AT&T Wi-Fi calling now available on iPhones running iOS 9

AT&T has announced that it has enabled Wi-Fi calling for customers running iOS 9 on their IPHONEs. For those unfamiliar, Wi-Fi calling allows customers to place calls over Wi-Fi if they happen to be in an area where the standard cellular signal is patchy or unavailable. To enable the feature, you can navigate to the \ »Phone\ » section of your Settings app and flip the switch next to\ »Wi-Fi Calling.\ » You’ll then be taken through a series of setup screens where you can set your 911 emergency address and then activate the feature. To recap, AT&T Wi-Fi calling was available for a short period in certain test locations when iOS 9 was in beta, but the feature didn’t launch alongside iOS 9 because AT&T hadn’t yet received a waiver to enable it from the FCC. Earlier this week, however, AT&T received the necessary waiver, and it now looks like everything is a go. Keep in mind that you must have AT&T HD Voice features enabled to use Wi-Fi calling, and it can only be used in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands. Source: AT&T
