Vodafone UK call disconnect 29 minutes 50 seconds issue


I recently purchased a fp5. I’m quite pleased with it, thank you. However, at the moment, there’s just one problem: calls cut off after 29 minutes and 50 seconds.

Having searched the Net, it seems this is a known problem with Vodafone (UK), and Google Pixel phones (and now, probably, the fairphone5).

This post on reddit:


describes the problem accurately.

Disabling WiFi calling seems to make the problem better. Apparently, also, pressing call hold during the call is enough to prolong the call.

It would be good to hear if anyone else has this problem and if there are any other fixes available.
