VoLTE, or Voice over LTE (Voice over Long-Term Evolution), is a technology that allows mobile phone operators to transmit voice calls over the LTE network, instead of the 2G or 3G network. This means that the calls are made in a high speed broadband networkresulting in better audio quality and a faster connection.
With VoLTE, calls connect almost instantly and sound quality is much clearer and crisper, giving you a more satisfying calling experience. In addition, it also allows users to make calls while surfing the internet Seamless, which means you won’t miss important calls while using data applications. That’s why, after more than two years of pleading, Lowi’s customers will be able to enjoy the service.
@Sirius7720 We will have VoLTE available very soon, we will notify you with any news 😉

Vodafone’s 3G shutdown may affect calls from companies that do not have VoLTE, such as Lowi. This is because 3G is commonly used for traditional voice calls, while VoLTE uses the LTE (4G) network for voice calls. When the 3G network is turned off, devices that do not support VoLTE will not be able to make voice calls through the 4G network, they can only do it through the 2G network. Instead, they will have to use internet calling apps like WhatsApp or Skype to make calls. Or put up with the interference caused by an overloaded network.
It is important to note that some devices may support VoLTE but may be incorrectly configured or that the option has not been activated. In this case, it’s important to review your device settings and make sure VoLTE is turned on so you can make voice calls without issue.
In addition, it must be taken into account that, even if the device is adapted, the company may not offer the service. In the case of Lowi, it will not take long to be present to appease the customer flight in the last two years and the continuous complaints of dropped calls.
@Punisheitor It will arrive very soon, for now we can only tell you that… 😏

However, even enabling LTE voice calls may not fix the issue either. There are many devices that, even being compatible with VoLTE, do not have the IMS parameters of Spanish operators. Therefore, even if Vodafone enables VoLTE on its lines, it will not be able to be used. In addition, it cannot be configured remotely, nor by Google update, it has to be the manufacturer of the phone that implements it in the ROM.
VoLTE coming soon
Although there is still no set date, from the operator’s Twitter they have commented in the last hours that the change will be made very soon. Maybe it’s a matter of days? Weeks? Lowi’s customers can’t handle the situation anymore. The accumulation of gigabytes from one month to the next is not enough, if you have to constantly call through the 2G network and internet consumption is cut off while. When the company implements voice service over LTE, customers will be able to make their normal calls.
It must be borne in mind that Lowi does not offer VoWiFi eitherTherefore, the only way to make calls is through the use of data, or with messaging apps. Although these services could improve the quality of service, it seems that the company has focused more on the use and consumption of data than on calls.
