I have been informed that I am receiving phone calls from friends via text, but I don't see anything in my missed call list and I don't see anything pop up when they are trying to call so that I can answer the call. I have been told it rings once or twice and then sends them to voicemail. I have no idea what to do about this, but I desperately need it to change.
When I go to settings, I have looked under everything available and have not found anything about call forwarding, divert all calls to voicemail, or call barring in the phone apps settings. I checked my phone to see about do not disturb, but it was not turned on.
@ChristoThor: Do you mean that you were unable to find the settings, or that the settings weren't active? If you couldn't find them, please open the Phone app > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Settings > Supplementary Services > Call Forwarding > Disable any forwarding options here > Back > Call Barring > Disable any active barring options, especially 'All Incoming Calls'. Now, head to Settings > Connections > Flight Mode, and toggle this off if it is enabled.
If the issue persists, please remove your SIM, give the gold contacts a rub, and put it back to see if this helps. If the issue is only affecting certain contacts, please open the Contacts app, select an affected contact, tap the 3 dots in the top right, and select Unblock Contact, if applicable. I also recommend reaching out to your network provider to see if there are any restrictions on your account, or to the service in your current area.
