    Sprint adds Wi-Fi calling to improve voice coverage - CNET

    Old news, but I don't remember this being posted. I wonder if the SQN100-4 can have WiFi calling added to it via a software patch, and how much modification would be required to the setup that's in the TMO phones.

    As of when that article was written, only two (Android) phones had it. That may have changed now, but I haven't heard anything about the Sprint Q10 being a device retroactively gaining this feature.

    "Wi-Fi has long been used by wireless carriers and their customers to offload data traffic. AT&T has built large Wi-Fi hot zones in highly trafficked areas as a way to help relieve congestion on its network."

    I didn't realize AT&T set up wifi hot spots to relieve network congestion. I just figured it was a deal with Starbucks. If you recall when the hot spots first showed up, you had to set up an account with Starbucks. It was a cluster. Eventually they dropped that requirement.

    I was at a Starbucks recently and Google was providing the wifi, though when I investigated the IP, it was from Comcast.

    Needless to say I refused to use Google as the host since they were probably data mining.

    LTE Is so fast that I rarely use public wifi.

    They are slowly converting to google with Comcast as the backbone.

    The NSA doesn't like anyone, so everyone is a target.

    I'm certain Google is sniffing Starbucks for data mining. I just drink plain black coffee, but people who drink foofoo stuff st a Starbucks are a key demographic. Lots of disposable income.

    I use business grade DSL at home. They are paid well to not sniff my packets. Comcast does packet inspection. I won't use them.
