Cannot make calls.

iPhone 7. Why can I not make calls when away from my home network? What should be the phone’s settings to enable this?

Greetings @Gillder!

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

As long as you have an active cellular subscription, your phone should be able to make calls away from your home network by default. 

 

To restore your cellular settings, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

 

If the issue is due to a settings related issue, this should fix it. If the issue continues after the reset, please feel free to send us a private message to @CommunityHelps so we can assist you further. For more information on how our Private Messaging system works, you can find out more here.  

 

Regards,

RogersCorey

Thanks so much Roger. I’ll certainly see if your suggestion does the trick. Several times now I’ve found the need to use the phone in order to gain entrance to a business, dentist, whatever and the phone will not make the call leaving me to bang on the door to get attention.
