Are you excited for this feature? Don't care? Who really makes calls anymore anyways?
The Verge: Verizon announces initial rollout of VoLTE, HD voice for the 'coming weeks' http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwl6Odsx8
Saw that today, and my only response is... WTF? only works for verizon to verizon calls??? The call quality on verizon sucks big time - the bit-starved vocoder that they use is atrocious. Dare I say it, AMPS had better sound quality than the crap Verizon uses now. I have been hoping that the VoLTE would bring them at least on par with GSM call quality, but limiting it to only other verizon cellular customers is a joke. This may get the iphone uses all wet, hoping to surf and take a call simultaneously, but for most, it will turn out to be more fluff than substance....
