This article explains how to set up WiFi Calling on the Huawei Nexus 6P. Just follow the four simple steps below to get started.
1. Connect your phone to WiFi
Can't find your WiFi network? Read our instructions on how to manually search for a network.
2. Update to the latest software version
Tap Settings from the dropdown menu. Scroll down to About Device and tap Software Updates, then click on Update now. A pop-up box will appear to recommend you are on WiFi. Tap install to begin the process. Once installation has completed, your phone will automatically restart. You'll be informed once the process has completed.
3. Switch WiFi Calling on
From the home screen, tap the Apps icon. Scroll to and tap Settings > More (in ‘Wireless & networks’ section) >Wi-Fi Calling - Slide the toggle to the right to turn on.
4. Wait for your confirmation message
Once you’ve turned WiFi Calling on, we'll activate it for you within 24 hours.
You’ll receive a confirmation text when WiFi Calling has been activated. (If you are a corporate customer, you will not receive this message, as you’ll already be set up and ready to go).
You'll see a new icon at the top of your screen next to the WiFi symbol.
You'll then be ready to make 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.
n.b. WiFi Calling is only available on the EE version of the Huawei Nexus 6P, bought directly from us in one of our stores, online at EE.co.uk, through our telesales team, or through corporate sales if you are a corporate customer.
