    For some weird reason recently my Wifi Calling is intermittently connecting and disconnecting e.g. the signal bar has the carrier name and WIFI CALL beside it but then sometimes just goes back to the carrier name without the WIFI CALL status beside it. This issue only seems to have happened recently before 11.3.1 etc this issue never happened. I got onto my carrier who told me to try the sim in another phone and see if the same issue still occurs so i did i put it into my iPhone 6 and Wifi Calling signal status stays on permanently. However in saying this my iPhone 6 is not on 11.3.1 its on 11.2.5 or an older update purely as i dont use the phone anymore and since getting my iPhone 10 didn't bother updating it.

    Can anyone else please let me know if theyre seeing this too

    That's normal. It's not supposed to show wifi calling all the time. It's only supposed to use wifi calling if your cellular signal is weak or off. If your cellular signal is borderline, that would explain why it behaves as you say.

    Ah right that’s interesting. As before the update it would always stay saying WiFi calling regardless of the signal strength and when I turn the phone off and on it comes back saying WiFi calling in the signal bar

    Mine shows wifi calling only when it gets below about -108 signal strength. Above that it's LTE. -108 would be 1 bar or dot. When I'm in town, I rarely see wifi calling in my status bar, because the cellular signal there is good.

    Yeah that’s weird as mine shows all the time and it is now. As I said once in my house it comes on always but after 11.3.1 it intermits perhaps the carrier has changed this but doubt it as I put it into my iPhone 6 it stayed on permantetly

    Maybe WiFi calling works differently in Ireland /Europe than the us

    I don't know, but Verizon explains it on their site. If your cellular signal is good, why would you need wifi calling?

    True and fair point. But it’s weird. My carrier is targeting it as yes you may have excellent cell coverage but you can even better with WiFi calling so it keeps it’s on while under WiFi zone for the best experience you can get. If you understand what I mean

    Maybe the update improved your cellular signal.

    Maybe so. It’s a wired one anyway I use and love WiFi calling so I hope if it is a bug it’s fixed soon

    Mine is also on all the time, as it’s configured by my carrier to prioritize over cellular calls.
    I’ve seen Wi-Fi Calling from other carriers kick in only when network signal was low.

    ok cool. perhaps its a carrier thing then. did you notice the sudden intermittent behaviour of it dropping on and off since 11.3.1

    So you're never on cellular when there's wifi? It's intended to prioritize when cellular is weak or off. That's how it works with Verizon anyway. And AT&T.

    It's interesting because someone else brought it up in this thread.

    Turns out it was changed in 11.3 to enable itself when the signal bar is less than 2 bars which is a pity as I love being able to use it regardless of signal strength. has anyone else experienced issues with Wifi Calling since 11.3/11.3.1 update-32931a68-9e5a-443a-94f1-b435b32fff81.png

    Why would you want or need to use it if your cellular signal is good? What would be your benefit? I think the fact it worked all the time was the bug. They fixed it so it works now as it should.

    My cellular signal is usually not that good inside my house. So my wifi calling is on most of the time. But I can walk out in my yard, and the cellular signal goes way up. It's weird. Something in my house interferes with my signal. Both cellular and wifi. The only thing I can figure is, I have too much metal in or on the house. It's an older home with aluminum windows. Aluminum windows are horrible. LOL Whoever thought they would be great, should be hog tied and thrown in a river.

    Lol. Yeah that’s the same with the me it’s always on in my house too. And connects and works well. Since 11.3 they seemed to change it no big deal as majority of the time it does and I’ve good cell coverage anyway but I’m not gonna complain for better coverage in the house with WiFi calling

    Did you show wifi calling in your status bar even when you were out of range of any wifi signal? Or did it change to LTE or something else?

    No it only showed when it connected to WiFi. When out and about would drop back to just saying my carriers name and the 4g icon

    Gotcha. Well, the good news is you're seeing your cellular signal is good a lot of the time, with no need for wifi calling.
