A WiFi Calling indicator will appear at the top of your screen. You’re now ready to send and receive calls and text over WiFi.
A couple of things to note when using WiFi Calling
At launch, there are a couple of things which might make your call experience over WiFi Calling slightly unusual. Firstly, you’ll hear the international dialling tone when both parties are using WiFi Calling. And secondly, when a call is put on hold, the person on hold won’t hear the hold beeps. There will just be silence. We’re working to resolve these quirks, but it shouldn’t affect the quality of your service.
