What Is Wifi Calling?

#1 Way To Make Calls Without Cell Service

WIFI calling is here to save the day, and we’re here to give you all of the details. 

Picture this, you’re taking the subway downtown to an important meeting and your plan is to wrap up a couple of important phone calls along the way. After hopping on the subway you realize, oh no, there’s no cell service! (But there’s WIFI).  

Or maybe you’ve just moved into the perfect country home, only to find out that you’ve been cursed with lousy cell service. However, your WIFI connection is stronger than ever. 

Most of us have been in a situation where we need to make a call without cell service, and that’s when WIFI calling is our best friend!

What Is Wifi Calling 1

What Is WIFI Calling?

WIFI calling is just like making a regular phone call. However, instead of the call being placed through a cellular network, your provider will switch the call over to a WIFI network. 

All that you need is a WIFI signal and to switch on the “WIFI Calling” option that is located within your device. Don’t worry, we’re going to provide you with the step-by-step setup within this blog post.

Why WIFI Calling Instead Of Other Applications?

Many of us are familiar with applications such as Skype, Whatsapp, Messenger and various others, which all operate under WIFI. The benefit of WIFI calling is that it comes directly built in to our device, by simply switching it on we are good to go! 

We don’t need to install an application, and the person on the receiving end also does not need to as it is treated just the same as a regular call.

We also will have access to our regular phonebook of contacts, rather than transferring them over to an application. WIFI calling can mean taking a few less steps in our already busy day.

What Is The Cost Of WIFI Calling?

WIFI calling will not include any additional charges, instead your carrier will chalk up your WIFI calls under your current eligible rate plan. 

Basically, if your plan offers you the ability to make unlimited, regular phone calls nationwide, your WIFI calling will be treated just the same. With that being said, if you are not sure what your current plan entails, we always recommend checking with your carrier so you have no unwanted billing surprises.
