Wi-Fi Calling

Wi-Fi Calling is a feature available on iPhone and Android that allows you to call and message (text and multimedia) over Wi-Fi when you have little or no cellular coverage. You can use Wi-Fi Calling to call and message as you do on the cellular network, even if the person on the other end is not using Wi-Fi Calling.

Call and text message over Wi-Fi

When Wi-Fi calling is turned on you can call and message as you do normally and your phone will automatically use an available Wi-Fi network if it determines that you have low or no cellular coverage.

When moving out of cellular coverage, if you are making a call, your device will automatically switch to Wi-Fi without interrupting the call when in VoLTE coverage*. If not in VoLTE coverage, your call will drop if you move out of Wi-Fi connectivity while on a Wi-Fi call.
