WIFI calling comes to T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521
T-Mobile is currently pushing out a firmware update for the Nokia Lumia 521 which brings a Windows Phone first to the handset- voice calling over WIFI.
The software will update your handset to firmware 1030.6409.1316.0016 but will unfortunately require a hard reset of your device, meaning your game progress and unbacked up data will be lost.
WIFI calling is ideal for extending the range of T-Mobile’s cellular network into bad reception areas such as basements or hilly areas, so it generally considered a very desirable feature.
To get the update:
- Connect to a Wi-Fi data connection.
- From the Home screen, swipe left.
- Scroll to and tap Settings.
- Touch phone update.
- Touch check for updates.
- Follow on screen prompts.
- Wait as your phone restarts and updates.
