How to enable Wi-Fi Calling on the Galaxy S9

Galaxy S9 Wi-Fi calling

From being devices built just for communication to become the central driving force of human interaction – mobile phones have come a long way. One of the more advanced features of the modern day cellular device is Wi-Fi calling, which enables you to enjoy high-definition call audio even on a spotty network connection.

Since the Galaxy S9 is the epitome of what modern smartphones can do, it naturally comes equipped with the Wi-Fi calling feature. However, the feature is not enabled by default, so you need to do just a little digging to get this useful nugget enabled on your device.

  • From the home screen of your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus, open the Phone app.
  • Press the three-dot menu icon on the top-right corner of the screen and open the Settings option.
  • Scroll down to find the Wi-Fi Calling option on the screen and enable it.

Another method to enable Wi-Fi calling on your Galaxy S9:

If you can’t find the Wi-Fi Calling feature under this menu, you need to try looking it up in the main Settings of the device.

  • From the home screen of your Galaxy S9, head over the Settings app.
  • Navigate to Connections – Advanced calling and scroll down to find Wi-Fi Calling.
  • Press the toggle switch right next to it to enable the Wi-Fi Calling feature.

You can even use the Search bar at the very top of the Settings menu screen to search for Wi-Fi calling. Remember, the feature is specific to your network carrier and in some cases, can be restricted based on your geographical region or data plan.

  1. I am with Koodo, Telus puppet merchant, and I own a SM- G965F UAE “United Arab Emirates” and was told by a Koodo rep that SAMSUNG makes phones special for Koodo, that, I need to call Koodo. So, Samsung, “once I convinced their rep and once understanding it wasn’t an APP, VoLTE,” definately is confused cause they told me my from a Samsung Distributor in Ontario where I purchased the phone, dosnt have North American settings and VoLTE OR WIFI CALLING is not available in Canada!!! I am getting kissed by both ends.
    What do I do to make VoLTE work?

    [email protected] is my contact if help is out their.

  2. I initially had my phone and service through ATT. I changed to tracphone and it won’t let me enable wifi calling. I get an error message to “contact carrier”. I contacted Tracphone and they couldn’t help.
    Is there anything I can do?

  3. Did all the above and some friggin *#6*imei*b.s. thing as well

  4. I traded in my Galaxy S7 edge (that had Wi-Fi calling) for the Galaxy S9+ that I got directly from Samsung. It doesn’t have the option for Wi-Fi calling. What can I do to get back this feature?
