How to Setup WiFi Calling on iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5S, 5c for EE UK

We have earlier reported to you that EE is the first UK carrier to launch WiFi calling. It has happened and you can already place and receive phone calls through WiFi network if you are connected to this mobile operator. We will now share an instruction on EE WiFi calling iPhone setup options you can use to text and call through the carrier’s new service.

Unlike Three and O2 carriers that offer WiFi calling service in the United Kingdom through the dedicated applications, EE has spent some time to polish its own WiFi calling feature and doesn’t ask you to install anything on your Apple phone.

How to Setup WiFi Calling on iPhone 6 EE

Firstly, make sure you are connected to EE in the U.K.

Secondly, check your smartphone model. The new service supports iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5S and 5c running iOS 8.3 which you can download through direct links or update to by using OTA-option.

Step 1. To check the version of your mobile firmware you can launch Settings and go to General – About section.

Step 2. If you have updated to version 8.3 on your iPhone that supports WiFi calling you should go to Settings – General – About once again and find the version of your Carrier. It has to be 19.1.

Step 3. To setup WiFi calling go to Settings and choose Phone – Wi-Fi Calls. Turn on this option.

Step 4. The activation of the service should take no more than 24 hours.

Step 5. EE will text you when you are ready to use its WiFi calling service in the UK.

Step 6. Have you got the text message from your mobile operator? Connect to WiFi [EE is cellular signal and EE WiFiCall is the new service] and place calls, receive them, send and get text messages. There is no need to change anything else. Your calls and texts will go over WiFi.

Using WiFi calling option becomes handy when you have no or poor cellular signal but are connected to WiFi hotspot. If you are EE 4G subscriber you don’t have to pay for this carrier’s new service because its cost is already included in your monthly allowance.
