Default No sound during calls....anyone else?

Just recently I've had a new issue (2 times) with my Verizon S4. Both times happened when at/leaving work. At times I have no service at work....then when I go outside or move to another area inside where there is service I get no sound when making a call either to another phone or voicemail. It'll show that the call connected with timer counting up but I hear nothing....then after a little bit the call disconnects by itself. While it was acting up I tried calling my cell from a landline & it would ring....I answer it & hear nothing on my cell and on the landline I hear no voice coming from my cell. Then if I restart the device everything works fine. Today when it happened I tried turning on airplane mode then turning it off....didn't help. I had to do another restart then ur worked fine. Anyone else experience this lately?

If you updated to android 4.4.2 then there's not much that can be done. As that's one of the Android 4.4.2 bugs on the S4. And until Android decides to fix it the only alternative is to swap out your phone for a replacement with your carrier in hopes the issue doesn't follow you.

That's a very sweeping statement for all the 60 million Samsung Galaxy S4 handsets on the 250+ firmware releases worldwide for Android 4.4.2 that do not have this issue and for whom it is not a known bug.

There are known issues that the companies are admitting to and then there are the ones they aren't. There are headsets that are effected and headsets that aren't.

Go ahead and be a Samsung/Android fanatic, but for those people having the problems give them a break. And stop trolling people that actually invested the time trying to solve the issues unless you have a solution.

This is not an across the board Android 4.4.2 bug. Otherwise all Android phones worldwide, irrespective of manufacturer and model, would suffer from this.It is not even a Samsung TouchWiz version of Android 4.4.2 bug as it does not affect the overwhelming majority of S4 phones. This is limited to certain carrier branded firmware only.

Certainly not, "trolling". Merely stating the fact that this is not, as you stated, an Android 4.4.2 bug...

It is not down to Android, or Samsung for that matter, to fix carrier firmware.
