Airtel’s VoLTE (Voice over LTE) network is now official and it is the advanced service from Bharti Airtel. Airtel VoLTE users will experience true HD voice. Airtel customers with VoLTE services can experience superior call quality and faster call setup time compared to normal voice calls. While we are writing this, the Airtel VoLTE is available only in a few places. One of the first phones that Airtel launched in partnership with a brand was the Karbonn A40 Indian, which is well compatible with the network and the phone was launched with a special plan for the users.

Just like how the case was with Reliance Jio when it launched its 4G VoLTE services, not every phone supports the VoLTE network and thus, you need to check whether a phone is compatible with it before choosing the phone for future. Even if you are not going to use the Airtel VoLTE network right away, it is always better to have a future proof phone so you don’t have to keep changing them regularly.

If you are not sure if you have a VoLTE compatible phone already, you need to verify that by going to the Mobile Data settings and checking if the phone has the option to enable both Voice and Data. If it was only a 4G phone and doesn’t have VoLTE support, it will not show the voice option. In the list below, we mention the phones that are compatible with the VoLTE network of Airtel.

If you are wishing to use the VoLTE network, you should use that Airtel SIM on the first slot of your smartphone.

    I think like Jio, all phones with VoLTE support will support Airtel VoLTE services as with the Jio initially!
