When you call granny, does she keep saying "Huh?! Wut?!" or does the conversation flow pretty well? Rate this thread to express how you feel about the Samsung Galaxy S9's call quality. A higher rating indicates that calls are clear and crisp, and that regardless of background noise, you can hear the other party clearly (and with ample volume) and they can hear you.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

My calls stay connected by go silent after a short period. Sometimes it returns for a few seconds then goes quiet again

Odd the one thing that I expect a phone todo is make phone calls

Neither are active or even available as it's a sim free phone and those functions only work on a phone provided by the network

I had the same problem with my new S9 in Australia. While I was talking on a call minute or so it would go silent for the other party for about 6 seconds then come back. I had only had the phone for 5 days so took it back to Harvey Norman. After checking with their Samsung Franchisee, they exchanged the phone but only because it was less than 15 days from purchase. Still testing the replacement.

My wife and I each bought a new Samsung S9 phone on March 16 at an Xfinity Mobile store near Boston. Both phones were activated with new SIM cards. Both phones experience random "dead air" lasting from three to 10 seconds during a call. This is very annoying. We have turned off VoLTE calling and Global Networks in settings. No difference.

Now waiting for Samsung's firmware update and hoping this will fix the problem.

I have tried 3 Galaxy S9s over six weeks. All 3 have had multiple intermittent silences of about 6 seconds each during calls. I MAY have a workaround for Australians. I have changed service provider to Telstra (Instead of an Aldimobile) with VOLTE OFF for my SIM#.
On Day 2 with NO call drops or silences so far. SEEMS that the network Telstra rent to AldiMobile in Australia is incompatible with the Samsung Galaxy S9 as may be other networks reported:

SILENCES ON S9 CALLS REPORTED ON THESE NETWORKS:
Australia (Woolworths, Telechoice, Vodafone with VOLTE on, Aldimobile)
UK (EE, Sky, Vodafone, Three)
India (Vodafone, Airtel, Idea, Jio),
Ireland (EE)
NZ (Spark)
Belgium (Proximus)
Italy (Windtre)
Poland (?)
Spain (?)
US (TMobile, Verizon Wireless CDMA)
Jordan (?)
Russia (?)

NO SILENCE IN CALLS PROBLEM SO FAR:
Australia (Telstra with Volte OFF)

Please add your country and service provider to the appropriate list if you are (or are not) having the same problem with your new S9.

I have not had any problems with calls on my S9 so far. I am on the MetroPCS network in the USA. MetroPCS uses the same network as TMobile.
Have had multiple 30 minute and longer phone calls without any dead air.
