We are, therefore, going to share with you some real solutions that will enable you to continue enjoying the amazing experiences that come with owning a Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone.
In many cases, people will begin to notice the calling issues on Galaxy S9 when they stay on the call for a few minutes and then end up with a dead connection. This could be due to an unreliable data connection or some serious network issues. This article is designed to give you the technical know-how on how to go about fixing the call issues on Samsung Galaxy S9 when you need to fix the problem urgently and on your own without extra costs.
Check At The Signal Bars On Your Galaxy S9 Smartphone
One very obvious thing you need to watch out for before making a call is ensuring you do have enough credits on your SIM or account to facilitate the call. Paranoia can get the best of us every now and then, so who knows if you’re worrying for nothing. After that, ensure that there is a strong network connection wherever you are. You can check this by simply looking at the Signal Bars at the top corner of your screen. If you only have one or two bars or none at all, then it means you will not be able to make a call or receive one successfully. The lack of network connectivity on your Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone will definitely interrupt any calls you make or take.

Verify Your Account’s Status With Your Service Carrier
The only way to ensure that your smartphone supports all cellular services is by verifying your account. Make sure that you actually have an active account. Pay all your bills so that your phone carrier does not have a reason to deactivate your account. If your carrier is either Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile, ensure that you check with them to confirm that your account is active.
Check And Verify With Your Service Provider If There Is A Network Outage In Your Area
In extreme weather conditions, cellular services are sometimes disrupted. It is possible that the network mast/booster in a given area has been knocked down by strong winds. In other circumstances, it is just a routine maintenance causing the network outage. When there is a network outage due to any of the reasons mentioned above, you will not be able to make or receive phone calls.
The best solution is to wait until the mast is repaired or the maintenance is completed and cellular services restored. Once the network coverage is restored, you can resume normal cellular operations on your device such as making and receiving phone calls.
