Who has gotten ATT wifi calling to work on the watch without the iPhone since ATT enabled it?
I wouldn't think that would work... but just my guess.
It's supposed to work as part of Apple continuity. Watch OS2 Beta testers have shown it's possible.
Apple says if you phone had connected to that WiFi hub it should work.
I still have my doubt and have even less a desire to make calls on my watch.
It's not supported at the moment. Only TMobile supports this feature. There is another thread on this topic.
Wait, do you mean ATT does not support wifi calling at all, or just not on the watch?
And is this the thread you mean? It wasn't specifically about ATT wifi calling.
Or this thread which doesn't address ATT in particular, or what's happened since ATT switched on wifi calling:
I found this link on the general ATT wifi calling thread:
According to this member it appears as though ATT doesn't allow call continuity for wifi calling, even though they offer it for the regular LTE network. Odd.
I was answering your question. Wifi calling does not work on the watch without the phone (except of the phone is on T-Mobile).
So does ANYONE have this working with ANY provider?
Yes. It works with T-Mobile.
So to clarify, your phone can be at home connected to WiFi and you could be at a friends house with your Watch and you can make/receive calls using your watch by connecting to your friend's WiFi?
Yes. As long as the watch is on WiFi, it can make and receive calls. The phone can be off. (My iPad can make and receive calls too.)
On the condition that you've been to the friend's house with your iPhone + AW connected to wifi, in order to make it a known network. Obviously that's what you mean by as long as it's on wifi, as the AW is incapable of initially connecting to wifi on its own.
I have AT&T and I turned on wifi calling yesterday. I turned off Bluetooth on my phone which should kill the connection to the watch. Once the watched showed the cloud icon meaning connected to wifi I made a call no problem. I did not try receiving a call though.
I'm on AT&T with wifi calling. I put my iPhone 6s in airplane mode and I could not call from my watch. I then took the iPhone out of airplane mode and just shut Bluetooth off, still no work. The Watch works just fine when it can connect through the iPhone. iPhone is running iOS 9.0.2 Watch is running watchOS 2.0.
Same here. Unless there's a trick, it just doesn't work.
Did you both go into the iPhone settings and flip the switch for wifi calling?
And here. Feel like I'm missing something.
Yes, that's about the only way I have reception in my house. I live in a rural area so maybe AT&T wifi coverage is different here than where you are.
The stuff I have read so far and with friends on AT&T, AT&T does not support this yet. Here is a screen shot of what it looks like when WiFi calling is fully enabled. Notice the text below the on/off slider is a little different than when you have the "iPhone is nearby" variation.
Yeah, that's different than AT&T
The other display looks like this so you would think it would work.
Yep. wi-fi calling is on, but phone still have to be on for me to make a call.
The "allow calls on" slot on my phone is empty. My watch doesn't even show up there.
Mine shows all of my other macs and iPads .... But not my Apple Watch. Bummer...
I notice that same condition also. ATT/wifi calling enabled. iPads and Macs, no watch.
