VoWiFi is a technology that enables users to make/receive calls over Wi-Fi without the need to connect to a mobile network. Calls are made using the standard dialer, without the use of an additional application. A call on VoLTE can switch to VoWiFi when a WIFi connectivity is available, without interrupting the call. Likewise, mobile phones will switch to VoLTE (4G Voice) when Wi-Fi signals are weak, without interrupting the call.
Dialog Mobile customers who have capable devices can enjoy VoWiFi service by connecting to any Wi-Fi connection in Sri Lanka. The service will not be offered to customers who are connected to a Wi-Fi network outside the country.
To activate, follow the below mentioned steps:
- Ensure you have a VoWiFi supported device
- Make sure the VoWiFi calling function is set to ‘Active’ on the handset settings
- Request to activate the service by sending a SMS to 678 with “ACT 4GV” (This will activate both VoLTE & VoWiFi)
