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

  1. Open Settings: Go to your iPhone's Settings app.
  2. Tap on Phone (or Cellular): Locate the "Phone" or "Cellular" settings section.
  3. Tap Wi-Fi Calling: Select the "Wi-Fi Calling" option.
  4. Enable "Wi-Fi Calling on This iPhone": If not already enabled, toggle on the switch for "Wi-Fi Calling on This iPhone".
  5. Tap "Prefer Wi-Fi While Roaming":  Underneath the Wi-Fi Calling toggle, you'll see this option. Tap it.

What this does:

Enabling "Prefer Wi-Fi While Roaming" ensures your iPhone will prioritize Wi-Fi connections for phone calls, especially when you're traveling internationally to help minimize roaming fees.

Additional Notes:

  • Carrier Support: Wi-Fi Calling must be supported by your carrier. Check with them if you don't see the option in your settings.
  • Emergency Address: When you first enabled Wi-Fi Calling, you likely entered an address. Ensure this address is accurate for emergency purposes.
