Though we all know that most Xiaomi smartphones come with VoLTE (voice over LTE) enabled, but some old devices like Xiaomi Mi4i do not have this feature or disabled it. However, there is a workaround to allow VoLTE on Xiaomi Mi4i, if your device is working on MIUI 7 or MIUI 8 ROM. well, in this tutorial, we will guide you to know how to enable VoLTE on Xiaomi Mi4i.
Today, through this article, we will tell you the process for enabling VoLTE on Xiaomi Mi4i so that you can use 4G services like Reliance Jio, Airtel on it. Remember that although Xiaomi Mi4i supports Reliance Jio’s 4G network (LTE), it will not support VoLTE, so you cannot make phone calls over LTE. This workaround enables VoLTE on Mi4i, which requires choosing a system file.
As this workaround requires editing a system file, make sure that your device has full root access. You can check it by using the app like Root Checker. To modify the system file, you need to install ‘SQLite Editor’ app, a paid app from Play store. With the help of this app, the user can browse, open and edit SQLite files on their phone.
