5g update on note 9 making wifi calling not work


5g update on note 9 making wifi calling not work

I live in an area where I don't get good service. I rely on my wifi calling for calls and texts. Ever since I did the 5g software update wifi calling doesn't work properly and I can't make calls unless i walk into my drive way. My internet is fine I can use the internet great but not receive or make calls in my home or texts. I called AT&T and they said there is no outages in my area and since this is a new phone I got two weeks ago it may be the update. Please help me figure this out. It's awful. If I get an important call what do I do? It says wifi calling is on and everything. I can use everything else on the internet... I've had my note 9 almost 2 weeks. Update happened about 3 days ago right when this issue started. My phone works fine when I leave my area and I dont need wifi calling.

Hello @donnalynch92,


We understand the importance to stay connected and would like to help! If you would like to use the Wi-Fi calling feature, we recommend keeping your device on airplane mode as this will prevent your phone from connecting to the network. 


Let us know if you have any further questions!
