new to VZW constant dropped calls

I'm new to VZW, and my experience has been less than stellar.

My biggest outstanding issue is that I will be on a phone call and the call will drop, a few seconds later the signal bars would grey out, and then they would flatline.

I ended up getting a new sim, same behavior, so I had them setup the eSim and it still happend, then I replaced the phone (iPhone 11 Pro Max from Apple, fully unlocked) and setup the eSim on there, same issue is happening. On the latest iOS (13.1.2).

I'm not moving (sitting at my desk in my office building with full signal bars).  The "device diagnostics" app in the verizon app show everything is fine.

I've talked to phone support and in store support they are at a loss.

I am sorry that we have not started off on the right foot with you as we want to see you have the best experience on our network. Are you only dropping calls and seeing the signal fluctuate when in your office? Are you connected to Wi-Fi at this location and using Wi-Fi Calling under Settings> Phone > Wi-Fi Calling? Please set Enable LTE to Data Only via Settings > Cellular Cellualr Data Options > Enable LTE and test the quality of your calls once again. -  YaleK_VZW

I use the phone mostly while in the office, but I have had it drop in a similar way at home once or twice.

The office wifi doesn't support wifi calling, but it is enabled on the device and the device is connected to wifi.

nobrainer78, thank you for the additional details you shared. I know how important it is for you to be able to make calls without them dropping. I am confident that we can resolve this issue. Is your Verizon Wireless phone number voice and data set as the primary mobile number? Settings > Cellular. Tap Default Voice Line. To check your Verizon Data profile, please go to Settings > Cellular. Tap on Cellular Data. Also, do you experience any issues with your mobile data or text messages when you are in your office?

I can barely get coverage. I can’t place a call so it could be dropped. That’s Verizon’s solution to dropped call. For their service you need home internet and wireless router. Cellular is available in parts of major cities, other than that, forget about it. I’m describing 4g. Expect less from 5g

I would want the best service at all times too, Timwhitfld. I'm sorry that you're not getting that. Home Based Internet/WiFi is recommended as an indoor solution, if possible. Are your issues mainly inside your home, or outdoors as well? What location? (zip code)

 

Please elaborate to better assist you.

Poor service will never be normal with Verizon, Timwhitfld. Please allow us to review your specific service concerns and explore options (https://www.verizon.com/support/troubleshooting/smartphones/) to improve your wireless experience. What specific Verizon Wireless service issues are you experiencing?

I am not new to Verizon and I am experiencing dropped calls on my Iphone 11.  I have had the SIM card replaced and have reset my network settings.  I never had this issue before so what is going on??  Right now I am using WiFi only but would like to use cellular since I live in a fairly large city.  I do have reception problem with TV and radio in my area because of the many broadcast towers.  I have lived in the area for many years and have not experienced phone issues before.
