Let’s face it… there are some areas where coverage might be an issue, such being inside particular structures where in-building coverage is minimal. Fortunately, there is a solution to assist in those pesky areas. It's called Wi-Fi Calling. Only select devices come with this handy feature, and Sprint’s LG G Flex2 is one of them.
So you might be wondering.. what exactly is Wi-Fi Calling?
Sprint’s Wi-Fi Calling enhances coverage in buildings and other locations. On your Sprint LG G Flex2, it allows you to call or message from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi connection at no extra charge. Because you’re calling and texting over a Wi-Fi network, your activity won’t count against any minute, text, or data limits on your Sprint plan. However, international rates still apply for international numbers.
Enabling Wi-Fi Calling on the LG G Flex2
In order to use this feature on your LG G Flex2, follow these simple steps:
Connect to a Wi-Fi Network
Settings > Wi-Fi > Long press on Wi-Fi network of choice > Connect to network
Enable Wi-Fi Calling on your Wi-Fi network
Continuing from the step above, long press on your Wi-Fi network > select Wi-Fi Calling > If off, turn on Wi-Fi calling > your Wi-Fi Network will now appear in the Wi-Fi Calling Networks section
Make certain it is marked “on”
Wi-Fi Range Alert
In the Wi-Fi Calling section (Settings > Wi-Fi Calling), tap the three vertical dots in the upper-right hand corner
Tap on Wi-Fi Range Alert. The follow message will appear “Enable weak signal audio alert: This service will provide you with In-Call audio alerts when you are going out of range of your connected network. If you hear an audio alert, move closer to you Wi-Fi access point.” I suggest enabling this feature so you are aware when you are walking out of Wi-Fi Calling range.
Now that you have enabled Wi-Fi Calling on your LG G Flex2, you can keep in touch over Wi-Fi while in those coverage challenged areas. If you change Wi-Fi networks, don’t forget to enable the new network with Wi-Fi Calling.
