    Saw it in settings and tried it. Holy crap it worked!!! Turned off my wifi. Called my desk at work - while the recording was playing I could load up new web pages. The "LTE" symbol remained as the phone call was made (no drop to 3G like on my 5).

    What's surprising is I'm out in the sticks of northern MN!! Lol! We've had LTE only for about 2 yrs now.

    Anyways... I'm stoked!!! Glad I stuck it out with Verizon...

    That's wireless calling. However I am unable to enable voice and data. Tells me to call Verizon. Do you have unlimited data?

    No but from what I understand you need "Advanced Calling". I never enabled it, I think it got added when I renewed to get the subsidized price on the iPhone 6 - that or it got enabled when inactivated the iP6 (new SIM that came with phone - didn't use the old SIM from my 5).

    I saw that this afternoon as well. Working like a charm.

    When I switched to verizon from AT&T I really missed this feature. Glad it's back.

    VoLTE will NOT count against any data caps... Verizon's systems know the difference between data used for VoLTE and other data.

    HD Voice is a separate thing from VoLTE....

    Actually, signing up to make such calls is the same thing on Verizon, but they are two separate things.

    My iPhone 6+ with Advanced Calling can make VoLTE calls to non-VoLTE mobiles (any network) and even landlines. The voice quality is greatly improved.

    When I call another VZW VoLTE user, then I also get "upgraded" to HD Voice. That sound quality is amazing! Basically, VoLTE is the pipe and HD Voice runs over it. The latter needs both devices on VoLTE, the former just uses full-rate CDMA, so it's fully supported by all existing phones (even 3G ones).

    Oh yes, significantly. I believe the change is it is forcing full-rate CDMA over VoLTE rather than half-rate CDMA that most of Verizon's network uses nowadays. Basically, it sounds like it did back before the iPhone ever came to Verizon. The surge of traffic over the years from Android and iPhone users has made VZW drop to half-rate in most areas. The difference is quite noticeable.

    The difference between full rate CDMA and HD Voice is also quite noticeable (comparable to FaceTime Audio), but requires support at both ends instead of just one. So at least I know that most of my landline calls will be much improved! The downside is it is ONLY over LTE (no VoWiFi) and thus, if you don't have a strong LTE signal, you actually "Call Failed" when the phone drops to 3G.

    Ok. Lmao I thought yesterday it sounded good but I figured that's just how iPhones sound. I knew my other iPhones sounded way better then android phones

    NOTE: I don't believe VoLTE is available at all yet on AT&T, Sprint or T-mobile. Only Verizon is confirmed at this point.

    So if your network doesn't support VoLTE, setting LTE to "Voice and Data" won't work.

    Probably because it's not available in your area yet...

    Honestly I don't know. It was already on my account when I checked. I got my 6 as an upgrade through Apple and when I got it had to activate the phone so I'm guessing that's when it got added to my account since my area obviously supports it.

    I only saw that setting in My Verizon after I had already discovered I could set LTE for "Voice and Data" (VoLTE) and that it worked flawlessly.

    Does Sprint have any plans to support this? Pretty sure it isn't available right now.

    It works on T-Mobile. I guess they just haven't bothered hyping it up like Verizon has.

    Tmobile hyped volte months ago. Except only a handful of phones were supported then. Verizon needs the hype bc they're late to the party
