The status bar will display the Wi-Fi Calling icon when Wi-Fi Calling is ready to use.   Do I need a specific device or plan to use Wi-Fi Calling? Yes. To use Wi-Fi Calling, you will need the following: A monthly postpaid voice and LTE data wireless plan (prepaid customers are not eligible) An LTE SIM installed in your device A compatible Rogers device, including one of the following: iPhone 5c, 5s, 6 or 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus or SE with iOS 9 or later installed — remember to update your carrier settings when prompted to do so at the end of the OS installation Samsung Note 5 with software version 6.0.1 or later installed. (other Android devices coming soon) LG G4 with 6.0 or later installed The Wi-Fi Calling feature enabled on your device   Your compatible device must have been purchased from Rogers. If you have a non-Rogers Apple device and no conflicting services, Wi-Fi Calling may work, but we can’t assure that the feature will work properly on your device.   If you have a non-Rogers Android device, Wi-Fi Calling will not work   What type of Wi-Fi connection do I need to use Wi-Fi Calling? To use Wi-Fi Calling, you need access to a public or private Wi-Fi connection. The connection must meet minimum required download and upload speeds to support voice calls. Some Wi-Fi connections may not support Wi-Fi Calling.   Does Wi-Fi Calling use data from my wireless plan? No, Wi-Fi Calling does not use up data from your wireless data plan. When you make a call over Wi-Fi, you will be consuming data over the Wi-Fi connection instead. Internet service charges and overage rates (if applicable) apply in accordance with your internet service provider.   To give you a sense of how much internet data is used, a one-hour Wi-Fi voice call will consume approximately 75MB of data over a Wi-Fi connection.   How is Wi-Fi Calling billed when I am in Canada? Incoming calls and messages received over Wi-Fi Calling while in Canada will be deducted from the airtime and messaging limits included in your wireless plan.   Outgoing calls and messages sent over Wi-Fi Calling while in Canada will be billed as follows: Calls/Messages to Canadian numbers   will be deducted from the airtime and messaging limits included in your wireless plan, and no long distance charges will apply. If you exceed your monthly plan limits, overage rates and/or current pay-per-use wireless rates apply. Calls/Messages to non-Canadian numbers   will be billed according to the rates outlined in your wireless plan or current pay-per-use wireless rates.   Note: You may incur additional long distance charges and/or international message charges if your VPN, DNS or internet provider is set to a country outside Canada.    How is Wi-Fi Calling billed when I am travelling outside of Canada? If you are using Wi-Fi Calling while outside of Canada, the following will be deducted from your airtime and messaging limits included in your wireless plan without incurring any long distance or roaming charges: Incoming calls and messages received from anywhere in the world Outgoing calls and messages made or sent by you to a Canadian number   Roaming and/or long distance charges will vary depending on the roaming option you have on your account. If you have: Roam Like Home TM : Outgoing Wi-Fi calls or messages made to a non-Canadian number will incur the Roam Like Home daily charge. If you have already incurred this charge, then all outgoing Wi-Fi calls and messages made or sent within that 24-hour period will be Roam Like Home-rated. If you have a Travel Pack or other roaming add-on, all outgoing Wi-Fi calls or messages to a non-Canadian number will be deducted from the limit included in your Travel Pack or roaming add-on. If you exceed your limit, overage rates outlined in your Travel Pack or roaming add-on apply.   If you do not have Roam Like Home or a Travel Pack or roaming add-on, your outgoing Wi-Fi calls and messages to a non-Canadian number will be billed according to roaming pay-per-use rates.   Can I make an emergency Wi-Fi call to 9-1-1 while travelling within Canada or the U.S.? Yes. If you plan on using Wi-Fi Calling while travelling throughout Canada or the U.S., make sure to update your emergency address to your most likely location for your device in your phone’s settings. Your emergency address is the one that will be given to emergency services if you call 9-1-1.   We recommend making emergency calls over a mobile network.   What happens if I try to make an emergency Wi-Fi call while outside of Canada and the U.S.? Calls made to emergency services while using Wi-Fi Calling outside of Canada and the U.S. will not be supported. We recommend making emergency calls over a mobile network.   When will my device use Wi-Fi Calling versus the mobile network? In most cases, when you have access to both the mobile network and Wi-Fi Calling (e.g., you have a Wi-Fi connection that is strong enough to be useable), your device automatically defaults to using Wi-Fi Calling. This applies when you are within Canada and when you are roaming outside of Canada.   