T-Mobile deploys VoLTE software to Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S5

If you're in one of T-Mobile's newly announced VoLTE markets, the un-carrier network is starting to deploy a software update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 phones starting today. This will allow you to have a better, clearer voice experience while gabbing on your phones.

"Beginning June 19 after 5 p.m. PST the Samsung Galaxy S 5 will have a software update to Android 4.4.2/Baseband G900TUVU1BNF6 that turn on VoLTE services via OTA over Wi-Fi in available VoLTE markets only," T-Mobile said while not giving an exact time for the Note 3's over-the-air update.

For owners of these devices who are not in a VoLTE market, T-Mobile said that the update will be available via Samsung's Kies software starting tomorrow, June 20.

In addition to the Note 3 and Galaxy S5, it looks like LG's G Flex was also given the VoLTE software update treatment last month on May 22.
