@yannesc This is probably RCS. I had this issue also.
I disabled the Chat Features in the stock Android Messaging App.

@moem This is off topic from improving the app., but here goes.
Do you have a recommendation on which Pebble model to purchase? I'm considering ordering one off Ebay. I see 1 seller with refurbished Pebble Steel watches for $45 + shipping. That's within my budget, but it's a 6 year old watch. What are your thoughts?
@pelican9000 Open the phone app. Note the up pointing arrow in grey at the bottom of the screen. Swipe up to see history.
@kugiigi Do put this command into the terminal on the phone after boot into UBPorts on the phone?
No, you would run that command in a terminal on your PC. You may need to install bmaptool. - If you are on Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install -y bmap-tools
Then download the .bmap file and .img.xz file.
Then find the block device of your PinePhone: sudo fdisk -l
Here is what mine looks like:
user@ws1:~> sudo fdisk -l ...Snip... Disk /dev/sdc: 29.12 GiB, 31268536320 bytes, 61071360 sectors Disk model: e eMMC Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: gpt Disk identifier: F74C6CF1-1978-405E-8D1A-7177BEDE414D ...Snip...
Then using @kugiigi command:
sudo bmaptool copy --bmap=ubuntu-touch-pinephone.img.bmap ubuntu-touch-pinephone.img.xz /dev/sdc
On the PinePhone there are 4 update channels, the 3 usual plus the kernelupgrade channel.
Which channel has the latest development packages? I'm especially interested in the kernel and ofono upgrades that were talked about in Q&A 98 on 10 April which will provide a more stable cellular modem connection.
Where can we see package (kernel,ofono) changes as there is little activity in gitlab?
Thanks to all of the UBports contributors.
@manland I definitely like the new layout better (The xx% showing the popularity now has a label). Unfortunately I seem to be able to corrupt the Queue, advancing to the next song eventually leads to the Queue showing 0/0 but the songs that were in the Queue are still listed, and I can't click the circle x (nor any other button) in the Queue.
I went back to one of your previous versions. - Can't say which one since these both show version 1.0.0
Thanks for your hard work.
So I understand, have UBPorts on the microSD, boot the phone, then go to the terminal and use that command?
No, you would boot the PInePhone with JumpDrive from the SD card. Connect the PinePhone to your Linux computer with a USB cable and then on the computer find the PinePhone's location using lsblk. Using that information from lsblk command, write the UBports image (ubuntu-touch-pinephone.img.xz) to the PinePhone's eMMC. Pine64 has this info on their wiki.
If you are using jumpdrive in the pinephone, you would use dd to write the UBports image to /dev/sdX . Make sure you are writing to the whole device and not to a partition (as an example /dev/sdc would be correct, but /dev/sdc1 would be incorrect). dd should not be asking for a password as it writes at the block level. An example of the command I use is xzcat ubports-pinephone.img.xz |dd of=/dev/sdc bs= 4M iflag=fullblock oflag=direct; sync
@fredldotme Thanks for the howto. I was able to build and install GhostCloud on my PinePhone. Access to files now works, but not contacts or calendar. I guess I'll have to setup syncevolution for those.
Is there a reason that GhostCloud doesn't make the downloaded files easier to access? I just create a symlink to .cache/me.fredl.ghostcloud/GhostCloud/mynextcloud.bob/443/myuser in the Documents directory, but couldn't the software do that upon install?
Alfred, again thanks for your help.
I'll try to build a click package, but as usual the instructions for building a click package are written for developers and I struggle to put them into action. For example, git: command not found when run on my pinephone. OK, I'll download the harbour-owncloud-0.9.6.tar.gz file and unpack it. Now I'm in the click directory: click build . click: error: directory . does not contain manifest.json. Then I also see in the README.md file to use some CONFIG statements and I don't know what I'm suppose to do with them.
Maybe just a little assistance (some pointers on how to build the package - I'm not asking anyone to build the package for me, I actually would rather build it myself and maybe learn something) would be greatly appreciated.
@fredldotme Is there a way to install version 0.9.6 (which doesn't depend on the Online Accounts feature) and manually create the necessary credential files so we can get GhostCloud working on PinePhone? It would really be nice to have access to my files, contacts, and calendar on my Nextcloud server.
I pulled my Oneplus One out of retirement a couple of days ago. It had LineageOS 17.1 on it. The installation of UT proceeded without issue. (I installed Stable). I changed to the halium-devel channel, and I'm currently running Version 74.
Rotation and Adjust brightness automatically both work without issue.
I had stopped using the Oneplus One a month ago because I couldn't get mobile data to work. With UT CALLS/SMS/MMS (ATT mvno), camera, Notification LED all work.
Thank you UT Team.
@fredldotme I re-installed UBports and am on the RC channel. SMS seems to be working. - (Has been working for more than 24 hours).
I tried to checkout the radio logcat;
sudo env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/vendor/lib64:/system/lib64 /system/bin/logcat -b radio
CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE "/system/bin/logcat": library "libtls-padding.so" not found.
It seems that I'm missing something.
I have a Pixel 3a which I was running on the Development Channel. After creating the 2 APN's 1 for internet and 1 for MMS, I was able to send/receive SMS/MMS/Calls & data via LTE worked. I think that was on version 240, and it ran pretty stable for a few days. After updating to version 244 & then 246, I was unable to receive SMS/MMS although I could send SMS (I didn't tryp MMS). I was also only able to get about 18 hours of use with light to moderate use (mostly internet browsing and some texting, minimal calls).
I've since gone back to Android as I need my phone to work.
I'm in the U.S. using StraightTalk on AT&T.
I'm willing to re-install UBports to assist with troubleshooting.
