BT Mobile


[link to this post]
 
Moved over to BT mobile 3 weeks ago and I am very impressed. One thing I have noticed though, when calling my mates on EE is the call is never a HD voice one.

I've got strong 3G coverage, so have they. Tried it in many areas.

Do BT not have access to HD voice then on EE?

Yeah, they have access to HD Voice, I always get that on my S4 on 3G. Quite a marked difference in call quality when it drops down to 2G though lol

I have a work Lumia 520 on EE so tried a test call yesterday and on the second call, HD voice kicked in.

Just a shame it doesn't seem to be every call like when I was on 3.

To be fair, on Three the phone wouldn't have dropped back to 2G and thus lost the HD voice. I think perhaps the biggest issue is that HD voice isn't cross network yet :/

I don't even know what HD voice on a mobile is.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Easiest way to think of it is like using Skype when both callers use headsets. That sort of call quality and clarity, just over the mobile network.

Very true, saying that I know for a fact my one friend would have had strong 3G like I did.

Are you on O2 Robertos??

Same quality as FaceTime audio but using normal phone calls. Currently you have to be on the same network and both in a 3G coverage and not drop down to 2G whilst in the call.

Not all handsets support. iPhones from 5 onwards so.

All UK networks ( EE, 3, Vodafone and O2 ) now support but EE was first when orange, and O2 was very recently.

Hope is that with 4G voice calling the networks will inter operate.

LOL smile.

I know even less about either aspect of that. At least I use a mobile smile.
