    I'm experimenting with wifi calling on my iPhone 5S as I'm currently using a Cel-Fi RS1 booster for reception in my home.

    One big thing I've noticed: If I enable the ability to answer phone calls on any device, it disables Wi-Fi calling, which I would have been dependent on if I didn't have the signal booster.

    Is this limitation unique to the iPhone 5S or does this limitation also exist for the 6 and 6 Plus?

    That stinks. I guess my two choices are:

    - Keep the 4G signal booster, keep continuity enabled, but re-enable Wi-Fi calling whenever I travel. Does this mean that if I initiate a VoLTE call it will drop if I start the call outside my house and then enter?
    - Enable Wi-Fi calling and calls should hopefully hand-off between VoLTE and Wi-Fi when I'm using the iPhone 6. I lose Continuity. Anyone who visits my home who has T-Mobile suddenly has no reception unless I give them the password to my Wi-Fi network.

    Decisions, decisions...

    iOS 9 resolves this. I have cellular continuity and Wi-Fi Calling enabled.
