WiFi Calling is the new feature in iOS 8 which is available initially to T-Mobile customers in the United States and EE customers in the United Kingdom and coming for other carriers in coming months. By using this new feature you can able to make and receive calls on your iPhone using Wi-Fi instead of depending on your carrier’s cell tower coverage.
How this WiFi Calling Works
Wi-Fi calling depends on a technology alternately called Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) or Generic Access Network (GAN), depending on which technical paper you’re reading. The technology enables your iPhone to make and receive phone calls using a regular Wi-Fi network.
Instead of routing your voice packets through your carrier’s closest cell tower, those packets get tunneled through the Internet to a controller used by your cell company, which then bounces them across the network to whomever you’re speaking.
