      #46670 - 07/09/14 02:54 PM

Sprint today announced it's adding the Wi-Fi Calling feature to the Samsung Galaxy S5, the seventh smartphone that supports Sprint with Wi-Fi Calling. The software update is rolling out now, and an update notification will be pushed to all our Galaxy S 5 customers automatically during the next few weeks. Here's more info:

Wi-Fi Calling is a FREE service that lets you use voice and messaging services over existing home, office and public Wi-Fi networks. With Wi-Fi Calling, you will experience improved voice, data and messaging services in locations that previously had limited or no mobile network coverage.

Enhanced coverage: Customers will experience better call quality in locations with challenging network conditionsEasy setup: Once activated, everything is seamless and happens in the background.

Unlimited voice calling and messaging on Wi-Fi: All domestic calling and messaging is FREE (standard CDMA international rates apply for international calls).

International Wi-Fi calling will also be available in the coming weeks. It allows customers to make calls and send texts via Wi-Fi in more than 100 countries. The service makes mobile communications possible virtually anywhere in the world.

Once the download is complete, you will be prompted to install the update. Installation will take a few minutes during which the device will be disabled. Once installation is completed, the device will be ready for use and Wi-Fi Calling can be activated by going to your Apps folder and selecting the Wi-Fi Calling icon.
