    Hello,

    Couldn't find anything similar in the forum so I thought to start a new thread;

    I've noticed that my iPhone 4 drop calls much more often when I have wi-fi activated! Has anyone else noticed that???

    dropped calls ipohne 4 with wifi

    i think it depends on modem maybe. I have a d-link dir-825 dual band 2.4/5 ghz and i only drop calls when wifi is on and connected. i am going to try a dir-615 and see what happens. if anyone else has same routers or suggestions let me know

    I am having the same issue. My incoming calls do not make it to my phone, I hear it ring once and then the call is dropped. This happens when my WiFi is on.

    The best thing I can say to do is to take your device into apple and get another one. This doesn't happen for me, in fact I'm on a call while on wi-fi typing this out.

    No, not happening here either. That is definitely not normal behavior.

    Try resetting network settings first and if that doesn't work try restoring the phone as new. If the issue persists, then it's time to get a hardware replacement from Apple.

    Agreed, this is not normal behavior. The frequencies are different enough that you shouldn't see a 2.4Ghz/5Ghz device mess with a 800Mhz/1900Mhz device.

    There are possibilities, but none of them are common enough to be likely.
