    Thus far, LTE has been thought of as data only since data is the core of LTE service. This means carriers have needed to use other options to add voice.

    We thought voice wasn't in Verizon's LTE plans, but we were wrong.

    The LG Revolution (pictured above) will be Verizon's first VoLTE device when it is released mid-year. It steps into the 4G voice realm with higher sound quality than traditional cellular and land-line calls, and when out of range of LTE, the device will fall back to CDMA so you'll never lose your voice calls.

    This is just a small step towards something big. It will probably be years before LTE voice is a standard but everything starts somewhere.

    Look for more on this at MWC next week!

    What do you think of this new tech?
    How long do you guys think it will be before LTE Voice is all over the grid?

    Higher sound quality than landline? Wow, that is a pretty big deal. Get me a bluetooth speaker box to go with!

    Of course, the CAPABILITY for better sound won't matter much if the voice guts on the phone itself stinks.

    LG Revolution will not have VOLTE when it is released.

    "That phone, LG's Revolution 4G, will not have the service installed when it comes out by midyear, Higgins said Tuesday. (A previous version of this report incorrectly said the Revolution will include VoLTE when it launches. The service should be available by next year, Verizon Wireless spokesman Jeffrey Nelson said Tuesday.)"

    Who cares this phone will be old tech by the time it's released anyways. Would have been something to consider if it had the Tegra 2 but they dropped the ball on this one.
