HD Voice Support On Verizon Prepaid From Sept. 25
Verizon Wireless today officially announced that their prepaid customers will get access to VoLTE (Voice over LTE). HD Voice support on Verizon prepaid will be available starting Sunday, September 25, 2016. With this new feature, customers will get crystal clear sound. They will be able to make one-way or two-way video calls, six-way conference calls and Wi-Fi Calling. Customers will also be able to surf the Internet and talk at the same time.
Phones with HD Voice Support On Verizon Prepaid
With HD Voice, calls are routed over Verizon’s LTE network rather than 3G. In order to make calls over LTE, both handsets involved in the calling must be HD Voice-capable. Verizon notes that there are more than two dozen of newer iOS and Android smartphones with HD Voice support that prepaid customers can choose from. They are: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy J3 V, Moto Z Play Droid, Motorola Droid Maxx 2, Motorola Droid Turbo 2, HTC 10, HTC Desire 530, BlackBerry Priv, Microsoft Lumia 735, LG G5, LG V10, LG K8 V and LG K4 LTE.
In addition, customers must add HD Voice feature to their account before using it, which is free. Verizon also says that WiFi calls made to U.S. numbers are free but those made to foreign numbers are charged at international long distance rates.
A month ago, Verizon accidently revealed that their prepaid customers will receive support for HD Voice. They confirmed that revealing it so early was a mistake. However, some sources said that the feature won’t be available until the late October. Fortunately, Verizon prepaid customer won’t be waiting that long.
