I am currently abroad using the apartment’s WiFi. Can I use this to make calls out of my allowance- without being charged?

Hey @Kw5 

 

As long as you call anyone using WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger while connected to WiFi then you won't be charged for that call. If you make a call to a mobile number then you will either be charged per minute or from your allowances, depending on the country you are on.

 

WiFi Calling always uses your allowances, it is just a way to connect when your Mobile Network coverage is weak.

 

Kind Regards

Where is it you’ve gone to @Kw5?

You could have a look how much it would cost to use your phone abroad (if it’s not inclusive) on our website here:

Just click the “Roaming” tab and find the country you’ve gone to there.
