    Wifi calling is only available on T-Mobile firmware. So if you had an unlocked phone (both carrier and bootloader unlocked), you could possibly flash the T-Mobile firmware onto the phone. People already do that for phones like the Galaxy S5 (Sprint-->T-Mobile). But since most AT&T phones are bootloader locked, chances are that you are out of luck.

    I would just buy a T-Mobile branded used phone to get wifi calling.

    As for tethering, tethering is prohibited by the Terms of Service. However, Cricket does not seem to block it if you have an unlocked, international phone such as the Oneplus One or the Nexus 6.

    Ignore the part about tethering. That was accidentally copied into the this post from another window I had opened. Sorry for the confusion.

    Possibly might work but if it doesn't work you are out of luck. I have a carrier unlocked iPhone 5s originally on Boost Mobile. It is now with T-Mobile via Harbor Mobile. Wifi calling works perfectly for me. But if it doesn't work for you T-Mobile won't say its supported by them.
