    Prior to today, toggling Wifi calling on iOS9b5 brought me straight to the "Oops" screen.

    I tried it again today and I'm now presented with a wifi calling trial page with a legal agreement. If I agree to the trial, I return to the "Oops" page.

    Clearly AT&T is about to launch a beta of wifi calling. Anyone getting past the Oops page now?

    I'm getting a different Oops page than this morning. I check every morning. Been waiting for this for YEARS!

    Settings > Phone ... it's the first entry in the CALLS section.

    It doesn't work on older models... 5S and higher, I believe.

    thx to everyone. found it. tried to activate it and got the 'Oops' message. guess it's not quite ready yet. I'm sure there will be a front page post when it becomes functional.

    I have installed IOS 9.0 (13A4325c) on my iPhone 5s and I not have the option to activate WIFI calling?

    Settings> Phone> Calls - the first entry is "Calls on Other Devices"

    Now getting: "We can't turn on Wifi calling for your account. Think this message is a mistake? Ask the person who can make account changes to call us. The number is 800.331.0500".

    Gosh I hope this happens soon. Here in Vermont cell service isn't as prevalent as wifi.

    It says in the disclaimer message that its currently just a trial service. Texas makes sense especially if near the Dallas area.

    As an employee of AT&T, I can honestly say that there has been no announcement of Wifi calling. When I updated to beta 5, I showed my boss and she was definitely interested. The level I am at, I know everything AT&T does about a week before they announce it.

    That's wonderful. The level I'm at doesn't exist because I'm not an employee. All I can tell you is I tried and it completed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Trust me, I'm just as excited, I bet this comes out with iOS 9 in the fall.

    Well.. I called my local AT&T Wireless Store and had no clue when WIFI calling was to be activated. I am in New Jersey. Also I called Apple Support and they indicated that the WIFI Calling option is only presented in the Settings> Phone> when it is available. So I guess I wait?

    I get a new message as of today that says: "To Enable Wi-Fi calling on this account contact At&t". No more Oops! error.
