Tip of the Week: Disable Calling from Wi-Fi on Your Android Device

Tip of the Week: Disable Calling from Wi-Fi on Your Android Device

If you are an Android user, you may have noticed the Wi-Fi calling option you get when you receive or make a call while connected to a network. It might be a great tool at your disposal if you suddenly find yourself without cell service, but there are situations where you might not want Wi-Fi calling enabled.

Why Would You Disable Wi-Fi Calling?

Sure, there are times when you might like to use your Wi-Fi for calling, like if you’re buffering a long video or downloading something on the larger side, but on the other hand, a slow Wi-Fi connection will mean choppy and unpleasant phone calls. Plus, the connection might not be secure if it’s done over your Wi-Fi connection. Sometimes it’s just plain better to use your mobile data over the alternative.

Let’s discuss how you can disable Wi-Fi calling on your Android smartphone. While these setting names might vary with your operating system, they should be generally about the same, at least mostly.

How to Disable Your Wi-Fi Calling

If you just want to disable your Wi-Fi quickly, you can do so by going to your Settings app and navigating to your Wi-Fi & Network options. Once you are here, select SIM & Network. Select your SIM Card, turn off your Wi-Fi calling, and slide the slider to the Off position. This will disable your Wi-Fi calling on your Android smartphone.

If you need to disable your Wi-Fi calling in a pinch, you can do so from the call menu by tapping the button for Wi-Fi calling right from the menu. This should hopefully make sure that your call quality remains uncompromised.

For any help with your technology or its connections, be sure to contact BSGtech at (866) 546-1004.
