Wifi calling - talk and text even when there's no network coverage

If you get patchy or no network coverage at all in some buildings on campus, particularly in the Silberrad Student Centre, then depending on your network provider and handset, you may still be able to use your phone as normal (talk and text) using wifi calling.

Wifi calling is supported by most network providers. For some networks you'll need to download an app, for others you just need to change a few simple settings.

We've put together the table below to help point you in the right direction.
