Received Calls "Call Failed" issues Please Help.

Recent Xfinity Mobile subscriber and ported 2 numbers from AT&T with iPhone 6s.  I live in a Houston suburb HOA where Cell Towers are not allowed so very weak cell signal in my home and previously used an AT&T Microcell booster to have good reception in house.  Now with Xfinity Mobile the booster no longer works so I need to rely on WiFi calling to ensure strong coverage within my home. 

 

The Issue:

 

I would say on about 25% of all incoming calls when I try to answer the call it prompts "Call Failed" and sends the incoming call to Voicemail.  This could occur repeatedly where my wife called 3 times straight all with the same issue.  No problems with me hitting the call back button and reaching her.  I have very strong wifi signal and download 70 mbps and upload 7 mbps, ping 12 ms.  Seems to be only an issue when I am using Wifi Calling as I have never had the issue outside of my home.

 

Question:

1) Is Comcast aware of this issue and working on a resolution?

2) I can't imagine an easy fix on my end but please advise if there are any router settings that I would need to modify?  I a Netgear AC1750 Model R6400 Router.

3) I read that Xfinity "piggybacks" on Verizon so could I buy a Verizon cell booster for my home?  Verizon said I couldn't because I don't have a Verizon number that I could register.  My brother has Verizon I don't know if I could buy a booster put it on his account and then add my Xfinity Mobile number as a "boosted number".

 

Please advise as I have been actually recommending Xfinity Mobile to others but getting reluctant with these consistant "Call Failed" issues.

 

Thanks!

nich0142, that's correct, we do not have compatibility with boosters or extenders at this time. 

 

A Verizon cell booster would not be compatible either. I got your private message and will help troubleshoot your issues with Wifi calling there.
