    Verizon will launch their WiFi calling for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge starting tomorrow (December 8th). Here's a quote from their press release with the details,

    "Beginning December 8, Verizon customers with Advanced Calling on two different Samsung smartphones can make and receive calls and initiate video calls over a Wi-Fi Internet connection. Verizon customers already enjoy the largest and most reliable wireless network in the United States, and Advanced Calling with Wi-Fi Calling provides an alternative for those who wish to use Wi-Fi in the home, office or while traveling.

    Wi-Fi Calling will initially be available on the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and Samsung Galaxy S 6 Edge and will be rolled out as a software update in phases. Additional Android and iOS devices will receive Wi-Fi Calling capabilities via future software updates expected early next year.

    All Wi-Fi calls made to U.S. phone numbers are free. Calls made to foreign numbers are billed at international long distance rates.

    How to Get Advanced Calling with Wi-Fi Calling

    To activate Wi-Fi Calling on Android, customers must first download and install the latest software update and turn on Advanced Calling from the settings menu. Once Advanced Calling is enabled, customers can activate Wi-Fi Calling. When a customer uses Advanced Calling on our 4G LTE network and travels outside of coverage, the call will seamlessly transfer to a known Wi-Fi hotspot when available. Advanced Calling has been available for more than a year and enables HD Voice (on 28 smartphones) and Video Calling (on 21 smartphones) on the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network. For more information on Advanced Calling from Verizon, visit Advanced Calling 1.0 | Verizon Wireless."

    Members with either of these devices need to let us know later this week what you think of the new service from Big Red.
