What is Wi-Fi calling?
Wi-Fi calling is a feature available on some smartphones which allows you to text and call over a Wi-Fi connection, rather than relying on your mobile signal. This is a particularly helpful feature when you are in an area with poor coverage.
This is a free benefit with Asda mobile.
As long as your network supports Wi-Fi calling, the only other thing you need is a compatible phone. If this is something you’re interested in, take a look at our recommendations below.
