From now on, you can easily be reached on your smartphone everywhere in Belgium where Wi-Fi is available. With VoWiFi, you can make and receive calls and send and receive text messages via the Wi-Fi network!
It's very simple: you don't need any applications, new contact list or new login. All you need is a compatible mobile phone, active VoWifi and to be connected to a Wi-Fi network at home or elsewhere.
During your voice call, your smartphone automatically connects to the most appropriate network to provide you the best calling experience possible.
If your mobile coverage is good you will be using the cellular network, but in case this VoLTE (4G) coverage is weak, the device will switch to Wi-Fi seamlessly and your voice call will continue. When leaving the area with weak coverage, the device will switch back automatically to VoLTE (4G), and your call continues.
There is no additional charge for using Proximus VoWiFi.
The SMS you have received from Proximus guided you to this page, meaning you have a compatible device and a Proximus subscription.
Check if you have the right software on your device, if this is not the case please do an update.
To enable/disable calls over Wi-Fi (e.g. for a Samsung Galaxy S10+), press Wi-Fi Calling in the Notification Panel to enable or disable the functionality.
Note: sometimes you may need to restart your device to effectively activate the feature.
