How to avail Airtel Nokia VoLTE offer
To avail this VoLTE service on Nokia device, you will have to get a 4G SIM or upgrade your existing connection to 4G from the nearest service center.
You will just have to insert the Airtel 4G Sim in the slot with data capability and select the 4G/3G/2G (Auto) as the preferred network mode. Once you do this just enable VoLTE service by going Settings -> Mobile Network -> Turn on VoLTE call. All the Nokia users will see “HD/VoLTE” icon on the top bar of the screen. Which indicates that their phone is ready for VoLTE calls.
Even you have VoLTE service, but the connectivity depends on which area you are in. In case the 4G network coverage isn’t available, VoLTE calls automatically fall back on the 3G/2G network so that users stay connected.
