EE WiFi Calling could solve phone signal woes

Getting a stable phone signal in your home can sometimes be a chore. We’ve all had it happen to us. You’re chatting to a friend in your kitchen and the call suddenly dies when you take it to another room. EE knows how troublesome this can be and has created a new WiFi calling service that could provide a solution to this very common problem.

The new EE WiFi Calling service will allow EE customers to make and receive phone calls and texts over WiFi signals. This means you needn’t worry about any phone signal black spots in your home, although it could make journeys on the London Underground a little bit noisier. The service is only available to pay-monthly customers, but not pay-as-you-go customers.

The good news is that you needn’t download an app to EE WiFi Calling, as it works through your phone’s built-in phone and text messaging software. This already puts EE at an advantage over rival networks like Three, who does offer its own WiFi calling service, but requires customers to download a separate app to use it.

EE WiFi Calling launch date

The EE WiFi Calling service launches on April 10th alongside the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge’s release dates. Both these devices, alongside the Microsoft Lumia 640, will be the first devices able to to use EE WiFi Calling. More devices will be able to use the service in the coming months.

EE Power Bar

EE also announced last week that all of its customers will be able to get a free power bar that keeps their devices charged whilst they’re on the move. It has enough energy to give a device a full charge. Once they’ve depleted their energy bar, EE customers can walk into any EE store to get a free fully-recharged bar that keep their phone’s battery topped up.
