Verizon begins deploying VoLTE to select Android phones

Ahead of the iPhone 6 launch with support for VoLTE, Verizon Wireless has upgraded its network to support voice calls over its 4G LTE and XLTE network. Dubbed Advanced Calling 1.0, Verizon is now supporting HD Voice and Video Calling and the carrier is starting the roll out initially to the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy S5.

With Advanced Calling 1.0, even though voice calls are routed as data, you'd still be billed for a voice call, which would go against either your unlimited voice plan or your voice minutes. Video calls will go against your data bucket on Verizon.

For compatibility, both the caller and the recipient must have compatible devices and have Advanced Calling 1.0 enabled on your phone.

Have you gotten the software update on the G2 or S5 yet? Let us know.
