Wi-Fi Calling - Apple® iPhone® - Determine Wi-Fi Call

When turned on, Wi-Fi Calling may improve call quality while indoors.

Note Notes:

  • Ensure Wi-Fi Calling is activated.
  • Wi-Fi calls always originate in the US, even when you're outside of the US.
    • Calls to US numbers are not billed (except for 411 or other premium calls).
    • Calls to international numbers are billed according to your international long distance plan.


  1. Place a call to the preferred number.
  2. Determine if the call is placed over Wi-Fi by the 'Wi-Fi' indicator (upper-left).
    Note If you're using the iPhone X or newer model, pull down from the top right of the Home screen to access the Control Center to view indicator.
