With the rollout of Wifi calling on the Galaxy Note 3 yesterday I was very excited to be able to use my phone on a reliable network (since I get 4G service in omly about 20% of Atlanta when the service doesn't randomly drop). However when I set it up now I get a constant reminder asking me if I would like to setup a new Wifi address. Including the fact that the little wifi calling icon appears. Is there a way to disable this without rooting my phone? I already have a bajillion icons because of all of the neat bloatware included on the phone. Thanks!
The notification on my phone is to save your location for 911. I save it and the notification pops up within 5 seconds. Its extremely annoying. The service does work though. Calls are crystal clear.

So far I've tried to completely turn off the wifi calling feature then turning it back on, and I still have a notification on the top of my screen asking me to setup my wifi address. I've also completed the 911 consent on the device multiple times, power cycled the phone, and removed the battery. Unfortunately after all of the steps listed above, the wifi address setup notification still remains when the wifi calling feature is turned on. Fortunately, its only a minor quirk in the wifi calling feature that will hopefully get ironed out in future updates. The notification does not effect the performance of my wifi calling or the phone.
I am having the same issue. The service works great, but it is annoying to be constantly reminded to do what I have already done multiple times.
Note: this is occurring on the same network, I have not set this up for anywhere but at home.
I also have this exact same problem on both of my accounts Note 3 phones. Exactly the same symptoms. Wifi calling works perfectly, but I keep getting the annoying prompt that says "Wi-Fi Calling ready" "Service is on. Would you like to update your profile address?". If I update my address it goes away for about 30 seconds but then comes right back into my notifications again.
Love the wifi calling, but wish the constant prompts to update my address would stop.
And yes SprintCare, I did follow all the steps you said and it's still doing the same thing.
Long press on the notification on the drop down status bar. APP Info will appear. Click that. It will take you to Sprint Wifi app info and uncheck "show notifications"
