    It is truly a great feature, and does come in handy when coverage isn't optimal in odd spots.
    It is also excellent on Verizon with iPhones.

    WiFi calling is an obsession for T-Mobile users because their coverage is so spotty. I cannot give an example for where I don't have voice coverage with my Verizon plan and I would need WiFi.


    Well... OK, I can think of a few locations, but I am not allowed to take my phone inside there anyway, and there is no WiFi allowed either

    Where do you leave your phone then?

    As a former CS rep for another cell phone company, sometimes that is what they are told by their systems resources. Don't be so quick to throw them under the bus until you walk a mile in their shoes.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    I wasn't blaming any of the individual reps or throwing anyone under the bus. It's obviously a recommendation from Verizon's troubleshooting documentation, as I've had no less than 5 different reps (over the course of many months) suggest that WiFi assist was the culprit for some unrelated problem I was having.

    At least some places that don't allow you to take phones in provide lock boxes. Lock the phone in, take the key. Don't know if this applies to the poster.

    I've been at a company a few times before where you could leave the phone at a front desk.
    iPhone X is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    Yep, they have lockers for cell phones at the entrance, if you don't power it off, battery will drain trying to lock on signal.
    Or you can leave it in the car.

    I have been to a few resorts in the rural west coast that have wifi, but no or very poor cellular coverage, even on Verizon.

    Wi-Fi Calling Failures

    My home tower at a new all time low:


    Actually staring at my home sector PCI 346:



    Festival is going on in my town, that’s partly what was dragging down cell 345 and the fiber enet backhaul feeding the site:

    mine is at an all new high at home. For many many years i could only get one or two bars at best in my basement condo. And speeds were extremely slow. I used a Femtocell for many years until Verizon had wifi calling. But recently I've been able to get three or four bars. and download speeds over 60Mb/s at home. Which was unheard of even as recent as last year.

    Wi-Fi support is nice for certain cases. In some big store. Or if I could use on my upcoming trip to the UK and keep my number (instead I have 3 SIM ready for activation when I'm there).

    I wouldn't want to live with Wi-Fi required coverage at home unless that was the ONLY choice. I also don't use Wi-Fi at work since it ties back to my company account, and the company doesn't need to have records of places I visit during lunch hours or on breaks. So I'm with a company that works well for me at work.
