Until September last year, Reliance Jio was the only telecom operator in India that offered its services on a VoLTE network. However, in the second week of September 2017, Reliance Jio lost that special status as incumbent telecom operator Airtel also jumped onto the VoLTE bandwagon by launching its VoLTE service in Mumbai.

Since the launch of its VoLTE service in Mumbai, Airtel has slowly expanded its VoLTE footprint across different parts of the country like Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Goa, GujaratAndhra Pradesh, Telangana, KarnatakaChennaiCoimbatore, and more recently in Kolkata.

With VoLTE, Airtel customers enjoy benefits like HD quality voice calls, faster call setup time, and, the ability to make phone calls without disrupting 4G Internet connection. What’s worth noting is that customers can enjoy these benefits without having to pay anything extra as they are charged based on their existing plans.

However, it’s also worth noting that Airtel customers can enjoy these benefits of VoLTE service only if they have Airtel 4G SIM and a VoLTE-enabled handset. If you have a 2G/3G Airtel SIM, you can get it upgraded to 4G by either visiting your nearest Airtel store, or, getting it delivered to your home by filling in this form.

That said, as far as compatibility of a smartphone with Airtel VoLTE is concerned, following is the list of smartphones that currently support Airtel VoLTE.

How to enable Airtel VoLTE on your smartphone ?

  • Check whether your device is compatible with Airtel’s VoLTE network (see list above)
  • Make sure your smartphone is running the latest version of the software provided by the smartphone manufacturer
  • Upgrade to a 4G SIM if you are currently using a 2G/3G SIM. You can get it upgraded either by visiting your nearest Airtel store, or, getting it delivered to your home by filling in this form.
  • If your smartphone supports VoLTE technology, make sure it’s turned on by going to the Settings > Mobile Data > Mobile Data Options > Enable 4G > Turn on Voice & Data menu on iOS device, or, Settings > Mobile Network > Turn on VoLTE call menu on Android device. That said, the option might be tucked inside a different setting based on which company’s Android smartphone you are using.
  • More importantly, if your smartphone supports Dual SIM, be sure to put the Airtel 4G SIM inside the first slot if you wish to use Airtel’s VoLTE services. Also, don’t forget to set the Network Type to Auto by going to the Settings > SIM Networks > Preferred Network Type > 4G/3G/2G menu. Again, the location of the option would vary based on the smartphone.