For iPhones with iOS 9.1 or later, your device automatically defaults to using Wi-Fi Calling when you have access to both Wi-Fi Calling and the mobile network. However, if you have an older version of iOS, your device will automatically default to using the mobile network when in Canada, and Wi-Fi Calling when roaming outside of Canada.   For Android phones, your device automatically defaults to using Wi-Fi Calling when you have access to both Wi-Fi Calling and the mobile network. However, you may change your settings on your device to switch the default setting to the mobile network.   How do I switch between the Wi-Fi network and the mobile network during a call? In most cases, when you move between Wi-Fi Calling and the mobile network, your call will drop. To ensure your call does not drop, you should remain in your Wi-Fi or mobile network’s range for the duration of the call. However, if you have a VoLTE-enabled device and you are moving between Wi-Fi Calling and our LTE network, your call should not drop. Visit   rogers.com/coverage to see where you are covered by our mobile network.   Are there any wireless service features that will not work with Wi-Fi Calling?   Customers with select features and services, including any of the following, will not have access to Wi-Fi Calling: Data blocking Advanced Call Manager Teletypewriter Rogers One Number TM Alternative Line Service Wireless Priority Common Voicemail UMA Hotspot Datacom CS Data FAX and USSD services   You’ll need to remove these features if you wish to enable Wi-Fi Calling on a compatible phone. To get access to Wi-Fi Calling or to learn more please visit the Rogers Community Forums.   Do location-based calls work with Wi-Fi Calling? Some location-based calls may not work if you’re using Wi-Fi Calling when you’re outside your phone’s local calling area. Your phone will assume that you’re making a call from your phone’s local calling area. These calls include 3-1-1 (City Services); 5-1-1 (Traffic Reporting) and 8-1-1 (Health Services).   What if I am having trouble activating the Wi-Fi Calling feature on my device? If you have trouble activating the Wi-Fi Calling feature please visit the Community Forums.   How can I activate VoLTE on my iPhone 6s or 6s Plus?  If you have already activated Wi-Fi Calling, then you’ll need to go to your settings and turn Wi-Fi Calling off and on again to activate VoLTE services on your device. If you have not yet activated Wi-Fi Calling and want to activate VoLTE, follow these steps: Go to   Settings   and select   Phone. Toggle Wi-Fi Calling to ON. Follow the instructions on your screen if it’s the first time you’re hooking it up.   Remember to make sure you are using the latest version of iOS before activating VoLTE on your device.     Wi-Fi Calling Terms and Conditions

Wi-Fi Calling lets you call and text in more places so you can stay connected with friends and family. You can call and text wherever you have a Wi-Fi connection in places like basements, condos and tall buildings — places where you may have had trouble getting reception before.     Do I need a specific phone or plan to use Wi-Fi Calling? Yes. To use Wi-Fi Calling, you will need the following: An iPhone 5c or above (must be purchased from Rogers or Fido) with iOS 9 or later installed — remember to update your carrier settings when prompted to do so at the end of the OS installation The Wi-Fi Calling feature enabled on your phone Wi-fi Calling Ready Account Voice and Data plan with LTE enabled   Please note that prepaid customers or customers with voice only plans can’t use Wi-Fi Calling.     What type of Wi-Fi connection do I need to use Wi-Fi Calling? To use Wi-Fi Calling, you must have access to a public or private Wi-Fi connection. The connection must meet the minimum required download and upload speeds to support voice calls; some Wi-Fi connections may not support Wi-Fi Calling.     Does Wi-Fi Calling use data from my wireless plan? No, Wi-Fi Calling does not use up data from your wireless data plan. When you make a call over Wi-Fi, you will be consuming data over the Wi-Fi connection instead. Internet service charges and overage rates (if applicable) may apply in accordance with your internet service provider. To give you a sense of how much data is used, a one-hour Wi-Fi voice call will consume approximately 75MB of data through a Wi-Fi connection.     How is Wi-Fi Calling billed when I am in Canada? Incoming calls and text or picture messages received over Wi-Fi Calling while in Canada will be deducted from the airtime and messaging limits associated with your wireless plan. Outgoing calls and text or picture messages sent over Wi-Fi Calling while in Canada will be billed as follows: Calls/texts to Canadian numbers will be deducted from the airtime and messaging limits associated with your wireless plan, and no long distance charges will apply.

