Anyone else having this issue? Whenever someone calls me, their call goes straight to voicemail. I have to constantly check my recent call list to see if I had any missed calls.

I've already tried rebooting phone and taking out sim card. Any other suggestions?

Interesting..glad I searched for this very question, am experiencing the same thing. I'm on AT&T, non-rooted, etc. For me it seems calls don't ring through if I'm using my Note 2. I've noticed it a few times in the last month, as calls have been picking up. Has happened twice today, and what I'm finding is that it rings through if the phone is idle, but if I'm reading something, surfing the web, anything, all of the sudden I get a missed call icon and a voicemail icon (if they leave one).

Will have to give AT&T a jingle and see whats up.

I am in Australia, and this is happening to my husbands Galaxy Note 2 as well. It is driving him crazy. He relies on this phone for his business. Customers call him, the phone does not ring, it goes straight to voice mail. Then because the customer cannot get him (he is an electrician), they go to the next ad in the paper and call someone else. Result: lost work.
Powering down the phone doesnt fix it, and it happens whether or not he is on another program like internet or email. I have been with him at night, with the phone on the table in front of us, and seen it light up with a missed call, yet it never rang!!
We took it into the shop we bought it from, and they said it was the internal aerial - they sent if off for repairs. After 3 weeks, we got phone back, it seemed to work good for about a month, but then the problem returned.
Our carrier is Telstra - the main carrier in Australia. Before that we were with Vodafone, and the problem was worse and the reason we changed to Telstra, thinking it was the carrier.
We are considering going over to an iphone, which for us is a major decision, as we hate Apple and refuse to have any apple products in our house!
Any advise would be appreciated.

I am having the same problem with my Galaxy S3, Rogers (In Canada) is my carrier.
I am sure it's not an app doing this to my phone because last night I had a call go straight to VM and so I tried to call from my land line and same thing, then called out on the cell phone which worked alright but right after that I called from my land line again and the phone rang. I had not used any apps in that time.

I'm having this issue also not just on one phone. I have had this problem recently on both a Samsung Note 3 and an LG G2 both on Rogers Wireless (Canada). I've read various posts etc online and others have said it might be an LTE network issue, or a 'bad app', or a problem with the sim card.

Anyone have any ideas???

To fix this on a Samsung Galaxy Trend phone...
tap 'phone'
tap 'menu'
tap 'call settings'
tap 'call forwarding'
tap 'voice call'
tap 'always forward' then 'disable'

I found out how to fix your problem. Turn off your Voice over LTE settings. It will be in call settings. I also had this problem. Now it is fixed. This phone is a Samsung Galaxy Light.

I had a same problem with Samsung Galaxy 5. You need to take following steps:
1. Go to Settings
2. Click on blocking mode
3. If you see ticked in block incoming calls, disable notification please clear it and you will get incoming calls.
Good luck!!!

not sure if this will help, but I think the

Motions and gestures setting was sending my email to a premature voice mail hell.

The "mute/pause" gesture was turned on and I think my hand, moving to answer the call was pausing the phone and sending it into voice mail.

My wife's note 3 is doing this when she is connected to the bluetooth in the car. Anyone have this issue? I will try these fixes that are posted.

I tried all of the solutions on this page that seemed close to what my phone showed. Frustrating. My final (because it solved the problem) solution was; go to the green phone symbol, recent (calls), find a call that didn't go through, touch it, go up to the vertical 3 dots on the screen's top right corner, press them, a list is presented, last on the list is "remove from reject list".

I pressed that and the phone started receiving calls from that number.

Hope that works!

To reject calls, just do the opposite...or the universe (chaos) will do it for you. LOL

Hi.. My fiance has the same problem. Whoever calls him, call goes straight to voice mail after like 5 seconds. He has Samsung galaxy s6. He contacted service provider, changed the SIM to a brand new one, contacted Samsung Tech Support, but nothing changed.

I have the same issue. I have the S6 edge. Apparently we found out that it only does it if my phone is on vibrate. And my carrier said to wait for an update to see if it changes.
