Default Is this possible on nexus 5 on T-Mobile?

I know the nexus 5 on T-Mobile does not have the WiFi calling feature. I don't know if that is due to lack of hardware or software. With that, I was wondering if it was possible being rooted by means of a ROM or kernel or some sort of mod?

If so, could you kindly point me in the direction of it?

Thank you,
Whiteice

There's no mod for this at the moment. Not sure what the restriction is but I've seen it asked many times here. You may learn the restriction if you search

there's alot of stuff that tmobile has to add to the phone for it to be able to work. some framework, APIs, and special RIL.

its not possible since none of this information is known.
Go back to stock on your nexus 5 using this guide: here

Tired of paying too much money for your phone plan? go prepaid!

Save money on refills for your prepaid plans: Use Callingmart

I just purchased my N5 from T-mo last month here in the states. One of the features that sold me on it was the ability for it to do calls over wifi. I have tested it as I was in Canada and when calling my v-mail it did not recognise my caller-id so it prompted me for a password. So long story short, it should be able to call over WiFi natively.
This is just my $0.02

the nexus 5 doesnt have the software nor, very importantly, tmobiles framework for wifi calling to work. the great thing about owning nexus devices is that carriers do not have access to them to install all their carrier crap on them, wifi calling being one of those. its not as simple as just installing an app to have it work. it needs tmobiles framework built into it as well.
