HTC One max gets Wi-Fi Calling

A software update is available to our HTC One® max customers, making it our fifth smartphone with Wi-Fi Calling. The update notification will be pushed to all our customers automatically during the next few weeks.

Wi-Fi Calling is provided at no additional charge and lets you use voice and messaging services over existing home, office and public Wi-Fi networks. With Wi-Fi Calling, you will experience improved voice, data and messaging services in locations that previously had limited or no mobile network coverage.

How will customers benefit?

  • Enhanced coverage for in-building coverage or areas with challenging network conditions
  • Easy setup: Once activated, everything is seamless and happens in the background
  • Unlimited voice calling and messaging on Wi-Fi: All domestic calling and messaging is at no additional charge (standard CDMA international rates apply for international calls)

Once the download is complete, you will be prompted to install the update. Installation will take a few minutes during which the device will be disabled. Once installation is completed, the device will be ready for use and Wi-Fi Calling can be activated by going to your Apps folder and selecting the Wi-Fi Calling icon.

Samsung Galaxy S® 4 mini, Samsung Galaxy Mega™, Samsung Galaxy Note® 3, Samsung Galaxy S® 4 with Sprint Spark™ currently offers Wi-Fi Calling, and Sprint plans to expand Wi-Fi calling to additional devices in 2014.
