can't make outgoing calls...

When I dial a number, it says dialling and then immediately, call ended. Suggestions anyone? Texting and incoming calls work fine :smileysad:

Re: can't make outgoing calls...

Hi pal, I solved the problem temporaily.

 

Apparently, I went into settings > applications > phone and changed show phone number to my contacts, it worked. Once the call is made, the setting would go back to show phone number to everyone and it wouldn't work anymore. It's like having to manually change the setting every time which is silly.

Hi ipodee,

 

Thank you for solution. It seems it depends on mobile operator and the phone doesn't check if it is allowed to hide caller ID. In my case I switched the mode to "Show my caller ID to my contacts only". I could call to contacts from the address book, but couldn't to anybody else. Android phone for the same operator just disable this option... To fix the problem in my case you need:

 

1. Ope Phone Application

2. Tap '...', Select "call settings"

3. Set "Show my caller ID" to "my contacts"

4. Set "Show my caller ID" to "everyone"

5. Press back

Re: can't make outgoing calls...

Help this solution does not work for me! 

 

Tried altering settings, resetting, rebooting, tried my sim in another phoneit  works fine.  Have always had Nokia phones, but this Lumia 800 one has to the worst ever.  I have had it a week, but I'm wishing I had gone with another brand......

 

Basically, I have a phone that doesn't phone....great. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated

Re: can't make outgoing calls...

I had same problem after I started Lumia 800 within 4 to 5 days. I was unable to make outgoing calls. Whenever attempted it was ending immediately. SIM card worked well in another phone.

THANKS A LOT FOR THIS SOLUTION.

In call setting I first changed Show my caller ID to  "everyone" to "my contacts" and again reverted to "everyone".

The problem was solved and I was able to make outgoing calls.

Re: can't make outgoing calls...

Hi,

I have major problem with my new Lumia 1020. I had to make a call with unknown user ID. I was unable to find the section hide my caller ID from the phone settings.

 

So I put *31* and #31# in front of the call (tried to make call two times and used these two different combinations: *31* the first time and #31# the second time).

 

Then a text appreared on the screen: Singtel (name of the operator and I'm based in Singapore) and succesfull.

 

Since that I've been unable to make any outbound calls. When I make the call, it will immediately after say: Call ended (before I hear any dialling tone or anything)

 

SMS and web  word normally and I can also take incoming calls.

 

I have tried to reset the phone but nothing seems to work. I've been also reading previous posts about how I should go to phone setting and tap the three dots and then choose show caller ID. The problem is that when I go to phone setting and select the three dots I only get the following options to choose from:

 

Voicemail number

CAll forwarding (on / off)

Text reply (on/off)

International assist (on/off)

Sim security (on/off)

Fixed dialling (FDN) (On/off)

 

I can't believe this is happening. I have had so many problems with the phone ... bad connectivity, crashing etc. that this really is the last straw.

 

Please help me, I really don't know what to do!


Thanks!
