Make and receive calls without a phone signal

WiFi Calling from Vodafone

Get the most out of calling with Vodafone, even when there’s no mobile signal.

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.

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

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