Wi-Fi calling enables you to make calls using a fixed broadband Wi-Fi connection from your compatible Telstra mobile when you can’t connect to the mobile network. Your mobile simply uses your Wi-Fi network instead of the mobile network, so you can make and receive calls as you would normally. Plus when roaming overseas and connected to Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Calling allows you to make and receive calls back to Australia at no additional charge.
Calls to destinations other than Australia over Wi-Fi Calling when roaming overseas are not enabled and will need to be made over the mobile network. Standard charges apply.
To use Wi-Fi calling, you need to:
- Have a Wi-Fi calling compatible smartphone or tablet. This includes:
- Apple iPhone 6 onwards, Apple Watch 3 onwards
- Samsung Galaxy devices, S7 onwards, Note 5 onwards
- Google Pixel 2 devices onwards
- LG devices G6 onwards
- Have 4G voice calls enabled
- Have up-to-date software
- Turn on Wi-Fi calling

Wi-Fi SMS enables you to send and receive SMS on compatible devices when you’re connected to a supported Wi-Fi network. It’s ideal when you’ve got a Wi-Fi connection, but can’t connect to the mobile network to send or receive SMS messages.
We’re currently rolling out Wi-Fi SMS technology to all Telstra mobile customers with compatible devices. We’ll make Wi-Fi SMS available to select compatible devices that have been tested with the technology to ensure the best possible experience. As we progress, more devices will support Telstra Wi-Fi SMS.
If you’re already using Wi-Fi calling on your device, you just need to make sure you are using a compatible device that has the latest software version. There’s no need to change any other settings on your device.
