When I look in the Developer Member Center and do not see the update for 9.2 beta 4. Is this only an OTA release?

has anyone tried the AT&T numbersync feature? It seems like a good idea if you have all your devices connected to AT&T. For me, I only have the phone connected to AT&T and everything else uses the phone as the hotspot. Paying extra to buy the ipad with cellular and then paying 10 extra bucks a month does not make sense when the hotspot works perfectly.

I have tried AT&T wifi calling and that seems to do pretty well.

OC Baby!
You know what I would like to see - is network priority Wi-Fi vs Cell. I have T-Mobile with 1 bar of service in my house, yet it picks cell over wi-fi (sitting next to my router). Seems like you should be able to select what you prefer.

Wi-fi calling has been great but the numbersync feature has been causing failures sending text messages.

Here is a post I started about the subject. Currently, since Beta 3, the settings are not available to activate the feature. The last beta with the option was Beta 2.

Beta 4 seems to have fixed this for me. I will test more over the next few days but so far, the inability to send reliably and the ability to receive is gone. I can and have so far been sending and receiving with no errors.

Ewww apps now 'Slide in' when you open them... Looks odd.

EDIT:

Now apps seems to load like they did before.. must have been a bug...

I checked out your thread. It seems to be all about wifi calling. This I am using and it seems to work pretty well, although I have not tried texting with it. My question, however, was not about wifi calling but about numbersync.

I am just looking for use cases where numbersync would make sense instead of wifi-calling and hand-off.

This thread looks like a Twitter feed from a group of middle school girls. “Downloading now” “Not showing for me” “I got it” “Where is it” “Slow DL”
don't forget "mine is this big, how big is yours???"

The whole thread looks to be about numbersync to me.

I would read through again. It hardly covers wifi calling. Numbersync is to use your phone number to make calls on devices that by themselves do not have calling abilities or they rely on your iPhone directly connected to make a call. Numbersync will allow you to use your iPad, Wifi connected and nowhere near your phone, to make and receive calls as if it was a giant iPhone. It works well. I can place my iPhone in airplane mode and talk through my iPad as if it were my phone and when calling people they have no idea since the number they see on their caller ID is that of my cellphone. My iPad is not a cellular model. I do this with my Apple Watch too.

I would read through the thread again since it does indeed cover Numbersync as its subject.

I should step back just a bit here and say that yes, this is to do with WiFi calling but not the WiFi calling feature exactly. It is to use WiFi calling on devices with WiFi without needing the phone phone nearby to do it.

Can confirm that 3D Touch animation on apps is still about 30fps on the 6s Plus, whereas it's 60fps on the 6s. Bummer. I was hoping that one of these betas would finally fix that.

And you're referring to 9.2 beta 4?
