Hi I recently got a Samsung s8 through Vodafone UK as part of an upgrade deal. I am unabke to use the keypad/dialpad when i use calls so that i can choose the options that direct me towards the service I want.
For example if the voice automated person says "press 2 to go customer service" after I've pressed the number the call goes back to the beginning and lists the options that I can choose again.
I was wondering how I could fix this problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I too have the same problem and have just spoken to a Samsung support advisor who tells me it is not the fault of the phone, it is the IVR Systems of the people who we are phoning. Has anyone else been told this?
I'm having the same issue. Its recent. It may have started when I updated to
Android 8.0. Changing the settings suggested here or verifying them doesn't help. It may also be an issue with the latest Samsung update. I have to use my cable phone now if im going to choose options with a keypad. Fix it Android, or Samsung.
What worked for me after chating with Samsung support:
Go to settings >> Apps >> 3 dots on the top right >> show system apps >> search for the phone application ( 3 applications) >> storage >> clear data.
