Default Wifi calling from overseas?

Has anyone been able to take their stock note 3 overseas and been able to use wifi calling?
If so, the address setup, was it an issue?

Thanks in advance.

I do believe it says it doesn't work overseas when you set it up but haven't done it ... says standard cdma rates apply

According to Sprint: http://newsroom.sprint.com/blogs/dev...-customers.htm

"Unlimited voice calling and messaging on Wi-Fi: All domestic calling and messaging is FREE (standard CDMA international rates apply for international calls)"

Those international rates vary by country but are quite expensive: http://shop2.sprint.com/assets/pdfs/...ide_eflyer.pdf

Yes i see if you are calling overseas.
But im wondering being abroad and calling the US as though you were here in the States.

I think they will be able to tell that you are not in the States and will charge international rates, but we won't know for sure until someone tries it. For myself, it works on my home networks but I haven't been able to get it activated on Denny's Wi-Fi, so calling on an international Wi-Fi might be even more challenging.

A VPN relay through the US should work too.

I don't think sprint can charge you if you have international calling disabled. I have mine disabled and I can't even place call... this would be my arguing point in case of charge but no guarantee. Just in case disable your location / GPS and give it a shot with VPN. Place short call, wait 24h, login to sprint and check is there any charges
