    I think I read somewhere that that T-Mobile doesn't allow wifi calling through the Nexus 5. Is this correct?
    Anyone out there using wifi calling on their TMo N5?
    We live in a dead zone so the only way we can make calls at home is via Wifi, so the Nexus 5 will not be my next upgrade if that's the case.

    Merry Christmas Everyone !!

    I was just at T-Mo gathering some info, and that's what they told me--Nexus devices cannot use wi-fi calling.

    That's good to know. What I should have clarified is that Nexus devices on T-Mo can't use T-Mo's own wi-fi calling feature.

    Hmm ok, so no to Tmo's dedicated Wi-Fi calling, but yes to any other app that can connect to the internet like Skype, Vonage etc....
    what's up with that I wonder....
    I currently have the Samsung G III and it works great, but was thinking about upgrading to the Nexus 5, but now ... not so much...
    Maybe I'll wait for the Samsung G V

    Vonage is VoIP Calling, NOT T-Mobile WiFi Calling

    The T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling feature is built in at the OS level. It is not an app that can be added later. This allows for users to use their T-Mobile number in order to make and receive calls versus some of the other solutions which require a separate code or phone number.
