    Yep, and I use it with Xfinity voice. I have 2 remote phones and I can also use it with my iPhone. There's also Facebook Messenger.

    WiFi calling is only new for Verizon. It has been enabled for AT&T and T-Mobile for a while.

    Been using wifi calling on Sprint for over a year. The clarity of the calls is crystal clear compared to regular calling.

    Good question! What device is it? It works on my wife's iPhone 6 and my 6s but not sure about anything before those.

    Do you not see the option in settings? If you go to Settings -> About do you get a carrier update? Should have been one with a recent update.

    The other thing you should check, and I can get the exact name, is in Verizon wireless account. I think it's called "advanced calling" or similar. You will likely need that. I don't think there's a charge for it.

    Love ITTTT!!!!

    Not sure if the 5s is eligible (it's not clear on Verizon's site). Make sure you have advanced calling/HD voice enabled on your account:

    You can do it online I am pretty sure! But giving them a call works too maybe they have a promo for your account

    May have to reboot after they enable it. Let me know!

    They said the 5s wasn't compatible. But I've read even on the Verizon site that it was.

    Hmm. Did you at least enable the HD calling? That way you're at least ready

    The only problem with joining the Public Beta Program is that there is no going back to the Production OS. Even when I got a new ipad Mini, and updated the new one with my Apple ID it too was enrolled in the Beta Program. Not all of them are rock solid so you can be screwed if you get a bad build.

    Incorrect. You gotta know what you're doing and how to do it.

    How do I get a shipping version of iOS back on my iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch?
    Always back up your iOS device before installing beta software. To get a shipping release of iOS on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can simply install the final version of the software you are testing when it appears in Software Update. If you would like to go back to a previously released version, you must first erase the beta software, then re-install the latest shipping version of iOS, and finally restore from your previously saved iTunes backup.

    Edit to add... the reason you got the beta program on the new iPad Mini is you restored a back-up from the old device that included the beta profile installed on the old device on the new one...

    This is mostly for Verizon but other carriers offer it as well. It's not widely available on Verizon just yet, only on the latest betas. When 9.3 is released, it should be out for all users that update. I'm quite liking it so far!
