    I've had mine on and talking to people on other carriers and landlines I haven't had any issues nor have I had anyone complain from their end. Kind of baffled as to why some aren't and a lot are having issues.

    Usually I am not lucky with software upgrades, but on this one I must say I have not had one instance of hissing, dropped calls or voice problems since turning on advanced calling. Possibly because I am generally in very strong 4G areas.
    I sit next to a 4G LTE booster in my office building and have full bars at all times and it still acts up there. Based on my experience, signal strength has nothing to do with the issues. I think Verizon just launched VOLTE before it was really ready for prime time.

    I think you're right about signal strength. I'm constantly on mediocre 4G strength & have no issues with the sound. After the update, the volume *seems* louder but then, I had no problem with volume before the update either. I've not actually had a chance to use HD Voice with another compatible party yet but if it's even better that would be outstanding. Hard to understand why some are affected & not others - maybe the individual cell towers are in play?

    Consider yourself lucky. Even so, phone calls were acting up so I had to stop using it.
    Sorry about that my friend... Weird how some phones have a certain issue and others do not. You would think they would have the exact same issues... I would have to say it's because of apps that have been installed... But I'm no expert... But I do play one in TV! ;-)

    That's a good point... For some reason my couch is in a dead zone for 4G signal. Always end up moving from the couch if I make/take a call. As for the quality of the HD calling... So far it is unreal how clear it is. My daughter called my wife last night (she also has a turbo) with my phone. When she hung up she looked at me and said "that was weird... It was so clear. Almost like I was talking to Mom here in the living room".

    You are not alone, my friend. After the upgrade my call quality (at least with users who don't have HD calling) was abysmal. Worst call quality I've ever had on a cell phone. I turned it off almost immediately and noticed a slight difference (better). If Verizon doesn't fix it soon I'm going to look into returning the phone. You can't have a phone that has bad call quality. It defeats the purpose of the phone.

    I absolutely love the phone otherwise. Great specs, good camera, and excellent battery. Hoping they'll tweak the sound issue. Just curious, has anyone on here contacted Verizon about this issue?
