Incoming calls going straight to VMail?
Sunday 09th of September 2012
Hey all. I've had my rezound for a few months and it has been a great device. However the last week or so my phone has not been ringing on incoming calls. The only way I know I missed it is if the caller leaves a voicemail then I get a voicemail notification. I cannot miss phone calls having a disabled child so this is unacceptable for me. Any ideas on a solution? Sent from my ADR6425LVW using Android Central Forums
Incoming calls going directly to Voicemail
Wednesday 14th of December 2011
I'm in an LTE area (NYC). When I'm at home, incoming calls to my Samsung Skyrocket go straight to voicemail without the handset ringing even though I have 2-3 bars reception. I can make outgoing calls, surf, send/receive texts. Elsewhere in the city, I don't seem to have this issue, though every now and then the calls will randomly go straight to voicemail. AT&T have been trying to sort out the issue - replaced my SIM, rebuilt my file (whatever that means), run some network tests but haven't been able to solve the issue and are about to tell me to go the HTC if I want LTE. I called Samsung today and they asked me to reset the phone and that has not helped either. We have AT&T 3G iphones & blackberries at home and they have had zero issues, it's not that the home is in a bad reception area. so this is either a phone/handset issue or a LTE network issue (I hear that only data travels on the LTE network, voice goes on 3G, so perhaps there's an issue with that setup?) Wondering if anyone is having similar issues and/or have thoughts on how to fix this. I really like this phon

Dinc not ringing or showing missed calls? Possible solution
Friday 17th of December 2010
I've been having a sporadic, weird problem with my Droid Incredible. I *think* I may have found a solution, albeit an annoying one. But I figured I'd post it here in case it's either helpful, or if someone can suggest a better solution. THE PROBLEM: My Droid Incredible will sometimes stop ringing when I get an incoming call. The ringer is on and loud, that's not the problem. And calls are coming in, because if I happen to be looking at the screen when a call comes I can see it visually. But: no audible ring. Furthermore, my Dinc stopped displaying a visual "missed call" alert on the home screen. The only way I'd know I'd missed a call would be to go into the phone app and check the call history. This is a big problem for me, since I live in a gated apt. complex and the only way I know someone is at the gate for me is when they call me. (Gate box rings through to my phone, no intercom in my apt.) I've missed package deliveries and friends stopping by because of this. Coincidentally, at the same time this problem started cropping up (it comes and goes), I noticed that verizo
Incoming calls not ringing
Tuesday 11th of June 2013
So, I'm new here so forgive me if I missed something else that answers this. My nexus s 4g just recently was resurrected to be used with Ting. So far so good. Today in an attempt to be cheaper(yes I know I should've left well enough alone), I installed sipdroid, got it to set up the google voice Pbxes account. It worked fine for making calls and receiving them to my google voice account. Now if someone calls my ting number it rings on their end and goes to voice mail. Never rings on my end. I've changed my google account password, deleted both pbxes accounts I had and removed sipdroid from my phone. Still not ringing on my end. Done profile and prl updates in the vain hope that'd fix it. I'm at a loss and clearly in over my head and have learned a valuable lesson. If it can be fixed I'd be very grateful for any help. Thanks in advance.
calls go straight to voicemail, phone making random noises...frustration
Wednesday 21st of August 2013
My phone's not ringing with incoming calls, but sending everything straight to voicemail, and not even sending a voicemail alert. I've missed a key hospital appointment due to this as only saw the voicemail symbol too late. This has been going on for 3 days now and my network (Tesco in the UK) say no problems from their side. The phone also makes random and constant noises (hard to describe but loud) when it is placed in any kind of case - I have a soft protective zip up case that I put it in when going out with a backpack.About 3x daily it bings through about 5 'failure to connect to gmail' alerts when there is no gmail activity in my gmail account. It also has a -101dbm signal or worse all the time for calls and 3G is patchy. the most annoying is the call failure. Any suggestions please? It's running android 4.3 as google did an auto update recently. thanks
Cant answer incoming calls on Nexus 5 4.4.2
Tuesday 18th of March 2014
I have a Nexus 5 running Android Kit Kat 4.4.2. Overall this is a great phone but i am facing some issues that i will describe below: 1) This i noticed 2 months ago. I dont know if it still has it:I was calling a friend and he didnt answer. Then the whole day i was waiting for him to call back but he never did (at least according to my phone). When i called him again he told me that he called me back, the phone rang 3 times and then he got the message we get when someone rejects the call or the phone is out of battery. I never had a missing call to know that he called back.This is a very tricky error, since maybe you are missing incoming calls from your boss. To you it appears like you never received the call, but to your boss it seems like you are ignoring him. Not a good thing. 2) This is a problem i am getting for the last 2 months.When someone calls and the device is sleeping, i hear the ringing, i unlock the phone but what i get is the main page of the device. No incoming call notification, no dialer, nothing.Only the ringtone. If i press the phone app i get 3 choices:a) use tou
Randomly doesn't ring
Tuesday 15th of April 2014
I've about had it with this phone not ringing on incoming calls. I have Verizon with a solid 3 bars of 4G signal. People call me later in the day and ask why I never called them back. Because the phone never rang, I never get a notification of a missed call and no way of knowing a voice mail was left. Anyone else experiencing this? My friend does and he's about to pull the trigger on a new phone even though he's only had his Note 3 for 4 months.
Can't answer incoming calls...
Thursday 24th of July 2014
Hi guys... Weird problem that I haven't heard of anyone else having with an S5. I did see a similar post but the other guy's phone was a Nexus 5. 1 or 2 out of 10 incoming calls, I am UNABLE to answer, the swiping right action just doesn't seem to work, the phone stops ringing but the screen keeps displaying the answer/ reject screen, like the one in the middle below: I have even chosen to use the HOME button to answer incoming calls (the picture on the left above) but it doesn't work either... (I can't answer by swiping or hitting the home key). I bought the phone right on launch date (April 11), the problem must've happened during the first week of me owning it but I was stupid and didn't report the issue to my carrier at that time. Now, 4 months later, I need to bring it in to the carrier, who will likely give me a ****ty loaner phone (not even sure if it will be a smartphone), while they send it in for warranty/ service. I will likely then be stuck with a refurbished phone that Samsung will send back in case they are unable to resolve the issues... What a bummer. Anyone experien
