Spotty cell phone reception at home or work?

If you want to improve the quality of your phone calls and you have wifi, do the following to allow your phone to make calls over wireless internet.  You’ll be amazed how much better calls will work.

How to make wifi calls on your iOS phone

  • Click on “Settings”

  • Switch “Wi-Fi Calling on This iPhone” on
  • Click “Enable” Wi-Fi Calling”


How to make wifi calls on your Android phone

How to make wifi calls on your Samsung phone

  • Click the “Phone” icon
  • Tap the “More Options” (three three vertical dots)
  • Tap “Settings”
  • Tap “Wi-Fi Calling” and then toggle the switch to the right to turn the feature on.

The cost to do this is included in most plans.  When I travel overseas, I avoid roaming and international charges by typically making calls whenever I’m in a wifi setting.  Once you turn on WiFi Calling, your phone will automatically use a connected WiFi network and switch back to cellular when needed on its own.

A family friend recently said to me, “hang on, I just need to get to the side window where there’s better service.”   It prompted me to share the above tip to turn on WiFi Calling.  It was a religious experience of magic for my friend who couldn’t believe that simple tweak could change everything about making calls from his home.

…Can you hear me now? : )
