Just upgraded to iOS 9.3 and there is no WIFI calling option. I thought this was going to be supported but there is no WIFI option under the Phone icon in Settings. Am I missing it somewhere?

I looked in the Phone section under Settings and there is no option for WIFI Calling.  Everything I have read says that is where it should be when you upgrade to 9.3.

Anyone else having this issue?

iPhone 5S is not supported by Verizon for wifi calling, unfortunately.

Bummer Smiley Sad

BUT, the OP can use a FREE Wi-Fi calling app on his iPhone. It works well but requires a bit of workaround.

Hi,

I didn't realize that Verizon wasn't supporting WIFI calling on the 5s.  Thats a bummer seeing how other carriers are doing it.  That explains why it isn't working.  I was trying to avoid buying a network extender for my office in my basement.  Either that or need to upgrade to a 6 I guess. Any other workaround for a dead spot?

Or you can upgrade to the new SE, that will have wifi calling in the 5S form factor and with 6S insides. $399 for 16 GB, $499 for 64GB - full cost, no payment plan.
