Texting is an essential feature of a smartphone, and the iPhone is no exception. But did you know that you can text with Wifi on your iPhone? This article will guide you on how to do it.
What is Wifi Texting?
Wifi texting is a feature that allows you to send text messages using an internet connection instead of a cellular network. It is useful when you are in an area with poor cellular coverage or when you want to conserve your cellular data usage.
Here are the steps to text with Wifi on your iPhone:
Step 1: Connect to a Wifi Network
Make sure that your iPhone is connected to a Wifi network. You can do this by going to “Settings” and selecting “Wifi”. Choose the Wifi network you want to connect to and enter the password if required.
Step 2: Enable Wifi Calling
Go to “Settings” and select “Cellular”. Scroll down and find “Wifi Calling”. Turn on the switch next to it. If you don’t see this option, your carrier may not support Wifi Calling.
Step 3: Enable SMS over Wifi
Go to “Settings” and select “Messages”. Scroll down and find “SMS/MMS”. Turn on the switch next to “Send as SMS” and “MMS Messaging”.
Step 4: Start Texting
Open the Messages app and start texting as usual. Your iPhone will automatically switch to Wifi calling when it detects a weak cellular signal. You can also make and receive calls over Wifi using the same feature.
