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.

Additional information

How do I enable Voice over LTE on my device?

If you have an iPhone, go to Settings > Mobile > Mobile Data Options > Enable 4G > Select: Voice & Data.

If you have an Android device and it’s Voice over LTE compatible, Voice over LTE should automatically be enabled.

If you have a device that wasn’t purchased through Vodafone, we can’t guarantee that it will be compatible with Voice over LTE on our network.

Where is Voice over LTE available?

Voice over LTE is available wherever there is 4G coverage. Use our coverage checker to see where 4G coverage is available.

Does it cost extra to use Voice over LTE?

No. Voice over LTE is charged in the same way as all other voice calls and doesn’t use your mobile data allowance.

How do I know when I’m using Voice over LTE?

If you’re using an iPhone, ‘4G’ will be displayed in the status bar when using Voice over LTE.

If you’re using an Android device, ‘VoLTE’ will be displayed in the status bar beside the 4G icon.
