No Wi-Fi Calling in T-Mobile's Nexus 4
T-Mobile has confirmed that its Wi-Fi calling feature will not be supported on the LG Nexus 4, which goes on sale later this month. T-Mobile explained that the feature will be absent because the Nexus 4 is a pure Google device, and does not include carrier or manufacturer software. The Wi-Fi calling feature was developed by T-Mobile to allow customers who may not have a strong T-Mobile signal in their homes make phone calls through their home broadband network. The Nexus 4 is a variant of the LG Optimus G and will cost $199.99 when purchased with a contract through T-Mobile. It can also be purchased unlocked directly from Google for $299 (8GB) and $349 (16GB).