If you plan on using Wi-Fi Calling while travelling throughout Canada, make sure to update the emergency address in your phone’s settings, as that’s the address that will be given to emergency services if you call 9-1-1. While using Wi-Fi Calling in the U.S., you may be able to call 9-1-1, however, we do not support U.S. emergency addresses so you will need to verbally tell the dispatcher where the emergency is located. We recommend making emergency calls over a mobile network.     What happens if I try to make an emergency Wi-Fi call to 9-1-1 while outside of Canada and the U.S.? Calls made to emergency services while using Wi-Fi Calling outside of Canada and the U.S. won’t be connected. You can make emergency calls outside of Canada and the U.S. only when they’re made over a mobile network.     How do I switch from using Wi-Fi Calling to a mobile network and vice versa? While in Canada, your phone will automatically connect to a mobile network instead of Wi-Fi Calling if both are available. However, while roaming, your phone will automatically connect to Wi-Fi Calling instead of any mobile network if both are available. You will need to remain in your Wi-Fi or mobile network’s range in order to continue your call; if you move between the two connections, the call will be disconnected. Visit   rogers.com/coverage to see where you are covered by our mobile network.     Are there any services that will not work with Wi-Fi Calling? Customers with select features and services, including any of the following, will not have access to Wi-Fi Calling: Data blocking Ringback tunes Advanced Call Manager Teletypewriter   You’ll need to remove these features if you wish to enable Wi-Fi Calling on a compatible phone. To get access to Wi-Fi Calling or to learn more, please reach out to us here in the Community.     Do location-based calls work with Wi-Fi Calling? Some location-based calls may not work if you’re using Wi-Fi Calling when you’re outside your phone’s local calling area. Your phone will assume that you’re making a call from your phone’s local calling area. These calls include 3-1-1 (City Services); 5-1-1 (Traffic Reporting) and 8-1-1 (Health Services).     What if I am having trouble activating the Wi-Fi Calling feature on my device? If you have trouble activating the Wi-Fi Calling feature, try using Apple’s   support page   or reach out to us here in the Community.     How do I turn on Wi-Fi Calling? Wi-Fi Calling is easy to use and simple to set up. Go into your phone settings and do the following:   Select   Settings Select   Phone       Turn on Wi-Fi Calling. Follow the on-screen instructions if it is your first time doing this.         The status bar will display “WiFi Rogers” when Wi-Fi Calling is ready to use.

What is ‘Dual SIM Dual Standby’ (DSDS)? 'Dual SIM Dual Standby' allows you to have two phone numbers on a single iPhone to make and receive voice calls, and to send and receive SMS and MMS. This means you can have two local numbers or use the second line when travelling internationally. On iPhone XR, Xs and iPhone Xs Max 'Dual SIM Dual Standby' is a combination of a physical SIM card and an eSIM. What is an eSIM? The eSIM is embedded into the device without the need to insert a physical SIM card.   Can I activate my iPhone with eSIM on a contract? Unfortunately, no, at this time eSIM is only available through No Tab / Bring Your Own Device plans. If you wish to have a contract to lower the upfront cost of the device, you must activate with a physical SIM card. Can I activate a non-iPhone eSIM device? Yes! We currently support the Google Pixel 3a and Google Pixel 3a XL. Please see, Activate eSIM on a Dual SIM Google Device for more details! If you are attempting to activate an eSIM on a non-certified device (device we don’t support) we can’t guarantee the following: Comprehensive technical support That all your features will work as intended That we would have specific plans for your device, and leveraging current plans may result in unexpected billing or functionality issues (e.g. no voice feature, no PPU voice rates, etc.) How can I tell which phone number I’m using? Each line has a default name “Primary” and “Secondary”. Calls For any outgoing calls, a Primary or Secondary will display on your iPhone. For any incoming calls, the first letter of each label (“P” or “S”) will display on your iPhone as an indicator so you can identify each line. Messages For outgoing messages, you can choose between Primary and Secondary number For incoming messages, it is a single inbox and there is no “P” or “S’ label  In the   Cellular Settings   of your iPhone, you can create your own labels for each line. For example, you can name your lines “Work”, “Personal”, or something else. If I have data on both lines, which data bucket will I use and be billed for? Both lines can support data services; however, you can only access one line’s data bucket at a time. You can set and change the default data bucket through your iPhone’s “Cellular Settings” Your data usage will come out of the data feature you have defaulted to in your iPhone’s “Cellular Settings”. For example, during work hours, you can use the data from your “Work” line, and after work , you can switch to your “Personal” line. For more details, please see the Apple support page. You will continue to receive data usage notifications from Rogers when using a Rogers line. Can I use data while on a call? You can only use data while on a call made or received on the same line that you have selected for your data usage. For example: if you are on a call on Line 1 and your data is set to Line 1 as well, you can use data while you’re on the call. However, if you are on a call on Line 1 and your data is set to Line 2, you cannot use data while you’re on the call. You can access Wi-Fi on either line regardless of which line you have selected for your data usage. How will I be billed for voice and messaging? Voice and messaging are calculated according to the rate plan of the line used for each activity. With Dual SIM, you have the choice of which phone number to use for each call and text.   