@PINE64

How are you cooler than Apple without their billion$ ?

(this toot from my over LTE cellular)

sorry

@msh @PINE64 are you able to make calls with yours, and if so, which image are you using?

(I don't have the ability to fix the problem of calls not working at the moment due to a medical issue, but I do want to swich to using my pinephone instead of what I'm using now, which is Jolla on a Sony device... it has a few issues, particularly with picking up calls... but I don't really want to switch "doesn't pick up all calls" for another "doesn't pick up all calls" issue.)

@Truck @PINE64 I have settled on Mobian with Phosh UI for now. The following works well enough for me so far:

* placing and receiving voice calls
* receiving and sending SMS texts
* LTE cellular data for Firefox web browsing, email, SSH etc.
* WiFi client
* AisleRiot Solitary game :blobtonguewink:

That is enough for me to keep my SIM in the PinePhone now. Voice calls and SMS are more reliable with my PinePhone than my old DTEK60 which is being glitchy and no longer gets Android OS updates! ...

@msh @PINE64 Cool, thanks, I will put that on a sd in a few minutes and ... test it tommorrow. It's 2:17 in the morning so (:

@Truck @PINE64

... thinks that still need work:

* mobile remix of Geary email still needs work. Crashy and UI still a bit cumbersome
* MMS (texts with media attached) are not received or sent. Maybe this is my fault? I can receive emojis but trying to send them usually fails.
* Only one camera (barely) works

But since I am an old and mostly use my mobile as an actual phone it has been tolerable.

I've tried UBPorts and PostmarketOS too. They seem more performing than Mobian but less stable.
