AT&T to Wait Until 2015 to Launch WiFi Calling
Even though I get great service where I live already with cellular, I choose to use WiFi calling instead for the battery saving advantages, and to insure that I always have a rock solid connection.
So instead of connecting to a tower blocks away, with large buildings in the way, my tower essentially is just a few feet away from me at all times, with no obstructions in the way.
Why AT&T and Verizon are choosing to drag their feet with this is beyond me.

And if I lived in a place that AT&T had bad service I would just get home internet and a microcell for get coverage.
And battery savings? What battery savings. Is it the kind of battery savings that you think you get so you actually convince y...
