Can the $30 monthly plan include the unlimited wifi calling that won't deduct your allotted 100 minutes? I currently have the value 500 min plan and was able to add it online. Again this isn't the already included wifi calling feature that takes away from your minutes. Below is what I added to my current plan.

As long as you have a wifi calling feature phone, it's free

You can use WiFi calling however it DOES just your minutes. Best bet would be downloading a voip application such as Skype, talkatone,or groove ip. My experience is that some roms for what ever reason doesn't work with voip very well. This is why I signed up for the value plan on T mobile

It's free in so far as it doesn't cost you money however it does cost you minutes. After you use up your minutes it's .
$0.10/minute

Thanks for the reply guys. There's 2 different wifi calling it looks like. One will deduct from your minutes but the other is the unlimited wifi minutes that includes free wifi calling to U.S. if you're out of the country which doesn't deduct from your minutes. Its the latter I'm inquiring about.

Sorry meant to say with out a 3rd party voip app like GrooVe IP or talkatone. If you use the native WiFi calling you will use up your minutes

I see so the $30 plan you're not able to add the unlimited wifi calling minutes that I added to my $64.99 value plan? Just making sure Im reading you right.

That is correct. WiFi calling users your minutes on the $30 plan otherwise I'd have it myself.

Yup WiFi calling without using your minutes is only available on postpaid accounts.

Wifi calling just uses your wifi to call. You will waste your mins with wifi . It uses wifi to get good signal when you have no.service in some areas
