iPhone user with the updated ios14 on skinny mobile.

When updating to iOS 14 it forced a carrier setting update as well which is normal but what I’ve noticed is when making a normal voice call (not FaceTime audio) with full 4G reception it switches to 3G to make the call. As soon as the call is over, it switches back to 4G.

Now I’ve tried this in 3 separate locations in Auckland and every time it switched to 3G.

My iPhone mobile settings under mobile data for voice and date is 4G.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there something i’m missing?

Wasn’t like this under iOS 13 and I just didn’t notice?

It has nothing to do with iOS 14, it has always been that way. 4G networks do not support voice unless VoLTE is activated, so the phone drops back to 3G for the voice call.

As above you need to wait for VoLTE to be enabled for Skinny customers before you can use VoLTE

Thanks. Is it something in the pipeline for them? Does spark have it enabled?

Do you mean on the phone, or at the network end? I had to manually enable it on my phone but it continued to drop to 3G when making calls.

Network end. It should not be falling back to 3G.

Assume you mean only for rural customers, as it's not available for all Skinny customers yet
