It works great here in the US. I'm been able to call regular phone numbers when I'm on WiFi and have no ATT cell signal. Hopefully this'll work over there too.
We use WiFi calling heavily in the US - which is how we were able to switch to T-mobile full time are a carrier. But we didn't try using it in Europe.

One possible problem - phones can "know" when they are overseas.

And imessaging. It turns out this is the main way we communicate with family even while in Europe, so having a local number is not so critical.

I seem to recall T-Mobile does allow wifi calling in Europe. We just hadn't tried it.
