Question: IPhone X keeps dropping calls

IPhone XiOS 11.3 has been dropping calls the past few weeks for no apparent reason. I have reset several times but no success. It happens mostly when I'm driving and the phone is sitting on a seat and I hit a small dump in the road.

Any ideas?

iPhone X, iOS 11.3

How to fix dropped call issues on your AT&T iPhone

  1. Launch the Settings app.
  2. Tap on Cellular.
  3. Tap on Cellular Data Options.
  4. Tap on Enable LTE.
  5. Tap on Data Only.

That's all there is to it. Using this setting, you will still enjoy fast data speeds with all the benefits of LTE, but your phone calls will not use LTE, but the 4G network instead. Since most of the issues seem to be caused by VoLTE enhancements, this should stop dropped calls until the network is fixed. We'd recommend trying to enable voice and data every now and again to see if AT&T has resolved the problem. If not, just toggle Data Only back on for a little while longer.

This trick should work for anyone that's having dropped call issues due to LTE enhancements in a given geographical area on any network. So if that sounds like you, give this a try and let us know how it works for you!

Ask your network provider for advice.

Do a network signal strength test on Google for that network in that area.

If you still have a problem make an appointment at Apple store For a antenna check.
