It’s automatic: Better sound quality on iPhone 6 and newer models with Verizon HD Voice; iOS 9.3 includes Wi-Fi Calling for those who need it

NEW YORK – Starting March 24th, customers choosing the iPhone 6, and all newer iOS models will experience crystal clear Verizon HD Voice right out of the box when calling other HD Voice enabled phones. From the very first phone call Verizon HD Voice is automatically switched on and ready to deliver significantly improved audio quality and less noise. In addition, the iPhone 6, 6S, Plus models and newer devices with iOS 9.3 will also have access to Wi-Fi Calling starting Monday, March 21st through a software update on America’s largest wireless HD Voice network. 

Verizon HD Voice delivers increased audio quality and clarity because calls are running on 4G LTE compared to standard voice calls. Verizon HD Voice calls are carried on the company’s award-winning network, ranked number one by RootMetrics for overall network performance across the United States for the past five testing periods.

In addition to calls that sound better, Verizon HD Voice offers additional features including 6-Way Calling, the ability to make calls over Wi-Fi from any known hotspot in the world and also to talk and surf the web simultaneously. All Wi-Fi calls made to U.S. phone numbers are free. Calls made to foreign numbers are billed at international long distance rates. 

Later this spring, Verizon HD Voice will be automatically provisioned on additional smartphones. Some Verizon HD Voice features can also be added to over 30 existing Android, iOS and Windows smartphones through a simple set-up process.
