Are you having trouble getting a signal at home or at work? For crisper conversations, switch to Wi-Fi calling. It’s a way of making calls and sending messages through wireless router in lieu of mobile services. Wi-Fi calling is beneficial in areas where cell service is unavailable or in buildings where service is intermittent. Because Wi-Fi calling isn’t enabled by default on all phones, you’ll have to enable it manually. This post will show you how to go about doing it.
 

What’s WiFi Calling?

There’s a simple option called “Wi-Fi calling” if you’ve had trouble with inconsistent cell service in your office or apartment.
Making calls and delivering messages using your online connection instead of your mobile service is what Wi-Fi calling is all about. 
However, you must first turn on the feature on your iPhone or Android smartphone.
 
While many major carriers, such as AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile, offer Wi-Fi calling, the pricing is determined on your plan. Wi-Fi calling isn’t a sly way to save money or minutes: the same rates and monthly caps apply.
You don’t need to do anything specific to allow Wi-Fi calling once you’ve turned it on. It’s pre-programmed.
In just a few simple steps, you can set up Wi-Fi calling.
