If you use iCloud-connected devices on Verizon's network, it's time to get excited about the iOS 10.3 release. 

While Wi-Fi Calling on other devices is available on major carriers like AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. It's also  available on smaller carriers like MetroPCS and Simple Mobile.

For whatever reason, Verizon still hasn't trotted out the feature. Fortunately, that should change whenever iOS 10.3 is released.

Beta testers have discovered an Integrated Calling (Calls on Other Devices) function lurking on the early version of iOS 10.3 update. 

With this feature enabled, Verizon iPhone users will be able to make and receive Wi-Fi calls on other iCloud-connected devices, provided they are signed into the same Apple ID that's used on the iPhone. 

So, for example, if you own a Verizon iPhone and a recent iPad/Apple Watch/iPod touch, you'll be able to make Wi-Fi calls over those devices. This works if the iPhone is turned off or if it's on another (or no) Wi-Fi network.
