Rose Medical Center generally has very good cell coverage around most of the campus. However, there are a few areas that tend to have a weaker signal from some carriers. To ensure our employees can stay in communication with each other, we recommend those with iPhone and Android phones use the option for Wi-Fi calling. This setting allows the device to use the Wi-Fi network over the cellular network to make and receive phone calls. Please take the following steps for iPhone and Android to activate this setting.
Setting Up Wi-Fi Calling on iPhone
All of the Wi-Fi call settings are configured under the Settings applications button.
- First Select Wi-Fi
- Turn Wi-Fi on and select Guest_Access
- Then Press Settings in the top left corner
- Select Cellular
- Turn Wi-Fi Calling ON.
- Press the Settings in the top left. You can then press the home button.
Your phone will show that your Wi-Fi calling is now on and working.
How to Activate and Use Wi-Fi Calling on Android
