    Default [GUIDE] How-To Enable Wifi Calling in iOS

    Wifi calling is a great feature to allow you to use your phone even if you have little or no signal. Some carriers have had it for a bit, but it is now available with Verizon Wireless as well (with iOS 9.3). Check with your carrier for phone compatibility.

    Once enabled, iOS will switch it on and off as needed, depending on your current cellular signal.

    Go to Settings -> Phone

    Once inside, just toggle the switch to enable:

    Since the wifi signal will not provide 911 information in an emergency you will need to set an emergency address. This would usually be your home but use another address if needed.

    That's it! When enabled and wifi calling is active you should see your carrier name change to let you know.

    For Sprint, hit settings>phone>wi-fi calling>toggle>toggle on Wi-Fi calling on this phone>enable>update emergency address>put your emergency address and you are done. On the far left of your phone will read Sprint Wi-Fi.

    WiFi calling is such a huge boon in areas where your particular carrier can't or won't add towers.

    I find Wifi calling really handy, but here in Spain only one carrier is compatible at the moment
