We're sorry but the number you have dialed has calling restrictions which prevents the call from being completed Announcement 19

I haven't been able to make any outbound calls since yesterday. I have been on the phone with Xfinity mobile and troubleshooting all these steps to no avail. Nothing is working and apparently there are alot off users with the same problems. Even before that I was having trouble making calls and receiving a different but similar error message. They had me switch to WiFi calling and allow roaming but nothing helped. This is very frustrating and I'm thinking about switching back to Verizon as this is ridiculous

I had this problem on iPhone X when initially ”resolved itself”  after few days. A week later it started again. For 2 weeks I have spoken to and repeatedly performed the network reset. Phone calls and chats have disconnected. I’ve spent hours and hours. I received new SIM card today but still happening. 😢

Oh no! Extremely sorry to hear that you are having this issue and unable to find a solution. I greatly hope that we would be able to get you in touch with one of our specialists to resolve this hiccup. I see that you have had problems communicating with this team but wanted to provide their direct phone. We unfortunately over this channel would not be able to work on Xfinity Mobile issues but I truly have extremely high confidence our mobile specialists will sort this out. Their direct number would be (888) 936-4968.

I was having this exact issue for the past 5 days. Make sure your phone is updated to latest software. Go to Settings -> Cellular -> Cellular Data Options -> Make sure roaming is on and LTE is enabled. Toggle the LTE thing and restart the phone. I was on a call with Xfinity for quite a while and this eventually did the trick for me. Somehow with an outage, software update, or changing the SIM card my LTE had turned off and needed a reset. Hope this works for you too.

I have the same issue. Haven't been able to make a call since Wednesday. They initially told me there was an outage, but then I called back Friday and they said the outage was over and it should be fixed. They did a ticket for my phone and said it could take up to 72 hrs for them to fix. Still nothing..

I am also having this issue. I just switched from Verizon to Xfinity last week. Not a good start. I am unable to call customer service as my phone will not make outgoing calls. I have tried the chat but my question has not even been acknowledged. Very frustrating

Please stop telling people to call when your IVR won't give you an agent no matter what you do.  What options do I select to get an agent. EVERY time I call, the system tells me it is going to reboot my internet modem and then tells me to call back once the reboot is complete.  It has done this 5x now and I CANNOT get an agent.  VERY frustrating.

Same issue for more than a month. Have been unable to call back for doctor’s appointments and other important phone calls. After spending literal hours with tech support online, I’ve reset my phone countless times (which conveniently disconnects me from the chat), tried a new SIM and tried updating my phone but with no luck. I went to an Xfinity store and the rep there said there is nothing they can do as it’s an issue across hundreds of phones that have been ported over from Verizon. Essentially my phone is a small iPad at this point. Since my previous phone is in trade-in limbo, I’m not sure if I can go back to Verizon or I would have done it in an instant. I have never experienced anything this level of incompetence by a carrier. Why claim to allow number portability when the number won’t work?

Got 2 new android Moto 5g phones today and switched from Verizon at the xfinity store. One phone worked, the other will not dial out. After 2 calls, (1st got disconnected while I was on hold) and the 2nd call was escalated to someone who corrected it on their system and assured me this will never happen again. Good luck people!!!!!!!

I'm having this same issue. I upgraded my son's phone about 2 weeks ago, and still to this day he cannot make outgoing phone calls. Why am I paying for service that I cannot use? He just started in the military, and is on a new base, and is unable to call ANYONE. I have been on countless calls and texts with Xfinity Mobile to get it resolved and I keep getting told wait another 48 hours, wait another 48 hours. This is ridiculous!!

I was finally able to get this fixed. I tried the chat...nothing worked...I tried calling the main number....took over an hour and still nothing. FYI - it is not your SIM card. No need to replace that.

As others have stated, you need to call in to get this fixed.

I went to the Xfinity store by my house and the guy gave me this number which is to their "Tier tech support". After entering some info I was able to speak to a person and they fixed it in about 5 minutes....a few of whcih was taken by me resetting my phone.

The number is [Edited: "Personal Information"]. I then had to enter a store number, which for me was One, Seven, One, Three.

Then they ask for your account number. Then, after describing in detail the issue, they fixed it almost immediately.

Hope this helps. What a frustrating experience!

Glad you were able to get this fixed. From the research I did when it first happened it seemed as though many people were experiencing this. Why doesn't Xfinity trickle down this fix to their lower tech support? Typical horrible tech support.

I am having the same problem. Was on the phone with a number of them for a few hours.  Nothing worked.  They are sending me a new SIM card in two days. If I had known that this was going to happen I would not have made the switch.

@user_49d1ca​ The new SIM card will not fix it. See my post above for the fix.

Here is the number again as I see that they have removed it...[Edit: Inflammatory].

eight, six, six, four, six, one, zero, eight, zero five

Typical that Comcast would remove something that is helpful.

Oh man I am sick to my stomach after reading these posts.  I wish I would have seen this earlier before I switched from Verizon to Comcast.  I cant make calls and they act like they have no clue what's going on.

We just switched and I bought a new phone but brought my daughters phone from Verizon. Xfinity sent me the SIM and we’ve had nothing but problems and that same error 19. I did live chat for an hour and a half, then I called and was on the phone for 2 1/2 hours, then I went into the Xfinity store and they said now I have to call again.

I am now having this issue as well on my iPhone 14 Pro Max.  Whenever I call the 800 number, it tells me that it is going to reset my internet modem.  That's not why I am calling.  How can I get to technical support? The phone IVR has hung up on me 5x telling me that "I need to wait for the modem reset to complete," which I did not request.  I desperately need help with this and cannot get through to an agent.  I told it I am a new customer now and I'm on hold.  I'm hoping that will work, but the number of hoops I've had to jump through to get an agent is ridiculous and doesn't make me want to keep this service since Mint offers the same service for less money.
