Dropped Calls and Messages Not Being Indicated

I recently moved into a new building.

I've noticed that all my calls are suddenly dropped after a few minutes even though I seem to have a strong signal initially. It doesn't matter which room I am in when on the call.

 

Also, I have discovered I haven't been receiving my voicemails for the last 5 days. People have left them and the only reason I checked was because people told me. Otherwise my phone is not indicating that I have voicemail anymore.


Is this a tower signal issue in my new area or could it be my phone that is causing the issues?

 

I don't use my phone much during the day to be able to compare.

 

Thanks!
T

If this has been going on for a bit then it is most likely due to the sim card or the device itself.

 

Without the device model I cannot give you the instructions for a reset to factory settings. You can try going to a Fido store and testing another sim card or use a friends sim card to isolate the problem to the device or the sim card

Hi Tatijana,

 

Can you let us know which phone you have?

How old is your sim card?

I have a Nokia  - not sure of model. It's about 2 years old.

The sim card is much, much older. I couldn't even say how old.

 

I have confirmed calls are dropping outside of my new place also, that I am not being alerted of voicemail messages outside of the new place as well.
