Staying connected has never been so simple now that WiFi is so readily available. It is simple, typically free, and it allows you to stay connected to the Internet. As you already know, you can use WiFi to post on or view social media, play games, online shop, and check emails; but did you know you can use it to make phone calls too?!

What is WiFi Calling?

WiFi Calling is a high-definition voice service that allows you to make and receive calls over wireless Internet networks as opposed to over the 4G or 5G mobile signal that you would normally use.

Why Should You Use WiFi Calling?

You get better call quality and fewer dropped calls when you have WiFi calling enabled. Additionally, it is included at no extra charge if you have with your Optimum service.

How to Turn on WiFi Calling

If you are using WiFi calling for the first time, you might be asked to register a U.S address. The reason for this is so that emergency services can provide 911 dispatchers with your location if your GPS ever is not working.

If you are traveling abroad and have Optimum service, you will need to have WiFi calling turned on by an Optimum Mobile expert. This is worth doing because you will get even better call quality while traveling. Click here to contact Optimum Mobile.
