    Yep, it drops calls in Saudi Arabia all the time. My iPhone 4 didn't do that.


    Yesterday I wanted to buy for my parents two iPhones in Jordan but only found 4S, didn't find an iPhone 4. I was so close to buy them Samsung but I said to myself I'd wait another month or two hoping for iPhone 5 to replace my 4S too.


    Seriously Apple, you made all Samsung loyalists make fun of us..!

    I feel I must add to this post as this is my first iPhone (4S on O2 in the UK) and I am completely frustrated and disappointed with it!!


    It keeps dropping calls and the battery life is awful, I am now seriously concidering selling it!!


    This is such a shame as I have a full suite of other Apple products such as iMac, iPad1, iPad2, MacBooks and ATV2 and all of them are fantatsic.


    Apple you MUST sort this out.

  • casterink Level 1 Level 1

    My iphone4s drops more than 60 percent of calls. Do Apple announce any remedy for this. I will not buy apple products hereafter.

  • chicknskratch Level 1 Level 1

    Well let's add to the list shall we, I bought my 4s in late november/early december and noticed dropped calls right away, I didn't complain at first because it was new and every new line of apple products has had some kind of issue and I thought Apple would sort it out with a software upgrade but they haven't and now it's a giant **** off, I cannot say how many times this stupid phone has dropped calls, its ridiculous, Apple is supposed to be a technology leader and the thing is called an i"phone" however the phone is its worst function.with


    I am with Rogers in Canada and it seems to usually drop if I am on the phone for 10+ minutes, as if it says, "well this conversation has gone on long enough." It is especially annoying when calling support from companies like rogers or apple where you have to wait on hold for a while and then I finally get through to someone and then it drops. Most companies won't call back either so after spending half an hour waiting I have to start all over again.

    Very dissapointing Apple. I am a long time customer and reccommend your brand to almost everyone I know, please fix this issue.

    Same issue on T-Mobile Czech Republic...

    The problem is that the phone is swapping networks (3G->EGDE->3G...) while in the middle of a call.

    That would be understandable if there would be no signal which is not the case.

    Something in the new iPhone 4S antenna design is causing this. The concept itself of swapping antennas is good but it appears the OS is not ready for it.

    Now my friends have reasons to make fun of me that I didnt buy an Android phone I might very well go back to my provider and ask for a HTC One X if it continues like this. I use the phone for business purposes, 1-2h calls per day and I dont want to disable 3G every time I make a call.


    I had 3 dropped calls in 5 minutes before I decided to disable 3G.

    Status Update: I switched the phone company about a month ago, from Movistar to Pepephone (Spain), and have not had any call dropped ever since. Misterious ways.

  • David@H Level 1 Level 1

    My iPhone 4s drops calls longer than 15 mins  I am on Verizon network  and never had a dropped call till I switched to an iphone

  • hime100 Level 1 Level 1

    I don't know why this keep in secret iPhone 4s have common problem with drop calls

    first in November I upgrade to 4s immediately my call start dropped change two microsim  not help change to another  new 4s same problem from the start

    after some research find that is common problem with 4s that many people have.

  • dr.shovik Level 1 Level 1

    my 4S drops calls when I keep the "Cellular Data" ON.

    If I turn off the cellular data, then everything goes fine.

    Is it a hardware issue with my 4S?

  • dr.shovik Level 1 Level 1

    Well , you're right... Turning off Cellular data is the solution for now.


    But , is there anyother solution to this problem?


    thank you!

  • Cezar I. Level 1 Level 1

    Not cellular data but 3G. If you leave it on EDGE you won't have problems. The phone seems to jump from 3G to EDGE without a very good reason while in a call. Of course the result is a "failed call". Apple failed to properly tune their OS.... I think I'll soon follow Wozniak's example and get a nokia windows phone. That even comes with turn by turn navigation build in for 100$ less, can you imagine that? :))))

  • dr.shovik Level 1 Level 1

    I'm having the problem on EDGE too

    So, it means I'm not the only one with this issue....


    Is it with all 4Ss? or just a bad batch of 4S?

  • kacord Level 1 Level 1

    Actually, my iPhone 4S drops the calls the most like stated before when it is either inside switching wifi vs. 3G/4G networks. or in my office where I have my network set up.  I use AT&T in Texas, and was able to get it to work fine for a couple of months in the beginning of 2012.  Then I went and updated with the rest, and well, there goes my ability to use my phone as a phone.  I don't have time to do anything about it, because I'm to busy, and the calls I do make and receive are important.  That's why it is so frustrating that either the I can't hear the other person, they can't hear me, or "call failed" which just plain makes me .

  • dwneylonsr Level 1 Level 1

    My wife's iPhone 4s on Verizon will drop at some point during almost every call.  Just now over a 15 min conversation the call dropped 4 times.


    So far I've seen two posts with potential solutions.  Shut off cellular data and doing a deep reset.  I've also noticed several comments that it's related to swtiching between 3g and 4g networks.  That seems possible as her phone almost never appears connected at 4g but perhaps we're at the edge of the 4g area.

  • 74promotions Level 1 Level 1

    I have precisely the same issue with my 4S and it's significantly impacting my business. The work I do tends to mean I spend a large amount of time on the phone and people can very often neither make or receive calls from me due to this. I miss LOADS of calls every day purely because Apple, despite clearly having had this problem for at least 6 months, have done nothing about it.


    I'm on my second 4S, and much as I theoretically love the product itself, it is utterly, utterly hopeless at it's main function, which is being a mobile telephone.....


    So incredibly frustrated.
