Phone calls on New PMOS Community Edition phones
#1
Has anyone succeeded in using the new PMOS Community Edition Pine phone to place or receive phone calls or to send & receive sms/text ?

Using the Factory installed operating system...?

Using an alternative operating system... ?

If so what carriers have been tested and working ?

Thanks for sharing

Update :

I received my new PMOS Convergence Pkg phone about 4:00 pm in the afternoon after the above post.

I just did some quick preliminarily tests using an AT&T prepaid sim card, (my sim card needs to be replaced as it does 'connect' to the internet, but will not allow me to 'use' the internet).

First I tried the Post Market that is factory installed,  I did the updates, then everything I tried worked.
Both incoming & outgoing voice calls and sms/text works incoming and outgoing.
Using the wifi for web browsing Firefox appears to work slightly better than earlier releases.
The mobile data did 'connect'  but I got the AT&T message "it looks like you are trying to connect to the internet, but your account does not have data..."

Then I tried the September 03 nightly release of Mobian, again everything that I tested was working for me, also, same as above for my attempt to connect to the internet.
Both Firefox and the Gnome browser were working fine from the wifi.
 I only checked the speaker phone function on Mobian and it did not work.
This test was done with a sd card, but speed was ok, considering....

Both tests were done as a GUI user, just adjusted the usual settings and basic inputs.
So consider this as :   "Out of the Box"   tests.

  NOTE :  The first couple of calls on PMOS there was no handset ringtone heard, and no voice/audio ether direction.
But,   after that it performed very well.

I got Tracfone (T-Mobile compatible) working with calls, text, and data in Phoenix, AZ. Voice quality is meh, but everything seems to work. I got so excited that I made a thread about it. I've only tried PMOS so far, but will try Mobian over the weekend if I have time.

My calls aren't great on any of the distros, and its driving me crazy. I don't need apps, per say. I could live with out them, I just want talk and text and for it to better about 2 steps better than now.

The audio on the sept 15 mobian nightly build seems pretty good, just the ring-tone for out bound calls seems inconsistent, first had to change in settings> sound on output from 'default' to 'phone call'....
  still a work in progress.
