Here's how to enable Wi-Fi calling priority on most Android devices. The exact steps may vary slightly depending on your phone model and carrier.

General Instructions:

  1. Open Settings: Go to your phone's main Settings app.
  2. Network/Connections: Look for an option like "Network & internet", "Connections",  or something similar.
  3. Wi-Fi Calling: Find the "Wi-Fi Calling" section within your network settings.
  4. Connection Preferences:  Tap on "Connection preferences", "Calling preferences" or a similarly named option.
  5. Choose "Wi-Fi Preferred": Select the option that says "Wi-Fi Preferred", "Call over Wi-Fi", or something similar. This instructs your phone to prioritize Wi-Fi calls when a Wi-Fi network is available.


  • Not all devices have this option: Some older phones or carrier-specific models may not allow you to change the Wi-Fi calling priority.
  • Carrier Variations:  Some carriers have different menu structures or naming conventions for the Wi-Fi calling settings. If you get stuck, refer to your carrier's support website or contact their help desk.

Example: Samsung Phones

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap "Connections".
  3. Tap "Wi-Fi Calling".
  4. Tap "Wi-Fi Calling Preferences".
  5. Select "Wi-Fi Preferred".
