Following T-Mobile and Sprint, AT&T has just enabled a much-anticipated feature called Wi-Fi Calling for people who have an iPhone 6, 6 plus, 6s, or 6s plus running iOS 9.x on AT&T.
From AT&T’s web site…
With Wi-Fi Calling, you can talk and text over Wi-Fi when cellular coverage is limited or unavailable. For example, some indoor locations may be difficult for even a strong cellular signal to reach. Now, with a Wi-Fi connection, you can talk and text in those hard-to-reach places.
- Wi-Fi Calling is easy to set up and use.
- Once you set up Wi-Fi Calling, your phone automatically detects when to use it. Wi-Fi Calling will only be used if cellular coverage is weak or unavailable.
- It works with your AT&T mobile number and compatible device—no new number or app required.
Once you set up Wi-Fi Calling on your phone, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits. Just follow the steps in your phone’s settings to get started.
- Make and receive unlimited domestic calls within the U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands at no additional charge.
- International long distance rates apply for calls made to international numbers.
- Text messages sent or received using Wi-Fi Calling are counted and charged under your existing rate plan.
