Moto E4 can't place calls because phone is quickly switching back and forth from "cell" to "wifi"

What phone do you have? Moto E4 Nougat 7.1
What plan are you on? My Choice Plan
Does your plan include data, or just talk & text? TT&D


When I awoke this morning, I was unable to make a call! This resolved on it’s own 3 hours later.
During this three hour malfunction I noticed that the signal strength meters at the top of the screen were flashing regularly every few seconds, or so.
By flashing, I mean the Cellular strength was varying from 1 bar to No Signal repeatedly, While the WiFi signal meter was reading full signal to No signal in response to the fluctuating cell signal.
I am assuming the problem was due to Cell Tower maintenance, etc at this time.
My Question is: Can I set my phone to disregard the cellular signal and just stay locked on to my WiFi if this situation arises again?
Thank you,

Sure. Turn on Airplane mode and re-enable Wi-Fi:

To turn Airplane mode on or off:

  1. Open your device’s Settings app.
  2. Tap Network & Internet.
  3. Turn Airplane mode on or off.
  4. You can connect to Wi-Fi while in Airplane mode. Learn how to connect to Wi-Fi networks.

Turn on & connect to Wi-Fi:

  1. Open your device’s Settings app.
