I'm back on my #PinePhone BS again this weekend. Tried out a few more OSes and tried installing to internal flash. Wifi, LTE data and SMS Just Work™️ with everything. Ironically voice calls are the trickiest thing to get working on this "phone" 😂
Was beginners' luck having calls work initially without effort I guesd. but I'm still learning and having fun.
Hmm...so running `apt update && apt upgrade` and rebooting made phone calls come back again on #mobian
Imma gonna leave it like this for awhile and just *use* my Free/open fondleslab for a change. Maybe think of some app ideas since @thatgeoguy asked before. Maybe a fitness tracker for when I go jogging would be nice...hmm...
@msh My wife immediately stole the red USB-C cable from mine ;)
@msh this all sounds promising (as my 2.5 yo xiaomi begins to act up) 👍
@msh What do the DIP switches do?
@ifixcoinops they are physical disconnect switches for cameras, wireles etc. if you need to ensure privacy.
@msh Well that's pretty neat
Can't wait to hear more!!
@msh It definitely feels nice and solid .. I do wish at least the "radios on/off" switch was outside the phone, though. I wonder if that's just for this version, or will it to "actual production" like that?
(The reason I don't like it is I feel like "take off the back cover" is so much of pain, I'm unlikely to ever use the radio-off feature).
@meejah the hidden nano-dip-switches definitely have that vibe of being a "preview feature" so that devs can make sure their software handles the physical disconnect of those peripherals correctly rather than being used by normal people.
its an option for people who want to enforce "offline" operation for niche uses otherwise i suppose.
@matt it shipped on July 16. It spent most of it's trip in Chicago lol.
Looks like it might be an issue at DHL in Singapore specifically. I'd probably follow up with them.
@msh Soo Pretty!
@Avalon yep...the provided bright red USB cable is especially pretty too!
