This article helps troubleshoot making or receiving calls on your Samsung Epic 4G.

You may have issues with calls if you have:
  • A low signal strength
  • Trouble to making or receiving calls
  • Frequently dropped calls

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.

  1. Verify airplane mode is turned off.

    Airplane mode is a feature that prevents your device from sending or receiving a wireless transmission.

    Turn airplane mode off.

  2. Verify your Samsung Epic™ 4G is connected to the Sprint network using Sprint Zone.

    Be sure your Samsung Epic 4G is connected to the Sprint voice network to make or receive calls.

    1. Access Sprint Zone.
    2. Tap Help.
    3. Tap I Need Help.
    4. This automatically checks the voice and data connections.
    5. If the voice connection fails, tap Update Profile.
    6. Test your device to see if the issue is resolved.

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

    If your Samsung Epic 4G 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 Samsung Epic 4G to the Sprint network.

    1. Press and hold the Power key to turn your Samsung Epic 4G off.
    2. Remove the battery. After 30 seconds, reinsert the battery.
    3. Press the Power key to turn your Samsung Epic 4G back on.
    4. Test your phone to see if the issue is resolved.

  5. Do you know if other Sprint customers are experiencing the same problem in the same location?

    • If yes or you don't know: Please contact Sprint Customer Care for help.
    • If no: Please find the nearest Sprint Repair center and schedule an appointment so a Sprint technician can further diagnose the issue.
