I’m gonna show you how to set up Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone 6 or 6s. This tutorial is for AT&T (my service provider) and you must have an iPhone 6, 6s or iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus running on at least iOS 9. I recently had another iPhone issue; I wasn’t getting a very good connection when I tried to a make phone call, so my solution was to double check my settings and force Wi-Fi calling!
Today, I thought I’d show you how to set up your Wi-Fi calling and also how to force Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone when it won’t automatically start for you.How to force start Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone when it won't automatically startClick To Tweet
To Set Up Wi-Fi Calling On Your iPhone Follow These Steps
- Open the Settings App on your iPhone
- Scroll down and click on Phone
- Tap Wi-Fi Calling
- Toggle Wi-Fi Calling to the On position
- Type your Emergency Address (AT&T’s Wi-Fi service needs this in order to activate the service and it’ll be used if you dial 911 while using Wi-Fi calling).
- Tap on Verify Address
- Click on OK
Now whenever you have a weak signal or no signal at all, you’re gonna see ‘Wi-Fi’ right after AT&T in your iPhone’s status bar. That will let you know that your call will be made using Wi-Fi. You’re all set, now you can make and receive calls using Wi-Fi on your iPhone with AT&T service!
