Hey cjjohnst! 

 

That sounds strange. 

 

If i understand correctly, this is only happening intermittently, is that right? 

 

Does this only happen in Vancouver or everywhere? Does the same thing happen when you put your SIM card in another phone?

 

Let us know!

Re: Number you are trying to reach is not assigned

I am having thie same problem. My  wife is in Eurpoe, at the moment with her fido phne (pixel 2) and when I call  her I get the number is not assigned mesage. Regardless of where she is, shouldnt it at least go staright to voicemail? Makes no sense. Will switch carriers if this continues, she is wating for important calls.

Hey eatvan!

 

Don't worry, I'm sure we can get this figured out together!

 

Is this only happening when you call her number or are all callers unable to reach her? Is she able to place calls?

 

Has she tried connecting to a different network from the networks available where she is travelling to see if that changes anything? 

 

Let us know!

Re: Number you are trying to reach is not assigned

It happens from several different numbers. However, I think the point is being lost here. If the phone is turned off or out of service area, shouldn’t it just go to voicemail? The automated "this number has not been assigned" message gives the caller the impression that they have been given the wrong number as the number doesn’t exist. Why doesn’t it just go straight to vm?

We're here to figures this out. Smiley 

 

Does this happen only while travelling? When you say that this happens with several different numbers, are you referring to your phone or your wife's?  Or perhaps is it happening with both? 

 

Are you able to select another network while roaming to see if there's any changes?

Hey @cjjohnst

 

Having your phone fixed is important for us.

 

What do you mean that we put the phone down on you?


You had a chance to go to one of our stores to get you your phone checked?

 

Can you tell us more about what was done on your end to have this fixed?
