How to use MetroPCS Wi-Fi Calling

Wi-Fi calling is nothing new — it's been around on various carriers for years. MetroPCS Wi-Fi calling — just like many others — lets you make phone calls or send texts even if you have no cellular signal. Typically when you're out of service, you're out of luck. However, with MetroPCS Wi-Fi calling, you can still get through as long as you're on Wifi even if you don't have a solid signal.

What is MetroPCS Wi-Fi Calling?

It's as simple as it sounds. Wifi Calling lets you make calls and send texts over Wi-Fi networks, meaning that when your cellular signal is bad you can still communicate providing you have a Wi-Fi connection. This is helpful in low-service areas, inside buildings or anywhere your signal may drop out.
