Wi-Fi Calling is among the features offered to T-Mobile customers of Samsung Galaxy Note devices including Note 3 and Note 4. It's considered an excellent solution for coverage issues in and around the house or any place where cellular coverage is limited.

Wi-Fi calling is enabled by default. This means your device will connect automatically after you successfully connect to a wireless network.

This guide will help you manage Wi-Fi Calling feature on your Galaxy Note 4 T-mobile version.

One of the first requisites to use Wi-Fi calling is to register your 911 address at T-mobile website. This must be done to avoid getting the REG09 error upon using the feature. After you've successfully registered your 911 address, you may now proceed with the following:

A. Set up your Galaxy Note 4 to use Wi-Fi or mobile networks


Follow these steps to set the connection preference for your Note 4 device and use Wi-Fi calling or mobile networks:

1. Enable Wi-Fi and connect to a Wi-Fi network.

2. Tap Apps from any Home screen to continue.

3. Tap on Settings.

4. Scroll to Network Connections.

5. Tap to select More networks.

6. Slide the Wi-Fi switch right to the ON position, if necessary.

7. Tap on Wi-Fi Calling.

8. Tap on Connection Preferences.

9. You will be prompted with these options: Wi-Fi Preferred, Cellular Network Preferred, and Never Use Cellular Network. Select one of the given options.

B. Enable Wi-Fi and Connect


After setting up a Wi-Fi network on your Galaxy Note 4, the next thing you should do is to turn on Wi-Fi calling or enable the feature and connect to a network. Follow these steps:

2. Tap on Settings.

3. Tap Wi-Fi under Quick Settings.

4. Tap the Wi-Fi switch to the On position if necessary. When the Wi-Fi is on, the switch moves right and turns green.
