It has been a few months since the BlackBerry Classic arrived on T-Mobile, the carrier and BlackBerry had a bit of a falling out but they worked things out which brought back BB handsets to Magenta. The Classic has since been available for purchase through the country’s third largest mobile carrier but it has been missing one feature and that’s Wi-Fi Calling, it has now been confirmed that Wi-Fi Calling on this handset will go live very soon.
T-Mobile COO Mike Sievert was asked over Twitter about when we can expect Wi-Fi Calling to be available on BlackBerry Classic.
Sievert simply replied “this week!,” confirming that Classic owners on Magenta don’t have to wait for much longer to use this novel feature on their BlackBerry handset.
It’s likely that the feature will be rolled out through an over-the-air software update so Classic owners who are waiting for Wi-Fi Classing to arrive should keep an eye out for a new update over the coming days.
BB fans on T-Mobile have something else to look forward to as well. We’ve been hearing about the company’s first Android device for months now, which was recently confirmed by CEO John Chen himself, and multiple reports suggest that T-Mobile is going to carry the BlackBerry Priv when it arrives in the next couple of months.
