In this tutorial, we will learn how to turn off HD calling on an Android device. HD calling, also known as VoLTE (Voice over LTE), allows for high-quality voice calls over the 4G network.
While this feature can enhance your call experience, some users may prefer to disable it for various reasons. Follow the steps below to disable HD calling on your Android device.
Step 1: Access Phone Settings
To begin, open the Settings app on your Android device. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping the gear icon in the top-right corner.
Step 2: Locate Call Settings
In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Call settings.” This option may be labeled differently on different devices, such as “Phone” or “Call.”
Step 3: Disable HD Calling
Within the Call settings menu, locate and tap on “Advanced” or “Advanced Calling.” Again, the wording may vary depending on your device.
Option 1: Disable HD Voice Calling
Some Android devices provide a specific toggle to disable HD voice calling. Look for an option like “Enable VoLTE” or “HD Voice Calling” and turn it off. This will effectively disable HD calling on your device.
Option 2: Change Preferred Network Type
If you don’t find a dedicated toggle for HD calling, you can try changing your preferred network type to disable it. Tap on “Preferred network type” or a similar option within the Advanced settings menu.
- 4G/LTE: This option enables both data and voice calls over LTE networks.
- 3G: This option restricts your device to 3G networks, disabling HD calling.
- 2G: This option restricts your device to 2G networks, also disabling HD calling.
Choose either the “3G” or “2G” option to disable HD calling. Keep in mind that selecting a lower network type may affect your data speeds and call quality.
Step 4: Save Changes
After disabling HD calling using either Option 1 or Option 2, navigate back to the main Settings menu or exit the Phone settings. Your changes will be automatically saved.
By following these simple steps, you can easily turn off HD calling on your Android device. Whether you prefer a traditional voice call experience or have specific network requirements, disabling HD calling is now at your fingertips.
Remember that the exact steps and options may vary depending on your device’s manufacturer and Android version.
