    Another iPhone 12 Pro issue to add to the list

    Bear7962....I thank you very much for your ideas and input. And I really don't mean to be negative with those that have posted replies to try to help me out...it is appreciated. But to answer your questions directly, when I go to Setting...Messages, well there are a lot of things on that...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    xrayeyes...it is not the carrier because we are talking about two different carriers and if we are the only ones having problems with each of those carriers, I do no think it's them...that leaves one thing....the phones.

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    Thank you but Wi-Fi is not affecting the issue. When it does this, I can turn off Wi-Fi completely and I still have a dot, no bars.

    Another iPhone 12 Pro issue to add to the list

    Hi...my previous discussion about the iPhone 12 Pro resulted in lots of suggestions and blaming either Verizon, Spectrum Mobile or Apple and each saying it's the others fault resulted in no resolution. So now I have another issue. iPhone 12 Pro...this has happened about 4 times in the last...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    And since there is no Apple store within 150 miles of me, that's a bit of a mute point. And since Apple techs say it's the carriers fault and both Verizon and Spectrum Mobile say it's the phones fault...we're stuck with crappy phones that are 50% useless. And it's actually 4 phone (my...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    Wi-Fi calling is on....because we not only don't have good cell service at our house and because why should I pay for Wi-Fi in my house and can't use it? So to switch them would mean I would have a boat anchor at home because there is no cell service. And when it does it when I have cell...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    Thanks for the reply, but I did state in my issue above that my daughter and her husband have VERIZON for their service and theirs does it just as much, if not more than ours. So switching carriers doesn't do any good if we are dealing with two different carriers, but yet the same iPhone 12...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    MaryBethRaven, No, the issue has not been resolved and doubt it ever will. Our issue happen not only when we have good signal strenght in many places but the bad part, it happens too frequently when we are on WiFi, which makes no sense. Once our contract is up on this phone (we lease through...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    Thank you for all the info, but I (and wife and daughter and hubby) have never had phone issues like this. We've all had Apple phones for years and this just seems to be an issue with the 12 pro & pro max. Apple and others from this and other forums have talked about a lot of things to do but...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    Then yes, that was done during many of the processes with Spectrum Tech support. I wasn't sure how you were saying to 'back it up'.

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    I don't know what you mean by 'back ups? They were brand new shipped from either Spectrum or Verizon. Individually the phones were put next to the phone they were replacing and 'copied' over to the new phone. Prior phones (as stated before) didn't have this issue so I can''t see that...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    I would 'somewhat' agree but 2 phone are in one county in Michigan, two are in another. One using Spectrum Mobile and one using Verizon. All 4 of us previously had iPhones (we had x and other two were 8) and none of them ever did this. And even though it shows we are on wi-fi...the phones...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    Yes, through this, or another forum, someone from Apple contacted me. The problem is sporadic and hasn't done it again that we have seen...as we don't stare at it all day. We only notice it when we go to use it. We are trying to narrow it down but getting nowhere with that. Since it's two...

    iPhone showing dots instead of service 'bars' Can't call out or receive calls

    Hi...my wife and I have the iPhone 12 pro and our service is through Spectrum, which uses Verizon lines (we've been told that by both Verizon and Spectrum). Anyway, phones are on wi-fi calling but at times we get 4 dots instead of any 'reception/service' indicator bars at the top right of the...

    Texting via my car

    No...don't have an Apple store within 150 miles, besides, I don't yet have an Iphone, I"m looking at purchasing one which is why I asked that initial question on this post. I have an issue with a Samsung Galaxy S6, so for that phone, I do have to go to a Verizon store or deal with Verizon...

    Texting via my car

    Thank you...I did not take it as sacastic at all because to me the Galaxy is a joke anyway. But yes, I have tried that, had the Verizon saleperson (who has the same phone) come out to my car and show me how it works but it did not work the way it was intended. Honestly I think there is an...

    Texting via my car

    I've had a windows phone for years, made the mistake of buying a Samsung S6 when Verizon decided not to carry quality Windows phones anymore, and I do NOT like the S6 at all. I"m going to get rid of it very soon and am looking at the Iphone 6S. My car radio would alert me when I had a text...
