About
I've been a user of ARHD 31.6 for a long time, but was sad when later versions did not have WiFi calling. Apps like GrooVe IP and Vonage Mobile work great, but they didn't have the same embedded feel or quality that I was used to with T-Mobile WiFi Calling. After what seemed like pointless searching to get T-Mobile Wifi Calling to work on custom HTC Sense ROMS, I finally decided to take matters into my own hands.


Future of this Addon
My hope for this addon is to have it baked into all of our favorite Sense based ROMS.

Steps to Enable MMS Over WiFi Calling

SPECIAL NOTE:
Send/Receiving MMS will only work with the stock T-Mobile Messages app when on WiFi Calling. This app is included in the above zip.

Download screenshots HERE or HERE.

FIRST YOU MUST INSTALL THE LATEST ZIP FROM ABOVE
Originally, I thought you could just create a new APN with the below settings and MMS would work, but I was not successful. This lead me to think that there must be some code that looks for the "T-Mobile US LTE" APN. Because of conflict of interest, we need to delete the existing APN and create a new one with the same name.
(IF YOU KNOW HOW TO BAKE APN SETTINGS INTO A SENSE 6 ROM, PLEASE LET ME KNOW)
  1. Open the newly installed "APN Backup & Restore" app.
  2. Tap "Ok" to bypass the Android 4.0+ warning.
  3. Tap settings.
  4. Tap "Disable ICS Check."
  5. Tap "Delete APNs."
  6. Tap "Yes" to confirm deletion.
  7. You should now have "Delete succeeded." Go ahead and close.
  8. Open up main android "Settings."
  9. Go into "Mobile data." (make sure airplane mode is disabled)
  10. Go into "Access point names."
  11. Tap settings.
  12. Tap "New APN" and enter in the below settings:
    Name: T-Mobile US LTE
    APN: fast.t-mobile.com
    Proxy: <Not set>
    Port: <Not set>
    Username: <Not set>
    Password: <Not set>
    Server: <Not set>
    MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    MMS proxy: <Not set>
    MMS port: <Not set>
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 260
    Authentication type: <Not set>
    APN type: <Not set>
    APN protocol: IPv4/IPv6
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4
    Enable/disable APN: <greyed out unless there are multiple APN's>
    Bearer: Unspecified
  13. Tap settings.
  14. Tap "Save."
  15. You should now have T-Mobile US LTE selected.
  16. Open the Messages app and answer "Yes" to make Messages the default SMS application.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! You should now be able to send and receive MMS messages on WiFi Calling!

Thought I would give it a try but it was a no go for me on ARHD 81.0 . Dalvik crashing -- over and over.

This is a fantastic idea, there are many people who want WiFi calling, but aren't willing to use a stock Rom just to use it, hopefully app developers will get on board this project

The latest OTA from T-Mobile updates the M7 to 4.4.3/Sense6 and has a major rework of the WiFi Calling software. This is to enable the new free WiFi texting (send/receive) and Visual Voicemail receive when flying on GoGo equipped airplanes.

Just want to say that I'm hugely excited about this.

Does it crash the system UI on any ROM other than ARHD 71.1? I'm on 81 and I'm going to be doing a huge wipe this weekend (internal memory has been slowing down), so I'd love to flash this if it's mostly stable.

FInally got around to pulling the latest T-Mobile OTA and got it running stable on ARHD 81.0. Don't know if it will work on other 4.4.3 sense 6 ROMS or not, but so far I'm lovin' it!!

Couple things to try:
- SIM card swap (turn wifi off, pop SIM out and back in, turn wifi on)
- Set your E911 address on your T-Mobile profile here.
-Turn wifi off, restart phone, turn wifi on. It can take 2 minutes or so for the wifi calling to get enabled finally

In the meantime, I'm checking out some of the files on the MaximusHD ROM to see if I can pinpoint another possibility.
