Anyone know of a PAYG sim that allows WiFi calling?

Does anyone know of a PAYG that allows WiFi calling? I'm in a miserable dead zone. I'm currently on tesco mobile, but to be fair it doesn't matter what network I use, signals always crap. The providers I've looked at only seem to offer it on contracts. I only need a phone for the few months of the year I'm home.

Any thoughts?

EE do it in contract, dont know about PAYG though
Could just get the cheapest tariff on Sky Mobile and data will rollover on the months you don't use?

To see if the network actually works in the dead zone and if it does then he doesn’t need WiFi calling if it doesn’t he still has the option to use for WiFi calling.
By wifi calling am I right you are talking about apps like Google Duo or Skype? Or something else?

Ah I understand. My vodafone Smart Prime 7 is not supported to do this. Vodafone does support calls over wifi on these devices

but you need a special Pay monthly Red Extra or Red Entertainment plan, or a Red or Red Value Bundle so you can cross Vodafone off your list.

Three PAYG definitely works with WiFi calling on my Honor 9 lite
Looks like I need to get 3 PAYG, or find a pay monthly cancellable contract with someone. Tesco mobile and smarty are both no sadly

I have three PAYG on my Huawei P30 but I don't think it does WiFi calling. How would I find out?

You won't notice functionally, but if you're on a call, it'll show a different icon on the notification bar. And if you've got a decent signal on 4g, I'm not sure it actually kicks in

Check youtube for how to turn it on. Most android it's just settings, connections, advanced, WiFi calling....
I know you didn't ask about Giffgaff, OP, but in case anyone else is wondering - Giffgaff don't have a Wifi Calling facility (just looked it up), had no idea, thought every provider had this option. Post from a year ago here

"NEITHER of the two largest MVNOs using O2 (giffgaff and Tesco Mobile) offer WiFi calling. I know that Sky use O2"

Yeah, it's a bit annoying. I'm looking for monthly contracts, looks like there are only a few available.

It will need enabling in the settings (possibly under sim card mobile network)
