Cannot call a certain sprint number

Every time I call this number it does not ring at all, it just echoes. I can text and FaceTime but I cannot call them. They can call me but my calls won’t go through to them. We have checked the do not disturb feature as well as the blocking feature and none of them are on. We have also deleted our contacts on each other’s phone to see if that helped and it didn’t. We have updated and restarted our phones as well and still nothing. We both have iPhones but different carriers. I called in and asked if there was a block error and there isn’t any.

Did you ever resolve this issue? I am having the exact same problem. My friend's AT&T phone (iPhone) is unable to call my iPhone (Sprint) and the echo symptom is the same. Also can text and I can call her. She can Facetime Audio & Video call me. We've updated phones. I've completely restored and reactivated my phone, reset network settings, etc. There are no blocks anywhere.
