*Calls to 9-1-1 using Wi-Fi Calling operate differently than 9-1-1 calls made over a cellular network or a landline phone. When you call 9-1-1 over Wi-Fi away from your Primary Address, we and our network supplier may have no or very limited information about your location. If possible, use a cellular connection or a landline phone to place any 9-1-1 calls. When making a 9-1-1 call, always state the nature of your emergency and provide both your location and phone number, as the operator may not automatically receive this information. See full Terms and Conditions for details.

Yes. When you first enable Wi-Fi Calling on Flash Mobile, you must provide us with the primary street address at which the Wi-Fi Calling service will be used (“Your E911 Registered Address”). When you a place a 911 call, even if you have Wi-Fi Calling services enabled, if a cellular connection is available, your handset will always place the 911 call over the handset’s native dialer using a cellular connection to improve call quality and location accuracy for emergency services. However, if you call 911 over Wi-Fi, we will route your 911 call to your designated 911 Communications Center based on Your E911 Registered Address.

For example, if Your E911 Registered Address is in New York, but you place a 911 call over Wi-Fi while in California, the 911 call will be routed to a New York-based 911 Communications Center based on Your E911 Registered Address. We will transmit Your E911 Registered Address to the 911 Communications Center that answers the call and it may be used to help emergency responders locate you, but due to the limitations associated with Wi-Fi calling you should always provide the 911 Communications Center with your contact information and current location when calling 911.
