Author Topic: No Incoming Phone Call While Phone Is on Sleep  (Read 22662 times)

If my phone is in sleep mode, I won't be able to get incoming phone call.
Is there any setting adjustment or app that would allow my phone to wake up?

My Tablet is running Android 4.2.3

The issue seems to be that the Obion app was not programmed to establish a wakelock, allowing it to receive calls whilst the phone/tab is asleep - so, we need to use another app to keep a CPU wakelock going.

I've been testing with an app called automate, along with a small flow I put together, to establish a wakelock that keeps the CPU awake & sets the WiFi mode to Full - so far, this seems to do the trick, with incoming calls to the Obion app ringing through after the phone has been asleep for a while.

A couple of notes:
  • In order to work, the Obion app must remain either in foreground, or background - so you need to resist the temptation to use the Back key to exit the app & instead press the Home key to background it when you're doing other tasks on the device. You'll also need to remember to start the app before any period when you expect to receive calls, or use an app to automatically start it when the device boots (automate can do this, or something like this
  • I was already using the automate app for other purposes, so it made sense for me to use it - other apps specifically designed to set wakelocks, like this one, ought to be able to achieve the same end effect.
  • Even though incoming calls should now ring, you may still run into occasional instances where there's no audio (this has been reported elsewhere on the forum & I've not found a fix yet) - however, you'll at least be aware that there was a call & be able to call back.
  • There's going to be some impact on battery life, but so far, I've not seen this to be significant.
  • Depending on memory resources available, I believe that the Android OS may automatically kill apps in background if things run low - the phone I've been testing on has a fairly small amount of RAM, so I've noticed the Obion app disappearing when I've been running some other apps.
