LG Nexus 4 will not support T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi calling
For the T-Mobile customers hoping to use Wi-Fi calling on the upcoming LG Nexus 4, the sad news is that the device will not be supporting the feature. Nexus phones are generally developed without much input from the carriers, hence the gap. None of the other Nexus handsets supported the feature and neither shall the next Nexus phone, even if it will be available directly from the US fourth largest carrier.
Without the Wi-Fi calling option you miss out a feature that can save you battery life and offer you loud and clear phone conversations. Besides, without an LTE radio, and with support for T-Mobile’s blazing fast HSPA+42 pipeline, what are the chances for T-Mobile customers to pick up the LG Nexus 4?
The LG Nexus 4 is expected to launch November 13th in the Google Play Store at prices – $299 for the 8GB version, and $349 for the 16GB model. It will launch later next month at T-Mobile for $199 with a signed two-year contract.
We’re not sure if the lack of Wi-Fi calling is actually going to stop a T-Mobile customer from picking up the device. If you’re one of them, let us know your point of view.
