How To Enable WiFi Calling On iPhone In iOS 10

Reading this post you'll learn how to enable WiFi Calling on iOS 10 iPhone. As you know such US carries as AT&T, T-Mobile and more support Wi-Fi Calling on their network, allowing those with weak cellular signals to use WiFi to make and receive calls. Wi-Fi calling is carrier-driven, and depends on a technology called SIP / IMS (IP Multimedia Subset). This technology forces your iOS 10 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. The net result is that you're talking, but you're not actually using a cell tower to do it. For people who live in areas with poor or inconsistent cellular reception, Wi-Fi calling is an absolute savior.
