Pixel XL Call drops after a few seconds with no network connection?

I have been experiencing a lot of dropped calls after a few seconds of connecting a call. When I look at my bars there are none and no network connection.  Then after a few more seconds the bars reappear and I can make my call without problems.  This is getting annoying.  Just wondering if any others are experiencing this same issue or is it my phone?

Thanks!

having the exact same problem as all of you....my phone was also overheating every single day so i wondered if that was part of the problem

new  warranty replacement just arrived....copied everything across and BOOM....no change...still no signal or at the very best a tiny bit that keeps cutting in and out every 30 seconds.

this is google GARBAGE ! !

off to my local store tomorrow to get it exchanged for a totally different phone....google help just say  OH SORRY, we know and update is comming but looking at your comments they have been saying that for 6 months...i think its fair to say i would never reccomend a pixel to anyone !

Dont replace your phone. Its not a phone issue. Its a network issue. I have replace my phone 3 times and its still the same issue.

March 16th 2017 and still a near-daily failure. With Advanced calling on, calls are just dropped (well, drops altogether or my end mutes first with no way to remedy, then we have to hang up & start again). With adv calling off, I can't navigate in the car and get a call. Or, already in a call, my navigation apps cannot connect. srsly wth. I resent unspeakably the "answer" from tech supports that a (refurbished) replacement phone (while I continue payments for a brand new unbelievably expensive device!) or sim is the solution. It never is. 

These were the kind of issues I accepted in 1997, but also expected (and received) improvements to.

Same problem. Hollow bars. It seems to be tied to towers that I connect to with LTE. It consistently has problems with those towers. I've replaced SIM card, run in safe mode for 24 hours. All with no good result. I need to get this problem fixed or move to a different phone. But will Nougat running on another phone have the same problem? It seems to be happening to Nexus phones as well when they've upgraded to Nougat.

Check this for Google forum to the problem:

I'm still having the same problem. I've replaced both my phone and SIM card, but nothing will fix it. Google continues to give me the runaround. I made a video of the problem if it helps anyone:

I hope there's a solution soon.

Same issues.  No help from Verizon or Google.  [Removed], they don't even lie to me telling me they are aware of the issue- it's always the same thing.  Safe mode, replace SIM card, replace phone.  4th SIM and second device.  All the same issues.  I don't know why I got rid of my 6P.  Never had any issues with that phone.  And disabling Advanced calling is a weak answer - in 2017 you should be able to have navigation running in your car and get a phone call.

I got the regular pixel November 25, 2016.  It has dropped calls daily.  The patch in December helped bit did not eliminate the problem.  Multiple calls to Verizon tech and Google.  Data roaming turned on, advanced calling off, changed network to global, and new SIM card. About had it!

I too have had this problem.  It seems to not be as bad the last few days. But, it's too soon to tell at this point.

I have had all the same issues VZW is currently shipping my 4th Pixel Xl 128 silver. This is a joke. Everytime I call they want to troubleshoot it, and last night I refused. If they forced my Note 7 out of my hand please have a device that will compatibility replace it.

I was having the same problem, where my signal would drop from full to nothing (like a hollow signal indicator) and drop calls and anything else I'm doing. It could happen anywhere but was most common in specific geographical areas, I think around specific cell towers. Replacing my SIM didn't fix it. After beating my head against the problem for a long time and working with Verizon and Google support, I finally found a workaround on the Google product forums that fixed the problem. Go to:

Settings > Wireless & Networks > More > Cellular networks > Disable Advanced Calling

I hope they fix it soon, because I liked the Advanced Calling features, but for now I'm happy to have a stable signal again.

Update: Disabling Advanced Calling helped the problem but didn't completely fix it.

I talked to Verizon today, and they said they are aware of the problem and there should be a fix soon.

Same here.  Dropping calls at random times.  I'm on my replacement pixel and still having the same issues.  I did switch my cellular network from global to lte/cdma and turned off HD calling.  My calls are better but I don't have internet for a good chunk of time.  I also tried getting a new sim as well as doing a factory reset, but that still have me dropped calls.  Only thing working is what I mentioned earlier. I hope this gets fixed soon.

I spoke too soon. I was issued a refurbished phone as my second Pixel XL. I am currently in VZW seeing what can be done about this issue.
