These steps help identify and resolve the underlying cause. After completing each step, test to see if the issue is fixed. If not, continue to the next step.

    2. If you're unable to complete the call, update the profile.
    3. Test your device to see if the issue is resolved.

  3. Verify if coverage is available at your current location.

    If your LG Rumor Touch has low signal strength, see if your location is within Sprint voice coverage on the Sprint coverage map.

  4. Perform a soft reset.

    A soft reset reconnects your LG Rumor Touch to the Sprint network.

    1. Press and hold the Power key to turn your LG Rumor Touch off.
