    Is anyone on a device other than an iPhone 6/6+ finding the AT&T wifi calling activated for their phone on the iOS 9 GM? Was activated for 6/6+ users during the beta. Trying to find out if the circle was widened post-GM release. I do not have it on my 5s on 9.1 PB1.

    I believe the AT&T wifi calling is more dependent on geographical location/cellular market than device/ios version...

    Actually had it from an AT&T rep on an AT&T forum that the beta was device limited. See https://forums.att.com/t5/Device-Fea.../4298422#M7233

    My suspicion is that this is a carrier setting and if it is to come at all to any device lower than 6/6+, it will be done after public release of iOS 9.

    I have the toggle to turn wifi calling on, but when I try it, I get a message that it's not available in my area yet.

    Ah. I know 6 and 6+ have this option. I'm looking to see if any 5 or 5s people do. It's not clear yet if AT&T is going to provision those phones with it even though they are capable of it.

    Unfortunately, this is correct. Perhaps the biggest feature I was looking forward to with ios9 was wifi calling. I need it. But, I enabled it only to learn that it's not yet available, which is both surprising and disappointing since I live in the 16th largest US city.

    One of the big new anticipated features in the just-released iOS 9 is Wi-Fi calling for AT&T iPhone customers. Though Sprint and T-Mobile users have been able to use Wi-Fi calling on the iPhone for some time, AT&T and Verizon have yet to deploy it. Wi-Fi calling makes up for gaps or poor coverage in a carrier's phone service by offloading calls to a Wi-Fi network and routing them that way.
    While Wi-Fi calling with AT&T iPhones was expected to be available broadly with the launch of iOS 9, the carrier now says that it is delaying the availability of it pending approval from the FCC. Those that had beta tested iOS 9 prior to launch have been able to use the feature and will continue to do so, according to the carrier.
    No launch date has been provided
    "AT&T tested Wi-Fi Calling through the iOS 9 beta and we are prepared to support commercial launch of the service once approved by the FCC," said the carrier in a statement provided to Phone Scoop. The specific approval that AT&T is waiting for relates to features for hearing impaired, which have traditionally relied on TTY technology. Wi-Fi calling uses a different technology, called real-time text (RTT), to provide a similar service.
    As it stands now, the FCC has not provided a time table for when Wi-Fi calling will be approved for use by AT&T phones. AT&T has also not indicated when it will deliver the feature to devices other than the iPhone, though we expect that won't happen until after the FCC approval comes.
