Default Wifi Calling missing from Galaxy S3 settings

Hi, everyone. My Galaxy S3 (with MetroPCS) is missing the wifi calling feature in the settings menu. It does not appear under the "more settings" tab in Wireless and Networks. Should I go to MetroPCS or is there a way I can fix this myself?

I couldn't find another thread with this issue. Thanks for the help!!

Do you by any chance have a white S3? Or is it blue?

You probably have the white CDMA version of the phone. That one doesn't have wifi calling. I don't know why some Metro store keep selling that one.

Well, they still have cdma. & from what I've read it will still be good with voLTE after the 2015 deadline for cdma

Still what is the point? Just release the white version with GSM and that's it.

If this is in fact the CDMA version of the phone, you can download Joyn from Metro and get WiFi calling that way. It's not quite as good as the native WiFi calling on the GSM phones, but it works.
