WiFi calling settings not on Pixel 4a purchased from Republic

I have a Pixel 4a purchased from Republic. I’ve noticed that the “WiFi Calling” setting in “Call Settings” is not available, nor is it available in “Network & Internet” - Mobile Network - Advanced (phone has Android 11).
If I move to another provider and want to use their WiFi calling capability, will that setting return when I switch SIMS or has this setting been deleted because it was purchased from Republic?

Hi @haroldb.odix86 Welcome back to the community. That switch isn’t available because Republic doesn’t use the native wifi calling, but rather their own wifi calling controlled by the Republic App.

That said, the phone is completely unmodified by Republic so if another carrier uses the built-in wifi calling, then their SIM would make the option available.
