Sprint Product Ambassador

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime comes with some of the most important and needed features for smart devices. One of those included features is Wi-Fi Calling. Something to note… Wi-Fi Calling is only available on select devices (there are a handful of new smartphones that do not have this feature), but it was included in this priced-right device.

Why would you need Wi-Fi Calling? Well, you may find yourself inside a certain building that blocks coverage and unable to make/receive calls/messages. Sprint’s Wi-Fi Calling combats this issue.

What is Wi-Fi Calling?

Sprint’s Wi-Fi Calling enhances coverage in buildings and other locations. On your Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, 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 your Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime

In order to use this feature on your device, follow these simple steps:

  1. Connect to a Wi-Fi Network
    1. Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi > Long press on Wi-Fi network of choice > Connect to network
  2. Enable Wi-Fi Calling on your Wi-Fi network
    1. Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi Calling > {enter 911 info aka address} Save > Turn ON
  3. Wi-Fi Range Alert
    1. In the Wi-Fi Calling section (Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi Calling), tap the three vertical dots in the upper-right hand corner
    2. 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 Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, you can keep in touch over Wi-Fi while in those coverage challenged buildings. If you change Wi-Fi networks, don’t forget enable the new network with Wi-Fi Calling.


The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is available for purchase from Sprint.
