sprint logo 1If you happen to have picked up a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Sprint Spark, here is news for you that might just help you sit up and take notice. It seems that the Galaxy S4 with Sprint Spark would make it the fourth Wi-Fi Calling enabled smartphone from Sprint, and this is made possible via an over-the-air update that had started to roll out earlier today. This particular update notification will be pushed to all of Sprint’s customers automatically throughout the coming few weeks, so if you have yet to receive yours, fret not, and play the patience card.

For those who are not in the know, Wi-Fi Calling happens to be a free service which will allow you to use voice and messaging services over current home, office and public Wi-Fi networks. Thanks to the implementation of Wi-Fi Calling, one will be able to experience improved voice, data and messaging services in locations that did not have any mobile network coverage before, or extremely limited coverage ala dead zones.

If you are an existing customer with the said handset, you ought to be able to enjoy enhanced coverage when it comes to in-building coverage or areas with challenging network conditions, while setting up the entire shebang is a snap since everything would be seamless and happens in the background. Best of all, experience unlimited voice calling and messaging on Wi-Fi, but do bear in mind that standard CDMA international rates apply for international calls. [Press Release]
