So, I had this working for about a month on this phone now barring having to periodically switch airplane mode on and off to get it to connect back for wifi calling (which is irritating).
However, now it just won't come back on again. When I go into Settings -> Phone -> Wi-Fi -> Wi-Fi Calls, I see Allow Wi-Fi Calls is disabled for some reason. When I try to turn it on again, it brings up a white page for a second then shows:
Sorry, your request could not be completed.
Please try again later."
There's no actual error number displayed, just that message.
It's been doing this all day yesterday and today. I haven't seen anyone mention such a thing online.
Nothing has changed on my network. Everything else over wifi works fine. The only thing of note to happen to the phone is the prepaid amount was just billed again. I get incredibly poor service in my house, so this feature is necessary for me.
This is a MGCT2LL/A model iPhone 6+ running iOS 8.0.2
I am having the same issue, also on a 6 Plus. It was working fine until last night. Now, if I try to enabling Wi-Fi calling, I get the same error as you. I have tried restarting the phone, toggling airplane mode, and restarting my router.
Having the exact same issue. Only difference is I have an iPhone 6 (not plus).
I have the same problem with iPhone 5 S running iOS 8.1. This used to work before with 8.0.2. I think I'm going to try factory reset tonight. T-Mobile version is 18.1.
I am having the same problem, T-Mobile! My WiFi Calling worked through yesterday, Sunday, October 19. As of today, I am NOT able to turn my WiFi Calling back on. (It shut itself off overnight.) When I try to turn WiFi Calling on now, I get the same white page as eeyoredragon that states, "Error. Sorry, your request could not be completed. Please try again later."
T-MOBILE, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? WE NEED A SOLUTION.
Are you guys shutting off the cellular data by placing your phone in Airplane mode before turning on WiFi calling?
You can only access these settings when the phone is not in airplane mode (another irritation, but on Apple's part), so no, airplane mode is not on in my case, as I'm trying to just turn the Wi-Fi Calling feature back on.
Normally when I'm using the phone, I turn "airplane mode" on and turn the wifi radio back on to use wifi calling.
I have tried it with Airplane Mode on and off and after power cycling the phone. Nothing works. As others have stated, it was working until last night for many of us.
Sorry - what I meant was
I turned on WiFi calling and then placed the phone in Airplane mode and it worked fine for me
I realized (like you) that Airplane mode greys out access to the Cellular menu
Some people are reporting that the iOS 8.1 update - just out today - fixed their issues.
Well, the problem is that the wifi calling option is not turned on in the phone settings like I said.
It needs to be enabled before it will work like what you're saying (which is what I normally do) yes?
I'm just trying to enable the feature in phone settings. I'm working under the assumption that once I can get it enabled, it will then work like it used to at least.
Ignoring the fact that the setting is not enabled in phone settings, wifi calling does not work no matter what mode I'm in. I wouldn't have noticed it was turned off otherwise.
On a related note, I updated to 8.1 which supposedly also updated carrier settings, but it still does not work. (Same problem as in the original post.)
So can you re-enable it in phone settings?
I am SO glad to see I'm not the only one having this problem today! I was afraid it was just me (hence, no real priority).
Same as everyone else: yesterday, Wifi-Calling worked flawlessly everywhere as it has been since getting my iPhone 6. Woke up this morning to see it was switched off in the Phones setting. Turn it back on and get the same vague error message. I've spoken to a T-Mobile senior tech and they are trying to figure out what the problem is. Apple's already confirmed the phone is fine. I was hoping iOS 8.1 might help; no go.
It seems at least now the problem isn't just isolated to us; hopefully this will get fixed ASAP.
That's what I've been trying to do all day
Having same exact issue on my daughters 5C. Went thru tons of troubleshooting with Apple to no avail - updated to IOS 8.1, Restore, etc. - then just found this thread. Hopefully t-mobile will figure out soon.
