Wireless - Making a phone call over wireless

Instructions for making a phone call from your cell phone when reception is poor using a wireless network .

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.

Wi-Fi Calling at Verizon FAQs
US Cellular Wi-Fi Calling
AT&T Wi-Fi Calling
T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling

Using this feature at any UW-Platteville Campus

  1. Configure your device to enable Wi-Fi Calling
  2. Connect to UWPlatt or Eduroam (our high speed connections). NOTE: Wi-Fi calling will not work when connected to the UWGuest network.
  3. 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.
