    Worked for me. I live in LA County.

    Is this something only available for iPhone 6 and newer phones?

    Though that might vary by carrier.

    Mine says the same.  # on my iPhone belongs to my company so I haven't made the call yet.  Let me know how it turns out.

    No problem.  Please note that it was not an instant process. I called and spoke to a person and explained that while the signal was good in my general area, the couple of blocks around my home was just a dead spot for one reason or another. I also told them that I was going to be working from home (which was true) and I was just as likely to receive calls on my cell as my home office landline and I needed a reliable service. Then told the same story to a manager. They said they would check the signal at my home (outside while I wasn't home). About a week later, they told me they would send me one at no charge. Two other things may or may not have worked in my favor. I have a family plan with 5 lines and for whatever reason, Verizon's signal was fine at my house. I think it was about 4 weeks from my first call to when the microcell arrived. Good luck.

    Is there any additional cost associated with using wifi calling? Whats the difference in this and facetime audio?

    T-mobile's FAQ page popped in a fast search, possibly differs by carrier so I'd look for your carriers FAQ,

    Does not work for me at all even in Silicon Valley, ironically enough. I spent like an hour on the phone with AT&T trying to get it to work, but to no avail. Still bupkis.
