Among some of the minor changes is something most T-Mo customers will hope remains in the final release later this year: A Wi-Fi calling indicator.

PSA: Sorry Everyone, No Wi-Fi Calling On The Nexus 4

In the hopes of clarifying a bit of confusion and concern I see in the comments, I’ve reached out to T-Mobile to confirm that there will be no Wi-Fi calling on the Nexus 4.
