Wi Fi Calling, T-Mobile Drop Out
I just got the Eero yesterday. I have no cell signal in my house so I rely entirely on Wi-Fi Calling. I am a T-Mobile Customer. When I walk through my house from one Node to another, my Wi-Fi calling drops out. Is there a way to fix this? If not, this will have to go back as it is a non-starter for me.

Wanted to quickly through in my thoughts.
At the beginning of las December we got 4 eero for our home. On Verizon Wifi calling seemed to work well enough as long as I wasn't walking around the house. If I walked around, the handoff from one node to the other would cause the call to end. As I work from my desk and am mostly stationary this wasn't a problem.
In mid-January we switched all of our devices over to T-Mobile to try to save money. T-Mobile WiFi Calling either didn't work at all or when it did work the user on the other side sounded like a chipmunk.
After a month and a half we ended up moving back to Verizon for sheer quality reasons. Since release 2.2 (I think?) wifi calling has been rock solid.
Clearly not scientific, but it seemed to me that most of the "advanced" features that T-Mobile advertises first usually don't get implemented very well. I could stand on a handful of spots in Dallas and get over 200 down over LTE with them. If I moved I'd get back down to around 10-15.
Hope that was useful. Good luck on getting it resolved either way.Reply
I just got the eero yesterday. We have T-Mobile and experiencing the Wi-Fi call drops as well. But, it also was dropping when leaving the house with Google Wifi and Linksys Velop. Never noticed if it dropped between access points, but honestly never checked. The eero, in short testing, only seems to drop when going between floors, so it may be just fine for us anyway.
GWifi was OK, but no mesh in Bridge mode.
Velop was terrible. Their firmware updates caused horrible latency.
The eero has provided the best speeds I've seen yet, up to 325MBps from my Google Pixel.
I have symmetric gigabit fiber, and the eero has to be in bridge mode. So far, so good. If you do figure out the dropped calls that will be a plus, but I suspect it is more likely on T-Mobile's end.Reply
I too need to be added to this list -- experiencing the same dropped calls with T-Mobile and first generation eero. I have four eero modems, one hard-wired, and five iPhone 7s. Add to this the havoc wreaked upon my eero network when I installed a T-Mobile Personal CellSpot to improve cellular signal. Total disaster.Reply
Bill Dailey Dklane012 While I’ve had T-Mobile issues with eero in the past and we’re solved and then reappeared. The current versions seem to be rock solid with my T-Mobile phones going between two gen one units in a 1500 square foot town house. So I’d suggest making sure they are running latest updates.
Also the t-mobile hotspot that you run that’s wireless is just a disaster and never worked at least for me I have seen an improvement running OS11 on iPhone 7 Plus as well with t-mobile One last thought is make sure you go into setting general on your iPhones and type on carrier and make sure you are running the latest carrier update. Finally every so often a network reset on the phone under setting can clear things up
