Wifi calling in airplane mode...

When I originally got the wifi calling update, I was ecstatic, because at work I don't get an LTE signal. I always have to put my phone in airplane mode, but I could finally make and receive calls over the wifi network. It was phenomenal. But there's been another update since, and now, it won't do wifi calling in airplane mode anymore. Anytime I try now it says "cannot make or receive calls in airplane mode." What happened? I need to be able to use my phone here, this is absurd.

When you say you put the phone in airplane mode, I assume you ALSO then reactivate wifi on the phone?

Have you checked to see if the new update deactivated wifi calling and it has to be activated again?

Yep. checked this morning. Even tried turning wifi calling off and back on again. Still no dice.

I thought I would mention I can even send text messages on my normal stock iPhone message app (not using the Verizon Message App) while the iPhone is in airplane mode. So my guess is Verizon made a change that just impacts your phone.
