    You lose more than just WiFi calling by not having this feature. It also means you don't get the free TMobile sponsored internet access and texting on Gogo Wifi planes.

    The exclusivity certainly must have a time limit. Can't we get TMobile and MS to cooperate and offer whatever update is needed to enable WiFi calling?

    I sort of doubt it.
    I'm on AT&T, and they have the same deal going, but they're worse yet, they won't allow any non-branded devices (except iOS, which has a terrific lever) to make VoLTE or WiFi calls.

    It's pretty tough, with things largely de-regulated, there's not much to leverage the carriers with. They're mostly motivated by other carriers taking the first step, and fear of being "left-behind", IMHO.

    If I may share my story here...
    I bought both 950xl and 950 when they had that deal to buy both of them together. To make the long story short, I had to return them because of this very reason: WiFi calling was simply not installed. The "tragedy" was that I had to give up my 925 to get the $150 off deal when one trades-in their phone. I had to buy another 925 used from eBay, (they could not return my original phone as it was long gone), as I found that was the only phone that was"sexy" enough for me to hold, had windows mobile (i have the latest 14915 build installed) and could do WiFi calling, which I use all the time when I travel abroad. Still, I miss the XL, as I found myself being more productive with it.

    True story.
