    Default Will VoLTE use data? Answer: Yes, but its optional.

    Yes, you will use your data, but you can also choose stand phone call model that we have now, which will not cost your data usage. You will have an option to answer or make a phone call to use VoLTE on your phone at the end of this year.

    There's no way VoLTE will use data out of your data bucket.

    No one knows until the carriers say something.

    And even if it does, they can always choose not to count it against you (Assuming they have a way to differentiate between data and voice).

    Exactly. They really could go either way with it.

    My guess, from a consumer/marketing standpoint, is the carriers may be better off counting things as they are now and keeping the voice data separate from the rest and tracked as minutes like we're used to. It shouldn't be too hard to do this either.

    If it were all in one bucket, like a 10 GB all inclusive plan, no one is going to want to try converting a minute of talk time in to the amount of data it takes and then figure how that plays into the data allotment. Even if counted separate, you still have the minute/data conversion issue and advertising "5 GB of talk time" just sounds silly. So I think they will do all the converting internally and present talk time as minutes used/available to the end user. It just keeps things simple and easy for the consumer.

    MMS data is currently not counted against your data quota. I can get MMS messages on a dumb feature phone without a data plan, and it works fine with no additional charges. Verizon will absolutely be able to know what is the VoLTE traffic, so they can prioritize it properly, just like cable VoIP providers such as Comcast prioritize their phone traffic. So they can continue to bill by the minute and not count it against your data quota, if that is what they want to do.

    Oh yeah... It's not a question of... "can they tell what's voice and what's not?"

    It's...

    Will the decide to just sell data plans and that'd all your phones usage... OR..... Will they allow unlimited talk and still count data usage against your data...


    That is what no one knows until we get some hard evidence. It's just basically us guessing at this point... The original poster sounded like he had some information on this or he knew.. But hasn't provided a source so I can't really believe him.
