Vodafone UK now rolling out Wi-Fi calling update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge
Vodafone UK has started pushing out a rather unexpected update to all its carrier-branded models of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge located in the United Kingdom. This upgrade carries support for the operator’s fairly new Wi-Fi calling service, which authorizes users to place calls via the Internet when they have no cellular signal without incurring any extra charges.
Unfortunately, you will need to be a subscriber of either a Pay Monthly Red, Red Value, Red+ or Business Premier plan to use the Wi-Fi calling platform. You’ll also need to ensure that your device was bought directly from Vodafone because if you purchased it from a third-party company, it won’t bundle the correct drivers for the feature to work. Other than these two provisos, using the service couldn’t be easier. Simply install the upgrade, then text the word “CALLING” to 97888 to enable it.
