Wifi and 4G Calling explained

No signal? No problem, with Wifi Calling. Whether you’re at home, in a coffee shop or at the office, if you’re having a signal problem, you can use wifi to call as normal. And 4G Calling lets you make calls over 4G, meaning clearer calls.

With Wifi and 4G Calling you’ll move seamlessly and uninterrupted between wifi and 4G network coverage to continue your call, while being able to check your mail or browse the internet at the same time.

Wifi and 4G Calling is available to iPhone 7, 7 Plus , Galaxy S7 and S7 edge customers on Pay Monthly, sim-only and business tariffs, with more devices coming very soon. Your S7 or S7 edge will need to have been bought directly from O2 and use O2 firmware*. You can check if your phone has the right firmware here.

The best of wifi and 4G

How it works

  • With an eligible device you'll be able to start your call over wifi in the office, and as you step outside you'll seamlessly move onto our 4G network (where available – use our coverage checker).

  • Once we've set you up and you've switched it on in your phone's settings, you're good to go. No need to sign up, register or download an app.

No extra charges

  • Your calls are included as part of your usual tariff allowance, and out-of-tariff calls are charged at your standard rate.

  • If you're connected to a wifi network, or you’ve got a 4G signal, you’ll automatically use Wifi and 4G Calling, you don’t have to do anything once you’ve set it up.

More places to connect

  • You’ll be able to make and take calls wherever you have a wifi connection meaning you can stay in touch in more places than ever, with more public places being added all the time.

  • You’ll also be able to multi-task by browsing the internet or using apps on our fast 4G network while you’re making a call.

More choice

Wifi and 4G Calling won't work with some of our other services including TU Go (or O2 Just Call Me, Mobex or Mobile Voice Recording for business customers). You'll need to remove them to use Wifi and 4G Calling. Don't worry though, if you change your mind later you can always switch back through My O2 or your Business Advisor.
