EE WiFi Calling brings calls and texts to every home

Text and call wherever there’s WiFi!

EE has launched WiFi Calling, a new service that allows you to make calls and send texts over your WiFi, even without any coverage.

Designed to benefit those in low-signal areas, EE’s WiFi Calling service is rolling out to selected devices from 10th April.

To begin with, WiFi Calling will be available on the following mobile phones: iPhone 5s, 5c, 6 and 6 Plus. As well as EE branded Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge and S5 devices.

Unlike other communication services like WhatsApp and Skype, EE’s WiFi Calling integrates itself into your dialler, for a much more streamlined experience. In other words, you can use your mobile phone as normal, even when your signal is patchy.

Keeping things simple, WiFi Calling won’t introduce any changes to your bill, as both minutes and texts come straight out of your allowance. Out of allowance calls are charged at your standard rate.

WiFi Calling is available across all EE pay monthly and small business plans, with 4GEE Corporate plans in line to get it this summer.

Below are instructions on how you can get WiFi Calling up and running on your mobile phone.

How to set WiFi Calling up for your iPhone

  1. First of all, you need to check if your iPhone 5s, 5c, 6 or 6 Plus has the latest software, which can be done by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.
  2. Once your iPhone is up to date, make sure you’re connected to your WiFi, then head to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calls > then turn Allow Wi-Fi Calls on.
  3. If you’re connected to your WiFi, you’ll notice the script ‘WiFi Calls’ at the top of your screen. Hurrah! You’re good to go.
