LTE calls over WiFi

so that was interesting -
i have enabled LTE over wifi on my iPhone as in some areas - LTE is horrid so the calls are automatically transferred to your wifi connection.. brilliant. but bad news.

I put my iPhone into airplane mode - because i wanted 3 mins of sanity from all the calls..
then my iPhone rang!!!!! - i blurted out WTF!?! - how am i getting calls?
then i remembered LTE over wifi is on.. d'oh..
so much for total peace and off grid for 3 mins a day.

"LTE calls over WiFi" isn't a thing.

The call is either over LTE, or it's over WiFi. It can't be both.

True that. Actually, given the state of VoLTE in Canada, calls over LTE isn't a thing everywhere, either

check your settings under cellular - wifi calling. I have it enabled. so any calls while i am on wifi are switched to wifi.

Yup. That's called WiFi Calling - not LTE over WiFi.

my point is when that is enabled you will still receive calls even with airplane mode on and wifi on

When would it ever make sense to turn wifi back on while in "Airplane Mode"? The point of Airplane Mode is to turn off ALL wireless systems.

there are many reasons
- when traveling in the US for the day - we have airplane mode on and communicate by wifi
for sip, emails and FaceTime etc
- when in meetings or place of worship - i have it in airplane mode but wifi on..

it would be the only time i actually do the opposite. i leave it in LTE mode, because the crappy planes that air canada uses to fly out east - its seats 10 and flies 800 ft above ground - so most of the time i get LTE and surf lol
