Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and the Microsoft Lumia 640 will have to wait until tomorrow to use the service, but EE customers with an iPhone 5S, 5C, 6, 6 Plus will be able to use EE's WiFi Calling service as soon as they update to iOS 8.3, which is now available to download. For those of you that don't know, WiFi Calling allows users without network signal to make calls and send texts using WiFi, and all without needing to use an app like Three's InTouch.
We've got instructions on how to activate the service on compatible iPhone after the jump.
- Go to Settings > General > Software Update and download the latest update. This will not automatically be pushed to devices, so you’ll need to do it manually.
- Once done go to Settings > Phone > WiFi Calling and switch Allow WiFi Calls to yes.
- EE will start setting up WiFi Calling which could take a couple of hours.
- When customers have the service and are on WiFi, they will see the new ‘EE WiFiCall’ symbol in the top left of their screen.
While there are no confirmed plans as of yet, EE has said they aim to add the service to more handsets by the summer. Head over to the EE website for more information on WiFi Calling
