old3eyes: Does Vodafone plan to do VoLTE??


A VoLTE standard hasn't even been widely agreed around the world, so I wouldn't expect VoLTE any time soon (from any carrier).


Verizon  in the US is doing it next year..  In theory any SIP client that can do codec G722 can do VoLTE..

Voice over LTE you speak of, We use 3G to carry Voice.
We use 3G to carry voice still, Would be good to have VoLTE as a world wide standard and have high quality calls over that standard.

coffeebaron: Why was it locked out in the first place?


A very good question, to which the only conclusiong I can come to is to discourage switching networks if another carrier was quicker to market. As far as I'm aware, there is no technical reason to disable it in firmware, as if the network doesn't support it, it's not like it will have any negative impact, it simply wont be used.


As far as I'm aware, the way AMR-WB works in Samsung's devices is similar to several other network & region-specific features in that it's disabled by default, & specifically enabled for set network operator profiles (Which are set on first boot via the CSC files depending on which SIM is inserted at that time). So the operator has to have specifically requested Samsung enable the feature on their operator profile for this region/for each device for it to be active.

Why it's disabled by default, I'm not sure (Power saving? Prevent user confusion? Allow for operator certification first? Have to ask Samsung that one). Hence I'm guessing it's possible that future software updates will enable the feature. For which devices, I'm not sure. They will of course need testing as well.

I have my N9, E72 and S3 that all support AMR-WB, but all have it disabled in the firmware. It's up to the operator to request this to enabled in their specific firmware for it to work.

It's at the handset level, so each manufacturer (and potentially each handset) will have a different way of accessing the information. The official Vodafone software for the Xperia Z does have this enabled, as will all the devices listed on the HD Voice page.

I'll do some digging & see what I can find out for you - not sure if it's specifically disabled in open market Sony devices. Which software build is running on your Z, & where did you get it from? Assuming the Nexus 4 is on the latest 4.3 build?

EDIT: Nexus 4 is a yes.

Thanks
Yea I am aware that Nexus 4 is HD Voice capable but I think carrier needs to enable this for that particular firmware version as well?

The Xperia Z beongs to my wife, it's a white C6603 (only blacks are sold in NZ) from HK, running 4.2.2. I can try flashing it with a Vodafone NZ Firmware if there is one :)

My N4 is runing on 4.3.

So far I don't think HD Voice is enabled during phone calls between these two handsets.

All Nexus 4s should be running the same build since the updates are pushed from Google; they're not modified by local operators at all, so there's nothing to enable.

There should be a Vodafone NZ build for the Z, unsure where one might find that though as I've not had a Sony device as my daily driver long enough to tinker. Tried checking through the service menus to see if there's anything about AMR-WB?

Service menu in Xperia Z doesn't show AMR-WB as far as I am aware.
I might need to download VodafoneNZ firmware the hard way :)

Just got my Nexus 5 today, still not sure whether HD Voice is enabled or not.
It will be awesome if Vodafone can setup a free service no. to check if the user's handset is HD voice enabled and maybe do some kind of comparison with standard codec?
