    I want to add this feature but I am wondering if there are issues created by this technology.

    Also, I have a UDP and upgraded using the Best Buy method. Changing this feature will have no impact on my plan, right?

    I appreciate the reply. I am going to wait on enabling it for one reason. Nobody else that I talk to has a phone capable of advanced calling right now. I literally only can think of one person with an iPhone 6 and one with an S5 that I know have Verizon. Neither of these people do I ever talk to on the phone.

    On second thought I might just enable it anyways. Eventually the people I talk to will start to have it.

    Totally useless, UNLESS all of your contacts are on Verizon AND they all have SMartphones that can use it.

    I turned the damn thing off.

    Yes but when my wife gets a new phone it will be totally useful since 75% of my phone calls are her (lots of short calls at work but I won't count that).

    My wife hates telephones, refuses to use them unless our son calls from somewhere on the other side of the world.

    Her phone is a 1x box

    Lucky. My wife calls me all of the time and it's usually for stuff she could have text me about lol. We both have S5s and I've noticed the difference in call quality. I like the new feature.

    I can't answer the latter part of your question.. But as far as the HD voice.. It is totally amazing.. the difference in quality is very impressive and very noticeable. As long as you have a good 4G-LTE signal it works great. Unfortunately I have Verizon as my carrier and if I move into a weak 4G area and my phone falls back to 3G, the call will drop unlike T-Mobile where it will auto adjust the call and you keep on talking.

    Plus T-Mobile offers calls over WiFi and unlimited data. I will be moving to T-Mobile sooner than later.. Will have to get a new S5 but that's ok. Wish I had known about all this before I went with Verizon..

    I turned it off. I tried talking with a couple people who DID NOT have it. No noticeable difference in quality. Also they complained my voice sounded choppy. So that was my experience.

    Do you think that the advanced calling feature made your call quality worse when you had a regular connection? I would think regular calls would be unaffected but also value your personal experience.

    Yes, regular calls were made much worse. There was a constant white "hissing" noise when the caller on the other end talked. Made for a very annoying conversation. I disabled it and the noise went away.

    This is an interesting discussion. I wonder why regular calls are affected?

    Can anyone else report any negative results?

    I'd like to know too and I've seen one other person mention it on Android Central. I've enabled it again and its hissing so I once again turned it off.

    I had no change in regular phone calls. I normally don't talk on the phone much but have had to talk on the phone more lately and have had no complaints from the people on the other end. Hope you can get yours working right

    The issue is I hear the hissing, not them. I disabled it though and could care less considering if you lose 4G you also lose the call.

    Ah ok. Yeah I don't hear that. And 4G is solid in my area. It never drops unless I'm in the basement at the hospital.

    I set up advanced calling tonight. I called my wife when I was leaving work and she commented that she thought I had a call coming in on the other line because I cut out for a second like I had a beep. She knew nothing of me changing call settings. She sounded fine from my end. I must agree that call quality seems to suffer when not using the HD calling feature.

    If you go into your contacts there will be a group called "Video". This group will consist of every one of your contacts that has VoLTE enabled with Verizon. My list initially had most of my contacts in it but as the phone checked with Verizons servers the list quickly dwindled down to just myself. Apparently I have zero friends or coworkers who have enabled advanced calling.

    In the end I have disabled the feature but I am positive that once Verizon gets the bugs out I will be using it again. I live in a market that has some of the best LTE coverage in the country. We are a test market and are always the first to so new features like xlte.

    VoLTE is already available. It's just not available on the Moto X until a software update comes for that phone.

    Um, what? I find that hard to believe. Every Android phone I've ever used allowed Talk+Data at the same time while on LTE. Some phones, such as the Droid line, even did it on 3G. Why wouldn't the X?

    In fact, the only phone I've "tried" that didn't allow this was the iPhone 5.

    Sadly, it's true. No voice + data on the Moto X 2nd Gen yet.

    Unbelievable, that's a huge step backwards if you ask me. I would never buy a phone knowing that and if I found out later I'd return it.

    That's just unacceptable. I ran a Google search and found out the feature won't work until an update arrives to enable Advanced Calling 1.0. Considering the poor call quality to non-LTE devices I've experienced on the S5, I would prefer not to be forced to use the feature.

    The worst part about this is that it appears the Moto X (2014) won't be the only device to do this. Future Verizon devices look to follow suite which should have everyone up in anger. Especially considering if you leave an LTE area the call drops!

    Agreed, can't believe the users are being forced to do without a feature that's become a standard. It's this plus the water resistance of the S5 that will change my decision to get the new X. It's too bad -I love what Moto is doing with their devices.

    Agreed. Maybe the Droid Turbo on Verizon will break the trend. If not, I'm looking at a Note 4 or maybe an HTC One M9.
