phone is not ringing for incoming calls - going straight to voicemail

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen


Since yesterday my phone has not been ringing when I have an incoming call. It is going straight to voicemail. I am able to make outgoing calls. I've tried powering my phone off and the issue persists. I am receiving text alerts and there is not problem with the volume or sound. I am paid up on my account. Help!

70challenger: Did you try testing the sim in another phone and back?

@elanastacey on the post that you marked as soon. On the right of the post you'll see what looks sorta like little arrow pointing down. Click that then click not the solution.

My mom had the same issue with her phone yesterday, and the only way we were able to resolve it was to pop the SIM out put it in another phone and then put it back in, which worked for her to get incoming calls. However we had left several test voicemails and when we call into voicemail it says there are no messages so now we have the calling resolve but not the voicemail issue. I have sent a PM in and will post when I hear a reply

Thanks @swasnea  for confirming this works.  This seems to be a big issue for many users lately

Great news, everyone – my service was restored. I started a ticket and heard back right away from a CSA. The problem is with Telus and many PM customers in BC effected. I'm receiving calls again, woohoo! Thanks to you all for your suggestions. Sometimes there truly is nothing that can be done other than opening a ticket I guess!
