The most horrible of experiences is when your call is dropped in the middle of your conversation. After talking to someone for a few minutes, you face the network issues; you are suggested to call the person again. No more confusions, follow the fixes and find the solutions if your OnePlus 6 can’t make and/or receive phone calls.
Check the signals
Your cell phone receives wireless signals from the nearby tower; your phone display shows you the strength of signals by four or five signal bars. If your OnePlus 6 is receiving poor or no signals, you cannot make or receive calls. In this situation, you need to reboot your OnePlus 6.

Normally, consumers have to reboot their OnePlus 6 devices when the phone doesn’t respond even after continuous taps. To reboot your OnePlus 6, simply press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Your phone will turn off automatically, and after the power cycle, your phone reboots into normal operation. A simple restart can fix the issue, but when your phone has become unresponsive, you cannot select the power off button after long pressing the power button for one second.
Have you enabled Flight Mode?
Users accidentally hit the Flight button and put their OnePlus 6 in airplane mode. This surely prevents them from making or receiving calls; when your phone is in flight mode, it is disconnected from all wireless connections. If you have turned on airplane mode by mistake, you need to disable flight mode on your OnePlus 6.

Check the status of your wireless account
In case your wireless account is inactive or deactivated, you cannot make or receive calls on your OnePlus 6. Here, you need to verify your account status. I have noticed that many of my friends forget to pay the bills on time, and then they find their wireless account inactive. You need to ensure that your wireless carriers like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile have not disconnected your account. If all your bills have been paid, your carrier will ask you to check your system.
Cellular service is in maintenance
Cellular service is not in working order as there is an outage in your area. You come to know about this only when you talk to a customer care representative of your carrier. Cellular services fail to work because of maintenance reasons, and until the outage is fixed, you cannot make or receive calls on your smartphone.
