Wifi calling??

Hello, does anyone have any ideas if/when Sprint will enable Wifi Calling on the iPhones? I work in a building where there's no cell signal except AT&T (with repeaters). While my work phone (AT&T) is fine, my personally phone is Sprint

This is a very sore point for me, as T-Mobile is now offering Wifi Calling on the iPhones so it will work at my workspace where there is wifi... I'm hoping to stay with Sprint, but not if I can't use my phone while I'm at work.

Just a little heads up don't go thru Sprint to get wifi calling they will tell you it is not available. That is what they told me about my Moto X. Go to your app store and download Google Voice. It should already have the Sprint wifi link in it.  download it and set it up. GV has a lot of issues I have had it for months and have had many problems. You need the lint for wifi calling. Sign out of it. Then get Google Hangouts Dialer. hangoutd Dialer ises GV's phone number for wifi calling. Hangouts works a lot better than GV with less issues and more functonallity. You cam make calls, SMS, and video calls and much more. Eventually Google will phase out GV and use Hangoutd anyway.Try this it works for me. Good luck.

RDK927,

That is an interesting idea. I noticed you posted it for an Android device. I'm playing with the Hangouts now on my iPhone. I was able to make outgoing calls via my GV number. Incoming calls are a little flaky as the phone doesn't always ring and register. Also picking up the calls is not seamless as I would like.

Re: Wifi calling??

I had the same issue.If you are running through s router w/WiFi then you need to make a full connection. Just because you turn on the WiFi doesn't mean you get a full connection. What you have to do is go to your router page and click on wireless and you will be asked for a code. You can find this code in settings, WiFi and look for WPS pin entry. The code is there. Entry it into the router control page and hit register. Now you will have a full and protected connection. The wifi should be faster too. This may correct the incomming call issue. Wifi over the internet is a little tricky. Too much traffic. I hope this helps.
