Wireless - Making a phone call over wireless
If you find yourself in a location with poor cell service (like a basement) and need to make a phone call, you can use a wireless network to make a Wi-Fi call. Wi-Fi calling allows phones to make and receive calls and text messages over the internet instead of the cellular network.
Enabling Wi-Fi calling on your mobile device
Please refer to the following resources for instructions from some common providers.
Using this feature at any UW-Platteville Campus
- Configure your device to enable Wi-Fi Calling
- Connect to UWPlatt or Eduroam (our high speed connections). NOTE: Wi-Fi calling will not work when connected to the UWGuest network.
- Follow the instructions for Wi-Fi calling from your provider. If your provider is not listed in the links above, their web page should provide information about availability and configuration requirements.
