Have to restart to receive SMS after leaving wifi

On my Galaxy S22 (unlocked), when i have wifi calling turned on, almost every time i leave my home wifi i stop receiving SMS messages. 

Rebooting the phone will fix it... But this is not a solution, because im not going to restart my phone *every* time i leave my house.

My only solution is to turn off wifi calling, but then i have horrible service in my house.

Something is broken about the wifi to cellular SMS transition, please fix.
