LG Nexus 4 won't support T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling
Not having Wi-Fi calling means you miss out on a feature that can save you battery life and offer you loud and clear phone conversations. But adding a feature associated with an individual carrier would seem to go against the idea behind the Nexus program anyway. We're not sure if the lack of Wi-Fi calling is actually going to stop a T-Mobile customer from picking up the device. Besides, without an LTE radio, and with support for T-Mobile's blazing fast HSPA+42 pipeline, there is another good reason for T-Mobile customers to pick up the LG Nexus 4.
The LG Nexus 4 is expected to launch November 13th in the Google Play Store priced at $299 for the 8GB version and $349 for the 16GB model. It will launch later next month at T-Mobile for $199 with a signed two-year pact.

I am getting this phone and using AT&T. I can deal with no LTE as HSPA+ works good enough. But that price, those specs, no carrier bloat ware, no waiting for updates cant be resisted.

What the hell are you going on about? Calm down, I wasn't making any rude remarks about you or T-mobile, I was just saying I personally don't have a problem with it. Relax, it wasn't a personal attack lol

Will the carriers please all get on board with this feature as an app? Then we can get rid of our femtocells.

Is wifi calling a feature that can only be added by the carrier?
Perhaps it can be added as a app or with a custom rom?

it is actually built into the software. Its not just an app, unfortunately.

Like remixfa said, software standard for TMO. The upside to having crappy signal with wifi available, that router turns into your own tower.

Hope it's not bloated with T-Mobile stuff. As long as it's not, I'm getting it.
