Wifi calling is very carrier specific. So, I doubt it.  The few carriers that do it, do it differently. But there is always Google hangouts, Skype or your own VoIP app to get similar functionality.

We returned our Moto G4 because Lenovo/Motorola decided not to implement this feature. Not sure why, since my Motorola Nexus 6 has it, and it is a much older phone. 

 

Too bad, since it was a good phone other than that.

If you use google hangouts dialer, then carrier support isn't required and wifi calling works on any carrier or phone.

Sadly, it looks like the 4G Plus does not as well so I am going to return this phone as well.  Its a shame since most all new phones support WiFi calling.  Please do not suggest using a third party app like google hangouts.  What I want, and many others who have cell phones, is the ability to receive phone calls on our mobile phones using WiFi when there is no celluar signal so we do not miss a phone call.   All the US carriers have implemented WiFi calling as of this year.( Yes even att and Verizon).  The issue has nothing to do with carrier signal strength but rather that their signal cannot at this point penetrate large steel constructed office buildings.  In this case either you have to have a phone with WiFi calling capability or a costly celluar repeater must be installed.

Skype, hangouts, etc would work fine for calling out. But I want to be able to receive calls on my regular phone number when I'm out of cell coverage. Like when I'm deep inside a hospital or other building with spotty coverage. These locations typically have guest wifi.

I m sorry but your not right, it used to be carrier specific when only tmobile had WiFi calling and you had to have a tmobile phone in order it should work but now since other carriers have WiFi calling the phone manufacturers are implanting this feuture so it works with any carrier supporting wifi,  the blackberry priv comes already with the WiFi calling feature which works with any carrier that supports wifi calling, my friend used it before with at&t and now with t-mobile, the iphone  also works with any carrier which supports WiFi calling for exemp verizon sprint att tmobile

That is true for some phones but other phones are very carrier specific. Most nexus phons are hit or miss some work on t-mo, some on verizon but none work on att. 

 

The carriers are still the gatekeepers and provision the service to the phone. Maybe they all do use the GAN system/standard (unknown to me), but just because a phone works with one carrier doesnt gurantee wifi calling will work with another.

Switching from iPhone to Moto G4+.

Same carrier T-Mobile, I had Wifi calling, now I don't.

The setting does not exist where it is supposed to be.

If you live in the city or by a highway, it's OK.

If you live in the suburbs, this is a requirement.
