WiFi Calling Support For iOS Coming Soon?

Recommended Posts

I've tested that. It works seamlessly. MMS does not work though...

Yup, just did airplane mode + wifi (calling) and SMS works great. Texting in group chats, or sending pictures anywhere does not work.

Is MMS over wifi available on any other carrier on the iPhone?

Any new word regarding whether the handoff is working?

It works sometimes for me but others have had worse luck with it...they're definitely trying...

My carrier just updated to Sprint 25.1 from 25.0 today. I will see if Wifi to Macro handoffs are still nonfunctional.

Have you tried the method I used above, walking out of wifi coverage during a known wifi call?

Ok so my circumstances were a bit different but effectively the same. I don't talk on the phone much so I simulated this situation with two phones in the same room. Basically the wifi network I am on kicks me off for like 5 seconds every few minutes. When I am on a known wifi call and i get kicked off, the call usually smoothly hands off to CDMA although every so often it fails. That's pretty much it.

Just called someone and sure enough the call dropped when I got out of wifi range

I'm curious about the MMS and group text (non-iMesssage) issue with Wi-Fi calling. Is this just an issue while you're on wifi, or is it an issue even when off wifi as long as Wi-Fi calling is enabled?

 

And I assume iMesssage still completely works since that's over data.

 

Thanks!

I believe all issues have been resolved.

      I don’t know if anyone has already posted information about wifi calling, so I thought it would be good to add this.  In the last 2 weeks, I posted on the sprint.com forum and the Sprint reps were unable to answer the simple question of what port does wifi calling use. Previous to posting I called customer service and Airrave support and no one could answer either. I didn’t expect a detailed answer, but they could have called someone who knew the answer.  Anyway, two very knowledgeable users on the forum narrowed things down, and wifi calling uses UDP port 4500. I had already narrowed down the ports to a handful, since I found information on the web about TMobile’s similar wifi calling. Also, I found a netstat option built into my Asus RT-AC66U router that was helpful for looking at ip/ports for our phones. The Sprint server the wifi calling traffic heads to is 68-31-26-1.pools.spcsdns.net  The reason I started asking about the port and connectivity is because we experienced many calls that would either drop or when you called someone it would go silent during the call. This goes along with UDP traffic being connectionless and sensitive to any disruption.  I prioritized traffic for our GS4T and GS5 phones for port 4500 and found there was a firmware updated from Asus for the router that helped.  Also, I skimmed over (on some other android forums) the updates for the GS5 to android 4.4.4 and I noticed something with wifi calling bug fixes.  I am happy to say that the wifi calling is working a lot better now.

      So, we all know about the lovely iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User thread, and there are many different device focused threads across S4GRU, but there are none for us older iPhone users. So, why should they get to have all the fun? This thread is dedicated to anything and everything about our beautiful (Spark-less) iPhone 5's and 5S's.
       
      Discuss anything like jailbreaks, hardware problems, how much you love your device, how great it is to have at least one LTE band compared to the folks who still have 4's and 4S's, ask questions and maybe you can get some answers, etc. etc.
       
      Discuss!

      I know someone on here might be able to help, but I have a Sprint iPad mini (1st gen) and I have been swapping between my Sprint SIM card that came with the device and a TMobile SIM. This past time when I reinstalled the Sprint SIM I was able to purchase data, but then the reprovisioning kept failing. I cannot use the data. I tried resetting the iPad completely, and that did not work. I restored the iPad as new and that also did not work. I also noticed that the iPad kept going from Sprint 3G to 1x over and over, even in an area with full LTE. I called Sprint support and they said that they could not handle anything prepaid (which was shocking), but when I pushed a bit on them, they helped troubleshoot. Still, nothing has worked. I will call Apple this evening if nothing else, but I am traveling for Memorial Day, so it would have been nice to have extra data on the iPad. Anyways, does anyone have any thoughts? I am thinking it may be a hardware issue, but it does not appear to be a SIM card issue. Still in the car on a long trip from NYC to Ohio for a wedding reception and visiting the in-laws.

      With the FCC and Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to this new unlocking policy. How does this effect sprint phones such as the IPhone. I have heard that Sprint can unlock your phone but you can not take it to other carriers such as Verizon and the IPhone can only be used overseas.  (Correct me if I am wrong). I am glad that this has finally happened. But when it comes to Sprint how would this work?

    • I posted the below on the essential subreddit.  Wonder if others on sprint have the same issue?   "It is well noted that the essential has reception / radio problems but today, when I roamed on to US Cellular, it completely abandoned 1x and connected to LTE only. Which is fine when connected to Sprint because the phone can pass text messages over LTE. However, while roaming, the phone would not send or receive text messages and could not make or receive calls because it was latched to USCC LTE and needs a 1x connection to do this. My 5X (and I assume every other phone), when it connected to USCC LTE, would somehow get notification of a text or call and idle back over to 1x to take care of things and then dump the 1x connection until needed again (signal check shows all of this happening). Same deal when I would try to send a text as well. Seems the essential is dead in the water under these conditions and just can not bring it self to go to 1x when needed while roaming, at least on USCC. I do not have other roaming carriers up here to test with. I am sure we do not need to go into the problems with being completely unable to make a phone call in the very large areas that Sprint uses USCC to roam on. I can accept if it was just the area I was in. So in that case, any other Sprint users roamed on USCC LTE without any voice or text problems recently? I am on Oreo Beta for what its worth."
    • Twitter might give you better results. 
    • Essential's reception to the reception issues was not very receptive because their reception at the time was poor and they did not receive full receipt of the reception issues. AJ
