I have an unlocked s6,i am unable to make wifi calls.What is solution

unlocked means you can plug in any SIM card from a telephone service provider.
A SIM card, also known as a Subscriber Identity Module, is a smart card that stores data for GSM cellular telephone subscribers. Such data includes user identity, location and phone number, network authorization data, personal security keys, contact lists and stored text messages.
If you have a service provider and a SIM card, then you need access to a WIFI router that is not password protected and will connect to your service provider. Hope that helps.

add 'conversations' to your shortcut list, go in through shortcuts menu and delete everything in there, ONE AT A TIME. hitting 'delete all' will freeze your phone. found this out on my own since no one knows what the hell is going on with these phones.

When i receive text messages just the number comes up how do i change it to name showing

You need to copy your #s to your phone from your sim card. If your #s are only in your sim card and your preferred storage for your text messages is set to "phone" it's receiving and saving according to that setting. If your preferred storage is set to "phone" it will only tag it with names that are actually saved in your "phone" not sim. *NOTE: You only need to copy to phone the people you want text name tags for. Your incoming calls will not be affected by this.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

This can occur when you compose a message and then hit recipient and then enter the contacts name. The phone will say 'Sending' then 'Cannot send/retrieve messages'.If you enter the recipients NUMBER the transmission will work OK.
