    Even if Apple Pay is enabled, I don't think it'll be actually usable until the POS systems support it?

    I don't quite know how POS systems work (never been a cashier), but i've noticed some stations say what apps they support while others simply work with any kind of contact payment. Meanwhile some places, like Best Buy, said they won't use Apple Pay, but I know that they have NFC payment available.

    Someone's who's more versed in this, can you just start using Apple Pay at any vendor that supports tap to pay, or will they actually have to have their POS system support Apple Pay?

    From what I've heard, it will work with any register that accepts payments from the chips in some credit cards.

    Best Buy has stopped taking contactless, which is why they are saying they are not compatible. Even if the readers are there they've disabled the capability.

    Hmm... Maybe it's the wording in the release notes:

    Phone
    Note
    To activate Wi-Fi Calling functionality for T-Mobile (U.S. only), follow these steps:

    Go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling.
    Toggle the Wi-Fi Calling switch to ON.
    If the carrier does not have the user’s registered emergency address, you will be asked to add it before the feature is activated.

    Just installed on both the iPhone 5s and iPad Air - I'm hoping they may've nailed the 5GHz WiFi issue, though the release notes didn't seem to make any note of that.

    (Edit: nope, failed after a little while on 5GHz. Back to 2.4, for now)

    Please do, I think we would all like to hear if Apple Pay is enabled! :D
    (Even if apple doesnt have the service turned on, it would be fun to play with)

    The diff is now the status bar will read 'T-Mobile Wi-Fi' when WiFi calling is engaged. Before there was no way to tell if it was working.
