    Actually it worked for a few minutes and then the WiFi calling disappeared but still shows as ON in settings. Will wait a bit but if not will definitely get the unit swapped for an AT&T one.

    Even in the betas, that sporadic disappearing while still on in the settings would happen. I think that's more of an AT&T problem than an iPhone problem.

    I have the same problem, I have a support ticket open with AT&T to resolve it. Did you open a support ticket? When I bought this phone Apple support told me that as long as I didn't activate the phone with T-Mobile I would have no trouble using it with AT&T.
    Why are people buying the T-Mobile version of the iPhone to use with their AT&T SIM card? Why not just buy the AT&T iPhone?

    For me - had no choice for an off-contract full price option when I ordered through the Apple Store App on launch day. My "T-mobile" version works perfectly on AT&T including the new WiFi calling. Not sure what's up with the others.

    Do you mean you wanted to buy an iPhone at full price and all that was available was the T-Mobile version? No AT&T was available?

    Yes. When I went to the store, the guy asked if I wanted an ATT one instead and I said sure. He looked but they didn't have the one I wanted. Never realized that it would impact wifi calling.

    Not sure if that was the case in store or if buying from a carrier. But I bought through the Apple Store app on my phone. Only option given to me for AT&T was via contract renewal. So I got the T-Mobile version instead. Didn't bother me. Has no real effect other than missing band 30.

    What is band 30 and why can't you get it with the T-Mobile iPhone?

    It's the new LTE band that ATT will be rolling out. It'll be awhile before it happens though.

    OK you guys, I'm going to ask something very very stupid so forgive me.....how do you use wifi calling? I'm on an unlimited voice plan so I'm not really needing it but I'm curious because so many people want it so badly.
    I want to know because if there are advantages to this that I'm not using I want to know!

    In settings, go to phone and switch on wifi settings. It will prompt you to enter some emergency contact info. Then once that's complete, the feature is on. It will then use your wifi network for voice calls. You will see the word "Wi-Fi" next to your carrier name at the top of the phone when enabled.

    Last night I took a call on it and it was noticeably clearer. I had forgotten I had this on but I wondered why it was so clear. Maybe it was wifi calling.

    Oh I'm sorry I wasn't clear. I've done that.
    What I mean to say is why.....is it a matter of clarity, not using minutes....I'm sorry to be dense...

    I don't know if ATT uses minutes or not when on wifi calling. I did read that T-Mobile doesn't use your minutes.

    If you're in an area where your cell signal isn't strong, and you are on wifi, you can benefit from that. I don't get great signal at my house, so wifi calling will be great to have for me.

    Also, if you travel internationally, and you are on wifi a lot, you could in theory use your phone for calls like normal. I don't do that but someone at work does and loves the feature for that reason.

    Wifi calling is only activated when you're connected to a wifi and your cellular signal becomes very low. It's not something that is on all the time. You'll see an icon AT&T Wi-Fi next to your wifi signal. Once you're back on a good cellular connection, it will turn itself off automatically.

    Now, if you want to test the wifi calling manually on your phone to see if it's working, all you need to do is put the phone on Airplane mode then turn on wifi. This will activate wifi calling even if you're in a place with good cellular signal.

    I used it a lot at work. We don't have a good cell signal inside inside our building. Actually, I have been using it since it was launched for the public beta testers a couple of months ago. It was only available for beta testers until it was made available to public this week and I really like it s lot. Saves me a lot of missed calls and the call quality is really good.

    Yah I haven't got access to WiFi at work. And I don't join public networks so I don't expect to be using it much. But I've got it sorted out on my device.

    Glad it helped! Still said enabled for me but wouldn't say AT&T WIFI on the top. Finally ended up returning my T-Mobile unlocked device for a SIM free one which basically is the same model as the AT&T one (A1634) and finally have WIFI calling working

    Glad you got it working. Sucks AT&T is making it work only on AT&T models. When I had my 6 Plus I had the Verizon version and was able to use WiFi calling on T-Mobile.

    Working on my A1687 no problem. All I did was stuck in my AT&T SIM card. Switched it on, went through the necessary acknowledgements, and it told me they wifi calling was activated. I have such poor service in my office that it immediately said wifi up in the status bar. Made a call to my wife to confirm it was working!
