How do I set up Voice over LTE on my phone?

If you aren’t sure if Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) is enabled on your phone, you might want to check. VoLTE calls have high-quality sound and connect faster when you’re calling someone near you. You’re also able to use the internet or apps while on calls thanks to VoLTE. 

Setting up VoLTE on your phone is easier than you might think. To get started, all you need to know is the model of your phone because instructions vary by phone. We’ve got the rest covered.

How to turn on VoLTE on iPhones

  1. Open “Settings”
  2. Select “Cellular”
  3. Select “Cellular Data Options”
  4. Under “Voice & Data”, make sure VoLTE is selected

How to turn on VoLTE on most Android phones

While the naming conventions may vary, the easiest way to see if VoLTE is enabled on your Android phone is to check within the phone’s settings:

  1. Select Settings
  2. Select Search
  3. Type “VoLTE”
  4. Select VoLTE Calls Menu
  5. Switch VoLTE Call toggle to On

Note: If after typing “VoLTE” no menu option appears, the phone either does not support VoLTE or VoLTE is defaulted to On which is likely if the phone is fairly new.

How to turn on VoLTE on other phones

On other phones, you should be able to find the option to turn VoLTE on under the “Wi-Fi” & “Network” categories. Or you can call your carrier for assistance.For more helpful information about VoLTE, check out our blog article about What is VoLTE and Why the F*! You Should Care About it (we said fox)
