While Visible is taking a cautious approach to the roll-out of it's Wi-Fi calling feature, it's committed to expanding support in the future. Making sure things go smoothly for users is essential. A carrier needs to be confident that customers can make and receive calls whenever they need to without having to reconsider their network.

Nobody wants to drop an urgent call because their phone isn't fully ready for a new feature, so I appreciate Visible's cautious optimism on rolling out the Wi-Fi calling feature. For the time being, any other voice over internet protocol service should work just fine on Wi-Fi or Visible's unlimited LTE data such as Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, or Line.

Please fill in the 911 information

This is an easy step to skip, especially if you're in a hurry, but taking the time to do this correctly can quite literally be a lifesaver.

When you enable Wi-Fi calling, you will be required to enter the address of the Wi-Fi connection for emergency services. While most of the time, in an emergency call, the caller will be able to confirm an address or a phone's GPS may be utilized, more information is going to be better for emergency services to be able to help people as quickly and as accurately as possible. Please take it seriously.
