WHY? Why didn't they just start with VoLTE?
Re: WHY? Lots of technical issues apparently. 911, call handoffs, etc.
Re: WHY? They should probably get 100% of existing footprint to LTE before rolling out VoLTE. Might be difficult to do CDMA/VoLTE handoffs.
Unless VZW/Sprint plan to stay with CDMA forever, they'll eventually have to get to VoLTE. CDMA will still probably be around about another 10 years or so either way.
Handsets So does anyone know when compatible handsets are going to hit the market or if any current models can be updated to use VoLTE? I seem to recall at least one of them already being capable of doing it, but I can't recall which one.
said by ISurfTooMuch:From what I read, Any smartphone with LTE radios can be software updated to support VoLTE voice.

Re: Handsets That would make sense, since you're just talking about manipulating bits.
But I seriously doubt my Thunderbolt will get such an update, since it's getting a bit long in the tooth, but my upgrade date isn't until December, so I have time to see how things shake out.

Re: Handsets It will probably just be a very intergrated version of googlevoice. Better sound quality and seemless.
Verizon then can work at sunsetting CDMA and use that bandwidth for LTE.

old Funny thing is, they've had higher def voice in other countries for a few years now.. We are WAY behind on data and voice quality in this country with all the crony capitalism here.. True capitalism we'd have hi def along time ago and much higher or unlimited caps...
Guess we have to take the good with the bad
