VoLTE on Asus Zenfone 8

I bought this Asus phone on the weekend, knowing in advance that VoLTE was not supported. I was under time constraints to replace my dying phone and I chose this one.

 

My question is, do phones get VoLTE support through work done by the phone manufacturer, the carriers, or both? Updates on this phone indicate other countries are getting support, so I wonder if we'll get it here.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Both. The manufacturer has to make sure that the hardware and firmware supports VoLTE (including the carrier settings).

 

The carrier has to authorise the use of the tech. In reality, as the 3G network is going to be shut down in 2024, this carrier authorisation is a bit out of step with what is now a mature and mainstream technology.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
