What’s Metro PCS WiFi calling all about?

In order to go in to the details of Metro PCS WiFi calling services, let’s have a brief introduction on what Wi-Fi calling is all about. It is a basically application that allows the user to make or receive calls using a Wi-Fi network. It provides great mobile phone coverage, which is really beneficial. With this application, an individual can get your SMS, and receive your voice calls even if they are in locations where there is no network coverage.

The Wi-Fi calling service that is being offered by Metro PCS is known by the name ‘Joyn’. Joyn can easily be downloaded from the Metro App Store or through Google Play. It can be used over all Metro PCS 4G LTE phones, apart from the Samsung Craft and Samsung Indulge. The most amazing part about this particular service offered by Metro PCS is that you can call any type of phone over Wi-Fi, irrespective of whether it is a landline or a phone of any other carrier. The same rules and rates that apply to regular calls apply to calls over Wi-Fi for long distance and International numbers.

Wi-Fi calling on Metro PCS enables you to call, chat, share videos, photos and files with anyone. By using a simple App called JOYN, you can call, chat, share videos, photos and files with your friends irrespective of whether they are on Joyn or not. However, the one thing that needs to be mentioned here is that in order to place a video call, both you and the person you are calling must be on Wi-Fi and using Joyn. The Metro PCS WiFi calling service uses your Wi-Fi connection instead of the cellular network. So now, it is a simple solution to be in touch even if you are currently in a no network zone.

Now, if you have questions with regards to the quality of the Wi-Fi call that you get to make through this service, then you need to know that the quality depends completely on the strength of the Wi-Fi connection that you are receiving. Also, it depends on the router age. The older routers are capable enough to provide good support to multiple devices. Also, they have outdated software which is not all that desirable for a healthy connection. Make sure that your router is being updated after every three years for the best services.

    This is the most horrible company to have cell service through! The phones are horrible, the sale’s representative was horrible to me after I had the phone for less then a month and it just stopped working, I called customer service and then they were horrible as well! I regret ever buying this phone! A great deal of money and time was wasted…..

    The Joyn app does not support ALL LTE phones serviced by MetroPCs. It does not support any iPhone. It is only for Android devices.

  • I agree, some phones are horrid. I didn’t know this was the case until I switched to the Nexus 6 and activated it on their network. No issues now! Fast, fluid and awesome! I used to think it was the service that was slow and horrible, but it’s clearly the phone that was holding me back!
    I recommend you do something similar; bring your own phone and you should be fine :)

    Also, the Nexus 6 recently got WiFi Calling support, which makes it even better as I can send and receive SMS, MMS and calls over WiFi like any other MetroPCS phone. :)
