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 minutes allowance 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, Red+, Business Value, Business Extra, Business Premier or Business Black
  • A compatible device:
    • iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus or iPhone SE
    • Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016 and 2017), A5 (2016 and 2017), S6, S6 edge, S7, S7 edge, S8, S8+, Note8 or XCover 4
    • Vodafone Smart ultra 7 or 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
  • Business customers also need to have bought their plan and phone directly from us. Red Sharer, One Net Business, One Net Enterprise and One Net Express plans aren’t eligible for Wi-Fi Calling
