WiFi calling on iPhone is a really useful feature, it’s very easy to set up and once set up it’s easy to use whenever you need it.
WiFi Calling is designed to work automatically when you need it and ensures you can receive and make calls over WiFi when your iPhone experiences cellular signal issues. This is a great feature that ensures you can make and receive calls even in areas with poor signal, as long as you have WiFi access.
It can be used to make and receive calls over a WiFi network when you would normally not be able to make a normal call due to poor or no cellular signal. This can be very handy in areas with poor cell coverage, but you do have WiFi access.
How do I set up calls over WiFi on my iPhone?
In order for you to be able to use WiFi calling on your device, you need to enable this feature. To do this, you need to go to Settings > Mobile Data > WiFi Calling and then turn on the toggle.
That’s it, the feature is now set up and your iPhone and your phone will now be able to make and receive calls over WiFi while you’re connected to it.
There are no charges for calling WiFi on your iPhone, and this can come in handy when you have a weak signal or no signal on your provider’s network but still have WiFi access.
It can also be handy if you need to make an emergency call. Your iPhone will automatically switch them to cellular if you have a signal from your carrier. If you have WiFi calling enabled and no signal, it will make calls over WiFi.
How do I enable other devices to make calls over WiFi?
You can also add more than one device to make WiFi calls, for example, you can also make calls using iPhone to iPad or Mac.
This is another feature that is easy to enable. On your iPhone, you need to Settings > Mobile Data > WiFi Calls, then select Calls on Other Devices. You can then select the device you want to add to use WiFi calling.
If you want to receive calls on one of these devices, you will need to change some settings in FaceTime on that device. To do this, you need to go to Settings > FaceTime > iPhone Calls and turn on the toggle. You will not be able to make or receive calls on the secondary device.
