Tri-band capable Samsung Galaxy S 4 gets Wi-Fi Calling
By Mark Elliott
Samsung Galaxy S 4® with Sprint Spark™ (enhanced LTE) becomes a fourth Wi-Fi Calling enabled smartphone from Sprint through an over-the-air update that started rolling out today. The update notification will be pushed to all our customers automatically during the next few weeks.
Wi-Fi Calling is a FREE service that 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 FREE (standard CDMA international rates apply for international calls)
Sprint plans to expand Wi-Fi Calling to additional devices in 2014.
