    I'm in the beta so it works for me, but very quirky... Not ready for prime time yet

    I can't get why AT&T isn't launching VoWiFi with RCS, that would seem to do the same functions as RTT and have wider support since T-Mobile is supporting it already and Verizon is also committing to future RCS deployment.
    Have you read the forum rules lately?

    Which do you think is more important to AT&T? Doing the right thing by customers, or protecting their cash cow core business? Wi-Fi trend and other VoIP developments spell the end of the latter eventually. AT&T and Verizon are both in a position to be able to drag their feet not be leaders...

    The T-Mobile response seems odd. RCS is great, but they haven't really explained how it works with TTY, it sounds more like a marketing pitch.

    I don't really get the system, but it makes me think there's more to AT&T's decision.

    Their pitch is that TTY is replaced by RCS. Still, the Feds could call BS and T-Mobile would have to implement RTT.

    I'm not sure how this new Wifi calling works, but they always could have technically implemented it how the Microcells sorta work...where it just creates an IPSEC VPN connection back to AT&T. Just using the regular internet with no special requirements assuming no outgoing port blocking.

    Yeah I picked up on that. Isn't that pretty much like saying SMS replaced TTY?

    I think that's along the lines of how it works, but it could be simpler than that. I'm not exactly sure how IMS works, but it might not require a VPN.

    I don't think Cricket will get it. Att must reserve features for premium paying customers, not cut rate services.

    Oh, we pay, we just don't pay the extra fees and outrageous charges the "premium" people do

    And that's the point when are the motherships will try to defer the loss of their outrageous margins as long as possible by making sure that only they offer the latest and greatest features even if they aren't all that critical at least they have some thingsto point to as strategic differences. Like the speed throttling on cricket...

    AT&T is just mad about Net Neutrality, they are about as subtle as a Category 5 Hurricane
