As of now, tried Vodafone Volte in two circle and 3 cities but Volte is not working on my iPhone although the Circles(Gujrat and Delhi) have Volte and it is enabled for iPhone 7+. Soon, will update for one more Circle/City.
Interestingly, Vodafone Customer Care have no idea with regard to this and definitely has no solution as always.
