Here’s how to add or use Wi-Fi Calling feature on your iPhone without jailbreak or hacking your iOS device. Everything you will need to know is in this guide.
If there is no phone signal, no problem. You can simply use the alternative solution on your iOS device. When you cannot get a phone signal and have got Wi-Fi signal, then, you can still place a call by using the Wi-Fi Calling feature.
Before you jump into the step-by-step tutorial, you’ll have to read the article on what we explain how to set up and use WiF- calling on your iPhone.
Which iPhones can use Wi-Fi Calling?
You will need an iPhone 5c or later. You also need to be on a carrier that supports the Wi-Fi Calling feature. In fact, Apple has a list of compatible carriers on its site – in the UK, for instance, 3, EE, O2 and Vodafone support it – but you should also contact them if you’re not sure.
For owners of iPhone, carriers in the United States support Wi-Fi Calling through AT&T, T-Mobile, and others. Wi-Fi Calling can also be used on the iPad or iPod touch, that too, if they are running iOS 9 or later, Apple Watch (watchOS 2 or later) and Mac (2012 or later, excluding the mid-2012 Mac Pro, and running EL Capitan or later).
Turn on Wi-Fi Calling
Step 1: Go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling and make sure that Wi-Fi Calling is On. To do so, tap the slider so it turns green.
Step 2: Restart your iPhone.
Step 3: Connect to a different Wi-Fi network. Not all Wi-Fi Networks work with Wi-Fi Calling.
Step 4: Turn Wi-Fi Calling off and then On again.
Step 5: Go to Settings > General > Reset. Tap Reset Network Settings.
You may now see a warning that location and identity information will be accessible by your carrier/network operator. Point to be noted is that, your location may also be shared with emergency services if your device has Wi-Fi Calling enabled when you place an emergency call. Happy with that, tap Enable.
You’ll now see ‘WiFicall’ at the top of the screen, between the Wi-Fi strength icon and the name of your carrier. This indicates that the feature is switched on.
Want to Add a Device
While the device which you want to add should be running the latest version of the software. And then:
On your iPhone, go to Settings > Phone and turn on Wi-Fi Calling, then turn on Calls on Other Devices.
2. Tap Add Wi-Fi Calling For Other Devices.
3. On the other device, sign in to iCloud and FaceTime with the same Apple ID/password that you use on your iPhone.
4. Turn on Wi-Fi Calling
* On your phone, go to Settings > FaceTime > Calls from iPhone and tap Upgrade to Wi-Fi Calling.
* On your Mac, open FaceTime and choose FaceTime > Preferences > Settings and select Calls from iPhone > Upgrade to Wi-Fi Calling.
5. When you receive a sex-digit code, enter it on your iPhone and tap Allow.
Note: On Apple Watch, Wi-Fi Calling turns on when Calls on Other Devices is enabled.
Remove a device from Wi-Fi Calling list
If you don’t want to use Wi-Fi Calling from one of your enabled devices, you can simply remove it. Here’s how?
1. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Phone > Calls on Other Devices.
2. In the list of devices, turn off Wi-Fi Calling feature for the device that you want to remove.
To turn off Wi-Fi Calling on your Apple Watch, for instance, go to the Watch App on your iPhone, tap My Watch, tap Phone, then turn off Wi-Fi Calling.
