Nothing coming through on phone

For a month now, my daughter has not been able to send or get messages. She has also not had her phone ring when called. The bill has been paid on time. It shows a signal and she is also still connected to our WiFi. I have tested it multiple times. I have called her while sitting next to her and it not ring on her phone. I have sent messages that went through on my side, but she doesn’t get. She has also tried sending me messages which never come in. I have emailed GABB support with this problem and have not gotten any reply. If it isn’t going to work when I need it then I want to cancel before next bill. Anyone had this problem and if so what was done to fix it?

    This happened to my childs phone. The customer service reprovisioned ours too and it worked after that.

    I left my kid home alone for the first time and his phone wouldn’t let him call anyone and I couldn’t call him. It was awful and he was terrified. Can’t get anyone to chat or respond to my concerns to fix it. I’m sooooooo unimpressed by this phone!

    My daughter has repeatedly had this problem- the phone and text services not working- on and off for several months. We have had the customer service reps reprovision the line repeatedly and it usually helps, but only temporarily. They have done several other things and the issue remains unresolved. We have several times when my daughter was unable to contact me, or I her, for hours at a time. Things get fixed temporarily, but then it suddenly stops working again- sometimes at very upsetting times when she really needed her phone. But even when I am able to reach a customer service rep, it can sometimes take days to get that temp fix and we are without service in the meantime.

    There must be something more that can be done so that my daughter can have reliable phone service.

    Hi @OliveMom,
