I have a rooted Nexus 5 with multi users enabled (with gravity kk). This is great except when I receive calls or SMS... only the account marked as "owner" receives it. The most frustrating is that when I'm logged in with an additional user, I do receive the call (it rings) but I cannot catch it... And SMS are just only received on the "owner" account.

I didn't find any way to change that behaviour. Basically, I want that any user can receive the calls and receives the SMS. How can I change that?

    I believe this may be one of the reasons why multi-user is not supported on phones. I believe that Android L will bring this support 'out of the box'.

  • But it's so close to being already usable... it looks like it's just a matter of turning a flag on to allow any user to catch the call (as it already rings). I'm surprised no one already found out such hack...
