    Why is that I am not able to make calls using my android phones?

    Calls are not going through from my android phone and it is showing some ID error. How can I set a default caller ID on my android phone?

    You will not be able to make calls on your android phone if the caller ID is changed on your android phone. This is one reason why you are not able to make calls using your android phone. To set the caller id as default, you need to follow some simple steps. First, you need to tap on menu from the home screen. There you will find an option called Network settings. There you will find an option called Caller Id. There you should select the option called Default. And then tap on the option called Save.

    The error is occurring due to the reason of a change in the Caller ID. In order to rectify the error follow the steps.
    Navigate to settings->Call settings and then scroll down to find an option as "Additional settings" select that and change the Caller ID to network defaults. Also please note that changing the default settings will cause you problems like this.
    Hope this Helps.

    Re: Why is that I am not able to make calls using my android phones?

    If you are unable to make call in your android smart phone, make sure the Caller ID is set to default.

    If the caller ID is not set properly, you'll not be able to make calls.

    To change the Caller ID, do the following--->

    1. Go to Settings.

    2. Select Call Settings.

    3. Press Additional Settings.

    4. Set Caller ID to Network Default.


    You will not have any problem now.


    If the problem persists, perform a Factory Data Reset.

    To do a Factory Data Reset,

    1. Got to Settings.

    2. Select Privacy.

    3. Press Factory Data reset.

    4. Press reset phone.

    Please backup your important data in the phone memory before doing a Factory Data Reset.

    Dear..

    As you shared your problem, it means the problem is related to your ID which is changed by some one.
    In my opinion, you need to make a Factory Reset and if you do not wish to do so, then follow these steps which help you to make calls from android devices.
    Here we go:-

    1. Go to Menu first.
    2. Now select the Network setting option.
    3. Here you get a Caller ID Menu.
    4. Now enter in this and select or choose default ID.
    5. Now press the save button and enjoy making calls everywhere.

    Thanks
