T-Mobile ending support for Wi-Fi Calling v1.0 on these phones


T-Mobile has sent out a text message to its customers who are still using older devices. 

According to a Reddit thread, T-Mobile will be ending support to the version 1.0 of Wi-Fi Calling standard, which first came out in 2015. What this announcement means is that if you are a device user with Wi-Fi Calling version 1.0, you won’t get to use it anymore beginning May 30th. 

There are 13 devices that will be affected by T-Mobile’s new announcement. These devices include the following:

  • Alcatel One Touch Pop Astro

  • Alcatel Fierce 2

  • Google Nexus 6

  • LG Optimus L70

  • LG Optimus L90

  • Microsoft Lumia 640

  • Samsung Galaxy Avant

  • Samsung Galaxy Exhibit

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4

  • Samsung Galaxy S5

  • Samsung Galaxy S4

  • Samsung Galaxy S III LTE

  • ZTE Obsidian

In the message it sent out, T-Mobile advised affected users to visit this support page to learn more about the announcement. 

If you are still using one of these phones with a T-Mobile, T-Mobile Prepaid, or Metro by T-Mobile SIM card, you can still use Wi-Fi to access the internet once the change has been implemented. But when it comes to making a call, it will be done over cellular network.
