    Wi-Fi Calling doesn't work on Nexus devices.

    There's nothing to verify because the Nexus only has stock Android and stock Android doesn't include wifi calling.

    I assume you mean does Tmobile's wifi calling work? That's already been answered.

    If you look around the cool interwebs, you can easily use google voice to call on wifi from basically any android device.

    That doesn't help for receiving calls & texts to your phone and phone number unless you port your number to Google Voice (unless I am missing something)?

    You would have to give out your Google Voice number instead, and personally I've tried that route (if you can't reach me try texting or calling this number *gives them Google Voice number*) and it hasn't worked for me.

    That feature is being removed by Google in the middle of 2014.

    "Singhal also mentioned that part of the reason they are taking so long is because of 3rd party apps that are using Google Voice to provide calling and SMS services. These apps are apparently in violation of their ToS and potentially pose a threat to your security should you use them, so they have notified these developers that they must stop using Google Voice services by May 15, 2014."
