Update 1 (December 18, 2023)

05:50 pm (IST): By looking at the recent reports, it appears that some Pixel 7 users are experiencing call drops even after installing the December 2023 update. Not even swapping the old SIM card with a new one could help resolve the problem.

Original story follows:

The recently launched Pixel 7 series is filled with efficiency-enhancing Google intelligence.

The newest Android smartphones also bring some noteworthy hardware and software-related updates.

However, we recently highlighted how multiple Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro users reported cellular connectivity issues.

Google Pixel 7 dropping calls

Google Pixel 7 owners are now reporting an issue where their calls keep disconnecting after every 3 seconds.


Hi, Pixel 7 pro calls are dropping after every 3 seconds , tried everything, disabled 2G , disabled automatic network select

always get Call Ended, after one ring to to called number. It happens with about 50% of the calls I make. Fault is with the Pixel 7Pro, I know that. Have done erything asked of me, including a factory reset.

According to reports, Pixel 7 devices are abruptly dropping both incoming and outgoing calls.

Those affected have tried disabling 2G and automatic network selection but to no avail.

The issue is quite alarming as Pixel 7 users may potentially find themselves helpless during emergency situations as the calling feature appears to be an unreliable one.

Potential workaround

Google hasn’t said anything about the issue where Pixel 7 keeps dropping calls every now and then.

However, we have come across a workaround that can help fix the issue. You can check it out in the screenshot attached below:


i had this problem yesterday, i just restarted the phone and it worked

We hope the team finds out the root cause behind the problem and fixes it at the earliest.

We’ll keep tabs on this issue and update this story to reflect noteworthy information.
