Is there one spot in your home where your phone signal seems to disappear? While network connectivity is always improving, users still encounter dead spots. These are areas where your phone loses its signal. In today’s post, we discuss Wi-Fi calling and how it can help keep you connected at all times.
The Wi-Fi Calling features enables users to transition seamlessly from their phone network to their Wi-Fi connection. This allows the user to place and receive calls, even if they are in a dead spot. As long as your carrier supports Wi-Fi calling and it is appropriately configured, the feature will activate automatically when needed. When on a call, the network bars might turn into the Wi-Fi symbol with a phone next to it. Remember, if you walk out of range of your router, the call could drop.
Does My Carrier Support Wi-Fi Calling?
Each carrier has their own policy when it comes to Wi-Fi Calling. Click the links below to find out what your carrier’s policy is.
Some carriers charge extra for the feature or deduct any calls or messages sent from your plan. Read the terms and conditions carefully. There are situations where the carrier supports Wi-Fi Calling, but not for your phone model.
