How to update phone software & settings for 3G Shutdown


If your device is 4G and VoLTE capable, but you've received a notification about the 3G network closure, it likely means your device needs a software or settings update to function correctly after the shutdown. This includes being able to make emergency calls (000) on the 4G network.

To ensure seamless service, follow these steps:

  1. Check for software updates: Go to your device settings and look for available software updates from the manufacturer. Install any pending updates.
  2. Enable VoLTE: In your device settings, locate the option to enable "VoLTE" or "Voice over LTE" and turn it on. This allows voice calls over the 4G network.
  3. Update network settings: Some devices may require updating network settings to connect to the new 4G-only network properly. Consult your device manufacturer's website or contact their support for specific instructions.
  4. Restart your device: After applying updates and setting changes, restart your phone to ensure the new configurations take effect.

By taking these proactive measures, you'll be prepared for the 3G shutdown and can continue using your 4G device for voice calls and data without interruption.
