Make and receive calls without a phone signal

Wi-Fi 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.

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.
