VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE. VoLTE allows you to make and receive calls using your LTE data, with your existing Red Pocket phone number.
If you've got a VoLTE capable phone and are on the CDMA, GSMT or CDMAS networks, you may be able to use VoLTE with your Red Pocket service.
Note: Currently, Red Pocket does not offer VoLTE services on our GSMA network. VoLTE is only available on Androids on the GSMT network.
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about VoLTE:
Does VoLTE use my Red Pocket voice minutes and/or LTE data?
VoLTE will deduct your minutes at the same rate as regular calling, but will not deduct from your LTE data balance.
How do I know if my phone is compatible to use VoLTE on Red Pocket?
If your phone is capable of VoLTE calling, it will have the setting on it.
For Androids, this setting can typically be found in your Mobile Networks settings.
For iPhones, you will see the option in Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options.
For the GSMT network, Android VoLTE capable phones will be able to use this service.

Is WiFi calling different from VoLTE?
WiFi calling allows you to make and receive calls, and text messages, using a WiFi network, with your existing Red Pocket phone number.
