How to use Wi-Fi to make phone calls when your reception is poor.

I’m Adam, and in the forum you can find me as Warwagon. I’ve been running my own computer repair business for the past 19 years. I regularly interact with the typical computer user as a result of this.

The lowest common denominator is taken into consideration when I deliver information to people. Many people have the idea that techies are the only people who join or visit tech websites. Some folks are merely seeking direction. Because of this, some people may find these tech suggestions to be a little too straightforward, but others find them to be helpful.

Did you know that iPhones and Android phones may be able to help folks who have poor mobile coverage at home?

These phones have a feature known as “Wi-Fi Calling.” When a cellphone is linked to Wi-Fi, the call is placed over Wi-Fi rather than the cellular network on the carrier’s network.

To enable Wi-Fi calling on an iPhone or Android device, follow these steps.


  • Choosing Settings then Phone
  • To call over WiFi, tap.
  • Because 911 won’t be able to determine your address from the phone call if Wi-Fi calling is enabled, you will need to input your home address.


Although different Android phone manufacturers occasionally place things in different locations, Wi-Fi calling is generally where I believe it should be. If you can’t find it, look for “wi-fi calling” in the settings menu or look in the drop-down menu labelled “quick settings” for a Wi-Fi Calling toggle setting.

  • Select Settings,
  • then Calls.
  • The Wi-Fi Calling option won’t appear if your carrier doesn’t support it, so select it.

All there is to it is that. This should hopefully improve people’s awful home Internet connections.

If you have bad reception at home, please let us know if your phone calls got better after turning on Wi-Fi calling in the comments section below.

Cheers to computing!
