Sprint brings free Wi-Fi calling to the Samsung Galaxy Mega and Galaxy S4 Mini

Galaxy Mega 6.3

Sprint has just added two new devices to its free Wi-Fi calling service with plans to add more devices later this year. Users of the Samsung Galaxy Mega and the Galaxy S4 Mini can now benefit from the carrier’s Wi-Fi calling facility. This will be enabled after Sprint rolls out an OTA update to the two smartphones, so make sure you’re on the lookout for an update if you own either of these phones.

Wi-Fi calling is beneficial for users who don’t have proper network coverage in their home or office and will allow users to make phone calls and send text messages using their local Wi-Fi networks rather than relying on mobile networks.

Users will be able to make unlimited Wi-Fi calling, according to Sprint’s official release, so it’s very good news. While domestic calling and texts are free, international calling on Wi-Fi will still be charged. The update will reportedly start rolling out to the two smartphones in the coming weeks.
