So long as you’re connected to WiFi, you can always make calls and send texts, with or without signal. That’s thanks to EE’s exclusive service called WiFi Calling.
WiFi Calling integrates itself into the phone dialler, so you don't need an extra app. Your experience won’t appear any different.
Calls and texts over WiFi Calling don’t cost any extra, instead they come straight out of your monthly allowance like normal.
Once you activate WiFi Calling, you won’t have to keep on connecting to it every time it’s needed. The process is automated.
Enjoy WiFi Calling on the London Underground, so you can stay connected to the outside world on your morning commute.
It’s really simple to get WiFi Calling activated on your iPhone. There are just three steps you need to follow.
Go to Settings > General > Software Update, select Download and Install. Once completed, you may be required to update your Carrier Version, which can done by in Settings > General > About.
Go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calls. Switch the Allow Wi-Fi Calls toggle to the right, turning it on. It should now be coloured green. This can take up to 24 hours to activate, and EE will send you a text when it’s ready.
