Phone: Pixel 3a XL
Plan: My Choice w/ Data
I’ve been with RW since 2012. To this day, I have had the same issue with calls not coming through while in airplane mode, but with WiFi enabled (VoIP only mode). I’ve had various Motorola phones, Google Pixel… doesn’t matter. I’ve had Linksys, Asus, Netgear, TP-Link and other routers, but always the same issue. I can be holding the phone in my hand and suddenly see the Voicemail icon pop into the notification area because my phone did not ring and the call went straight to voicemail. Voicemail notifications come in immediately. Never had an issue with SMS not coming in.
Other people have had this same issue and there was quite some discussion about a few years ago. I’ve just lived with it. But, it’s starting to become unacceptable. Today, my girlfriend tried to call me half a dozen times from various locations after leaving her dental appointment. None of the calls came through to me. My phone gave absolutely no indication that a call from her phone ever rang on mine, and she indicates that the calls go straight to voicemail every time.
I like RW. I want to stay with RW. But, there are too many options out there, and I would probably get calls without the caller having to go to voicemail.
Are others still experiencing this issue? Does anyone have a solid clue as to why this is happening? It’s been going on for 9 years, now. I can’t imagine RW engineers don’t have a handle on this.
