T-Mobile Nexus 4 Will Support WiFi Calling After All


After previously seeing the upcoming Nexus 4 on T-Mobile will likely not have WiFi calling, it appears that it will after all. T-Mobile Support recently outlined the full data features of the devices and lo and behold– full WiFi calling is indeed supported. All that’s needed is for T-Mo customers to get a specialized GBA SIM card, register a 9-1-1 address and turn on the phone’s WiFi and connect to a WiFi network. All in all— while the pricing of the device is somewhat absurd on-contract, at least T-Mo customers will be able to save many of those precious monthly talk minutes which is a good thing, right?

    Will Wi-Fi calling work if you buy the Nexus from Google and go with a prepaid option?

      I can’t say for certain, but I would assume the Play Store Nexus would not come loaded with a T-Mobile branded app.

        But all it says is to get a GBA SIM card and u are good to go. I doubt even the Tmo N4 will come with any sort of app pre-installed.

    T-Mobile has historically charged normal plan minutes when calling over their wifi app. I don’t think that’s likely to change unless they’ve had a change of heart.
