  1. WiFi calling in my location via USCellular has always been reliable with an earlier version of iPhone SE, but unstable with my new iPhone SE 3. The fix for me, so far, is to change the phone’s default setting at: Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > Voice & Data. I switched from 5G Auto to LTE. The previous phone did not have the 5G option.
