My daughter and I both have Samsung Galaxy S7 phones.
Hers is through Sprint … mine is unlocked through Republic Wireless.
We were in a restaurant today (one of a few in our area that isn’t closed because of Harvey). To test my phone, she tried (several times) to call me while sitting across the table from me.
We both had 1 bar of service. Her call list shows 3 outgoing calls to me, but my phone never rang and I don’t have any of those potential incoming calls in my call list. (Remember I’m using cell service at this point … not wifi.)
While I was not able to receive her call(s), I was able to call her, and she was able to answer the call. Is this discrepancy because she is using CDMA and I’m using GSM (assuming that is what RW set me up for)?
After we left the building, and we both had full bars for cell service, I was able to receive a call from her phone.
Is this lack of receiving a call when having low bars, for cell service, normal? If not, is there something I can do? I had forwarded my house phone to the cell phone (and tested to make sure it worked) because I was expecting a call. I do not know yet if the expected caller tried to call me and didn’t get through.
