Report from the bleeding edge: calling / texting

Fewer lockups the last week or so.

More failed outbound calls.  Rebooting now recommended if you fail twice in a row.  Is there an easier way?

Anbox has quit launching entirely, several updates have come down in the last week or two and still no launch.

Megapixels is much improved.  Even reads QR codes to the clipboard.  No video yet, no flash support, few adjustments.

Convergence is a little closer, an external monitor is fairly reliably detected now.  Phosh is entirely unsuited to being a window manager on an external monitor at this point.

It's built into Megapixels. You just open the app, hold the phone to a QR code and a box around the code will appear in the preview window which you can tap on.

Is this related to this topic? https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=12236

I made a fix for that: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mobile-br...quests/545

I wanted to post there, but the topic is closed.

EDIT: Fix is merged and available in MM 1.16.6 and later!

Another month, more changes, more pain.

Calling out never works the first attempt.  Usually works the second time.  Press the dial button, wait a few seconds for it to fail, try again and it switches to the call progress dialog.  Touch tone support is still erratic.  Some systems accept keypresses, some never see them, some are borderline.  Adopted the habit of rebooting after every other call because after a couple of calls inbound becomes unreliable.  Can't find a way to disable a second call ringing while on a call.  Accept the second call and lose hard.  There is no way obvious way to end the first call other than reboot.  Calls aren't always showing in the call history.  Probably related to the Chatty problem below.

In the last few days things have taken a turn for the worse.  All the efforts to get MMS have destabilized SMS.  Chatty randomly closes.  Deleting a conversation will 100% reliably terminate it.  The thead does get deleted so relaunching isn't a major pain.  Texts come in, the notification pops up with part of the message, clicking "Show Message" sometimes does, sometimes doesn't.  Because sometimes the message simply isn't in the chat app to show.  Yesterday I got a billing message (I'm paygo) and never saw even a notification for the message the billing notice was for.

Anbox is a write off at this point, it doesn't look like it is going to come back again anytime soon so some other arrangement to replace FreeOTP is going to be needed other than keeping my old Android handset handy.

Shocked 
ModemManager: Quick suspend/resume

I have tested PMOS (edge) for the last two weeks.

The pinephone rings reliably at the first dial tone. Additional I had some longer phone calls with good sound quality.
Up to now, everything works really fine. I never lost the cellular connection within the last two weeks,
it seems to be more stable now. Thank you very much, Dylan. [Image: smile.png]

What is still an issue - incoming calls appear often twice, with the telephone number and as "anonymous call". At the last ring
tones there is an echo sometimes.
