How to Enable Wi-Fi Calling on an iPhone 6

WiFi calling allows your iPhone to use your WiFi network to make a call. This is a great alternative for people with poor service at home or work, as it does not rely on your connection strength with the Verizon network to make a phone call. You can also make calls to domestic numbers from international locations without exorbitant charges, provided you are on a WiFi network. (Learn about iPhone roaming settings, too, if you travel internationally a lot.)

Our guide below will point you to the menu on your iPhone where you can enable WiFi calling for your device. You will also need to enter a default emergency address, in case you need to make a 911 call over WiFi.

The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 6 Plus, in iOS 9.3.1. This device is on the Verizon cellular network. Wi-Fi calling is only available on the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, and SE. Additionally, you need to have Advanced Calling or HD Voice enabled on your Verizon account, and you need to be on a monthly cellular plan with Verizon.

Is your iPhone automatically forwarding calls to your iPad when they are both on the same Wi-Fi network? If you would like that to stop, then read this article on disabling call forwarding from your iPhone. newsletter
