How do I know if I am WiFi calling?

Answered by Cody Janus

To determine if you are using Wi-Fi calling, there are a few steps you can follow. Please note that the process may vary slightly depending on your device and operating system. I will provide general instructions for Android devices, but the steps may be similar for other platforms.

1. Open the Settings app on your Android device. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down on the notification panel and tapping the gear icon.

2. In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Connections.” On some devices, this option may be called “Network & Internet” or something similar.

3. Look for the “More connection settings” option and tap on it. This may be listed as “Advanced” or “Additional settings” on some devices.

4. In the “More connection settings” menu, you should see an option for “Wi-Fi calling.” Tap on it to access the Wi-Fi calling settings.

5. If Wi-Fi calling is enabled, you should see a toggle switch or checkbox next to it. Make sure it is turned on. If it is already enabled, it means you are currently using Wi-Fi calling.

6. Some devices may also display additional information about your Wi-Fi calling status, such as the network you are connected to or the signal strength. Take a look at this information to confirm that you are indeed using Wi-Fi calling.

Alternatively, you can also check the status bar on your device for any indicators that you are using Wi-Fi calling. On most devices, you should see an icon or text indicating that Wi-Fi calling is active. This can vary depending on your device and software version, but it is usually represented by a phone icon with Wi-Fi waves or the text “Wi-Fi Call” or “Wi-Fi” next to the signal bars.

In my personal experience, enabling Wi-Fi calling has been quite useful in situations where cellular reception is weak, such as in basements or areas with limited coverage. It ensures a more stable and reliable connection for voice calls. Additionally, using Wi-Fi calling can also help you save on mobile network usage if you have a limited data plan.

To summarize, to determine if you are using Wi-Fi calling on your Android device, navigate to the Wi-Fi calling settings in the Connections or Network & Internet menu of your device’s Settings app. Ensure that Wi-Fi calling is enabled and look for any indicators in the status bar that Wi-Fi calling is active.
