    Tmobile has always bragged about wifi calling enabled phones, and this phone is a Tmobile phone so now it seems like they are forcing us to use wifi calling. the problem with me is, I like to use tmbile network for calling because it is much more reliable in my area than my own wifi. I use my wifi for browsing the web. I'm trying to get rid of it but the wifi calling app is not there, and ther's no option to turn it off under settings. I have to completely turn off wifi to get rid of wifi calling.

    Wifi calling can be disabled under settings by going to the options for the SIM scrolling down to WiFi calling and turning it off.

    This helped. WiFi calling is annoying and should not be forced on us.

    Yeah I notice it switch to wifi calling on its own and I never turnt it on myself, fortunately I can never tell the difference between the two unless I look at the signal icon, but all call problems always stem from wifi calling and a bad wifi network, but I rarely have issues with wifi calling

    We need it here with the poor cell signal :(
    At least with WM10 calls over wi-fi don't freeze the phone like it did quite often with my 925.

    its funny you brought this thread back up. after my whole alcatel debacle (which works now by the way, it just needed to get charged andn ow the whole screen is turned on), I started using lumia 635 and with windows 8.1, I forgot how to access the wifi-calling to turn it off. I had to download the app to turn it off.

    But now that my alcatel fierce xl is back, I can shove lumia 635 back in the drawer as my back up phone. great phone, but tiny screen. :D

    I have a 635 here in my dead device drawer ugh.
    Looks like a postage stamp compared to a few other big sized screens I have here.

    Good to know your Alcatel woke up after the scare with it.

    oh yea. I really don't know what had happened. I just came from a Tmobile store this morning to try and get it traded or resolved, but they had to sell me a new one because I didn't have insurance on it. I almost bought a new one. Then I went on ebay and looked for Lumia 830, there are some for $90 refurbished and I almost jumped on it.

    I got the alcatel and tried to charge it again today and BAM!! I'm gonna watch the phone for awhile though, it might play tricks on me again.

    If it does, I may get a Lumia 640. same size, and still manageable for $50 bucks.

    with the latest windows 10 build are people still having issues with wifi calling being turned on..
    Do you know for sure rather this is software or hardware?
    i have had mine for 2 weeks now and i keep getting dropped calls. what i have figured out is it keeps turning wifi calling on by itself even when i am not at home. every time it finds a open wifi network..
    so t-mobile give me a replacement phone today hoping its hardware ..
    Any Thoughts???

    Thanks for the tip. This wifi calling feature is annoying as heck if you start a phone on Wifi and move outside router range. The call simply goes dead or me un this scenario.
