Verizon Updates LG G3 with VoLTE
Verizon Wireless announced an over-the-air software update should hit the LG G3 beginning today that adds VoLTE capabilities. VoLTE passes voice calls over Verizon's LTE data network rather than its voice network. A handful of phones already support VoLTE. VoLTE offers HD Voice when both the sender and receiver have LTE coverage and VoLTE-capable handsets. Verizon recently said it plans to expand its selection of VoLTE handsets. Mike Haberman, vice president of network performance for Verizon, said the initial uptake of VoLTE by customers has been excellent.

US carriers have launched a flurry of new entry-level phones from LG and Samsung in recent weeks. The phones include three new models from each of the two manufacturers.
It's funny how all these carriers are focusing on VOIP now that very few people actually talk on their phones...but most people text and only occasionally call, so it's not that big of a deal.
