I am a Q Link Wireless customer

I can make phone calls and send text messages but I can only receive text messages I cannot receive any phone calls. This has been going on for approximately 3 to 4 weeks. How do I resolve this issue? It may have been something that I did on my phone in settings but I need to fix this. Please help and thank you

Nice to meet you, *****!
Did you receive any errors on your phone before the problem occurs?

I think I started receiving messages saying that my data level was low or something like that but I have unlimited data through Q Link. I think I went into my data settings and tried to fix it myself. I do not remember exactly what I did. Please help

Thank you!
Go to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Options > Activate LTE and deactivate LTE, 4G or 3G.
Check your phone's app settings to see if changing your phone's range will allow you to make incoming and outgoing calls.

I went to settings but I did not see anything that said cellular or cellular options. I cannot figure out where to find the LTE Choice menu choices
And I know I've seen it before

Did you follow the previous instructions?:)
Customer Reply
Yes like I said I went into my settings but did not find a category called cellular or cellular options. I know I've seen the LTE or LTE 3G or whatever before in passing but I can't remember where it is located in my settings menu.
So basically I did not get past step one of your instructions... go to settings

Okay I am at settings and my choices of categories are Networks, sound and notification, display and general
Samanta Jones

You need to choose "Cellular".
Could you see it?
Customer Reply
Those four categories have subcategories and none of those subcategories say cellular or cellular options
Would the category Network be considered cellular?

As I see, it chose right!
Try turning on airplane mode, wait 10 seconds and turn it off and try the network again.

I did what you said I turned airplane mode on waiting for probably like 2 or 3 minutes and then turned it back off and I went back to network and I don't know whether or not I can get phone calls in yet or not but if you want hold on about 2 more minutes I can give it a try and have my roommate call me

Yes... they just tried. It was a no go
Samanta Jones
Samanta Jones Tech Expert & Writer
I see.
Let us try next way:
The first step, after having restarted your phone, is to try to reset your network settings.
In the Settings > Backup and reset menu, select reset network settings.
How it goes?
Customer Reply
Okay hold on
