I hate “unknown” callers as it already is, but I’ve recently discovered that these are numbers from close family/friends that I’ve been ignoring and am now having to answer without knowing who it is that I’m picking up the phone too — even though these are people that are saved in my phone’s contact app.
Getting a bit concerned because I only picked up my 3+ in January, and it’s been having a few issues with the fingerprint sensor. Is there a fix, or is my unit just a bit wrong?
Maybe try another phone app, like simple mobile tools. Or try to clear the cache of the installed phone app, via settings-apps-phone app Can you access all contacts from phone app at outgoing calls? Do you use Wifi Calling?
Edit: Re: Fingerprint sensor, yeah, just make sure you scan 1 finger at loads of different angles - when I was setting up mine it was rubbish to begin with, but I rescanned by just picking up the phone and touching the sensor in a slightly different angle as if I was using it “normally” and it’s much better now.
(I did the same for another finger on the other hand)
Yeah, it’s still a bit hit & miss, but, yeah… it’s ok
The “Unknown” caller thing seems to have recitifed itself on my phone, weirdly.
I downloaded the “Simple Phone” app from Fdroid, which displayed contacts fine, and then switched back to the Google Dailler and it’s all showing again — bit weird, but I’m glad it’s just the software being silly and nothing to do with my carrier etc.
Fingerprint sensor has always worked for scanning my finger; it’s the “dragging down for notifications” panel that has never worked, if you know any software fixes* for that. Using the phone’s inbuilt tester software also detects and error when it comes to the fingerprint reader, too.
