T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling coming to Nexus 6 early next year
posted by Alan F. / Oct 15, 2014, 2:59 PM
Using Wi-Fi calling means that Nexus 6 users will be able to stay connected via voice or text, even in an area where there is no cellular connectivity. T-Mobile also offers Wi-Fi calling with the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus. If you live in an area, or a home, with sketchy 4G LTE signals, Wi-Fi calling is an indispensable feature.
T-Mobile will launch the Nexus 6 on November 12th for $0 down and 24 monthly installment payments of $27.08.

So will that feature only be available on a phone bought from T Mobil? Or will an unlocked phone from the Play store also allow WiFi calling on the T Mobil network?

Do unlocked phones get OTA updates when you put in a T-Mobile SIM? If they do, then likely the unlocked phone will support Wi-Fi calling with T-Mobile. Otherwise, probably not.
