What does it cost to use Wi-Fi Calling?

With Wi-Fi Calling and BT Mobile you can make calls and send texts in more places when connected to wi-fi.

Charges for calls and texts

There's no change to your regular bill when you use Wi-Fi Calling. Calls and texts come out of your monthly allowance as normal. If you go over your allowances you'll be charged at standard rates. Calls made using Wi-Fi Calling will not be shown as wi-fi calls on your bill.

Depending on your current settings and allowances, you'll be able to make international and premium calls. These will be billed as normal.

Why do I have to pay for calls made over wi-fi?

Although the call or text starts on a broadband wi-fi connection, it's simply using wi-fi to get on to the BT mobile network. The mobile network still carries the call.

Does it use up my data allowance?

Wi-Fi Calling won't use up any of your data allowance. Calls and texts come out of your monthly minutes allowances as normal.

If you send a text from your iPhone while using Wi-Fi Calling, this will be classed as a standard text and not an iMessage.
