I joked on my Facebook page that my phone wants me to become a hermit because anytime I go near my calendar, the call is dropped. Well, I think I fixed the issue (knock on wood!) so I thought I’d share in case anyone else is having this problem.
We haven’t had a home phone for 10 years now. We were living in the next county over and our home phone was long distance to most friends & family, so they just called our cell phones. I got sick of paying huge sums of money every month for telemarketers to call us, so we cut the cord. All fine & dandy until I upgraded to an iPhone 6 from my old 4S and suddenly could no longer rely on it for phone calls.
The phone didn’t care if I was on a business call, talking to another Mom about a playdate, arranging an appointment or talking to my insurance agent. Quite often people could hear me but I couldn’t hear them. Just as often, the call would drop and sometimes I’d have to restart the phone to get rid of the “no service” message. Can you say annoying? The fix took a few seconds and the phone has worked like a dream ever since.
First click the settings icon, then select cellular.
Choose “enable LTE.”
Select “data only”
Then enjoy your functioning smart phone.
The LTE network is supposed to be “faster” but for areas like mine where coverage is spotty, well, coverage is spotty. Turning it off fixed the problem completely, instantly.
Have you had this issue? Did you try this fix?
