How Important Is It To Have Wi-Fi Calling On Your Carrier Unlocked Smartphone

T-Mobile Subscribers,

How important is it for you to have Wi-Fi calling available on your carrier unlocked smartphone?

Is it a ''must have'' or a ''nice to have'' feature?

How often do you use Wi-Fi calling?

    It's a must have feature for all smartphones imho.

    I've been in situations where I've had access to WiFi without a cellular signal and wifi calling comes in very handy then.

    I also think it's a must have feature. I work in a building that doesn't get the best cell signal. Having wifi calling is extremely nice in these situations.

    Must have. The reception I get at my house is awful, a phone having weak antennas makes it worse, so wifi calling is a godsend.

    It is a dealbreaker for me. Since I live in a dead zone (even though I somehow get fine reception everywhere else) I won't buy a phone without wi-fi calling.

    I live in Iowa where T-Mobile's coverage can be lacking to put it lightly. So or me, wi-fi calling is extremely important at times.

    In Oklahoma it is not an option in many places so I can do without it.

    I think it is a must have in 2018.

    In theory, its great but I have it on my phone and it doesn't appear to be doing me any good.

    Must have for me. I actually switched carrier because my old carrier wouldn't support wifi calling on my unlocked phone. Since most of my calling is done in my home office, I'd estimate 75% of my overall calling is over wifi and 100% when I'm there because cell reception in my basement office is terrible.

    Very important.

    Absolute must have. I use wifi calling daily.

    Must-have for rural T-Mobile users, except if your only Internet access is satellite, as lag makes WiFi calling unusable in experience of friends. In that case you need to go with whatever carrier happens to work best in your area.

    I don't use it much but I feel that having it on the phone is useful when I am in an area without a good cell reception.

    It's a must have for sure.

    If I have to pay for the WiFi call (It is not free on T-Mobile) then it isn't important at all to me.

    Nice to have......I have used it once, but I do VERY LITTLE voice calls these days. If it doesn't affect price or software update schedule, throw it in for those who need it/use it more than me.

    I just moved into a new home where the T-Mobile service is virtually non-existent. My next phone will have to have wi-fi calling!

    Being honest I love using git since it provides great clarity especially when signal is weak even though I usually have signal that's a benefit

    Must have. No question. It's a little disappointing you're even asking.

    Must have! Certain buildings never get a cell signal. wifi is the only way to stay in touch.
