  1. Before going through a lot of the hassles, go to settings, cellular, cellular data options and turn off the LTE. This will force the iPhone into WiFi calling. Of course make sure your WiFi calling is turned on. I was told by a tech this is an iPhone issue. If the iPhone detects the slightest cell signal it will not go into WiFi calling. By disabling LTE it forces it into WiFi calling. Just remember to turn LTE back on when you leave the house.
