    Does anyone have AT&T wifi calling enabled on IOS 9 yet? I keep getting their too-cheery "Check back later!" message. My work phone from Sprint has had wifi calling for months now, and it really lives up to the hype.

    Yeah, I'd heard that. Gosh, if only AT&T had some way of knowing that this would be included in IOS 9, so they could get that done beforehand...

    I have it on my phone. It's been active since late August here in Utah, but it doesn't really work for me. It works for texting, but with phone calls I can hear who I'm calling but they often can't here me and I end up turning off wifi and it works

    I'd rather see VoLTE implemented before Wi-Fi calling. Both have their advantages but I'm not always near a Wi-Fi base.

    It works for me, but I think I'm in a beta testing area.

    It works for me also since I got it while running the IOS9 beta. It will be interesting to see if it carries over to my 6s which I am getting Friday.

    I just wish they went with the implementation like TMO did. Theirs is FLAWLESS. The ATT design of cell first wifi second is bizarre. TMO has it better. Calling prefers WIFI where available. Makes it fun when traveling internationally, and using it at home on TMO is just like a home phone quality\speed of connecting the call.

    Does anyone know if installing the second public beta of iOS 9.1 enables this?

    I am sure that it is account related. I just activated my 6S. I had the Wi-Fi Calling on my iPhone 6 since I was in the 9.0 public beta. When I went into setting, I was able to turn it on. I did not restore from a backup before doing this.

    I have VoLTE in my area (South Louisiana). We got it only about a month ago, so they're probably still rolling it out.

    Been using it for several weeks in Central Colorado, on iOS 9.0/9.1 Public Beta. Tried enabling on my wife's iOS GA, no joy.

    We have had VoLTE here for a while as well. WiFi calling is superior voice quality to my ears.

    I am not sure what the priority is, seems that when I get 4-5 bars of ATT, WiFi calling disables. Since most of my home gets 0-3 bars, I'm generally seeing the "AT&T WIFI" icon in the upper left corner which indicates WiFi calling is active.
