UNABLE TO CONNECT, CALL DROPS, POOR CONNECTION - WHILE ON WIFI

This (Edited per community guidelines) service has only gotten worse. Seems to occur in the late afternoons. Suspect when traffic increases (less bandwidth). Not my ISP. Reset Network Settings does NOTHING. Can't even make or receive calls, it just hangs and then drops ("Call Failed"). Made many complaints to AT&T AND ZERO IMPROVEMENT. Even when the call connects, the call won't last without dropping. Problem is not the phone. It's the service. I have a 5G phone, but there's no 5G service in my area.

No. Cox Communications. I can't even get ahold of customer service. The keys aren't even being recognized when I press them. Then the call just drops. WTF is going on?

How does that help me?

Is there some way to send emails to customer service?? Calling is a joke, the hold times are unacceptable!

No there is no email address. If the service is not working for you, it is your responsibility to find a provider that does.

Intermittent loss of service has only gotten worse in my area. Outgoing calls will not connect, and the the call fails, have to repeatedly call before I get a ring. Dropped calls have increased. Callers can't hear me, etc. This all started getting worse in the last couple weeks. Only occasional loss of service before this. I call customer service and all they can offer is a credit since I am paying for service I am not getting.

Has nothing to do with AT&T your isp provides the router and your service. The Wi-Fi calling is carried over Cox not AT&T. AT&T doesn’t manufacture the the phone either so why would you think AT&T has a responsibility?

Ok, but I've had no issues with my ISP, no service drops, download speed is 600+ mbps. I've called Cox a million times over this and they say everything is fine on their end. ATT reps says same thing. No one wants to take the blame.

Hard to say. It seems to work fine when I'm outside my home where i make most of my calls. It's an area that is notorious for lack of cell towers for decades. But I haven't ever seen it this bad.
