Why compare mobile plans with Finder?

  • We don't charge extra. Prices shown on Finder are the same as those you get directly from mobile plan providers.

  • We regularly work with providers to deliver amazing exclusive offers you won't find anywhere else.

  • We have a team dedicated to monitoring mobile plan prices and keeping deals updated daily.

What you need to know

  • Wi-Fi calling is a feature available on most newer smartphones.
  • It uses a Wi-Fi connection to let you make calls rather than your usual mobile network.
  • Wi-Fi calling is not available from all mobile providers in Australia, so if you would like access to it, make sure you check before you sign up to a new provider.

What is Wi-Fi calling?

Wi-Fi calling lets you make and receive voice calls and SMS over a wireless internet connection instead of your regular mobile network. You need to have a device that supports it, as well as a mobile provider that offers it and access to a stable Wi-Fi network.

Which providers support Wi-Fi calling in Australia?

The following mobile providers currently offer Wi-Fi calling on their plans:

What is the difference between Wi-Fi calling and normal calling?

Normal calling involves making a call over a mobile network, while Wi-Fi calling is where you make a call via the internet through a Wi-Fi connection.

This means that in areas where your mobile network signal is weak and you have access to Wi-Fi, you could be better off using Wi-Fi calling than making a regular phone call.

How do I turn on Wi-Fi calling?

Depending on the device you use, there are different ways to turn on Wi-Fi calling.

Wi-Fi calling on Android

If you have an Android phone, you can turn on Wi-Fi calling by going into your phone app and pressing the 'more' button, or the 3 dots in the top right. From there, go to settings.

Depending on what version of Android you have, from here you'll either need to tap calls and then Wi-Fi calling, or you may be able to tap a switch to turn on Wi-Fi calling directly after hitting settings.

The following are some of the Android devices that support Wi-Fi calling in Australia on the 3 major networks:

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 and later (Telstra only supports from S7)
  • Samsung Galaxy A5 and later (Optus is A30 and later, Telstra doesn't list the A series)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and later
  • Google Pixel 3 and later (on Telstra it's Pixel 2 and later)

Other Android phones by Oppo, LG, Huawei, HTC, Motorola and more might also be supported depending on your provider, so check directly with them.

Wi-Fi calling on iPhone

To turn on Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone, go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling.

If Wi-Fi calling is available, you'll see "Wi-Fi" in the status bar while viewing the Control Centre. Then your calls will use Wi-Fi calling.

The following Apple devices allow Wi-Fi calling in Australia via the 3 main telcos:

  • iPhone 6 and up
  • Watch 3 and later (except for Optus)

Is Wi-Fi calling any good?

It depends what you're looking to get out of Wi-Fi calling as to whether it would be considered good.

If you're in a mobile blackspot or there's an outage, then Wi-Fi calling is useful as long as you have a strong Wi-Fi connection.

But the flip side also applies - if you have a weak Wi-Fi connection, then Wi-Fi calling could be just as susceptible to drop outs as over a mobile network.
