April 15: Ncell, a leading private sector telecommunication company operating in Nepal, has announced the launch of Ncell Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) service for its customers who use iPhone.
The company made such announcement on the occasion of the Nepali New Year.
Issuing a recent statement, Ncell said that the company has now made this service available on the iOS platform after the successful launch of VoLTE on Android earlier in 2022
According to Ncell, VoLTE is a new technology that provides superior quality high-definition (HD) voice calls along with almost instant call connection.
With VoLTE service, voice calls can be made on the 4G network, using the data service at normal voice tariff, added the statement.
Ncell said that the customers upgrading to VoLTE service will receive 100 minutes on-net VoLTE talk time valid for 28 days.
“Subscribers who are using iPhone 8 series and above are eligible for VoLTE upgrade. Eligible iPhone users can dial *17201# to activate VoLTE and get free talk time.”
There is also one more scheme for iPhone users in Ncell network, said Ncell.
Under this scheme, customers can receive 2GB bonus data valid for 7 days for upgrading from physical SIM to eSIM free of charge. This bonus data is applicable to Ncell users who have purchased the device from Nepal’s authorized Apple outlets only.
Eligible iPhone users can dial 17125 for more information on upgrading eSIM, or they can simply type citizenship number, email ID and send SMS to 17125.
“Your physical SIM will be upgraded to eSIM post verification. Non-Ncell users can visit nearest Ncell centre to get a new Ncell eSIM free of charge.”
Customers can use Ncell VoLTE service all over Nepal where Ncell 4G network is available. To enjoy the service, customers will need to turn on their 4G setting in their eligible handsets, said the statement.
