    Can you please give more details on your request ?

    Restart your phone
    1. Reboot (power cycle) your device by holding down the device’s start button for 10 seconds.
    2. After you reboot, your applications will reload. Your phone will then re-authenticate to the Fizz mobile network. This will allow your device to recover its authorization to access the network.
    Is call forwarding activated?
    1. Make sure call forwarding is not enabled on your device.
    2. The process will vary depending on your device. Here are two examples:
    3. Android: Open the phone app → Click on the three dots on the top right of the screen → Settings → More settings → Call forwarding
    4. iPhone: Settings → Telephone → Call forwarding
    5. You can cancel call forwarding on your phone by typing #21# on your phone’s keypad.
    Is call blocking activated?
    1. Make sure call blocking is not activated on your mobile device.
    2. The process of deactivating call blocking will vary depending on your device. Here are two examples:
    3. Android: Open the phone app → Tap the 3-dot icon (top-right corner) → Call settings → Reject calls
    4. iPhone: Settings → Phone → Call blocking and identification 
    5. Note: Some devices also have a feature that blocks anonymous calls. You can modify this option by following the same steps described above.
    Is the "Do not disturb" option active?
    1. Make sure the “do not disturb” option is deactivated on your phone.
    2. The process for deactivating the “do not disturb” option will vary depending on the type of phone you have. Here are two examples:
    3. Android: Slide your finger from the top to the bottom of the screen (Options panel) → Do not disturb
    4. iPhone: Settings → Do not disturb 
    5. Note: Depending on your phone model and operating system, the "do not disturb" option may completely reject calls, or it may mute ringtones and other audible alerts. Make sure you test your phone to find out how it handles “do not disturb”.
    Is your phone on the Fizz network?
    1. Make sure your device is configured to automatically select the Fizz mobile network. 
    2. IMPORTANT: Before starting this process, make sure the SIM card is inserted in your device. Otherwise, the Mobile networks menu will not be visible.
    3. The steps for enabling your device to automatically select a network varies depending on the type of phone. Here are two examples:
    4. Android: Settings → Connections → Mobile networks → Network operators → Search networks → Automatic/Fizz
    5. iPhone: Settings → Operators → Automatic/Fizz
    Test using a different mobile phone
    1. If possible, do a test using a different mobile phone.
    2. If you have access to a phone that is compatible with the Fizz mobile network, insert your Fizz SIM card into this phone and see if you can reproduce the problem. This will tell you if your phone is the source of the problem.
    1. Conversely, if you do not have access to another phone compatible with the Fizz network but do have access to another active Fizz SIM card with a plan that includes mobile data, insert this card into your phone.
    Is your number being transferred to Fizz?
    1. If your phone number is being transferred from your previous mobile service provider to Fizz, you may not be able to receive calls and text messages.
    2. It's possible that incoming calls and text messages are still being routed to the SIM card of your previous service provider even if some services are now fully functional on Fizz.
    3. Test incoming calls with the SIM card from your previous service provider. If it works, it's probably a portability issue with your mobile line.
    5. If necessary, consult the following troubleshooting sheet: I’m having problems transferring my current phone number to Fizz
