4 Tips for Making OneSuite Wi-Fi Calls While Traveling Overseas

Written by 

You know the free OneSuite VoIP app allows you to make cheap international calls from worldwide, over the internet. But in order to take advantage of that, you’ll need Wi-Fi or data. Unless you are ready for a data-roaming rip-off, here are things you need to know about making OneSuite Wi-Fi calls from abroad...

  1. Bring a charging adapter

    Yup. You will need it, mainly because most of us who travel, bring at least one device that needs to be charged…also to prevent your phone from running out of battery just when you need to make an important call.

    Electrical systems vary around the world, which means your ability to charge your devices will also vary depending on where you are. You can easily find a travel adapter by searching online. Or, to save you some time, here is a good one:

  2. Stay in airplane mode on your phone, but turn on Wi-Fi

    By doing this, you won’t be able to use data, or send/receive text messages and calls, but you’ll still be able to use Wi-Fi and make calls using OneSuite VoIP app. While turning airplane mode on typically turns Wi-Fi off (by default), you can always re-enable Wi-Fi as you please.

  3. Locate free Wi-Fi spot and password

    Free Wi-Fi is everywhere, sometimes all you need is a little help to find it. While companies like Boingo Mobile will give you unlimited access to hundreds of thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots for a monthly fee, free mobile apps like WiFi Map also helps you locate Wi-Fi access on the road.

    Tips: You might be able to find the Wi-Fi password of locations in the comments on Foursquare.

  4. Weak Wi-Fi? No problem

    Let’s face it, free Wi-Fi is sometimes unstable. But even in cases of weak Wi-Fi, you can still make a quality phone call via OneSuite callback. A callback can be triggered in OneSuite VoIP app or in My Account. Once it’s successfully triggered, OneSuite will call you back* and connect you with the destination number, whether it’s landline or mobile.

Safe Travels!

* To receive a callback at your phone, you will need to turn off airplane mode. Or the callback number could be the direct line of your hotel room, your friend’s landline…etc.
