One of the great benefits  of the White Calling app over other apps, is the ability to make calls in more than one way. 

You can choose which Call Type is best for you and change this whenever you need to.  This setting can be easily found via the Menu in the app).

Here’s a quick video walk-through to show you how to select your Call Type (or you can skip the video and read on):

Here are our three different Call Types you can choose from:

1. Local Number Calling

Calls using a local number are typically included in bundled minutes from a mobile network and are usually free, so this option is ideal if you have inclusive minutes bundles. Please double-check with your mobile network operator if you're unsure.

Is this option for you? These calls are very reliable, offer great call quality and are as easy as making a normal call. If you have inclusive minutes, we think you’ll love this option.

2. Calling Over Wi-Fi or 3G/4G

With this option, the app makes a call using your phone’s internet (data) connection. This will depend on whether your phone is connected to Wi-Fi or 3G/4G at the time - just make a quick check you are connected before using.

Is this option for you?  This option is useful if you don't have inclusive network minutes or have poor mobile network coverage. Quick note: when making calls over 3G/4G (mobile data), network charges may apply.

3. Calling over Wi-Fi.

Here the app will only ever make calls over Wi-Fi.  If you are not connected to Wi-Fi, you will not be able to place a call - just make a quick check you are connected before using.

Is this option for you? This option is best if you do not have inclusive minutes or a large mobile data allowance and is especially useful if you are on PAYG.


Use this setting to make big savings on local calls (as well as international), when connected to Wi-Fi.  It is also a great solution when you are roaming, particularly outside of the EU.

Once you go to Select Call Type on the main menu of the app you will see the following  screen:

You can change your Call Type as often as you like depending on your calling needs.
