Compatible Smartphones

    Infinix Hero 8 is not on the list also. i can’t find the “VoLTE”.

    • Even if it has VoLTE, the feature might not appear in the settings. If it does, then just activate it and test calls and text.

    • For most phones, it should be under Network Settings. Some devices will only show it if the phone itself is supported by the network.

    • The redmi 6a is not on their list. But you can try it. If you can activate VoLTE on the phone’s settings, it should work. DITO relies on VoLTE for calls. Data should work as long as you have the correct APN settings.

    • It could work for data but there’s a big chance you might not be able to access calls and texts since the tablet is not listed as a compatible device.

    • The Samsung Galaxy A20e is not on DITO’s list of compatible phones. You can give it a try. Data and texting will most likely work. Ang likely issue would be baka walang calls. Kailangan ma activate VoLTE for calls. I’ve read people having issues sa calls.

  2. My phone Huawei Y9 Prime is showing SOS only. The area has dito coverage, I’m not sure how to fix this.

    Hi i just received my DITO Sim. but uppon insert it on my phone it didn’t work. signal Bar reflects SOS. Im using Huawie p30 pro which is compatible naman po.

        Hi, my phone is one of the list for compatible phones which is vivo y20i. I can use the data and for texting. But i can’t use the call. What to do?
        Thanks

        • Try activating VoLTE. My friends had similar issues. Turn on mobile data, then turn on VoLTE. Test if you can make calls then.

        • The handset is not on DITO’s list of compatible devices, so it might not work. You can try checking in your phone’s settings, under network settings for VoLTE. If its there, activate it. If not, you might need to get in touch with DITO’s customer service.
