AT&T is now letting customers use Wi-Fi calling when traveling outside the United States, according to a text message sent to customers. This means that you can make and receive phone calls at no additional charge when traveling abroad, as long as you're on a Wi-Fi network. Text Messages (SMS) can also be sent/received over Wi-Fi. Previously, Wi-Fi calling was limited to the United States.

With the latest software update for your phone you can use Wi-Fi Calling when traveling outside the U.S. This means you can call back to the U.S. or receive incoming calls, with no airtime charges. When you call international numbers, your rates will be the same as those in your smartphone plan or your international package.

It seems that international support is limited to iOS 9.3, but it remains unclear if that is the case as previous version of iOS supported AT&T Wi-Fi calling. AT&T has also updated its Wi-Fi calling webpage indicating support for international calling. While Wi-Fi calling is available in most countries, AT&T notes that the service will not available in China, Saudi Arabia, India, Turkey, Israel, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, Pakistan, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.

Wi-Fi calling launched with iOS 9, letting users make/receive calls and text message when there is no service available. You can learn how to enable Wi-Fi calling using our tutorial here.

You can already do that from certain apps. Other carriers should allow that too.

It would have been cool to make international calls free of charge from a wifi connection from the United States

But you can't use it at all if you have a corporate plan

I am on a "business plan" is that different? I use wifi calling all the time. Just curious if that is the same as a "corporate plan".
