I'm using iOS8 Beta 4 on TMO and since I updated all of my phone calls go directly to VM. I'll receive a notification on the phone icon. Do not disturb isn't activated and call are not set to forward. Is anybody else seeing this issue? Is there a workaround?

I just called my cel from my work line and it went through fine.

I am on AT&T though....

This is happening with my phone too, but strangely it seems like the phone will ring of the call is coming from another iPhone. Need to do some more testing.

Keep me posted on what you find. Mine doesn't ring even if the call is from another iPhone.

Same here... I missed a FedEx package this morning and will need to go get it by car...

To all of those who say beta 4 is ready to be their main driver... :D

This type of issue was present in iOS 7 beta 3 I believe for quite a few people, although not everyone. It seemed to have gotten resolved in subsequent beta release and wasn't present anymore in later releases. Possibly some type of similar issue in play here as well.

KDP- How did you fix it? I'd rather not have to do a hard reset and start from scratch.

I'm on Rogers as well, and this just started happening with Beta 4.

My phone worked perfectly fine in previous Beta's (some lag when clicking on a contact to call though)... but now it goes straight to VM.

If anyone comes up with a fix, please let me know.

oh, and I'm using a 4s if that matters.

Call your carrier. I had my conditional call forwarding get goofy because of an app and AT&T straightened it out for me. My phone showed everything was properly set but it was not set that way on AT&T's side.

In fact, yes I've gotten this issue forever I think (since iOS 3), but it wasn't 100% of the time before. More like 2-3% of the time. But yesterday ? I missed all my phone calls.

I've also seen one person lately on Android reporting the same thing, 2-3% of the time. It's annoying that you pay hundreds for a flagship phone with all the latest technologies and the latest cellular network in the world, and you get this.

I have the same problem on Rogers in Canada. No issues on any of the previous betas.

I've had the same problem (T-Mobile US). I was able to get it working after individually deleting the Call Forwarding using the short codes: ##21#, ##61#, ##62#, ##67#.
##004# (cancel all forwarding) didn't work for me.

It had been fine up to B4.

Mark-I just did that and I'm still having the issue. Any other suggestions? I appreciate the steps you sent!

Having the same issue - all calls since Monday went straight to voicemail. B1 - b3 worked ok enough as daily driver but this is a deal breaker. I'll put this dev phone back into the drawer and use my main phone.

Looked into this further and it's an issue with iPhone Cellular Calling. You can disable it under FaceTime settings and set iPhone Cellular Calling which should fix the issue. Having it on causes calls to be routed right to voicemail.
