Possible Causes Why Your Galaxy S22 May Drop Calls

There are six possible causes for your Galaxy S22’s dropping calls problem.

  1. Carrier Change: If you’ve recently switched your network provider, the new carrier’s settings will not be fully compatible with the device.
  2. Location-Specific Drops: Weak network coverage or signal interference in specific locations causes call drops.
  3. Network Call Duration Limit: Some network providers automatically end calls after a certain duration, typically 1 hour. This is a network feature, not a device issue.
  4. Travel-Related Drops: While you’re traveling, the device switches between cell towers for optimal signal strength. If this handover process is not smooth, your calls will drop.
  5. Overloaded Cell Towers: When a cell tower is handling more connections than its capacity, it will drop some calls to manage the load.
  6. Physical Obstructions: Physical objects like buildings, trees, and hills will obstruct network signals.

This guide addresses all these causes and provides step-by-step solutions with instructions to fix the call dropping problem on your Samsung Galaxy S22. 

So, now let’s move to the first solution.

Fix 01: Contact Network Provider

When you’re troubleshooting your Galaxy S22’s call dropping problem, it’s important to rule out network-related problems before moving on to device-specific solutions. 

Therefore you need to contact the network provider to ensure that the call dropping issue isn’t stemming from your network provider’s end. 

Here’s a general guideline on how to contact popular carriers in the US:

  1. AT&T: Dial 611 from your AT&T device, or call 1-800-331-0500 from any phone.
  2. Verizon: Dial *611 from your Verizon device, or call 1-800-922-0204 from any phone.
  3. T-Mobile: Dial 611 from your T-Mobile device, or call 1-800-937-8997 from any phone.
  4. Sprint: Dial *2 from your Sprint device, or call 1-888-211-4727 from any phone.

When you get in touch with your carrier, explain the issue you’re experiencing and ask them to check if there are any ongoing service disruptions or network congestion. 

Also, ask them to check your device has been correctly set up for their network, especially if you’ve recently switched carriers. 

After solving the network-related problem by contacting the network provider, now you need to check if the call dropping has been resolved.

If not, we can begin troubleshooting your Galaxy S22. Move to the next solution.
