You need to make a phone call on your iPhone. There’s only one problem: you’re in a dead zone where the cellular reception is weak or completely unavailable. Are you out of luck? No, not if a Wi-Fi network is within reach.
Thanks to Wi-Fi Calling, you can make and receive audio calls as well as video calls via FaceTime. You can also send and receive text messages through iMessage. Wi-Fi Calling can be especially valuable if you need to call 911 for an emergency and can’t get a good cellular signal. Using your iCloud account, you can tap into Wi-Fi Calling for calls on an iPad or an iPod touch, if your carrier supports it. And you can even make calls on an Apple Watch.
To take advantage of Wi-Fi Calling, you’ll need an iPhone 5c or later, and your carrier must support it. In the US, Wi-Fi Calling is supported by the four major US wireless carriers—AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. To check on other carriers both in the US and other countries, see this Apple support page.
