You can make call on your Android phone even when you can’t get a cell phone signal if you have WiFi calling.
WiFi Calling works like other voice over IP (VoIP) applications think WhatsApp and Skype. Namely, Wi-Fi calling allows you to make phone calls over a Wi-Fi connection rather than through your phone carrier’s cellular network. And, Wi-Fi calling enables your phone to automatically switch to Wi-Fi to make or take calls when cell service is poor.
How to turn on Wi-Fi calling
The steps may differ slightly depending on the manufacturer of your Android phone. And WiFi calling has to be supported on your phone and by your carrier to work. Here’s how to do it on Poco x3 pro phones:
Open the Settings. Then go to SIM cards and mobile networks and Choose a SIM card.
And, Enable Make calls using Wi-Fi.
Even during a call, your phone will automatically switch to GSM Calling as you move out of range of your WiFi coverage to allow your call to continue.
WiFi calling does not cost anything extra, it costs just as you were making a regular phone through your carrier’s cellular network. Your existing call and text charges are the same when you use WiFi Calling. Calls and texts still come from any allowances or packs you may have.
