The new features will not cost anything to subscribers of Verizon's prepaid services. But now U.S. carrier Verizon has announced that starting September 25, even those customers on prepaid accounts can actually have HD Voice, as long as the device they're using of course is compatible to the service. Quality and clarity are improved because it's using the 4G LTE network which they say is ranked number 1 by RootMetrics for overall network performance. The HD Voice service also covers video calls, Wi-Fi calls, 6-way calling as well as the ability to keep browsing the internet while talking on the phone. Just the other day, we told you that pre-paid carrier MetroPCS is selling limited quantities of the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
Though Verizon was the last of the major four wireless carriers to launch Wi-Fi calling for its postpaid customers, Sunday's launch will put it ahead of AT&T in offering VoLTE on prepaid.
Verizon's prepaid customers can now start making video calls over HD Voice as well by simply making one tap on the screen, they will also be able to make calls from any known Wi-Fi hotspot across the globe. Prepaid customers will be able to do this for free to US phone numbers, which means that if you are roaming and you call home, you could do so for free on a compatible network.
Verizon announced today that they are brining their HD Voice service and capabilities to prepaid customers who have smartphones that support the service.
