    when I turnd on wi-if calling I get a message that's says "if you turn on Wi-Fi calling your other devices will no longer be able to make or receive calls through your iohone" what does this mean and why should I care?

    You have a TMobile or EE iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

    It means you won't be able to take a phone call on your iPad as you can do with iOS 8 on your iPhone and iPad. Assuming you even have an iPad. That will also apply to a Mac running OS X 10.10.

    I'm assuming it's because for the iPad and Mac to make calls the cellular connection from an iPhone is required. Wi-Fi calling replaces the cellular connection when active. Of course if you don't have an iPad or Mac or don't want to use them to make calls then it wouldn't matter. Or you can just switch it off whenever you want to make a call from Mac or iPad.
