Does Mint Mobile support Wi-Fi calling?
The short answer is yes, Mint Mobile Wi-Fi calling is an official feature for all Mint Mobile plans.
Wi-Fi calling works exactly as you’d expect: it sends calls and texts over Wi-Fi instead of the cellular network. This is perfect for those that live in areas with spotty cell phone reception. Wi-Fi calling works on all iPhones and virtually every Android phone. Wondering how to enable Wi-Fi calling? It’s pretty simple, as we’ll explain in the next section.
How to enable Mint Wi-Fi calling
Mint Wi-Fi calling isn’t on by default. You’ll have to take a few simple steps to enable it:
- Start by going to your account dashboard. This can be accessed either via the web or the Mint Mobile app.
- In the account dashboard, you’ll see an option to turn on Wi-Fi calling for the account. Enable it.
- From there, you’ll need to enable Wi-Fi calling on the device level.
How to complete the process on iPhone:
- If you have an iPhone, go to iPhone Settings > Phone.
- You’ll then select Wi-Fi calling.
- A pop menu will appear with a slider that you can press to enable Wi-Fi calling on the phone.
- You’ll also need to go into Settings > Update Emergency Address to put in your exact location for emergencies.
How to complete the process on Android:
- Android devices will vary, but typically you’ll go to Settings > Wireless & Networks.
- From there, you’ll see another menu.
- You may need to click on More Settings to see the option Enable Wi-Fi calling.
- You’ll likely be asked to confirm your address as well, for 911 emergencies.
Mint Mobile wifi calling not working?
What if Mint Mobile Wi-Fi calling is not working? Don’t worry, there are several reasons why it might not work as intended:
- Your phone isn’t properly connected to W-Fi. Ensure you are connected and try again.
- Airplane mode was accidentally turned on. This is easy to fix, just turn it back off!
- Your software is out of date. If that’s the case, try updating and see if it works after.
- Wi-Fi calling isn’t turned on in the settings. Follow the steps we highlighted above to verify this.
- Your phone doesn’t support Wi-Fi calling to begin with.
For the latter problem, you’ll want to check for phone support by going to Settings on an Android device. Enter Wi-Fi calling into the search bar. If nothing comes up, your phone doesn’t support the feature. For iPhone, go to Settings >General > About, and you should see Wi-Fi calling as an option if available.
