Hi,

what I’m experiencing is annoying. I have a Samsung J5 2016, and I experience the following problems:

  1. people try to call me and my phone hang up after few seconds without me having time to answer.
  2. People telling me that they tried to phone me and my number is engaged.

Because this is a problem that comes and go, I need to be sure that there  are no problems with the line. I thought it was a problem with my memory and I added an external SIM Card. I thought it worked, but it (probably) doesn’t.

My Postcode is SW9

I really can’t afford to miss phone calls in this moment.

Thank you very much for your kind answer.

Resetting the network worked fine with me, apparently.

Hi @Davide71, sorry to hear about the issues you’re having with calls dropping. Firstly, this will have no connection to your phone’s storage. When you say an external SIM card, what do you mean exactly? Do you mean a microSD Card?

Does this issue only happen at home, or when you’re out and about too? How long have you been with us and when did the issue first arise? Are you using Wi-Fi Calling?

It’ll be worth resetting your network settings and restarting the phone. On your Samsung J5, go to Settings > General management > Reset > Reset network settings. Please note: this will also remove any Wi-Fi networks, so they’ll need to be set up again once done. 

Finally, have you recently changed any voicemail settings?

 

Thank you,

Rory
