Moto G Power (2020) Phone App/Calling Randomly Stops Working

Hi everyone. I have a 2020 Moto G Power that uses the Verizon LTE network but is unlocked and on a Straight Talk plan. I bought it used and it has Android 11 on it. Build number is RPMS31.Q1-54-13-6 and is all stock, but it just had a security update overnight, so not the same that i’ve been having the issue on.

The problem I’m having with the phone is that I noticed that calling will randomly not work. I’ll try to make a call, there will be no audible sounds on the handset like the normal ringing or anything, and the call will just hang up after a few seconds. I’ve been fixing it temporarily by rebooting the phone and it starts working after it comes up.

The issue appears to be either with the whole phone, or just the Phone app/calling in general. I only ever checked the calling function before trying to mitigate it with a reboot.

Has anybody heard of this kind of issue, know what might be causing it, or know any steps to troubleshoot it or permanently fix it?

Sharing is caring!
