Nepal Telecom’s VoLTE is now available on iPhones. Initially, the service was not compatible with Apple devices when Ntc Volte launched back on May 17.
Although few Ntc users had VoLTE working on their iPhones, they witnessed an SMS issue while being on VoLTE.
NTC had reached out to Apple’s CEO Tim Cook via mail asking to resolve the issue. The CEO had forwarded this to a team of experts in response.
Thanks to the direct intervention of the Apple CEO, the resolution has arrived earlier than expected. Dilliram Adhikari, The Managing Director of NTC took to Twitter and announced VoLTE support on iPhones.
The state-owned Nepal Telecom launched VoLTE back in May with support for select handsets. Now the company is coordinating with phone makers, NTA, and other stakeholders to avail the high-quality Voice over LTE features to the maximum of NTC users.
Before the launch of VoLTE, NTC allowed only data over the fourth-gen network and while making calls, the network would fall back to either 3G or 2G. Now, with the launch of VoLTE, users can perform the next-gen voice calls on 4G without fall back to 3G or 2G.
Before going for activation, please note that your iPhone model should be above iPhone 6. So all the Apple phones from iPhone 6 to iPhone 12 series support the Ntc Volte service.
Similarly, you need to make sure that you have the latest iOS version on your phone. If not, then do update it to the latest one.
Check if your phone is above iPhone 6.
Update your iPhone to the latest iOS.
Put your phone in 4G/LTE mode.
