  • How to enable VOLTE on Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro ?

    T

    Answered By Thirugnanam Sehgal | 2 years ago

    VoLTE is enabled and you need not enable it on your new Android smartphone generally. You just need to insert the Jio (VoLTE enabled) SIM in any slot (preferably, the VoLTE supported 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. It is as simple as that.
