So I understand for LTE the unlocked phone needs to support the Rogers LTE Frequencies, which I have. But is there any other requirements when it comes to VoLTE? Is as long as the phone supports the LTE bands, and VoLTE it will work, or is there some other "magic"?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I think Rogers is rolling this out for specific devices only. In other words, you need a |Rogers-approved VoLTE device. I suspect their doing it this way to ensure it's working well and folks are getting what they expect from it. No one else even offers VoLTE yet to my knowledge.
Well no one else in Canada, yet. But europe has had it for a couple years now and the USA started it on multiple carriers well over a year ago. Rogers launched for the LG phone in March 2015, Galaxy S6 shortly after and for the newly launched (at the time) iPhone 6S and 6S Plus in October 2015. no new phones have been added to this list yet. I suspect if they dont update their carrier settings for iPhone 6/6Plus by the time the iPhone 7 launches then us iphone 6/6Plus users will be left with Devices not able to do it ever (why work on carrier settings for a two year old device?), at least on the Rogers Network. Unlock them sell them to an American and no problem.
