Activate Wi-Fi Calling - Phone by Google

Wi-Fi calling allows you to make calls or send and receive texts over a Wi-Fi network. This is helpful in areas of poor cellular coverage.

Note Notes:

  • Ensure HD Voice is activated.
  • Activation requires a valid US address for E911 functionality.
  • Activation requires a cellular data or Wi-Fi network connection.
  • Wi-Fi Calling settings don't transfer after switching devices and/or performing a factory data reset.
  • Make and receive calls over Wi-Fi when outside of the Verizon network coverage area.
  • Wi-Fi Calls always originate in the US, even when a customer is 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 the customer’s international long distance plan.
