HTC One max gets Wi-Fi Calling
By Mark Elliott
A software update is available to our HTC One® max customers, making it our fifth smartphone with Wi-Fi Calling. The update notification will be pushed to all our customers automatically during the next few weeks.
Wi-Fi Calling is provided at no additional charge and 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.
How will customers benefit?
- Enhanced coverage for in-building coverage or areas with challenging network conditions
- Easy 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 at no additional charge (standard CDMA international rates apply for international calls)
Samsung Galaxy S® 4 mini, Samsung Galaxy Mega™, Samsung Galaxy Note® 3 and Samsung Galaxy S® 4 with Sprint Spark™ currently offer Wi-Fi Calling, and Sprint plans to expand Wi-Fi calling to additional devices in 2014.
