can no longer make or receive calls or SMS
#1
plasma development branch. After flashing the most recent image 2 days ago, the phone will no longer make or receive calls or send SMS. It's odd, because prior to that, it was working more or less normally (except for the usual intermittent lose-the-modem flakiness). Although the indicator shows bars and says I am connected to the cellular network, it remains inaccessible. Updated as of 10 minutes ago, same problem. Rebooting does not help.

I've tried restarting ofonoctl, with no change in behavior. Any suggestions that could work me out of this?

Thanks.

I've been finding that my modem just disappears occasionally, every day or so.  To fix it I have to type in:

sudo systemctl restart ofono
sudo systemctl restart eg25-manager
ofonoctl poweron
ofonoctl online


I wonder if typing ofonoctl online in the terminal would get you back in business?

plasma-dialer was updated yesterday and now works again, update from terminal with `sudo pacman -Syu`

I tried that and it said everything was up to date yet I can't make or receive texts/calls either...

I can't say much, Plasma Dialer is old and very poorly maintained and though the phone functionality is very important nobody cares to develop a good application, it is basically a front-end to Telepathy and ofono, I just tested it and tough it makes calls you can only here white noise from the speaker, the behaviour may be different depending on the device and the mobile operator, just use a burner phone for the moment and test it after some days again.
