What is Voice over LTE?

Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is a feature that allows voice calling over our 4G network using compatible devices. It allows you to remain connected to the 4G network during calls, which means you can continue using 4G mobile data while making and receiving calls.

To use Voice over LTE you need a device that’s compatible and enabled, and be on an eligible plan.

If you have a device that wasn’t purchased through Vodafone, you may not be able to use Voice over LTE on our network.
