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!

Same problem here. Tired of it. Google should have had Fisher Price make Pixel, better results probably.

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 am having the same problem. Verizon replace my sim and phone. no help.

I have the Bluetooth shut off now, and its been a whole 24hrs since i had a problem. Can anyone else say the same?.. grasping at straws

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.

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 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.

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.
