Okay thanks, learning that an unlocked phone does not have all the bennifits of a branded phone. Okay I saved $200 but will miss out on At&T specail features like wifi calling.

And here thought I was the only one around here on Xfinity Mobile Smiley Very Happy

One thing puzzles me about setting this feature up, though. On my S9 and my wife's S8, I enabled the WiFi calling, entered the required emerency address, and set a preference to use WiFI rather than cellular data for calls when roaming. The main Settings screen shows Cellular Network Preferred regardless of what I select for the When Roaming option. Is this because I am not currently roaming, indicating a preference for local cellualr towers, or is my When Roaming setting not being recognized?

Incidentally, and for the benefit of anyone else new to setting up WiFi calling, I figured out the hard way that this really didn't work until after rebooting the phone.

While I can't turn on wifi calling because the unlocked s9 has no software switch for it, I was able to get AT&T HD voice (volte) by calling AT&T customer service.   I wanted to set up AT&T wifi security and call protect which requires hd voice, so I called customer service and the rep entered an IMEI number from one of their AT&T branded phones and viola, it worked.  I'm pretty sure you can get wifi calling app on play store.
