Hi @13arnold,

Welcome tom the Community!

Firstly I would advise to reset your network settings and restart the handset.

Have you checked the coverage in your area?

It may also be worth testing the SIM in a different device to see if that makes a difference.




I am unable to make or receive calls presently. I have full signal & on unlimited calls. My airplane mode is not on

Hi @Kazh 


I’m sorry to hear this, have you tried the above suggested to reset network settings?


For iPhone;

Settings > General > Transfer or Reset [Device] > Reset > Reset Network Settings.


For most Android;

Settings > System > Reset options > Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth


For Samsung; 

Settings > General management > Reset > Reset mobile network settings

Resetting network settings will NOT reset any personal data (Photos, Videos, Contacts etc) only network settings.



I am quitting id mobile for this reason. We have both been without calling in our area since May 5th and id has done nothing about it. We class as vulnerable customers and no one has ever returned a call and tech support is non existent. The phones are 4g compatible, software is up to date. We live in S Yorks and the phones work in Manchester and Bawtry so it is a network problem.
