    I'm running 9.3 Beta 3. Wifi calling with AT&T Numbersync is amazing. I can initiate a call from my Mac in the Facetime App, and I can hand the call off to my iPhone. But what about in the other direction? What's the story on whether it is possible or how to do it? How cool would it be to be on the iPhone, walk into the office and transfer to the "desk phone"?

    To the best of my knowledge I don't think there is a way to go from the phone to the Mac.

    However I'm curious what this has to do with iOS 9.3, Att, numbersync and/or wifi calling? None of that stuff is required to initiate a call via FaceTime (using your cellular number) on Mac/iPad than transition to the iPhone.

    This isn't possible yet - not sure why!

    I am sure sbplat was simply adding a passing comment regarding his positive experience with numbersync and/or wifi calling.

    The only device I know that can hand a call to the phone is the Apple Watch.
