From Tuesday, Nepal Telecom’s VoLTE service will be available on iPhones. Telecom recently launched Nepal’s first VoLTE service, which was only available on a few Android phones.
However, using the service on iPhones resulted in sms not being delivered, therefore Telecom sought a solution from Apple. The issue has been rectified, and iPhone customers in Nepal can now use the VoLTE service as well.
The company claims that models following the iPhone 6 will be able to use the service. However, whether your iPhone was produced in China, Japan, or America, the service will not work. Jailbroken phones, on the other hand, will not be able to use VoLTE. According to Telecom, only iPhone handsets with the worldwide version would be able to use the service.
Currently, only iPhones with the 1800 Megahertz band may use 4G LTE. VoLTE on iPhones with 900 Megahertz processors may be included in the next version.
How do I make use of the VoLTE service?
- Dial *444# to activate VoLTE on your SIM. Then go to Cellular Data Option > Voice and Data > LTE and enable VoLTE in the phone’s settings.
- If you don’t see the VoLTE option, your iPhone isn’t compatible with the service. It’s possible that you’ll have to wait for the next update. However, unlike Android phones, even if the service is active, “VoLTE” will not appear on the top of your screen.
- Dial 1444 to see if the service is active on your iPhone. Then dial 1 to get a 100-minute free VoLTE call.
Please wait for the next iOS release if your iPhone isn’t country-specific or hasn’t been jailbroken and still doesn’t support VoLTE.
