Hi tbronson158,

I understand that you're consistently dropping calls when using Wi-Fi calling, despite being near your router. I'm happy to provide some help for this issue.

I recommend following the Get Help section of the article below for help with this issue:

Make a call with Wi-Fi Calling - Apple Support

Get help

If you can't turn on or use Wi-Fi Calling, make sure that your carrier offers Wi-Fi Calling and that your devices have the latest software. Then, follow these steps if you can't turn on Wi-Fi Calling or make a Wi-Fi call. Wait two minutes before you go from one step to the next.

  1. Go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling and make sure that Wi-Fi Calling is on.
  2. Restart your iPhone.
  3. Connect to a different Wi-Fi network. Not all Wi-Fi networks work with Wi-Fi Calling.
  4. Turn Wi-Fi Calling off and then on again.
  5. Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset Network Settings.

FaceTime isn't available in all countries or regions.

If you continue having this issue, I recommend contacting your carrier for additional help. You can find the contact information for many carriers in the article below:

Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Cheers!
