Wi-Fi Calling - make and receive calls without a phone signal


Vodafone Wi-Fi Calling

We know there may be times when it’s hard to get a mobile signal – whether you’re in a rural location or a basement flat, on the London Underground or inside an old building with thick walls.

Wi-Fi Calling lets you make calls anywhere you have Wi-Fi, even when there’s no mobile signal. Just use your phone as normal – the person you’re calling doesn’t even need to have Wi-Fi Calling.

There’s no additional charge for using the Wi-Fi Calling service. All calls you make with it will come out of your plan’s allowance of minutes as usual.

To take advantage of Wi-Fi Calling, you need:

  • A Pay monthly Red Extra or Red Entertainment plan, a Red or Red Value Bundle or Red+
  • A compatible device:
    • Samsung – Galaxy A3 (2016 and 2017), A5 (2016 and 2017), S6, S6 edge, S7, S7 edge, S8, S8+, Note8 and XCover 4
    • iPhone – iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus or iPhone SE
    • Huawei – P10
    • Sony – XZ Premium
    • Vodafone – Smart ultra 7 and Smart platinum 7

Please note:

  • The Vodafone Smart ultra 7 and Smart platinum 7 must have been bought directly from one of our stores, online, or over the phone from our telesales team, for Wi-Fi Calling to work
