T-Mobile makes it official; Wi-Fi calling available on iOS 8

T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling requires no additional app to download, nor does it require you to activate anything. All you need to do is find a Wi-Fi connection and log on to it. Check the handset for the Wi-Fi calling icon, and you're good to go. The operator has 17 million enabled customer devices with 5 million customers using the feature every month.
Besides Wi-Fi calling, T-Mobile has just launched VoLTE in Seattle. This allows users to make and take phone calls over an LTE pipeline. So far, the service is available only for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Samsung Galaxy Light and the LG G Flex.

That has nothing to do with T-Mobile, my friend.

Maybe he thinks they will notice what he says. Just like those annoying posts people make on Facebook about someone who can't even see the post / will never see their post... "I love you so much daddy. You've been there through everything thick and thin. You always helped me. You this. You that. Blablabla yada yada"

What about WiFi calling is the great be-all and end-all? Back when minutes were sold in buckets, being able to make calls over a WiFi connection was compelling. But with unlimited voice, I don't see the value proposition. Am I missing something?

Google needs to add some native Wifi-calling to the next version of android.

WiFi calling counts against your data but not your minutes

Doesn't even the simplest plans nowadays offer unlimited calls and texts, so why would it matter if wifi-calling wasted minutes?

WiFi calling uses your WiFi to enhance your signal so you can make calls in low cell areas. Yes it does use your mins. If you have unlimited, great more power to you. If you don't have unlimited, watch how long you talk. I never heard WiFi calling using data. And yes WiFi calling should be on every phone but most of the carriers block it. T-Mobile doesn't. IO8 FINALLY got the capability lol
