At incoming calls the phone does not ring reliably.
In PMOS (edge) it works perfectly.
(Braveheart Edition 1.1.)

Not quite as good a result here.  Sad 

I've got the Biktor modem firmware and PMOS edge, too, but still don't have reliable incoming call service. Playing around with other distros, too, but so far no luck.  USA, AT&T MVNO. And of course the problem is I don't know if I'm not getting calls because no one's calling or I'm not getting calls because the modem has decided to take a nap.  At least until my wife comes in and demands to know why my nerd phone isn't working and she gets my voicemail. Domestic tranquility may require me to get a flip phone or something.  Angry (Still better than Android, though.)

If anyone's got any good suggestions as to how to periodically poke the modem with a pointy stick so it doesn't doze off, I'm all ears.

Did you follow Biktorgj' recommendation about the udev rule? Here is a link for the OG Pinephone.

Basically you need to edit /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/80-modem-eg25.rules. Change "auto" to "on" in the 1st line and reboot.

Nope. I completely missed that (or at least misread it). Good excuse to finally install nano. I've edited and rebooted and will see what happens


OK. Been running with the changes for a couple days now. I don't think the modem bails on me as often, but I've caught it at least once. Usually the cell "bars" will disappear when this happens, but there have been times I missed calls when everything appeared fine and I'd only notice when the phone wouldn't ring but a while later a (possibly delayed) text from the service provider showed up that I think was meant to notify the phone about a visual voice mail. (It wasn't formatted for human readability.)

I wonder if there's anything I can do script-wise that can periodically check on cellular connectivity and alert me that I should reboot the phone. I'll post if I find anything useful on that.
