Our iOS customers have been asking for visual voicemail from Ultra—and now we have it! You can access visual voicemail via the voicemail tab on your dialer.

Wifi Calling & Text

Now you can talk over a WiFi network, which means you no longer have to rely on network coverage alone for your calling and texting needs. If you’ve got access to WiFi you’re good to go!

VoLTE

VoLTE (aka Voice Over LTE) lets you connect calls over the LTE network. That means better quality and faster connection times for your calls!

How It All Works

You must be an Ultra Mobile customer using an iPhone 5S or above and running iOS 12.0 or above to access the new network settings and features.

I'm currently using iOS 12.0 or higher

  • You may receive a notification on your iPhone to update you Carrier Settings
  • If you do not receive a notification, you can trigger it at any time by going to Settings > General > About
  • Once your Carrier Settings are updated, you will have access to the new features

I'm currently using an iOS older than 12.0

  • You must update your iOS to 12.0 (or higher if applicable)
  • Then trigger your Carrier Settings notification by going to Settings > General > About
  • Once your iOS and Carrier Settings are updated, you will have access to the new features

Okay, Then What?

Your data and MMS settings will kick in automatically, but you'll want to check that the following features are enabled and ready to go before using:

VISUAL VOICEMAIL

Your voicemails won’t immediately appear in your Visual Voicemail screen, even if you currently have messages in your inbox. They will appear once you get a new message, so we recommend you leave yourself a voicemail message after updating your Carrier Settings.

Wifi Calling & Text

You can enable WiFi Calling & Text by updating your phone settings. Just go to Settings > Phone > WiFi Calling

VoLTE Enabled Calling

You can enable VoLTE by updating your phone settings.
Just go to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > Voice Data
