Jazz WiFi Calling (VoWiFi) Feature Launched in Pakistan

We have contacted @Jazzpk, but they have yet to confirm the actual launch date of the feature.

Why do we need WiFi Calling? 

The WiFi Calling feature has many benefits, but most importantly, it allows you to make or receive calls even when you have poor or non-existent cellular network coverage. It can be beneficial if you live or work in an area with poor outdoor or indoor cellular service.

Another good thing about WiFi calling is that you don't need to do anything besides enabling the feature. All your calls and texts function as they would if you use the cellular network. And since the feature is baked right into the phone's dialer, no additional downloads are necessary, and all your contacts are available whether or not they are using WiFi calling.

More than that, Calls made over WiFi Calling will use your plan's minutes where applicable, even when you're overseas. You will be charged the pay-per-use domestic calling rate if you do not have any bundled voice minutes. International calls will follow the standard IDD rates.

We have tested the WiFi Calling feature while using the @Jazzpk network in Okara District; take a look at the screenshot below:

The screenshot confirmed that WiFi Calling is provisioned for Samsung Galaxy A715 Model. We will verify its availability while travelling abroad. Stay tuned for an update.

How Jazzpk WiFi Calling Feature Works Overseas

This question is yet to be answered by the @Jazzpk team on how the WiFi Calling feature will work if we use the @Jazzpk network while travelling abroad. 
Let's discuss how Jazz WiFi Calling works if they allow this feature to work while using @Jazzpk overseas.

Calling rates Within Pakistan: 

To any Domestic number:         Your plan's rates, including unlimited calls, will apply.
To any International number:     IDD rates will apply.

Calling while outside Pakistan (Roaming):

To any Pakistani number:         Your plan's rates, including unlimited calls, will apply.
To any International number:     IDD rates will apply.

A valid and active Jazz SIM card is required. You cannot make a call if your line is barred, suspended or terminated. If you have a dual-SIM phone, please insert your Jazz SIM into Slot 1. All Jazz subscribers on postpaid and prepaid plans are eligible for WiFi Calling as long as your device's WiFi Calling & rate plan supports "voice call". It is unavailable for "data only" plans such as Postpaid MB. 

All Jazz subscribers will enjoy Ultra HD & Clearer Voice Call in future. Thanks for reading our post, and remember to subscribe to our social media channels to stay tuned for future updates. Until then, Peace & Blessings :)

  1. The wifi calling is only available for some devices not all, well at least not for my HuaweiP30. But its a good start.
