Internet calling using ethernet cable.

I bought an ethernet cable connector to use the internet without radiation. I want to use internet phone calls, but it asked me to contact AT&T, and so far no one is answering on the chat or the phone 2 hours later I don't know what to do

You can’t do internet calling on an iPhone via a cable. Your iPhone can only connect to internet via WiFi.

No you can make calls on the internet, but you need to contact AT&T first.

🤦🏼‍♀️. I'm afraid you have got this wrong. You cannot make "internet calls" by physically connecting your phone.

You are being told to contact AT&T because what you're doing doesn't make any sense to the phone.

My phone makes phone calls 2 ways; either with a Cellular Connection, or with a Wi-Fi connection.
Physically connecting your phone to your modem or router would cause that secondary device to share your phone's internet connection. I assume you have cellular off on the phone, therefore you are getting the " call AT&T" message.

Whoever told you this was possible was smoking something.

If you are concerned about Wi-Fi and cellular radiation get rid of the iPhone and put it in an old fashioned landline
