Iridium 2-Stage Dialing - Verizon DTMF Tones

Here are few recommendations we have found that may resolve the problem.

Switching Off VoLTE on Android

 To turn off VoLTE, your phone should have enabled VoLTE. You can check it by searching for the VoLTE icon on the top notification bar along with the call networks.

 Go to Settings and search for Connection > Mobile Networks (This may vary depending on your smartphone). Tap on your Primary SIM.

 Find the VoLTE toggle button and turn it off. It’s disabled now. To enable it again, you can follow the steps in reverse.

Switching Off VoLTE on iOS

 iPhone users can find the option in the Cellular Data options.

Head to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options and tap Enable LTE. Alternatively, head to Settings > Mobile Data and tap Enable LTE.

iOS users have three different options to choose from:

Off: Turns off LTE

Voice & Data: Allows voice calls and cellular-data use over LTE

Data Only: Allows cellular-data use, but not voice calls over LTE

If this does not resolve the problem, the customer will need to contact Verizon directly and report the problem for further investigation
