    When I take or initiate a call on the Apple Watch are the calls WIFI or cellular based? I have the series 2 (6GB) model and use it all the time to talk on it. So are my minutes charged as WIFI calling minutes or cellular calling minutes? I do not have the best reception in my area and need all calls to be WIFI based.

    They will be Cellular minutes if your iPhone has a Cellular connection. It will only use Wi-Fi if your iPhone is on Wi-Fi or if you are away from your iPhone and connected to a known Wi-Fi network.

    Just look at your iPhone and you will actual call in progress.

    It’s based on how your phone is connecting. If the phone has “WiFi” lit, that’s the route. But I’m pretty sure most carriers just count them as minutes regardless of comm route. AT&T is like that.

    Sprint is not like that. They are counted as either WIFI calling minutes, or regular calling minutes. I have unlimited of both but I just like to check which one I use more.
