    ATT WiFi calling and texting

    Has anyone heard anything about updates to ATT allowing wifi calling and/or texting? I would love to be able to do this.

    I believe the iPhones are being tested first it's a staged rollout in certain areas. Note that I've only heard about the calling not sure about texting, and MMS does usually require a carrier data signal unless you are using over-the-top app like textnow, ringto hangouts etc

    Could you try testing MMS? On Wi-Fi, and with your data radio turned off , try attaching a picture to an SMS message...

    I have also read that it only works on iphone 6 or above with iOS 9- beta, and when the new iphones come out with iOS 9 they will offer wifi calling for all then. On iphones with iOS 9 that is. Haven't heard anything about other phones or operating systems plans for wifi calling.
    Never be afraid to try, but always know where your back up is when you screw up!

    It doesn't cost anything to be nice and say thank-you.

    The trial terms and conditions say MSV plans only.

    That is iMessage, which always worked on Wi-Fi. Try sending a message to someone not using an iPhone.

    😝 , of course, facepalm! IMessage to iMessage is actually just another OTT app like the others I mentioned- does it even use the carrier facilities for plain sms that way?
