How do I make calls on my Samsung Galaxy S6 using Wi-Fi Calling?

You can make calls on your device using Wi-Fi calling on a Wi-Fi network. All Wi-Fi calls made to U.S. phone numbers are free. Calls made to foreign numbers are billed at international long distance rates.

Connect to Wi-Fi

Before making a call using Wi-Fi, you must first connect to a Wi-Fi network.

  1. From a Home screen, touch  Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Wi‑Fi, and then touch ON/OFF to turn Wi‑Fi on or off.

  3. Touch the network you want to connect to. When you select an open network, you are automatically connected to the network. Otherwise, enter a password to connect.

Setting up Wi-Fi Calling and making a call

Before making a call using Wi-Fi Calling, you must activate Advanced Calling and Wi-Fi Calling on your device.

  1. Make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.

  2. Touch Apps > Settings > Advanced Calling > Activate Advanced Calling.

  3. Touch Activate and follow the online instructions.

  4. From the Advanced Calling menu, touch Activate Wi-Fi Calling and follow the online instructions.

  5. From any Home screen, touch Phone.

  6. Enter a number on the keypad and touch Dial.

Now, the call is made over your Wi-Fi connection rather than your network.
