    Hi guys, wondering if anyone has seen this issue before and might know how to solve it. I am running the latest public beta software on my iPhone 6S, iPad mini 4, and MacBook Pro, and have wifi calling activated on all. My MacBook Pro makes local calls just fine without sending the call through my phone, but whenever I try to place a call on my iPad, it says "using your iPhone" when trying to make the call before telling me that the call has failed. I've tried disabling and reenabling wifi calling on my iPad to no avail. I figure this is probably just some beta weirdness but if anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them!

    Never mind! Figured it out. I ended up putting my iPhone in Airplane Mode, and then tried to initiate a call through my iPad. It gave me an expected error message, saying the call could not be placed, but then the next call I tried went through correctly as a local wifi call.
