Default [Q] WiFi calling

Howdy folks,
Is there a way to make WiFi calls with the AT&T note 3?

There is another way as well. TMo allows for calls via WiFi, and I was just wondering whether or not it was just specific to TMo, or if it was something we could do through AT&T...

I know what you are talking about and no At&t does not provide this service like tmobile does. I forgot where I read it but the article stated that by offering WiFi calling, Tmobile is basically conceeding that their network is not the best and it has flaws in coverage. AT&T does not want to admit that flaw in their coverage. On the other hand I wish At&t had this option as seamless as Tmobile does for buildings that have spotty At&t coverage.

Edit: At&t is starting to offer this feature for some business phones, might only be iPhone. I believe it cost extra too, but not currently on the note 3.

i think the only other way is to use apps like Viber or Line. But the other person has to have the app too which might not be a big deal to some but I use it all the time and love both apps.

Why not use Google voice? There is an app that will use wifi or cellular data to connect via your gv number.
