New technologies allow mobile phone users to make and receive normal calls through a wireless Internet connection. Wi-Fi is now common in the home, as well as in public places. Wi-Fi is commonly used for Internet connection but it also has another purpose. Nothing is more frustrating than needing to make a call only to discover you are in an area with no cell phone signal, also known as a dead zone. Now, thanks to improvements in technology, Wi-Fi can also help to improve improve cell phone reception.
Purchase an updated cell phone or check your cell phone to see if it has an application or option to connect to Wi-Fi. Your phone must be compatible for Wi-Fi to automatically select Wi-Fi as the main network when you are in a dead zone. Set your phone to this option. Most smart phones have this feature, but it is available on standard cell phones as well.
Search for and install a VoIP application you will use on your Wi-Fi. Look in your phone's application folder to download application to your phone. You can choose the ideal one depending on your mobile operating system. There are a wide range of software pieces like Skype, Truphone or Jajah that will provide you with the highest quality available on the market.
Set up the Wi-Fi application by creating a simple account and then you are ready to go. VoIP is very likely to change the way the telecommunications industry works in the next few years, being a revolutionary system that offers many benefits to anyone. It is simple to use and allows you to make and receive calls when normally you wouldn't in an area that is a dead zone.
