My phone has been doing this...i do have message+ on another device but the device battery has been dead for two weeks so I'm not sure why it's giving me the option to pull the call when the call was initiated and made solely on this phone?
I have the same problem and have read all of these responses. I tried disabling and removing Verizon messages from my tablet first. That did not stop the remote call issue from happening to my phone. My second effort was to go to settings on my phone, advanced calling, and turn it off. I just tested it and that option seemed to have worked. I am following this thread so I can find out when they get this bug fixed.
This issue is caused by the message integration for the Message+ app. Have message integration turned off by Verizon and the issue will go away. It's a known issue by Verizon. When it's disconnected you'll get a pop-up warning saying you've been disconnected and if you want to reconnect, tap on no and your good to go.
Hello to all having this issue, to fix this annoying remote call from popping up call customer service (not tech support) and ask them to remove the advance calling feature service, keep it disabled for bout an hour before reactivating it, restart your phone and then activate it again. good luck!
I had Verizon turn off message integration, not advanced calling features, which were, and still are, turned on, and the remote call feature was disabled. I now do not have this issue anymore. P.S. This issue is only happening with people using both the stock dialer and the Message + app on Verizon's system.
I just had this happen and I think I know what it is. I restarted my phone today and never unlocked it. So actually it shouldn't allow you to answer your phone unless you type in your password on the first time after it's been restarted. Yet; I have my iPad and my laptop both running and they are authorized to answer with out a passcode until I restart them. So I'm thinking the only reason it allowed me to answer the call was because of the "remote" device + wifi calling. Just another way that is suppose to make things easier and just makes things more confusing. So in otherwords, if you loose your phone or it's stolen, log out of your ipad and anything else your phone is connected to after you send out the power down command through google.
I have been fighting the same issue for 2 weeks. Stopped by a Verizon store (not corporate owned) and was told it was my voice recorder app that had been working properly for more than a year. Wrong. Spent 1.5 hours on phone with level 2 tech support. They had me boot to safe mode to disable all apps, same issue. They connected to phone remotely and saw it happen. No solutions.
It was was a big issue for me because all my calls come from my Ring Central account and I need to touch 1 on my dial pad to accept a call. With the dial pad covered by this screen, I was missing calls until I discovered the back button would clear the "pull" screen.
This thread SOLVED the problem for me. I turned OFF advanced calling.

So the only answer is to disable the function for "advanced calling" ? So now we can't use the function of video calling, because it is some how linked to this "remote calling" ? This doesn't seem like an appropriate response. Is this being looked into?
No other options at this time according to both Samsung and Verizon. Spent
2 hours on the phone with them and they had me try everything from removing
programs to disabling programs to backend shutting things down to doing a
hard reset and still nothing worked.
I do not have my phone connected to any other devices and yet it still does
this every time. They said they are looking for a resolve and I have left
it on and found a way to work-around it till an update occurs. Absolutely
ridiculous and horrible for my business...
Good job Verizon!!!! [removed]!
