What is Mint Mobile Wifi calling and text?

In a typical wireless carrier arrangement, your phone will only make calls and send texts when it has a connection to your carrier’s wireless network. 

With Wifi calling and texting, you can use your Mint Mobile service to make calls and send texts. That means that if you are in an area where your signal is weak, you can use a nearby Wifi network not just to surf the Internet, but also make calls.

What is the difference between Wifi calling and Wifi assist?

iPhone users have long had the benefit of Wifi calling and text. However, Wifi calling is often confused with Wifi assist – also an Apple device feature.

Wifi assist has nothing to do with being able to make calls and send texts using a Wifi connection. Instead, it means that your Apple device will use your LTE (if you are connected) to assist a weak Wifi signal at your home or in public.

As such, Wifi assist has a habit of draining data usage, while Wifi calling can bypass the carrier/LTE connection altogether.

Can you use any smartphone to access Mint Mobile Wifi calling?

Wifi calling is not available for every Mint Mobile device. That said, most Android smartphones and iPhones are compatible. Here is a list of the models that Mint Mobile Wifi calling currently supports.
