If you’re a T-Mobile user with a newer iPhone model then, whether you know it or not, there’s a feature that T-Mobile versions of those models have that others don’t — the ability to perform calls over Wi-Fi connection. Why do I need Wi-Fi calls when I can just make regular calls you might ask? The answer is easy.
Some people don’t have enough service in their homes or in their places of work, and thus become impossible to reach by rest of the world. While this is actually a very rare feat nowadays, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t still happen (or any fun for you or the people trying to contact you). Luckily, if you are a proud T-Mobile customer and the owner of a iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and/or iPhone 6 Plus, then your phone is eligible to be used for telephone calls over wireless connection.
Before giving you the step by step, you need to be a T-Mobile user and an owner of one of the aforementioned models. In addition, make sure you have established a wireless connection on your phone with a WiFi network and are functioning on the iOS 8 software update or higher.
Once you’ve got all those checked off, you’re ready to go. Here’s how to enable WiFi calls on the iPhone.
1. Okay, for starters, let’s just locate and tap onto your native “Settings” app.
2. Once you’re in your Settings, you’ll need to scroll down a bit to find the icon we’re looking for.
3. Swipe down. See the “Phone” icon? Tap that. It’s the one we’ll need.
4. Hit WiFi Calls once in the Phone section of your settings of your T-Mobile iPhone 5s or later, on iOS 8 or later.

5. Once inside the Wi-Fi Calls subcategory of the Phone section in your settings, hit the tab once to make it green to enable your ability to make calls over an established Wi-Fi connection. If you want to disable it, just tap the bad boy again and grey it out.

Enjoy your Wi-Fi calls. Typically – depending on the strength of you Wi-Fi connection – calls made over wireless are actually much clearer than your traditional standard telephone calls.
