I’m gonna show you how to set up Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone 6 or 6s. This tutorial is for AT&T (my service provider) and you must have an iPhone 6, 6s or iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus running on at least iOS 9. I recently had another iPhone issue; I wasn’t getting a very good connection when I tried to a make phone call, so my solution was to double check my settings and force Wi-Fi calling!
