    On Verizon's volte it seems that if u are on a call and go from 4g to 3g it will drop. If you don't use volte then the call won't drop but u lose the internet while on phone if you have one antenna in your android phone. Is there any app that toggle volte on and off easily or fixes this issue?

    If you call a non volte phone from volte someone told me it doesn't use LTE and won't drop when going to 3g is this true?

    This is what they told us during the beta test last year: if VoLTE is turned to ON on your phone and the call starts in a 4G / LTE area it does not matter who the recipient is...if your phone moves to a 3G area during that call it will drop. I don't know of any way to change it because its their network, it cannot switch a VoLTE call to 1X during the call, it just drops. The only workaround we were told was to not use VoLTE in areas with weak 4G signal. Things may have changed since October, but I kind of doubt it.

    You can look at the app called Anycut. It will allow you to make a shortcut of pretty much anything in your settings app. So if you know you are in an area where a dropped call might happen due to the handout then you could toggle it on/off or vice-versa.

    This was why I never enabled VoLTE...man, I would have been upset since the signal is weak in my house at dropping calls and not understanding why. Kind of irritates me, but calls are fine normally and I have wifi at home.

    I talked to Verizon support and all they said was volte was a new technology and all the bugs aren't worked out also they said volte Calls to non volte phones ie land Lines or 3g phones would have more drop offs as well . what happened to Verizon's catch phrase "can you hear me now " on volte not so much. I keep it on so I can do the internet while on phone but I liked old phones with 2 antenas better so they could seemlesly use both 3g and 4g and internet with no drop offs I hope they can make this more seamless

    Is there a way to make the volte call go over WiFi in bad areas as a work around. I had issues on WiFi as well but don't know if the call was using LTE or WiFi when it dropped. It would be nice to have it use WiFi if the WiFi connection was better and LTE if that was better and do it seemlessly

    If VoLTE is turned to ON on your phone, your phone will always use the VoLTE network to make calls. You can't make it use WiFi or 1X or anything else if VoLTE is turned on. I turner it off after the beta test because I work in an area with spotty 4G, so......dropped calls. And it is a big battery drain. You can't help the dropped calls either. The Verizon network just can't switch a call from the VoLTE network back to the normal cell network.

    When all the 3g towers are gone won't all calls be LTE? Or will calls go over 1g? Or 4g ? How can I tell it drains the battery does it show separately in battery drain percent or did I test it on and off and compare

    If VoLTE is OFF your phone makes the call using the cell antenna (1x I believe) so you don't need 3G, 4G, or any G to make a normal everyday call. Just like flip phones with no data connection. But....once you turn VoLTE to ON you are telling your phone to use the 4G antenna to make the call and not the normal cell antenna. So once that call starts on 4G and the phone loses the 4G signal....call drops. Just like if you unplug a home phone from the wall jack in the middle of a call.
