    Anybody done this from Thailand? I've got an iPhone 6 that I'm bringing on vacation to stay up on emails and phone calls for work. Hoping that the Wi-Fi calling works as advertised. I am on AT&T.

    While I have not done it from Thailand, I had had success in China and Japan recently. The announcement from AT&T on March 22 was very helpful about allowing Wi-Fi calling to be supported outside of the US.

    Thank you! Keeping my fingers crossed that it will work.

    Used Verizon Wi-Fi calling from Mexico, and that seemed to work well (assuming there was a good Wi-Fi signal).

    AT&T has just announced that if you use wifi calling in another country to either place calls or receive calls to the united states they are free of charge. don't call anyone in thailand! and don't use cellular!

    i see dave 006 already mentioned this, but he didn't say it was free

    Use WhatsApp. Works very well. Just spent time talking to a buddy in Beijing with it. Quality is pretty good.

    Seems like Wi-Fi calling is even simpler and better.

    Wifi calling with AT&T lets you call any phone in the US - not just cellphones with Whatsapp installed. You can call land lines as well.

    Dave, to make the call back to the US number, did you have to dial + and then 1 before the area code and number or just the area code and number as if you were dialing within the US?
