    Did you add advanced calling to your Verizon plan? I think it is necessary for volte to work.

    yes but occasionally the phone freezes while using it. Several times I couldn't disconnect a call because the screen was off and nothing was turning it on. I had to reboot.

    In my experience, it works only when there's usable LTE signal. For instance, if you initiated a call in LTE and walk to an area where LTE drops and the phone transitions to 4G/3G, the call would drop.

    Yes. Works perfectly. Make sure advanced calling is enabled on your account.

    It wasn't working for me this morning, I had to enable LTE as data only because when it was on voice & data, it wasn't sending any text messages. I had to call Verizon, they tried but couldn't help me. Now LTE voice & data works fine.

    Verizon confirmed my finding:

    From IPhone 6 Models Offer New — But Still Immature — Calling Feature
    I would personally leave the feature off until your carrier completes migrating all the towers to LTE (T-Mobile expects to complete this sometime next year).

    I have a question....does using this feature count against your data? If so, why is this a good feature? Don't most of us have unlimited talking but limited data??

    UPDATE: Never mind....the article answered my question. It doesn't count against your data....yet.

    Verizon's FAQ is usually a good resource for things of that nature: http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/faqs/WirelessService/AdvancedCalling.html

    I believe Verizon's LTE rollout is complete at this point. The only times you should still get a 3G or 2G signal are: Very weak signal (different frequencies used for the different technologies may mean in some areas you can only pick up one of them,) when you're connecting to a picocell (Subways, large shipping malls, etc,) or when you're roaming onto another provider's network (your network identifier should change to "roaming" when this happens.)

    Thanks for the resource! So from this document it seems to use it you have to give up Caller Name ID??

    "The following features are considered incompatible with Advanced Calling 1.0 at this time:

    Ringback Tones
    Caller Name ID
    Company Name ID"
