Why do we keep dropping calls?

My mother's cell keeps dropping calls. I have followed all the troubleshooting steps on Verizon website, but nothing helps. I know it's not the area, because my phone never drops calls.

Perhaps a new sim card, factory reset, if that fails then it will be an issue with the phones connection in the network and would need to be troubleshooted over the phone by calling technical support so they can view the information in the switch to find out why the calls are dropping (bad handoff etc).

Hi lora316k!

I'm sorry to learn of any dropped calls with your mother's device. Let's check this out OK? Is she having issues when indoors only, or both indoors and outdoors? What zip code is she located in when this is happening? Or is it something that is happening in many different areas? Please share some details for me, I'd like to make sure she's OK.

Thanks,

It's not the building that is the problem. Me and my mother live in the

same house yet she has problem and I don't.

Well, that could be an issue with her phones ability to receive a signal. Did you get that sim card replaced?

If you did and the issue is still occurring, does it happen in every building? It could be an issue with the phones internal antenna and the device may need to be physically examined.

Thanks for the additional details lora316k. Do you and your Mom both have the same make and model device? Thanks for trying a hard reset. That is usually the final step for troubleshooting. Were you able to try a different SIM, as the community recommended? They are available at store locations. http://bit.ly/3SdsA

Yes, we have the same make and model. No, I have not got a chance to try

new SIM yet.
