It would be nice to have and i hope it comes soon.
They're probably trying to figure out a way to charge you for it.Anyone heard when verizon is getting wifi calling?
Same people that were first saying verizon doesn't need the iPhone.
T-Mobile is in the process of rolling out VoLTE. You probably have it if you live in an area with a big population. However, VoLTE won't make as much of a difference since T-Mobile uses GSM and therefore can already do Voice+Data at the same time. The only benefit would be higher quality calls.this is exactly why i'm moving to T-Mobile come the new year when my damn contract is finally up. it's just nice to know WiFi Calling will be there if the circumstances present themselves. between T-Mobile already supporting WiFi Calling and their Music Freedom program, i could care less that their coverage isn't nearly like Verizon's.
does T-Mobile support VoLTE? or do they not have it anywhere since they have WiFi Calling?
I can see it now. You have to buy a special router from them for it to work for $199.00 that then doubles back and tracks all of your browsing at home for their ad network.They're probably trying to figure out a way to charge you for it.
Most likely a $20 a month surcharge or some other slimy way to nickel and dime you while they increase profits.
The usual Verizon way. Bend over customers
Umm, at home. I have a weak 4g signal outside and in my 1930s apartment it drops to 1x and sometimes 0 bars. Wifi calling would help me here and also when I travel for work and have no plans on going back to a specific country and therefore do not want to buy a local sim to make a few calls.Verizon stated recently as a shot at Tmobile that they weren't planning on implementing wifi calling because according to them, their network is stable enough and has enough coverage to not need wifi calling. Instead, they are investing in VOLTE, XLTE, and 5G.
Funny! At the house we were in last year, they had to send my husband a micro cell because there is no service in that house in the middle of well populated area. We are in Los Angeles County. Also, it would help in the hills above Beverly Hills where there are few towers and most everyone has dead zones crossing from the San Fenrnando Valley to the Westside.Verizon stated recently as a shot at Tmobile that they weren't planning on implementing wifi calling because according to them, their network is stable enough and has enough coverage to not need wifi calling.

Our Att microcell was so much easier than our VeriZon Microcell. Not sure why. I prefer wifi calling tremendously already because I can extend my wifi range in my house much easier than the microcell. Once it drops off your are out of luck. The microcells can't cover the houses we have lived in. I could only talk in certain rooms.I live in a dead zone for Verizon. Literally 1/4 mile from the house I get 4-5bars LTE on Verizon. In my yard I get 1-2bars. Inside I get 1 bar LTE or 3 bars 3G. Sometimes I see 1x. I bought a Verizon microcell. It randomly shuts off and would slow traffic on my network even when not in use. Plus the GPS antenna is so weak it has to basically be in a window to get a signal.
I similarly have poor reception for ATT. My in-laws have ATT so we got an ATT microcell for them. I can keep that microcell anywhere and no problems with GPS. It runs for months at a time without any problems. I've had ATT in the past and had so many issues with billing and customer service, we switched to Verizon. I would never go back to ATT.
If Verizon doesn't get wifi calling in the next 6 months, I'll find a different provider. I guess Tmobile is next.
Seriously! Hilarious!! I sort of wonder where these people live that they can't fathom someone having wifi...and gasp...no Verizon coverage.
They don't really think the lack of wifi calling is a bragging point. They're just trying to counter the press from T-Mobile with some PR spin.I feel like I read somewhere that said Verizon was planning on rolling it out at some point, but it wasn't a top priority.
But really, things like this are why I hate Verizon. They treat their customers like absolute garbage, they sniff out any little penny they can scrape out of customers pockets, and the way they've been doing things lately is just.. Confusing. They're literally doing nothing to attract new customers. What, change your plans and make it out that your customers are stupid? Raise your prices even more? Then do a whole lot more nothing? They are literally using their lack of Wi-Fi calling as a bragging point! Why!?! That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. So, Verizon, you're *proud* that that "awful" carrier "T-Mobile" (which, for the record, is stealing a lot of your customers) can cover somewhere that you can't?
It's the arrogance. I truly do not understand why Verizon, the company that constantly brags about how it has the best coverage, is going out of their way to AVOID adding a HUGE expansion to their coverage all at once.
Verizon, just stop.
