    It seems T-Mobile customers are wondering as well. https://www.howardforums.com/showthr...y-with-Verizon

    SF Bay Area here, no VoLTE as far as I know. VZ->T-MOBILE call quality still sounds bad.

    I think you meant to say "no HD Voice". VoLTE simply means the call is taking place while connected to an LTE signal.

    Agreed. I’m sorry but it’s almost June and frankly I can’t talk to people on T-Mobile. I just can’t understand what they’re saying. It’s nearly as bad as a landline.

    Agree 100%.

    Even though T-Mobile has 20% coverage for 5G in the US, if the phone calls are so bad you don’t even want to talk to people on that network it’s irrelevant.

    I mean, it's only my verizon line that sounds bad to T-Mobile users. I'm sure it's an issue with Verizon being obtuse, as my T-Mobile line has fine voice quality with AT&T, Sprint, USCC, and T-Mobile users, and in fact they use a higher bitrate VoLTE codec on their network than Verizon does, and T-Mobile to T-Mobile sounds better than anything my Verizon line has ever produced.

    Granted anything other than HD voice lacks that "you are there" quality, but nothing really sounds "terrible" on my cheap Moto phone. (Red Pocket CDMA with VoLTE/HD Voice) Even talking to my mom on her Verizon flip phone routed through a Panasonic "Link to Cell" is not too bad. T-Mobile non HD Voice calls don't sound bad either.

    Maybe it depends on the area???

    I fly all over the country for work, and my verizon line is by far the "lowest" bitrate of all the carriers.. certainly better than CDMA, but definitely not as HQ as AT&T and T-Mobile for me.

    I rarely use my Verizon line anymore though as the LTE is trash a lot of times when i'm around airports, and unlike AT&T they throttle my offline caching of media when i'm sitting at a gate with bad WiFi

    I've been getting AMR-WB between post paid T and pre paid and post paid thus and metro, with the confirmed number checkmark. Verizon to T has been amr-wb for a long time here in NYC area. T to T is now EVS 13.2 as long as the handset supports it.

    You sure about that because Reddit users have pointed out T-Mobile dropped their bitrate to the same as what Verizon and AT&T uses. https://www.reddit.com/r/tmobile/com...l_wificalling/

    All I know is that T-Mobile sounds light years better than verizon-verizon for me, even in the same phone as i use eSIM/Dual SIM

    Weird. I haven’t had a single complaint about Verizon voice quality ever since they started using VoLTE and I was able to get off their god awful CDMA network which was atrocious for voice quality. It often sounded like the other person had a pillow over their face when on CDMA calls!

    But seriously, I have no complaints whatsoever these days. Doesn’t matter if I’m talking to another Verizon customer, a T-mobile user, AT&T or landline. They all sound fine to me.

    My dad had the same complaint to me about the call quality coming from my Verizon line to his MetroPCS phone. He sounded fine to me, but I sounded worse than a call to an AT&T landline. He has since switched to a different network and no problems with the call quality. I have an uncle and brother on Metro and I've had no problems with them.

    I've only had cross carrier HD calling with AT&T; no problems thus far. Calls are worse than trash when he is not on the HD calling (network can be iffy in some rural parts of TX).

    Verizon uses EVS SWB 13.2Kbps codec. Tmobile uses the same bitrate. I had no problems with Verizon-Verizon. Maybe it's your phone.
