VoLTE support for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is reportedly coming soon

Freedom Mobile

Canadian regional carrier Freedom Mobile used an August 20th, 2018 tweet to announce that voice over LTE (VoLTE) service is now rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices.

According to the same tweet, VoLTE support for “more devices,” including this year’s Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones, is coming soon.

VoLTE will also roll out to the Samsung Galaxy A8.

Freedom launched its VoLTE network earlier this month, announcing support for LG’s G6 and G7 ThinQ devices at the same time.

Freedom Mobile has an entire support page dedicated to setting up VoLTE on compatible devices.

Enabling VoLTE is as simple as navigating to your device’s settings app, searching for VoLTE, and checking to make sure that the VoLTE toggle is activated.

Freedom also recommends manually restarting devices after enabling VoLTE.

As the name implies, VoLTE enables devices to field calls using LTE networks, rather than traditional 3G networks.
