T-Mobile customers with Wi-Fi calling enabled phones will soon have something to celebrate. Leaked internal documents indicate that on May 11th, T-Mobile customers with Wi-Fi calling capable devices will be able to place calls over any Wi-Fi network without deducting in-plan minutes. Currently, T-Mobile subtracts minutes from your plan even though the calls are being places over private Wi-Fi networks.
Anyone who currently owns a Wi-Fi calling capable device will be notified of these changes via SMS within the next few days. If you own a phone with Wi-Fi calling capabilities but have never used the service before you will need to active the feature online or by calling customer service.
It’s nice to see T-Mobile continue to add great value to their customers while under the shadow of the AT&T buyout. Let’s just hope that AT&T keeps Wi-Fi calling operational if the deal goes through next year.
