Hello. Maybe someone seen something similar and has a solution.

My Note 3 immediately drops all signal to almost nothing the moment WiFi connects. Where I am, I have 4 bars with LTE on. Once I enable WiFi and connect to AP, signal goes to zero bars.

Initially I thought it's cosmetic. But after some testing, I realized that it is not. About 40% of all calls go to voicemail. When I do get a call that comes through, if it's HD voice, I sound to them like latest T-Pain's album, like I am being auto-tuned. When it's not HD voice, it's simply breaking up.

WiFi calling does not kick in.

And weirdly enough, it's happening to my girlfriend's Nexus 5, also on T-Mobile.

Stock rooted.
Baseband N900TUVUBMI7
Kernel 3.4.0-1670611

SIM and region unlocked with Chainfire's utility.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There was a thread in here about that, from what I read when you turn on wifi the data pretty much shuts off as far as 4g/lte. This is how it comes out of the box, a least for 4.3 I'm sure is the same on 4.4. Will look later on tapatalk and searching sucks.

I figured the mobile data will be pretty much disabled. But that does not explain why voice problems would pop up.

See my post at the end of this thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9#post50514889). It should solve the problem.

Awesome, that worked right away. No more robotic sounding, breaking up calls.

Now I need to find out why it's happening on my gf's Nexus 5, which does not have WiFi calling.
