Verizon prepares for VoLTE (Advanced Calling 1.0) rollout

Verizon VoLTE (Advanced Calling 1.0)Verizon is finally ready to upgrade its wireless network to handle voice over LTE (VoLTE) along with HD voice and video calling. Verizon is calling this feature advanced Advanced Calling 1.0 and announced that this feature will be made available for select devices on its network.

Verizon has listed that the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G3 along with the upcoming Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus are among the devices compatible with Advanced Calling 1.0. 

While, any device that supports VoLTE should be able to get the advanced features, you may need to tweak your settings and turn on VoLTE calling.

Once that is done, you'll get the HD voice and video calling, but there are still some questions left unanswered about the program. The number one issue that needs an answer is whether or not the data usage from VoLTE will count against your cap. This is a thorny issue, because counting against the cap could add up quickly, and Verizon charges a lot for data. But, if it doesn't count towards your cap, it raises Net Neutrality issues.
