T-Mobile sets new target date for WiFi calling to be added to the Nexus 6

Nexus 6 pre-order

Ever since T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 7.0 announcement in September, T-Mobile has made a commitment to ensure that WiFi calling would work out of the box on every new smartphone it sold – well, except for the Google Nexus 6 by Motorola. But it would be coming soon in an OTA update, we were promised!

Almost half a year later, here we are – T-Mobile is still selling the Nexus 6, and it still can’t do WiFi calling.

However, T-Mobile promised an OTA update in early 2015, shortly after the phone’s release, that would enable WiFi calling. T-Mobile’s senior product guru, Des Smith, even said on Twitter that they were planning on having it out in the first quarter – in other words, by the end of this month.

Here’s that tweet, from February:

That all changes, though. Des is now saying that they hope to have it out in the first half of this year, or to look at it another way, by the end of June.

That’s definitely not the impression that T-Mobile has been giving people since last October.

Color me disappointed – and impatient.
