Calls straight to voicemail, no missed call notification

Phone: Samsung S6

Problem: SOME forwarded calls go straight to voicemail with NO missed call notification.

Calls must be forwarded - turning OFF all forwarding is not the option nor should it be the only solution (this is the solution I have found on these community forum and need a better option)

Not all calls have been missed but 2 important work calls just today have been missed with my Voicemail icon popping up 10-15 minutes AFTER the VM was left.

Not getting the call notification and having a voicemail notification come in "late" can not be accepted.

How do I get the calls to come through without going STRAIGHT to voicemail or at least give a MISSED CALL NOTIFICATION?

4 out of 5 or 6 calls have done this in 2 days.

Samsung 6 is recently updated this month.

Do Not Disturb is disabled - I don't use it.

These callers are in my phone's contacts and NOT blocked.

Why am I missing these calls with no notifications?

Doubt this is a phone specific problem but thought I'd try posting here first.

I have a Samsung S6 and had the EXACT same problem, turning off "HD voice and video calling" solved the problem for me.

Go to settings> advanced calling

Verizon, your customer support is less than adequate.
