It appears to be a setting on the OS itself, like a voip setting:

see below: there is no wifi calling app:
The "app" as I understand it is baked into the kernel I believe. But either way, I think its a mistake because there needs to be changes to the OS and I don't think Google changed anything for their version.

Why cant it be done via SIP/VOIP. Since wifi calling also works on iPhone via an app on appstore it can definately run using googles voip integration in Android

From what I know, T-Mobile has prepaid micro-sim cards because I purchased one for my iPhone on prepaid. If you're already a subscriber, you can just purchase a new micro-sim and have your number transferred over to it.

Idk, I haven't heard of WiFi calling working in Apple's app store. I don't exactly know the exact process at which T-Mo achieves the ability for WiFi calling and whether or not they can include an app in Play store or not.

But unless T-Mo lied to one of their biggest supporters when they said no WiFi calling, my call right now is we will not see it.

But if they do allow it on iPhone, I see no reason they can't allow it on this phone. Not sure what would hold them back and that would be an unfortunate omission to this phone.

WiFi calling still uses your monthly minutes, so not a big feature, unless you dont have good coverage

Yes it does. It did on my GS3, especially if you are on a prepaid plan.

Best reason to get this is the price and the screen.Worst reason is the storage capacity.

I don't connect to wifi as long as I have signal. Stream videos, browse the web, and some apps.. According to my Data Usage, FB used nearly 400mb already, shopkick 325mb, google play store 220mb, chrome 500mb, internet browser (stock browser to stream flash videos) 220mb, YouTube 111mb, tether 110mb and so on.. and I still have 6 days in my cycle, going to consume more data in the next few days Wink

I'm on AT&T post-paid plans, "unlimited" LTE data, just hoping I won't get caught for tethering.. Only tether to tablets and phones though.
Why wouldn't you connect to wifi? The battery life is much better indoors on wifi.

ohhh, that's great, i have the classic family value plan for t-mo.

you are saying i can just walk in to any t-mo store and get a free micro sim? and have all my stuff transferred over to that new sim?

or do i have to pay for it?

just wondering before i walk into store with lack of knowledge.

I love slick deals! thanks guys for always being so damn helpful

It's not a nano sim its a micro sim. If you have T-Mo service atm then you can go into a store and they will give you a micro sim. Same if you are planning to sign up.

If you are going prepaid then I suggest ordering the 99c from their website and cutting it.

Just remember to get the right cutter, you are going micro not nano.

If you are asking about ST T-Mo sims, they don't sell the micro's so you will need a cutter for them too.



Maybe in x amount of months they will have used ones ppl trade in. But nope, very very unlikely if not impossible they will be selling it.

Why do you always assume that postpaid features should be on prepaid accounts? If you want the features, then sign up for postpaid. If you want to stay prepaid, then stop whining.Big Grin
