You don't need a cell phone provider to call over WiFi.

I mean WIFI calling like IPhone Wifi calling. It was feature added to IPhone 6 or 5. Zain Saudi Arabia support that feature, but not sure about Zain Kuwait.

He’s obviously not asking if he can connect to wifi and be able to use Skype. Seriously Mark!

This is what he’s after: https://youtu.be/Idorb_XZT-4

Not Zain Kuwait.  The MOC doesn’t allow them to do it here.

Zain Kuwait has Wifi calling for ICLOUD now and it is pretty damn amazing across iOS devices.

That is great. Is it free or add on service?

Free even for Pre-paid customers.

VoLTE is a voice calling service that is delivered over a 4G (LTE) mobile network. VoLTE is just like a normal call where it takes from your minutes. Once you start browsing, it starts taking from your data cap. There are no extra service fees.

THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WIFI CALLING.
commented Feb 13 by Ali
Wifi calling is totally different. VoLTE will only allow you to access data while on call. So you can for example search or open your email while you are on the call with someone. WIfi calling in the other hand will allow you to receive calls and make calls over wifi network. For example if you travel to USA, you will be able to make calls to Kuwait or receive calls from Kuwait under local tariff price and Not international price.

I hope this explain it for you.
