    I have a iPhone 6S+ on iOS 9.1 and have stayed on 9.1 to remain jailbroken.

    The latest carrier update allows wifi calling when outside the US.

    Being on 9.1, iTunes nor the iPhone prompt to update to the latest carrier update.

    Questions...

    a) would it be possible to manually update the carrier profile to avail of these new features?

    b) how?

    No.
    To enable wifi calling you will need to update your ios version.
    From AT&T's site:
    "Wi-Fi Calling is currently available on compatible iPhones with iOS 9.3 or later."

    To use AT&T Wi-Fi Calling
    To use Wi-Fi Calling you'll need:
    • A Wi-Fi Internet connection.
    • A Wi-Fi Calling capable device.
      • Devices include iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and iPhone SE with iOS 9.3 or later.
    • A postpaid AT&T wireless account provisioned with HD Voice.

    Thanks for copying and pasting from ATT's website. You have a career as a ATT customer care rep ahead of you. WiFi calling has been available since iOS 9 has been released. It's just the most recent carrier update which enables it while outside the US. But thanks!

    It sounds like the most recent carrier update requires iOS 9.3 to work.

    Since your jailbroken you should probably have this thread moved into the correct section. Maybe there is some jailbreak only method to force the carrier update.

    Sorry, I missed the JB part you mentioned on the 1st post.
    Try posting or moving this to the JB section to see if anyone has a way to install the latest AT&T .ipcc via cydia, ifile or other method to get it to work without losing your JB.

    It's been moved. Haven't gotten a lot of feedback as you can see. I thought in the old days you could update your carrier file without touching the OS. HMMM.

    I would think more would be interested since everyone is stuck with old iOS versions now because of no jailbreak availability.

    There were some carrier hacks for this kind of thing a while back. Specifically on iOS 8.x firmwares. They got some attention, but the other shoe dropped when people discovered that they had inadvertently cut off their carrier network connection (ie. "No Service").

    A few people were then asking around in here for replacement carrier bundles. I was able to help one person at the time with a Sprint carrier bundle which got that person back online. But the issues I read about prevented me from trying any of the carrier hacks myself.

    I suppose that the interest in them has probably died down considerably because of this problem.

    All I really can answer you with.

    Oh I'm simply talking about using the latest carrier profile, not an unofficial\modified one. Guess I'll just hold off.

    You can try and see if iTunes will allow you to update to the 24.1 ipcc carrier bundle file
    http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS9.3/ca...D0C-11E5-947E-3111BE379832/ATT_US_iPhone.ipcc

    Although I feel like it won't work because there'll be integrity checks to ensure that the iOS version is supported


    At the very least, you will need CommCenter to install a non-supported carrier bundle. Even with CommCenter, the official carrier bundle might need to get edited to make sure there won't be any checks that would result with "No Signal"

    I completely forgot about the carrier bundle checking. Crud.... maybe I won't risk it, don't wanna be stuck with no service and have to figure my way back. Darn I really want the international wifi calling. Guess I'll stick with using my t-mobile phone for now then till a jailbreak comes for 9.3
