Sprint announced its Wi-Fi Calling functionality at the end of February 2014, and since then Sprint’s been rolling the feature out to several of its device. Today that effort continues with some notable handsets.
Sprint says that it’s adding Wi-Fi Calling to the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. The feature will roll out to all four overs “over the next week or so” in the form of a software update. Once it’s installed, you Sprint iPhone owners will be able to turn on Wi-Fi Calling and conduct higher-quality phone calls that won’t count against their minute allotment.
We’ve seen quite a few Sprint Android phones gain Wi-Fi Calling over the past year, including the Galaxy S5 and One M8. Now iOS folks will be able to enjoy the same functionality. That’s good news for both iPhone owners on Sprint and for Sprint itself since the rollout should dramatically increase the number of customers that are using Wi-Fi Calling and add a feature to tempt prospective customers to the big yellow network.
