Kyocera Hydro Vibe latest to get Wi-Fi Calling update

By Mark Elliott

Kyocera Hydro Vibe is the latest smartphone from Sprint to get Wi-Fi Calling. The software update is rolling out now, and an update notification will be pushed to all our Hydro Vibe customers automatically during the next few weeks.

Wi-Fi Calling is available at no additional charge1 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: Customers will experience better call quality in locations 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 FREE (standard CDMA international rates apply for international calls).  
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.
Currently, Wi-Fi Calling is available on HTC One® max, HTC One®(M8), HTC One® (M8) Harman/Kardon edition, HTC One (E8), HTC Desire 510, LG G3 Vigor™, LG G3, LG G Flex, Samsung Galaxy S 4 with Sprint Spark, Samsung Galaxy S® 4 mini, Samsung Galaxy S® 5, Samsung Galaxy S® 5 Sport, Samsung Galaxy Mega™, Samsung Galaxy Note® 3, Samsung Galaxy Note® 4 (coming Oct. 17) and SHARP AQUOS Crystal (coming soon).
