What is Wi-Fi Calling?
Wi-Fi Calling lets you make and receive calls and send messages anywhere with a Wi-Fi network when there's little or no cell coverage.
What do I need to use Wi-Fi Calling?
You’ll need a compatible device and an eligible wireless plan:
- Currently, Wi-Fi Calling is only available on Apple iPhones (with iOS 15.1 or higher) and Apple Watches (with watchOS 8.1 or higher).
- Current postpaid wireless plans that include unlimited calling in Canada are eligible for Wi-Fi Calling. Not available to customers with fusion Internet service.
How do I use Wi-Fi Calling?
Once you’ve enabled Wi-Fi Calling on your compatible device, when there is little or no cellular signal available and you're connected to a Wi-Fi network, your phone will use Wi-Fi for calls and messages. The status bar will display “SaskTel Wi-Fi” when Wi-Fi Calling is available. See Setting up Wi-Fi Calling on your iPhone for instructions.
To use Wi-Fi Calling, VoLTE must be turned on within the network settings of your device. Wi-Fi Calling cannot be used outside of Canada.
How much does it cost?
Wi-Fi Calling is included in compatible rate plans. There’s no additional cost for Wi-Fi Calling. Your standard wireless rates will apply, including any pay-per-use services and international calling rates. Additional fees may by charged by the Internet Service Provider supplying the Wi-Fi you’re connecting to.
Important 9-1-1 limitations on Wi-Fi
If you call 9-1-1 while in Wi-Fi Calling mode, your phone will try to place the call over the cellular network. If there is no cellular coverage, your phone will try to make the call over Wi-Fi and will provide the 9-1-1 call center with the 9-1-1 address you provided during your Wi-Fi Calling setup process. If the location of your emergency is different than this address, you’ll need to provide the 9-1-1 call center with your location. See Changing your emergency address for Wi-Fi Calling.
