Not accepting calls message

Some people calling me get the message that I am not receiving calls. They can get through if the dial 1 and the area code. Just happened this week, talked to same person last week with no issue. Also restored my iPhone 6splus and still have the issue

This error message would be heard by callers if you had their number blocked. Is it possible yr hat somehow you have inadvertently blocked their number? Are other callers receiving the same message or is it just one caller? Have you tried calling your own number from another phone and see if you received the same message?

2 different businesses, so I believe land lines. One was my vet and another

was a recruiter.

Went to the store and they said it was an issue with changes in land lines-

I'm not sure that's correct. I don't have anyone blocked and restored

everything to factory settings. I tried calling from a voip phone and cell

and got through.

We certainly want to see you get theses important calls. May I have your zip code to investigate the network in the area? Are the businesses located in the same area as your mobile numbers area code? YaleK_VZW

I activated a new line last night. iPhone 2020 SE. Ported a number over from AT&T. It will work for everything but receiving calls, from any number. Says the same thing people are saying here... “Not accepting calls from this number, try your call again later.” I troubleshooted the best I can and chatting with Verizon didn’t help. Can you help?

This is very troubling to hear, what troubleshooting have you completed. GenevieveB_VZW
