WiFi calling

How can I set Wi-fi calling as the default when outside the UK where roaming charges are excessive e.g. £2/minute to make & receive calls? My iPhone is enabled & set-up but I cannot see how to default to this service? The wifi calling symbol does appear but not always available even when in the same place?

Re: WiFi calling

Hi @Proph


I'm afraid wifi calling is not available outside the UK, so you wouldn't be able to use it when abroad..


You can use Whatsapp for free provided the recipient(s) also have Whatsapp on their phone(s).

Re: WiFi calling

More bad news I'm afraid @Proph as the International bolt on is only for calling from the UK to abroad.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
