Not Receiving Calls Occasionally + SMS Delay (Seems to be Wi-Fi-only?)
I posted this over at the /r/verizon subreddit, but haven’t had much luck. For the past few months, I’ve had the issue with my phone not receiving calls sometimes while on Wi-Fi. (Wi-Fi Calling enabled) It doesn’t happen all of the time. It’s also not phone specific, as it has happened with my then-8 Plus and now my XS Max. I enabled calling on my iPad Air 2 for testing. Calls will go to the iPad with no issue, but my XS Max will not acknowledge the call at all. Nothing shows in the call history, either. I’ve reset settings constantly and nothing fixes it. Any toggles that search results suggest don’t seem to help either. I even switched out routers, too. *Has anyone else had this issue or knows of a solution?* I’m afraid I could be missing important calls. I had someone help me test the issue, and turning on Wi-Fi Calling completely ignored the call. Disabling Wi-Fi Calling allowed the call to go through. I live in an area where there is little reception, so I would definitely like to keep Wi-Fi calling enabled.
This also brings up another issue which has been happening for a while: SMS texts are extremely delayed. For example, waiting for short-code texts take ages. Things like PayPal logins (which send a text) may not arrive between 30mins – 2hrs.
