Verizon has made its Advanced Calling 1.0 feature available to the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The free service will pass voice calls over Verizon's LTE 4G network rather than the cellular network. It offers high-quality voice calls and video calls. In order to enable the service, owners of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus need to use the settings tool to allow "voice & data" over LTE directly on their phone. Once enabled, the feature will appear as active in their Verizon account online. VoLTE calls only work between two Verizon VoLTE-enabled devices. The only other Verizon devices that support VoLTE right now are the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G2.

why do we need to use voice over LTE, when you can just make a call over the air? I understand VOIP is useful.
its not VoIP, that wont be available for them for another year or 2, Tmobile and sprint are the only ones using VoIP

VoLTE is just gonna give a better connction, more clarity
I agree. Even if it's a clearer connection, how much clearer could it really be? Seems like it will just take up more bandwidth on the LTE network that I thought was already a concern, which is why they throttle.
This is the only way one will be able to use Voice and Data Simultaneously on an iPhone on Verizon's network.

Other Carriers...

Where as T-Mobile allows VoLTE calls from one handset to any other handset or carrier. Just dial a number, and that call is routed over VoLTE on T-Mobile's end.
I'm wondering as VoLTE rolls out if carriers are going to levy it only working on their network at first to try to get more subscribers?

You know, "We offer the best calling quality. But only on OUR network."
