The Service Providers in the USA are undergoing a massive transition due to which all 2G/3G related services have been phased out.

This means that you will need to connect to the network with a VoLTE compatible device. The new generation of VoLTE technology offers you an enhanced experience with higher quality calls, the ability to browse the internet simultaneously while on a call, and heightened battery life.

In order to ensure you gain access to your VoLTE roaming, you will need to connect to AT&T USA and enable roaming data along with the VoLTE call option on your device.

This change will be in effect from July 1st 2022.

In the case that you do not have a VoLTE-compatible device, you will not be able to make or receive roaming calls in the USA.
