Bad mobile signal at home - how connect via wi-fi?

I have a Virgin PAYG mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy Fame - 3G) - and have BT landline/broadband.

Unfortunately, the mobile signal in this village - on ALL networks - is VERY poor. 

I believe there is a way of connecting to my home Wi-fi for ordinary incoming/outgoing mobile  calls.

How can I do this, pls?  (I have a BT Home Hub 3.)

Would be really pleased if someone could provide simple instructions as how to do this.

Thanks!

BT does support wifi calling not sure on O2 payg, but here is the hard bit, its only supported on very recent high end phones so iPhone 6/7 HTC 9/10, Samsung Galaxy 6/7 that sort of thing

Hi ccman,

 

I've just looked at O2's TU GO (what they call their WiFi app) and it's only available for Pay Monthly and Business customers.

EE, Vodafone and Three also offer some form of calls over WiFi. I don't know about BT Mobile.
