i have an iPhone 6 Plus. Just enabled att wifi calling.
Is it free?
How can they charge you WiFi?
Yes it is.
I've heard stories where people were billed 30 grand because they used something they weren't supposed to so I am being cautious.
It's not active yet,is it?
Mines working as of today...
I really like it actually.
Went live today
If you use this wifi call thing you will be billed 40 grand actually.
Don't do it...
I just enabled it on my phone. I actually tried doing it last night and it didn't work. I'm located in Los Angeles.
I think it uses your plan minutes, so not free
You could check out the press release on AT&Ts website.
Can anyone confirm this?
I was wrong. It not using minutes
It uses minutes on T-Mobile. I realize you're on att, but I don't see why it would be different.
You're moving off their cellular network and making the call through your wifi network. Seems like a plus for them.
Charges: Domestic calls made/received within U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S.V.I. have no additional charge and won’t count against plan usage limits. For international long distance calls, international rates under your existing rate plan or international package apply.
Do charges apply for Wi-Fi Calling?
If you use Wi-Fi Calling to make or receive domestic calls from the U.S., Puerto Rico, or U.S. Virgin Islands, there are no extra charges. Also, these calls don’t count against your voice plan usage limits. For international long distance calls, international rates from your current rate plan or international package apply.
If you use Wi-Fi Calling to send or receive domestic or international messages, you’ll be charged based on your current rate plan or international package. These messages will also count against any usage limits.
Sweet stuff. I don't know why but I really fancy the idea of wifi calling and essentially never needing to use a cell tower. I hope I can just keep my iPhone in airplane mode from now and just wifi for everything.
I think it's a shame that they charge for the international calls. Surely they can route the call VOIP to the destination country and then engage the cell towers there. Hence negating the need for any international connections.
I admit that I'm not savvy on how the telocomms technology works though. It just seems like an opportunity to charge for something as customers expect to pay out for phone related activities whilst abroad. Keep safe and just use FaceTime Ausio, Skype, or Whatsapp calling.
No WiFi calling on my phone yet. Still a no go on ATT for me.
So anyone tried it yet? Mine recognizes the att network even on airplane mode do I think it's working.
If you mean tried calling through Wi-Fi, then yes. So long as the other caller is on VoLTE or Wi-Fi, the call quality is absolutely crisp. My apartment complex gets below average call quality. With this, my days calling near a window are over.
Great! Now hope the power don't go out...lol
Will att wifi calling work abroad?
So it's every bit as good as a call that connects HD Voice?
Yup. Both are very similar. Of course, both the caller and recipient has to be on either VoLTE or Wi-Fi.
