At your home? At your work? Everywhere? You need to be a bit more specific.

I have like 4-5 bars UNTIL I make a call, then it drops right down to 1 bar, and the quality is terrible. Why would my signal change when I make a call? Please help.

What kind of phone (make/model) do you have?  Are you making a cell or WiFi call (is WiFi calling active)?

Verizon 4G LTE

I don't know how to activate WiFi calling but I turned off WiFi and it still did the same thing.

You might check out one of the signal strength apps and monitor it while making a call.  And it would still help us if you identify your phone make/model.

Thanks for the dialogue.

My model number is:  VS425PP

Does that help?

Is there a specific signal strength app you can recommend?

Network Cell Info Lite is a good one.

Are you able to see the signal strength before a call and during a call?  Call Technical Support and ask them about it 800-922-0204 or *611. You may have to have them escalate it to the next level or have them open a ticket with another group.
