When trying to call people from my phone it waits a while in silence and then goes straight to voicemail. I have to try about 3 or 4 times for it to actually ring the other persons phone. I know that they have their phones on and are in signal but i have to keep retrying for it to actually work

Im having the same trouble and it began a few days ago. At the moment its only one number that i ring which goes staright to my friends voicemail. The other numbers of family and friends ring without any problem. I asked my friend if his phone rings when he recieves calls from other callers and he says he has no problem.


I have switched off my phone. re activated it, i have taken out the sim and cleaned it, but problem is still there.

Had a similar problems ourselves on a smartphone and we restarted the phone (switched off for approx 2 minutes then back on) - did the trick for us - have you tried a restart?

I have exact same problem. Outgoing calls go to voicemail. Now I use WhatsApp and place calls from there, or Viber.
