Vodafone WiFi Calling for Business

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 office, on the London Underground or inside an old building with thick walls. But a poor mobile signal no longer means missed opportunities. Make business calls anywhere there’s WiFi, with WiFi Calling.

WiFi Calling is easy to set-up on your business phones. There are no apps and no separate hardware (like signal boxes) to install – and no additional charges* to use the service.

And once you or your employees have connected to the WiFi Network, the phone will automatically switch over to WiFi Calling when there's no mobile signal available, or if it drops below a certain threshold.

WiFi Calling lets you call your customers, clients and colleagues without interruption. Business calls can be made as normal on the phone's regular number to any other phone, including those in the phone’s address book. And the person being called doesn't need to have WiFi Calling.

* Calls made while using WiFi Calling will be charged at the same rate as calls made on the Vodafone network according to your price plan.

When would you use WiFi Calling?

There are plenty of times where having poor or no mobile signal can hinder your workers or your business. Here are some examples where WiFi Calling will give your employees the connection they need.

Home workers

Employees who spend part or all of their time working from home, where they have poor network coverage at their home location but a good WiFi connection.

v-car-hi

Field-based workers

Field-based employees who travel frequently within the UK, including locations with inadequate mobile coverage but where WiFi is available, such as hotels.

Cog

Basement offices

If your business or employees operate within a larger building, such as a basement office, which has WiFi access but no mobile coverage.

Small offices

Smaller branch offices with up to 10 people which has WiFi access but no mobile coverage.

WiFi Calling is especially suitable for providing a smaller-scale equivalent to in-building coverage solutions (less than 10 users on a site), but isn’t a suitable replacement for larger and more complex in-building coverage requirements. Larger organisations should see our range of in-building solutions

All the listed devices will support the WiFi calling service when purchased directly from Vodafone. Please note that phones purchased from other UK telecom providers are unlikely to support Vodafone WiFi Calling (with the exception of iPhones, which should work regardless).

While some devices (like those from Apple and Samsung) will be compatible when bought from 3rd party retailers/resellers/distributors, we are still working with other manufacturers to add settings to devices not purchased through our direct channels.

Please note: we can offer only general guidance on the suitability and use of WiFi Calling, as the performance of the service is dependent on your WiFi network and Internet connection.

The following price plans are not eligible for WiFi Calling: One Net Business, One Net Enterprise and One Net Express plans, VONE_C plans, Business Freedom, Business Sharer, Vodafone Volume Tariff, Mobile Exchange, Mobile Broadband Caller, Legacy Sharer Plans such as Share time, Group Saver, Business Choice, Total Business, Business and any other legacy Business Plans that include VPN.

You cannot use WiFi Calling while roaming abroad, it is available only when you're in the UK.
