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!

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.

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.

It says in the disclaimer message that its currently just a trial service. Texas makes sense especially if near the Dallas area.
Yeah I didn't read all that honestly. I just saw the thread figured I'd give it a try and BOOM lol

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.
