    hello everyone,

    this is my second OnePlus phone, I had the OnePlus 6t and now the 7t McLaren edition. both are just extra ordinary phones, however the only downside to it is the VoLTE where OnePlus and the carriers in UAE are not in any partnership which unfortunately leaves OnePlus users in UAE without VoLTE.
    I tried several ways to do activate it but with no success.

    downloaded the Qualcomm software and changed the settings in the advanced PDC yet nothing happened.

    used *#800# and activated the VoLTE and it only activated the toggle button but it is not activated.

    I checked in *#*#4636#*#* and went to IMS info and I have nothing activated (as seen in the attachment)

    which brings me back to my first point why OnePlus is not partnering with UAE carriers even though they have an office in Dubai and service centers, it should be one of the things which OnePlus Dubai region should look more into.

    if anyone is facing the same issue or managed to fix it, I would appreciate your help, or just put down your comments or experience with this issue


    P.S. again OnePlus is just the best despite the VoLTE

    yeah I wish I could find a solution, I have grown fedup from all the trials I did, even when I had before that my OnePlus 6T I was going crazy to try and manage to do it but with no success at all.

    I ended up believing it is all in the hands of the ISP to allow VoLTE for OnePlus devices, because OPPO, Redmi and Xiaomi have VoLTE on their flagship devices with Etisalat. so this means OnePlus should make a deal with Etisalat and DU.

    so hopefully one day they will.

    I don't think VoLTE will be available from the carriers in UAE as voice calling would be of no use as only data will be used.

    So the mobile manufacturers have nothing to do with the carriers, nor can the cut a deal with them. We will get VoLTE only when Du and Etisalat wants to.

    realme phone is listed in etisalat and I'm sure OnePlus is by far much more famous and recognized in UAE so I believe it has something to do with the manufacturer.
    I'm talking in terms of the manufacturer collaborating or working closely with the ISP to have it work.
    I have friends who work in Samsung and this is how Samsung got VoLTE working in UAE. it is just my thoughts, end of the day this is a technology that has been there for a while and it is about time for it to be accessable to all phones that existed at least the past 2 to 3 years.
