Everyone love the fact how we can make prioritized calls over a stronger WiFi signal. Some people get confused on how this feature works and how it benefits them. This allows you to make simple (normal) calls via a WiFi signal. So no need in allows using your cellular towers 24/7. So if you're around a WiFi connection all the time like work, home, and school or public place and you don't have the best signal this would benefit you.
How much does this cost?
T-Mobile lets you make and receive Wi-Fi calls for free between 120 countries. Sprint customers won't be charged for calls made to, from, or between the US, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, but they will be charged "international calling plan rates" for other countries. Republic Wireless only supports Wi-Fi calling for the US and Canada. Other than that, the carrier has no international support, which includes no support for Puerto Rico, Guam and the US Virgin Islands.
Traveling with this feature....
If you're going overseas and want to keep in touch, its best to stick with Skype and WhatsApp when you're connected to a building or hotel's Wi-Fi. You can use data, but remember that it will cost you a lot if you're roaming on cellular networks. If you don't have a roaming plan, make sure you only use Wi-Fi and turn off data roaming in your Settings before heading out.
Always remember when you retain a good signal in an area and you don't want to use the WiFi calling feature make sure it's turned off. If not you will drop calls due to the phone not allowing your phone to connect to normal cell towers due to the feature being on.
