What is Wi-Fi Calling?

Wi-Fi Calling is a way to make and take calls, and text, in any location covered by wi-fi.

No extra charge

Minutes and texts come out of your monthly allowance or normal network rate.

Improved coverage

Connect to your home wi-fi or one of our 5 million BT Wi-fi hotspots.

But how do they work?

Check your coverage

Your handset does the hard work for you. It automatically chooses the best bandwidth for you. First it will try wi-fi, then 4G, 3G and 2G. Our coverage is great, so it’s unlikely you’ll ever be stuck without the ability to make a call.

How to get 4G Calling

Make sure you’re using a compatible handset and you’ve downloaded the latest software.

4G Calling will kick in automatically when you enter an area with 4G coverage.
