I am not getting VoLTE on my Airtel number, even in my home circle. My phone is VoLTE supported. But the Airtel Volte beta website says, Volte services are not activated on your number. Plzz tell me…how can i enable it?….or is there any manual APN via which we can enable it?

2 Options :

1) Contact Customer Care and ask them about this because I’ve relatives in your circle and they’ve VoLTE activated with them.

2) There is an APN setting, Akhikesh Kr Shukla knows about it, either you should ask from him or search on YouTube. He has made a video about how to activate regarding the same.

Why will anybody take this ?

2.17 times the lowest plan of 35 just for a ratecutter.

Also be sure Airtel will gradually remove 35 and force users to get something like 55/60, making it look like a profit.

Love Airtel

Rs 100 should be the minimum charge to have service per month.
