    RedPocket Verizon VoLTE, WiFi calling

    Does RedPocket’s Verizon service have VoLTE and/ or WiFi calling and hotspot capabilities?

    No VoLTE or WiFi calling yet. Hotspot isn't actively blocked, but if you're using a Vzw branded phone, the built-in hotspot app won't work.

    My wife has RedPocket Verizon service with her iPhone. VoLTE is working as of yesterday. Shocked me, first time I had noticed it.

    Is there a hotspot app that works?

    Is VoLTE still working on her iPhone? I activated RedPocket Verizon service on my iPhone yesterday. When I try to change the "Enable LTE" option from "Data Only" to "Voice & Data", my iPhone says "Cannot Activate LTE Calls. To enable LTE calls on this account, contact Verizon".

    Nope, it stopped working shortly (a few weeks) after I posted that comment and never returned. She’s still using RP and the same iPhone, but still no carrier updates.

    Contact Red Pocket CS. They were able to enable 'Voice & Data' option for LTE on my iPhone.

    Unrelated to topic, but asking since you have an iPhone. Do you have any profiles installed in Settings -> General -> Profile ?

    Why don't they just enable it by default? Does it cost them money?

    Thanks mysbca. Wrote to their customer service. They asked for last 4 digits of SIM and did their magic. I'm now able to to set 'Enable LTE' to 'Voice & Data'

    barryspar, I'm not sure why they don't enable it by default. From my email to them it seemed like they needed to confirm the device was Verizon certified.

    We have checked <my_redpocket_number>. We are pleased to inform you that VoLTE service is available as long as the devices are Verizon certified and 4G / LTE. Before we can proceed, please provide us the last four digits of your *SIM ICCID for verification purposes.

    Where Time=money, probably yes. I suspect that they have to send something to Verizon for that phone. With Boom Mobile, I had to fill out an online phone with SIM number, phone model, and ESN?
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    I had them enable it on 2 of my phone's. Done with CS chat. Motorola G5 plus unlocked and a Verizon Galaxy S7. Both on Red Pocket Verizon.
