How to Fix an iPhone Not Receiving Calls


I need to know how to fix an iPhone not receiving
calls. It isn’t the phone’s fault if no one ever
calls you. I’ve had people swear they did try to call
me. Have you paid your phone bill? Of course I have. That doesn’t mean you don’t have reception. Everything else with wireless works. And you
can’t blame this on me being too close to a wireless router or someone else’s cell
phone interfering with my signal. Put the iPhone in airplane mode. That is the opposite of my intention of being
able to receive calls. Putting it in airplane mode and then back
refreshes your iPhone’s network settings. It may fix your cellular or wi-fi signal. I’m just making calls right now, well, failing
to receive them. That tells me that the problem then isn’t
because it is in airplane mode. I’d put that in the ultimate embarrassing
human error. You can go the more direct route by going
to settings, general, reset, reset network settings, confirm to change it, then let the
phone restart. That’s both a settings change and a restart.
I’d like advice that doesn’t assume endless reboots will fix this. If you changed phone carriers recently or
had the local network change its numbers before the G, you may need to update the data profile. How do you do that? This process depends on your cell phone network,
but for the iPhone 5 with most carriers, go to home, phone, enter the number for your
carrier, then hit call, then Okay. Then it should be talking to the network. Yes, and it will search for the profile updates
for your carrier. Let it finish, and maybe reboot the phone just in case. And then I see if I can call someone and have
them call me. If you couldn’t hear people though it received
the call, I’d say the problem was your headset or volume setting. I’m not even to the point of can you hear
me now. What else could it be? The iOS 9 update caused iPhones to stop receiving
or drop FaceTime calls. This is standard phone calls. And if it were
the recent OS update, I’d know to do a restore to a prior OS version that worked. If it just did an update and the phone stopped
receiving calls, still do a reboot. And if that fails, you could try to do a restore. I wonder if it is a hardware problem. The iPhone 5 and 6 don’t have the antenna
problem some prior phones had, where holding the antenna while you held the phone caused
it not to make or receive calls. I remember the pictures of people putting
it in a headband to let them make calls. Just putting it in a case to call instead
of sweating hands short circuiting the antenna was enough to fix it. My iPhone doesn’t receive calls in any position. Then the next location it needs to be is the
Apple store, so the genius bar can look at it. It doesn’t take a genius to know that’s the
last step. The other solution is a new phone if not a
new network.
