Nope. Calls and texts made over Wi-Fi to numbers in the U.S. don't use our cellular network, which is awesome because that means you're not using up your mobile plan's data allowance.
Calls and texts usually go through cell towers, but with Wi-Fi Calling enabled, any incoming or outgoing calls & texts will be delivered over the Internet instead.
Wi-Fi Calling is great for when you're in areas that offer little-to-no cell signal but have Wi-Fi; or if you just dont want to use up your mobile plan's data.
Absolutely. Just be sure your phone supports Wi-Fi Calling and you'll be all set.
Once you have Wi-Fi Calling enabled, it just works. In fact, it's even more useful when you're traveling internationally. You can use it to call and send text messages to U.S. numbers for free without having to worry about any international charges.
If there's a reliable Wi-Fi connection, then there isn't any harm in turning it on. It will just help ensure that your calls and texts are still delivered if you happen to be in an area that offers little to no cell signal. If you're out and about without access to Wi-Fi, then you can keep it off. Up to you.
