Since the phones that I used for testing (Moto E6 and LG Phoenix 2) both have the option to turn on WiFi Calling, I suspect that my SIM/account is not yet provisioned for WiFi Calling.

    Would those of you who had successfully enabled WiFi Calling on TF/AT&T run your phone number and the last four digits of your IMEI or SIM through that site and see if the result is correct? Thanks in advance for your help.

    With the phone number and last 4 digits of my ICCID from my Note 4 which has working WiFi calling, the check site says "We're sorry. Your phone is not Wi-Fi Calling capable". Typical TracFone.

    Thanks for your data point. It appears that WiFi Calling checker is worthless.

    I have seen something a bit different. I have a TF/T-MOBILE sim which used to be in a Moto E4. WiFi calling was available and I tested it. Since then I moved the sim to a Moto XPE. VoLTE is available but WiFi calling is not. The #menu# does not show a toggle to enable WiFi calling. But, if I run it thru the checker, it throws no error and takes me to the page to update e911 info. So, don't know what the checker is looking at to determine if the phone is capable.

    In my case, the SIM is a BYOP TF/AT&T which means it can be used with any compatible phone, and since the checker only asks for the phone number and SIM number, it has no clues which phone is involved. So, if it has any validity at all, the result is based on the SIM or account for that phone number.

    How are your contacts supposed to suddenly know to call a different number? Especially business contacts.

    I wonder if texting APN to 611611 will trigger a provisioning of the SIM with these features, in addition to the APN?

    I can confirm WiFi calling works with my Tracfone AT&T sim card with an iPhone 7.
    It seems like VoLTE is also activated

    Good news. Anyone getting Visual Voice Mail with this new AT&T VoLTE / WiFi ? VVM with transcription?

    In the recent past, it was dial up audible voice mail - May still be ?

    How did you get it working? Did you just activate your new SIM card or had the service for a working and just started working?

    No new SIM card or activation, just turned WiFi Calling on in the iPhone settings (and entering an emergency address). However the iPhone is on the latest iOS version 13.3.1 and carrier update TFW 40.1.

    This is what I did on my XR I updated the iOS and carrier update but it didn’t do anything new. That’s odd!

    Tracfone / AT&T might roll these features out slowly. Hopefully not as slowly as Google Gmail with its dark mode
