    I can no longer make calls to a specific phone number with my cell phone (I also can't make calls to this number with my wife's cell phone). My wife and I both have service through AT&T and the number I am trying to call is through Verizon but I have tried another phone with service through AT&T and I was able to make a call to the Verizon phone. I can text the Verizon phone and I can also receive calls and texts from it on my phone. Any ideas about what the problem could be?

    Welcom to the forums.

    Do you believe that whoever owns the phone number has any reason to block your attempts to call them?

    No, it's actually my sons phone. His aunt put him on her plan as a christmas gift a few years ago and we haven't had any problems until now.

    I would check with your sister(in-law) to have her verify that numbers are being allowed to contact this number, of you haven't already done so. Have you alerted your carrier as well?

    It seems as though it was an issue with one of our carriers. It lasted for a day or two and then it was back to normal. I haven't had an issue since.

    Have you tried removing the +1 before the phone number?

    I am having this very same issue. The number I'm having an issue with is the most called/most important number in my phone. This is a problem that I can't seem to find a solution to. Has anyone figured out what is causing this issue?

    Very similar problem.
    I have a Nokia 8 on Oreo 8.1. Since the past 2 months I am facing the same problem. I am unable to call my wife's number. She is with the same service provider, Vodafone. I can get her calls but cannot call her. Get a message "Server unreachable". The funny thing is that suddenly it starts working and stops on its own.
    Checked with the service provider - no blocked or blacklisted number. We took out the sim from my phone and put it on a different phone and then I was able to call her. Put back the sim into my phone and once again, the same problem. So it is clear that the problem is with my Nokia 8. What can I do to solve this issue?

    I am having this exact same problem. I can ring my partner but when he tries to ring me it goes straight to voicemail. But he can txt me fine. We are both on Vodafone and no problems with phoning or receiving phone calls off any other numbers. We've both checked and his numbers not blocked or anything on my phone. Has anybody got any answers?

    Thanks for the advice. My problem was also exactly same but your trick worked. I removed the country code and called, it worked. Thanks again.

    If anyone is still having this issue, I have a Samsung S8 and experienced the same. I tried everything but finally found something that worked for my phone. I went to "settings" and then "connections." Then I found"mobile networks" and "VoLTE calls" was enabled. I disabled it (just switch off the toggle) and I could make the call. I then enabled it and could still make the call so perhaps there was a glitch of some kind?

    Hopefully this helps as it was hugely frustrating.

    Update: It was definitely the VoLTE calls. I have to leave it disabled to be able to call that number. If I enable it the call does not go through.

    husband was having the same issue when calling me after son installed an update. we're both on Sprint. tried all quick fixes & only toggling "airplane mode" on & off worked, tho problem started again minutes later and toggling "AM" no longer worked. finally, after reading everything I could I came across the last hint here...to remove the +1 from my number. it worked! now we have to figure out why all my calls to him are going to voicemail.
