Your Phone is Showing No Cellular Signal?
Turning your phone off and then back on or selecting the Restart option will sometimes resolve this. If this doesn't resolve it, we will often recommend re-installing the SIM card as a second step to try. If you need assistance with this, we are happy to help you do this when you bring your phone in-store.
What is VoLTE?
VoLTE is Voice over LTE. A VoLTE capable device allows your device to make calls over a LTE network instead of the 3G network. This provides a higher quality signal which can improve clarity as well as allow your phone to continue to use the LTE network instead of the 3G network for data during a call. This means you will get faster data speeds while talking on a VoLTE call, which is especially useful if you are multi-tasking. Also, it is worth noting that VoLTE will be serving as a replacement for calling over 3G and will eventually replace the 3G calling network. This is currently happening with many USA based carriers throughout 2022, so we recommend making sure you have a VoLTE capable device to ensure you can use all the carrier networks in the USA.
What is VoWIFI?
VoWiFi is Voice over Wi-Fi VoWiFi allows you to make calls over Wi-Fi if you have poor cell signal. This feature is available on most current iPhones and is coming to more devices as they become capable of using this feature. VoWiFi is incredibly useful if you are in a location with a poor Cellular Signal that happens to have a strong Wi-Fi connection. This could be in a rural location with a good internet connection or a large metal covered building such as a rink that the cellular signal just doesn't get through very well. Using VoWiFi in these situations will allow your phone to more reliably make phone calls without having to go search for a strong cell signal. You will have to ensure you Enable VoWiFi on your device as there is some information required to assist 1st Responders as these VoWiFi calls don't provide the same information to 911 as compared to a standard 3G or VoLTE call.
