Hi, I’m having an issue where calls drop and I have no connectivity but only in a particular area (town centre). I have 2 sim cards for work and the one that doesn’t work is the 5G phone. I have called Virgin on numerous occasions but nothing has helped. this has been going on for nearly 2 months and is affecting my work. Any help or advise would be appreciated
I assume the 5G phone is running on a 5G SIM from Virgin which would mean it's on Vodafone.
If the other SIM is OK it could still be on EE.
On your 5G phone is VoLTE switched on? It is getting to the stage where that is becoming more important as calls over 5G and 4G require it otherwise they will drop to 3G (or even 2G) and there is a chance you will lose the call.
If it is a network fault then not a lot Virgin could do as it is down to the network provider and it is unlikely they would not know about it.
Both Vodafone and EE have thier ownfault checkers, so that would be the best place to go first.

Thank you Enlli! I do have the VoLTE on. I did ask Virgin whether it was a network issue but they said they weren’t aware of any issues in the area. The calls i tried to make today were lagging. I called the wife and the call dropped. Got home and her mobile started ringing - my call was coming through 10 mins later. I will definitely check EE and Voda. Thanks for your help
Hi, i have checked both EE and Vodafone network coverage and both seem to be fine. I couldn’t find any issues anywhere. Really could do with some help as the issue is definitely in one area only. As soon i am driving towards the town centre area, my phone goes off and hence cant receive notifications from my employer
We tried resetting the network setting, turning wifi on & off, putting it in airplane mode etc. Then getting new sim cards, restoring factory settings and much more (sorry cant remember everything). I contacted Samsung too and we went through troubleshooting but all cam back fine. I am having problems with calls only in the town centre area. My second Virgin phone (not 5G) is working fine. So i am assuming it has something to do with 5G?
Very sorry to hear that @AshWolves, thanks for expanding.
This seems to be the case, can you confirm both the device and your area are 5G compatible? If you're unsure, you can check this here. It may be a case the town centre isn't 5G compatible which may explain the drops in your calls.
The town centre and phone are both 5g compatible. But even it wasnt wouldn’t The phone just connect to 4g and let me make and take calls? There is definitely 5G in our city especially in the town centre area
