HTC Incredible :: Phone Occasionally Will Not Ring On Incoming Call
Aug 16, 2010
I have had my Droid Incredible for about two months now. I was really one of the lucky ones!! I usually can fix problems by myself, because I am skilled in Android, but this one I have to turn to my friends in the Android community and ask for some assistance. Next, the phone will randomly change my ringtone. Next, the Sense clock/weather widget displays a location that I don't even live in, and sometimes it will show just a number. How I can fix this, without rooting (waiting for official Froyo).
My phone will sometimes not ring at all when I receive an incoming call. It will be waiting for me to pickup, but nothing will be coming out of the speakers. Also, sometimes when someone calls it rings and rings on their end and go to my voice mail, but my phone will not even register that they called. Oh, and it randomly revolted once or twice just sitting there. I am probably going to exchange my phone, but I wanted to see if that is the best course of action.
When I'm on a call and a 2nd call comes in, my phone doesn't ring or anything. Is there anyway to change this so that I know when I have a call waiting without having to look at the screen (which is usually pressed up against my ear)?
I would set my HTC Wildfire to ring only once (or twice) for incoming calls. Even old Nokia phone have advance settings to do this but not Android phone. Is there a free app allowing to do this kind of advanced settings?
Is there a way to mute the ring tone of an incoming call while I am deciding what to do with the call? This morning some idiot rang me at 0150h. I was fumbling to mute the tone before it woke up the whole house. But I could not find any option. In meetings, it is a nuisance if the ringing blares away while I make my way out of the room to take the call.
I have a new problem for the incoming call. My phone is work well until now. The phone doesn't ring and vibrate when incoming call. So, I restart my phone and I tried to call my phone but it's ringing vibrate the first time. Then the second time doesn't work anything.
I'm rooted but s is still on and nand is not unlocked. I'm running the stock rom.
I use to get little delays occasionally when I tried to make a phone call, and sometimes the keyboard was unresponsive when I tried to text. Always passed in a few minutes.
Now the thing is just lagging. delays all the time regardless of what I'm doing. I also get a message sometimes when I try to take pics saying I don't have file permissions for the sd card. A shutdown will usually resolve this.
Sometimes when I shutdown I can't restart it without popping the battery out for a few seconds.
I thought it might be related to an overclock widget I was trying so I deleted it without improvement.
I miss my Blackberry choices for notification, in particular, phone only. A quick one press button for ring, vibrate, ring phone only, silent. I use profile and find it a little too in depth. I want something simple. I also think there may be a gremlin or two as I have found my settings changed without my doing anything.
I have had a few of occasions that my incredible doesn't ring but goes straight to voice mail. Not always from the same caller and not any common apps running that I can think of. The callers have told me they heard 5 or 6 rings and then got voice mail. I checked their phone entries and straight to voice mail is not checked. I had two of them call me right back and the phone rang. I am not using Google voice. It maybe too early to call it a problem but thought I would post to see if any others have had this happen.
I'm using a Droid Incredible with the stock OTA froyo pushed by verizon. I did a search and some say that if you're on a phone call, and another call comes in, you are not able to merge that second call so all 3 parties can be on the line, and that it is a limitation of CDMA. Others say that it is carrier specific, and that it has been confirmed not to work with the Evo on sprint, but nothing specific to verizon. Anyone have any info on this? I have been searching, but haven't found a clear answer.
On a side note, since I update to froyo, I've had an issue with call waiting. It seems that when I'm on a phone call, and I receive another call from a person that is on my contacts list and stored in the phone, it will not pull up the persons caller ID info (name, picture etc), it will only display the phone number. It always worked fine before, but this started happening since the update.
Quick question about a nandroid backup. My wife just let me root her eris (I know this is the Droid forum, I have a Droid and have learned a lot from here). Ok I cut up a few different ROM's (some Eris and some Droid) and got it working on her phone. I made a nandroid backup, if someone else was to use the nandroid on their phone will there phone ring when someone calls her number?
Still waiting on my DINC while using my WM TP2. I have one well two feathers I like to have on my DINC. I am tech support and get calls all the time: 1. On my TP2 when on a call and a new incoming call comes in I can reject that call with a 'send txt' button and it send the caller a text I pre-created to let them know I am busy. Is it possible to do this on the DINC? 2. There is a free app my TP2 uses to record all calls automatically and it helps me because I cannot not write many times when I am driving or running network in a ceiling so the ability to playback a saved call is huge. Is there a app out there anyone use to record calls on the DINC? (pls do not concern me about the legal side this is for me and me only and there are apps that can do it which I am doing now)..
I looked & was unable to find an answer to this when I searched. My phone is actually RINGING with the ringtone when I get a 2nd call on call waiting. I'd much prefer the beep as it is very disruptive and a friend asked me the other day what that noise was. It was my phone ringing for an incoming call!
I want to know that what will happen to my activity incase of an incoming phone call? Will the state of my activity be saved or I have to explicitly save it? Another question is that will the activity resume after the call is disconnected?
I would like to retrieve the incoming call's phonenumber and do something with it.Could you please help me because I can't find any information about this.Where do i start and how do i get hold of the phone number?
I need Android program which will indicate if a call is coming from diverted number.
I have a helpdesk number in my business, which is diverted to my normal number and I have to answer it differently. This is why I need to know with a sign or text or anything that the call is made to this helpdesk number.
My Acer Liquid E keeps Muting every time I answer a call. Its odd because its not disconnecting at all and I can hear the caller perfect. Sometime if I hit the mute, speaker phone, or hold buttons a view times it starts to work normal. All outgoing calls are perfect. Hopefully I can narrow it down to either a phone defect or a OS issue that just needs an update. Has anyone else had this issue?
I am developing a phone application with my own GUI , I want to receive incoming call event. I am able to receive it using Broadcast receiver ,
But after receiving in My Broadcast receiver. Native phone application GUI comes to foreground and my application GUI goes to background. I do not want native GUI to be displayed on screen , How can i disable native phone application GUI.
Is there any way to disable broadcast intent or any other suggestion for displaying my application GUI instead of native phone app gui.
When my friends call me, my phone starts ring between third and fourth free signal on theirs side, then the time I am realizing it rings and it's in voicemail already.very annoying.what makes this in-acceptable delay?
I'm trying to write an app that will run when the phone rings but NOT answer the incoming call. The app would have an answer button that when pressed would perform the regular call answer action, but this isn't what I need help with. I've searched the internet and haven't been able to find any consensus on this issue. My app only needs to run during the call ringing stage and nothing more. What would I have to listen for to do this and what manifest entries would I need? Forgive my incorrect/nonexistant use of terminology, I haven't worked with Android in close to a year and haven't freshened up fully yet.
I had the proximity sensor problem which was fixed after firmware update/blowing on the sensor. However, now neither the flip to silence the phone on an incoming call feature (the setting is on) OR the flip to activate the speakerphone when in a call now works. The flip to silence the phone on an incoming call was working before the firmware update.
