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.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news a second time-around considering I’ve already posted this very same message once before. However, thanks thanks to a generic T-Mobile support page, there’s a new rumor quickly making its way around that the Nexus 4 does in fact have Wi-Fi calling if purchased through T-Mobile.
