    Wifi calling questions

    Can you text as well as call over wifi?

    Will wifi calling work on her Galaxy S5?

    How well do calls transfer from wifi to cell towers?

    We live on the same property with my mother in law and AT&T has the best service it works great everywhere until you go into my mother in law's house. We had a signal booster in her house but it's over heating and not working at all any more. She's in a hole with a metal roof. We do have acres of wifi with 2 different providers so wifi calling should solve all of her problems, well the phone ones and reduce the stress level for my husband.

    Wifi calling is only available on select phones at this time. It is expected to extend to other phones in the future but there's no telling when this will happen.

    Currently WIFI calling is only available on the LG X Charge. Cricket website states that both text and phone calls will work over WIFI.

    AT&T does not support BYOD for VoLTE and WIFI calling. Cricket one 1 phone. That is as good as no support. Seems to me it would be to the carrier's benefit to off load the calls. But what do I know.

    Sure it does. There are phones not sold by AT&T that support VOLTE on both them and cricket. Wifi calling is a bit more complex and having a slower rollout.
