@sam-strelitz Getting some piece of FOSS software compiled and starting on a phone is trivial. Making it useful on a phone is not.
The difference is phones have limited battery and limited connectivity, and aren't designed to be in active use 24/7. And traditional apps made for traditional PCs don't tend to take such things into consideration, or are they designed to work with touch input or scale properly on a small screen that is 300-600 DPI.
I can see that you are quite excited, but if you are expecting your phone experience to be like you are used to having on a PC, you are going to be woefully disappointed (either because that isn't what you get, or because when you do get that it will be a horrible experience).
@rik I tried all of the above. There was no change. With wireless on and in 4G, I can send but not receive. With wireless off, reboot, and in 4G, send but not receive. Same with 3G. I am going to try and pick up a Red Pocket SIM on the way home and try that, will report. Looks like AT&T is the only game in town where I am.
@dieharddan Thanks for the tips, I will look at this more.
In the last day I have tried keeping "Cellular Data" OFF and I am more reliably getting SMS. I am not confident to say 100% but so far I haven't missed a test SMS yet?? Again will need more testing.
So far I think @Nutmeg and I both used the Android version mentioned in the install guide: PQ3B.190801.002, is that right? I did NOT test SMS / MMS to much extent on the Android side before flashing UT, so that could be a good test if we don't get anywhere. I'd prefer to not re-flash but certainly a working phone would be worth it 🙂
The PinePhone is getting increasingly better and better, the UBports software has made calling and texting much better, and more stable, however there seems to be a limit on how good it can get, not from the Ubuntu side, or the hardware side, but from the firmware pre-installed, how good can the call and messaging features get with the pre-installed firmware, and what seems to be the overall thougths on upgrading the modems firmware, or installing the open source firmware from Biktorgj
@sam-strelitz DId you ever get it working? We had similar issues and it was a major headache to finally get it working. Did you install all of the required drivers and such? Let me know if it still isn't working and I can lay out the procedure that we used to finally get it going.
Disable app suspension for the terminal app on the tweak tool if you want.
Also, if you plan to create apps, you can try Seabass. It's a great code editor and supports creating a libertine container for building via clickable.
Yeah I know about those devices. I've search the YouTube as well. I almost went for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10 but then when I checkout linked XDA thread I noticed bluetooth isn't working at all. I almost bought a port without working bluetooth.
Speaking of Lenovo tablet it looks by far the snappiest UT tablet
on the market. The presenter used the same bluetooth keyboard I have to connect so I could see it works. I'm buying 🙂
