Re: Wi-Fi Calling from your iPhone

Here are a couple of experiences with WiFi calling, the second answering a question I had.

1. A couple of days ago, I was waiting for the Verizon leave-a-message speech to end, and lost the call. My iPhone asked if I wanted to turn on WiFi calling. I did, and the call went through. (I may have been standing in one of the few weak spots in our house.

2. I just dialed a call and got a Verizon message that the number I was calling did not accept WiFi calling. In this case, I had two Verizon dots and often make and receive calls from this part of the house.
So that's one downside of WiFi calling. You can't leave it on and assume the iPhone will default to cell calling if you have a good signal. Presumably if you're not connected to a WiFi hot spot, calls will be cellular only. The second downside is that not all numbers will accept WiFi calling.
