I've got the P Smart FIG-LX1 C432 variant. With an iDmobile SIM, wifi calling connects, I get the 'iDMobile Wi-Fi Calling' on the status bar, I can make calls over wifi, but I can't receive any calls. The calls just go through to answerphone. I can receive calls as normal without wifi calling.
I've tested the phone with an EE SIM card, and wifi calling incoming and outgoing works. Curiously, with the EE SIM, I get 'EE Wi-Fi Calling' on the status bar, plus a VoWIFI icon right next to it. With the iDMobile SIM, I only get 'iDMobile Wi-Fi Calling' but not the VoWIFI symbol. Could that be an indicator of some incomplete wifi calling registration?
Has anyone tried iDMobile wifi calling with their P Smart?

Thank you for the explanation.
If this is the case, shouldn't that be stated on the list of compatible phones at https://www.idmobile.co.uk/help-and-advice/wifi-calling ?
Other networks like EE state that only handsets purchased directly from them will support WiFi calling, whereas iDmobile only gives a list of handsets and states they should be updated to the latest firmware in order to work.
It's misleading and had led to me wasting a lot of time and money.
