    To preface, I have an iPhone 6s and am on Verizon.

    For the first time, I turned on Wi-Fi calling a few minutes ago. After enabling, my status bar changed to indicate I Wi-Fi calling was active.

    Out of curiosity (to test), I turned Wi-Fi off and indeed it showed Verizon LTE. I turned Wi-Fi back on, but the status bar never changed back to indicate that Wi-Fi calling was on.

    I have since turned it off and back on, reset network settings and restarted my phone but my status bar still only now says "Verizon" with the Wi-Fi symbol next to it.

    Has anyone encountered this issue? Does anyone know how to get Wi-Fi calling working again?

    Edit: It was back for 5 minutes, but has now disappeared again..

    Wi-Fi calling is selective, and dependent on network conditions. It won't just go to Wi-Fi calling when you're on Wi-Fi.

    But if you really want to make a Wi-Fi call, put your phone in airplane mode, and then turn on Wi-Fi.

    This. AFAIK only TMO favors WIFI calling over cellular radio calls at all times.
