AT&T Enables Wi-Fi Calling for iPhone 6 and up w/ iOS 9.x

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.

Here is a link to AT&T’s FAQ page on Wi-Fi Calling that should answer any questions that you might have.

Middlebury Google Apps Issues (10/9/2015)

At 3:07pm (ET) Google made us aware they they are investigating issues with Google Drive and related services like Docs, Sheets, and Slides. These issues are affecting all Google Apps customers, not just Middlebury. While it is not yet clear on when these issues will be resolved, in our experience, resolution by Google tends to be fairly quick.

Google’s official Apps status updates can always be found here: http://www.google.com/appsstatus#hl=en&v=status

This post will be updated when the issues have been resolved. Thanks for your patience!

Incoming Email Services Disruption (Resolved)

Please note that there was an unexpected disruption to Middlebury’s incoming email services this morning. The issue has since been resolved. Please see below for more details.

Between 8:30 AM and 10:00 AM (ET), Middlebury’s email system was unable to receive incoming email sent from external addresses. Email messages sent to @middlebury.edu and @miis.edu email addresses from external addresses were rejected by Middlebury’s email servers. External senders would have received a “Non-Deliverable Notice” notifying them of the problem. Internal email messages, i.e. messages sent from @middlebury.edu or @miis.edu addresses, were not impacted.

The problem was corrected at approximately 10:00 AM (ET). External senders should be advised to resend messages that were rejected before the problem was resolved.
