Point. I have been a long time Rogers BlackBerry User (with a collection of 15 BBs) and now I live in a very Remote town in British Columbia where there is no Rogers service, but I'm lucky on one hand because I have a 9900 which has Wifi Calling built in which enables me to stay with a mobile phone company which I have been with for 10 years, and it lets me enjoy having the only phone that matters...My BlackBerry. I was a part of the BlackBerry Dev Alpha A program, and now have a BlackBerry Z10 Special Edition for my contributions, as well as a BlackBerry Dev Alpha C for development purposes, neither of which are of ANY USE to me without having Wifi Calling. I run my business using my BlackBerry, and it is very important that I use my new BlackBerry Z10 and Dev Alpha C as so my potential clients know how great BlackBerry 10 is and so I can demonstrate my apps to them, but I cannot do any of this and I will not be making as many apps because I have no way to use my phones without Wifi Calling.
My Home Office, My place of Employment, my friends house, my favourite coffee shop (the only one in town) and even the grocery store all have Wifi, and I can happily use my BlackBerry 9900 on these using Wifi Calling (in the town with no Rogers) and get all of my Paid-for Rogers Services such as Text messaging, MMS, BBM, Web Browsing, Phone calling, and because its using wifi I can even make BBM Video Calls, but I cannot do any of these with my Z10 or Dev Alpha C.
Notes: I must not be the only person in this situation, and even if I am, is one loyal customer using this very important functionality too little of a reason to add it to the operating system?
Very specifically, this is what I am talking about:
PLEASE Note that I am over 100km from the nearest Rogers Service, and that Everything I do with my BlackBerry relies upon this feature. -I do know I can use BBM Voice and BBM Video but that is Different
PLEASE also Note the following Rogers Service which allows me to do this, and that there is a very distinct purpose: Rogers Wi-Fi Calling
I'll give likes/kudos for your support!
