Today AT&T started WIFI Calling. This is an interesting use of your Wi-Fi and also something to watch for in the office.

If your phone has limited or no service on the cell side, the call will be routed immediately to the Wi-Fi network you are on. I just tried this and it worked well, a little clipping on the line but smoother than the poor cell phone coverage feeling one often gets. I tested this on both an Aruba AP225 and a Ruckus unleashed, both received the call faster than if it were just a cell phone call. I am not sure why but was happy to see that on the 51st floor location in New York City I know have options.

I think it will improve as it is deployed more, but we shall see.

 

 

Here is the AT&T info on the roll out and a quick guide on how to enable on the iPhone. Let me know if you have had any luck turning it on.

Here's how to enable it on an iPhone 

  1. Go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling and make sure that Wi-Fi Calling is on.
  2. Restart your iPhone.
  3. Connect to a different Wi-Fi network. Not all Wi-Fi networks work with Wi-Fi Calling.
  4. Turn Wi-Fi calling off and then on again.
  5. Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset Network Settings.
