  • How to enable VOLTE on Samsung Galaxy M30 ?

    M

    Answered By Manisha Rao | 1 years ago

    You don't need to enable VoLTE. Insert the Jio (VoLTE enabled) in any slot. By default, VoLTE will be active. If it is not, you can change the network preferences from Network option in settings.


    1. Go to Settings > Call Settings (Sim and Network)
    2. Tap Cellular networks > Enable Voice over LTE On/ Off.

    Alternatively, you can follow a much easier way:


    1. You can simply dial *#*#4636#*#* 
    2. Choose Phone information.
    3. Click " Phone Information" and Toggle VOLTE Provisioned.
    4. Restart the phone and you are done.

    Answered By Krithika Khan | 1 years ago

    Yes, Samsung Galaxy M30 supports OTG. USB OTG or USB On-The-Go is one of the most recent technologies that allows you to connect your pen drives and in some cases hard disks to your smartphones and tablets. It has a cable and through that cable, you can directly view and use your pen drive in your smartphones.
