How does calls work in debian?
#1
Calls and sms/mms works in plasma, manjaro.. Quite good! Is it not the same on debian at all? I would prefer debian, and will use it when it becomes good enough.

Calls and SMS work on mobian already. I don't know about MMS, though. Haven't tested them.

Nice. does it work good? I read that t takes a long time if someone calls.. That might not be the case. can you pick up a call in mobian? I need to try that one then! But MMS needs to work. Does it work as good as in manjaro? Is so i will try it.. Does anyone know? Thanks!

First SMS I ended up getting three times. But other ones since, no. But I haven't gotten many and most were from my carrier.

Haven't tested MMS. There is a good chance my carrier has sent one and I haven't seen it. They are the only ones who ever send me MMS.

As for phone calls, they definitely work. Phone wakeup was a bit long at first but has improved a bit with some updates. That and getting used to how to answer the call. Calling works as well.

That all said, I am currently struggling with a sound issue during my calls. My microphone is recording a frequency comb that gets transmitted to the other party and makes it hard for them to hear me. Trying to narrow down the cause and find a way to mitigate it.


As far as Manjaro, I only briefly tried the distro before wiping it. Either I didn't know how to make it work, or it just wasn't working very well for me. Also, I wanted full disk encryption and mobian was one of the few that made that easy. So, I switched before I got a chance to try calling with Manjaro.

I tried it, and there where no issues at all for me. Not even long wakeups for calls.. Everything just worked for me. Wink Mobian is way cleaner then manjaro in my opinion, i like it more..
