With a few steps, you can determine whether or not VoLTE is working on your iPhone.
Do you own an iPhone? If you are, there is a strong probability that you have begun to use NTC’s VoLTE on your iPhone. But do you know if the next-generation voice call technology is compatible with your device? Please see the steps below to confirm VoLTE functionality on iPhones.
It appears that iPhone customers’ compromised experience with NTC’s VoLTE has not ended. For starters, it was not available on iPhones, and they had to rely on Apple’s coordination. With the addition of VoLTE support, iPhone owners are now confronted with a new issue: a slight annoyance.
Some iPhone users have expressed concern that they are unable to determine whether VoLTE is active in the background. It is due to the absence of a service symbol or indicator on the notification bar.
If a user has toggled VoLTE and subscribed to their number on Android, the VoLTE sign displays in their smartphone’s notification panel. When the user makes a call, an HD call icon appears as well. As a result, they may simply monitor the Voice over LTE condition in real time. However, iPhone users are having a terrible experience because such icons do not appear in the notification area or when dialing.
However, we will give one or two workarounds to resolve the issue. iPhone owners can use these ways to check the status of VoLTE on their flagship iPhones.
Steps To Confirm VoLTE Status
To check whether your iPhone is working on VoLTE or not, follow these steps below:
- Make a call from 4G.
- Turn off WiFi.
- Check which network it is on.
- You can turn on data to confirm the signal (not required for VoLTE).
- If your device is indeed on VoLTE, either the 4G or LTE icon will keep on showing while making the call.
- If not, you would see either 3G or 2G depending on the strongest network.
The trick here is to render either 4G or LTE icons in the notification bar. If you see 3G or 3G or its variations such as H , and etc. stay assured that you have not been on VoLTE. But the icon of either 4G or LTE while on call means you are exploiting the Voice over LTE service on your iPhone.
Similarly, there is another way to get some relief. NTC provided a 100-minute voice call promotional package during the launch of VoLTE, and it is highly possible that you have subscribed to it as well.
If you enabled the free 100-minute voice call by dialing 1444 and have already made some calls following VoLTE activation, you can check for remaining minutes by dialing *1415*55#. If you have less than 100 minutes left, that signifies your calls were made over VoLTE.
That was the end of it. You can use the above methods to validate VoLTE functionality on your iPhones and continue making HD voice calls and browsing the internet at the same time.
For certain iPhone users who prefer VoLTE for HD calls, the lack of VolTE notice can be a severe disadvantage. However, we hope that the aforementioned solutions can alleviate the annoyance suffered by many iPhone users.
According to Statcounter data, Apple has just risen to fourth place among the top smartphone brands in Nepal. Carrying an iPhone with premium features and having to make such sacrifices does not sound appealing to users.
Keep in mind that iPhones do not support native video calling over VoLTE. However, you can utilize Apple’s own FaceTime software, which is only available within the iOS ecosystem.
