    Although Sosh has the best network coverage in Spain, some remote areas of French territory are still insufficiently covered, while others unfortunately do not benefit from any network. Your Sosh plan allows you to overcome this constraint thanks to the VoWifi functionality, in other words calls using the Wi-Fi network.

    The VoWifi - Voice over Wi-Fi - feature comes in handy when your mobile network shows its limits. If the areas where the mobile network is absent are now very few, it is not uncommon for the coverage to be insufficient to make well intelligible calls with good line quality and without the conversations with your correspondent being interrupted.

    Whether at home or anywhere you can connect to a Wi-Fi network, Wi-Fi Calling allows you to bypass poor network coverage and enjoy quality communications through the Internet.

    To take advantage of it, all you need to do is have a compatible mobile and be connected to a Wi-Fi network.


    Wi-Fi calls: Which mobiles are compatible?

    The first thing is to check if your smartphone is compatible with the VoWifi functionality. Indeed, not all mobiles offer the possibility of taking advantage of it. Sometimes a simple update to your smartphone's operating system is enough to bring support for Wi-Fi calling, so make sure your phone is up to date, otherwise it's best to download the latest one. operating system version.

    The good news is that the Wi-Fi calling service is an integrated feature in mobiles, so there is no need to install an application or have to activate any offer in your Sosh customer area. In addition, all Sosh offers are compatible with Wi-Fi calling, except for blocked plans.


    To find out if your mobile supports Wi-Fi calls, you can go to the Sosh customer area. From Home, head to Mobiles > Manage & Troubleshoot, then Mobile > View Datasheet.