Are both lines connected to the network at the same time? Yes, both lines are connected to the network at all times. However, when you are on a call on one line (Line 1), the other line (Line 2) automatically goes on standby mode. This means, if someone tries to call you on Line 2 when you are on a call on Line 1, you will not receive a call waiting notification for the incoming call. Instead, that call will be directed to your “Line 2” voicemail if setup. This has implications for 9-1-1 calls. If you call 9-1-1 from Line 1 or Line 2, and the call has either ended or abruptly disconnected, do not use the other line until the 9-1-1 operator calls you back. What happens when I roam? Just as you can choose which line to call, message or use data from while in Canada, you can do the same while you roam. You will continue to receive roaming notifications for each of your individual lines; however, they will appear in the same messaging app. It’s important to pay attention to the line indicator (i.e. Primary or Secondary) in the message app so you can tell which line you are using for roaming, especially if you have different roaming features on each line. If you’ve been using only 1 of your 2 lines to roam (calls, messages, data, etc.), you will be charged roaming on that line. If you answer a call, text or if you use data on the other line, you will also be charged roaming charges on that line. All roaming rates are charged as per the individual rate plan on each line. Will E9-1-1 and T9-1-1 work on both lines? Both lines have the capability to dial 9-1-1. Where E9-1-1 is available, the caller’s number and approximate location will be provided, regardless of the line used.   Are Business / Enterprise accounts eligible? If so, how are they be billed? If you have an enterprise or corporate cellular service plan, check with your company's telecom administrator to see if they authorize the activation of a new line using an eSIM on the corporate account to be used on the Dual Sim device. The billing of the lines on Dual Sim compatible devices is dependent on the plans selected on each respective line and they will appear on the invoice of the account used for the activation. Currently, on Consumer accounts at Rogers, you can only activate a Dual Sim compatible device at a participating Rogers store. Please see our Blog post, here to find the nearest location to you!

  Whether it’s tangled or damaged cords, or a constantly dwindling phone battery, here are ways to combat a few of the most common techie woes.     Damaged power cords   Cellphone and laptop cords take a beating, especially the end you plug into your device. The simplest way to protect your cords from splitting, bending and fraying is to secure a pen spring around them. Over time, constant tugging and pulling creates cord fraying, creating a potential fire hazard.   Disassemble a ballpoint pen by unscrewing the tip, pulling out the ink tube and removing the metal spring. Extend the coil spring and wrap it around your cord closest to the end that plugs into your device. This helps to ensure that the end of your cord is protected, and any existing minor frays, splits and bends are contained so they don’t become worse.     Dying phone battery   If you run a lot of apps or use Wi-Fi, your battery probably drains pretty quickly. When you need your device charged in a hurry, try this simple trick to turn your battery bar from zilch to full in no time.   Turn on   Airplane Mode   (turning on this function depends on your device; for iPhone, for example, go to   Settings   and toggle   Airplane Mode   to   on). Plug in your phone or tablet and charge as usual. (Make sure you turn Airplane Mode   off   to resume normal function on your phone once you’ve charged.)     Dirty headphones   Not only does cleaning them help your cans aesthetically, it eliminates germs and promotes a crisper sound by removing the dust that settles in the speakers.   Combine a solution of warm water and soap. Lightly dampen a cloth in the suds and gently wipe the earpieces and wires clean. 3. If your headphones have removable silicone covers, gently clean those separately with a toothbrush. If your headphones are particularly dirty, try cleaning them using some rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip.   Tip:   Be careful – too much soap will leave a sticky residue and too much water or rubbing alcohol is, well, bad news.     Tangled cords   If you use a laptop, you likely have a number of cords you need to quickly use and/or unplug at your workstation. The easiest way to organize them is a handy little trick using sturdy   bulldog clips   that can be found at most dollar stores.   Clamp   bulldog clips   to the back of your desk or work area. String cables through the openings of the two squeezable metal tips. Your cords will easily slide through the clips’ handles without getting tangled.
