Verizon Announces It Will Launch Wi-Fi Calling for iOS Early Next Year

Posted December 5, 2015 at 4:20pm by iClarified
Verizon has announced that it will launch Wi-Fi Calling for iOS devices early next year. However, the company is launching Wi-Fi Calling for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge on December 8th.

Beginning December 8, Verizon customers with Advanced Calling on two different Samsung smartphones can make and receive calls and initiate video calls over a Wi-Fi Internet connection. Verizon customers already enjoy the largest and most reliable wireless network in the United States, and Advanced Calling with Wi-Fi Calling provides an alternative for those who wish to use Wi-Fi in the home, office or while traveling.

Wi-Fi Calling will initially be available on the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and Samsung Galaxy S 6 Edge and will be rolled out as a software update in phases. Additional Android and iOS devices will receive Wi-Fi Calling capabilities via future software updates expected early next year.

The FCC granted Verizon the waiver needed to launch Wi-Fi Calling last month. The feature is already available on other carriers including AT&T and T-Mobile.

iOS being the second biggest mobile platform in terms of volume and first in terms of developers remuneration. iOS apps development are a part of improving business, setting signature presence and building a great brand.

I was happy with T-Mobile until I took a road trip with my family. Drove down to Florida form the upper MidWest and I was so often without service on major freeways, it was ridiculous. Less than an hour outside of St. Louis and nothing. The free streaming would have been pretty great, but you can;t use it if there isn't a good enough signal. I wasn't even able to make a call in some areas. Can't have that and want to be considered a major player.

T-Mobile is quickly surpassing Verizon and AT&T. T-Mobile actually cares about its customers!

I bet people thought John was kidding when he first took over and claimed the first few things they said.

Unless you live in The west coast and then it seems like you paid cheap for cheap service. Sadly, customer service is as greedy as sprint's for if you're late, you lose your number.

T-Mobile nearly covers the USA and despite some poor areas, listening to customers goes to show why they just got #1 and how consumer reports made them first unlike Verizon. You do realize they introduced free lte for 3 months for simply paid customers and deals just for switching. Jiohn said all this was just the beginning.

TMobile number 1? Really since when, I just checked and they are still number 4?They are number 1 in pricing but not in service or coverage. I have never met any business traveler with TMobile for they end up useless in my city. Marketing is all good but I need coverage when I'm driving outside my state or outside the city. You get what you pay for with T-Mobile.

We rate them #1 no matter who else may have more.

This just in. Tmobile is officially number one by consumer reports, unseating Verizon. This sums it all up

This just in, most T-Mobile customer can't afford a real phone bill and doesn't go outside their city to know coverage really sucks! T-Mobile ABSOLUTELY SUCKS!!!
