WiFi and 4G Calling extended
O2 has announced that WiFi and 4G Calling is now available on the Samsung S7 / S7 edge and in more cities across the UK.
WiFi Calling can help when you can’t get a signal and both give you great quality calls. In 4G Calling areas, they work together to provide a seamless and uninterrupted experience as you move from one to another, without the call dropping.
It was launched in March, initially on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but now open to existing, new and re-signing customers who have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, with more devices coming soon.
And in addition to Leeds, London and Slough, 4G Calling is available in Belfast, Bradford, Coventry, Edinburgh, Leicester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield.
If you don’t see a WiFi Calling or 4G Calling menu option, you may have to update to the latest Android firmware and add WiFi and 4G Calling to your account.
Does it cost anything?
No, it’s no different to making a standard call. It will come out of your call allowance or be charged at the standard tariff rate if you run out.
- No extra charges from O2 – a minute is just a minute no matter how you make the call.
- 4G calls will not cost you any data.
- WiFi calls use very small amounts of data over your WiFi connection.
- If the WiFi is unlimited or free (like O2 WiFi) then you won’t be charged anything extra. If your WiFi connection has an allowance, then it will come out of that allowance, and your WiFi provider may charge if you go over.
