Freedom Mobile first rolled out Wi-Fi Calling on its network on April 26th. Once the carrier announced the availability of the iPhone, it also stated that Wi-Fi Calling would soon arrive on the device.
On Twitter, Freedom quietly announced that select iPhones can enable Wi-Fi Calling, specifically “iPhone 5C and newer.” To enable this feature, simply update to the latest iOS version and also install new carrier update.
Wi-Fi Calling is now available on select iPhone and Android devices giving you even more freedom to talk and text…and making it harder to ignore those frequent calls from Mom.
JK, we know you love it.

In addition, Freedom has expanded the number of Android devices with Wi-Fi Calling. The complete list of Android devices are:
- Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, S8+, S8, Note8, A8 and Xcover 4
- LG V30, G6, G7, Q6, X Power 2, Stylo 3 Plus and V20

Wi-Fi Calling gives Freedom customers the ability to make and receive phone calls, as well as send and receive messages while connected to a Wi-Fi network. Calls, SMS and MMS messages sent this way are deducted from your monthly call and text buckets, says Freedom Mobile.
