    Marshmallow doesn't look different, but it has new functions and improvements. Google Now On Tap, Doze, the ability to convert external storage (SD card) to permanent internal storage, i.e. "adoptable storage," tweaks to drop down notification panel - including the addition of System UI Tuner. There are other more technical changes too that someone here can probably explain.

    It's been good so far, except adoptable storage does not work well, but maybe future updates will make it better?

    I have had better battery life on MM.

    My guess is that T-Mobile finally approved Band 12. So Uncarrier.

    Funny enough, the font on my Chronus calendar widget changed... So there's that. :-) But yea I know about all the changes. It was just funny to me, after waiting and waiting, its here and I'm like... Well, I got Marshmallow now... Cool. Haha.

    Good news is so far it's been totally trouble-free. Nice and smooth, although it was before too.

    Can you check if WiFi calling is enabled?
    Where would you find it?

    I just did some research on wifi calling with TMO. The tech explained that it is something that is actually installed by the manufacturer at the request of the carriers. So, since the MXPE is not sold through TMO, TMO has not requested that Motorola put it in the phones they produce and sell. T-Mobile is one of the two carriers that offers wifi calling, but since it doesn't offer the MXPE for sale.... Basically, that means no wifi calling for us...unless it comes in a software update (if that's possible).

    Which doesn't make much sense -- since the Nexus 6P also isn't sold by T-Mobile but I can use WiFi calling without a hiccup since MM (6.0) has WiFi calling / VoLTE built into it.

    That may be with the Nexus device. But it doesn't seem to be built into the Moto XPE. From what I was told, it's up to the manufacturer. There's a choice in Settings, if it's available, whether to turn it on or not. There is no choice in the the MXPE settings.

    Yeah I get that but just saying that doesn't add up. They say they have to put their software on it which was true.. Before MM. Now that MM has it baked in it should be able to work. Either T-Mobile had Motorola not put it in or Motorola decided to take it out. The 6P gets the same update from Google.. Regardless of carrier. However if you have a T-Mobile SIM in the phone it will show wifi calling in the menu whereas one with a Verizon SIM will not have the option.

    T-Mobile isn't controlling the software for the 6P.. So Google is allowing it to work. So my main thing is it's either Motorola taking it out to not have to deal with it.. Or T-Mobile maybe making the request to Motorola and they're listening.

    Hard to tell what's actually going on. If it's baked into 6.0, it should show somewhere in the settings, but it doesn't. It doesn't make sense to me either.

    I got the phone with the Amazon $100 off deal. If Moto isn't going to add it, then it goes back, which is a shame because the screen is gorgeous. I'm in a dead zone at my house and need WiFi calling.

    Yeah I am assuming it is Motorola since it works fine on the 6P.

    Below are screenshots of wifi calling, me turning it on to show it recognizes it, and my "About phone" section to show my phone (6P).

    For those who need WiFi Calling on T-Mobile and are frustrated that it's not activated in Moto X Pure MM Android 6, please read the following: I recently visited a friend out of state who's ground floor level apartment in a large building gets terrible T-Mobile reception. She relies on WiFi Calling on a Samsung Galaxy S5 but gets unreliable service, dropped calls, etc. We went to a T-Mobile store and she got the free CellSpot--free with a $25 refundable deposit. I installed it for her in her apartment--easy set up. Once activated, it runs its own set-up for about 45 minutes. Then both she on her GS5 and I on my Moto X Pure MM received 4 bar, high speed LTE. From zero reception to perfect reception, once the CellSpot was installed and activated. She reports perfect results since--no more dropped calls--and crystal clear voice quality. BTW, else where in her building my Moto X picked up T-Mobile band 12. I highly recommend the CellSpot. I don't use it myself in my home because I get great T-Mobile reception. Also note, she has WiFi calling now turned off--she is only using the CellSpot.

    A lot of other places WiFi call is a necessity.. I am a service tech doing supermarket refrigeration.. When I am working at the stores and in the cookers there is no cell coverage but all the stores have WiFi.. If androids has it baked in then me using a pure Android device should get to utilize it

    I wouldn't send it back for that reason. I think that the caller ID and blocking is a bit more useful feature that it needs. And dialer search.

    On my moto g3 I had to make a call where there was no reception. I just went to McDonald's and downloaded hangouts dialer and it sounded clear and call worked fine. I think you just need Google voice for it work. T-Mobile supports Google voice pretty well. It's a damn good phone and I'm trying to decide between keeping it or the nexus 6.

    Might not be ideal for some having to use a separate app but at least there's a work around. I wish there was a way to get the caller ID, caller block and the Google maps search dialer from nexus phones info mxpe. It looks so identical to nexus dialer too. With volte now and hd calling and adoptable storage it has a slight edge over nexus 6.

    I will day I wish I ordered one from moto maker for more memory and customization. But couldn't turn down legitimate black Friday deals.

    Not outside the house, but if I go down my road a couple hundred feet, I get a good signal.
    Just ordered a cell spot from T-Mobile. I'll give that a try and hopefully it will work.

    Should not have to jump through hoops for features available to other stock Android phones. Taking out native WiFi calling support from aosp is a huge black eye to moto..

    I don't like to remove neither the SIM nor the MicroSD while the devices is on...better safe than sorry.
    You're supposed to turn the phone off when you remove the SIM/SD card holder. But before you do, don't forget to unmount the SD card or you could lose everything on it.

    I was waiting to hear the final word on WiFi calling. I have T-Mobile and use the CellSpot at home because of poor reception in my apartment. This won't help me when traveling. I occasionally visit friends where there is no TM signal and the only thing that saves the day is WiFi calling. This is disappointing as I was just about to order the MXPE.

    I feel the same.. I have a 6p coming Monday and a v10 coming Wed.. One will go back, and one will be my new daily driver as my moto pure 2015 joins my s4, s5, and note 3 in the drawer of old phones

    Very disappointing, indeed! I've checked with both T-Mobile and Motorola, and this phone ain't got it available...even with Marshmallow. In fact, the tech reps at Motorola don't have a clue. TMO informed me that the option is built into phones by the manufacturers, which is about the only logical explanation I've received from either of them. This is one of the great features of being on TMO; it's included in their plans...free. And it really helps out a lot of folks who may not have the best network signal, but have wifi available. Why Moto didn't include this option in this phone...their premier phone...is a mystery and no one at Moto seems to know the answer. I should have gone with the Nexus 6P or LG V10 (which I still may do).
