You may consider using Google's Find My Device (web version, app). I would not suggest a third-party app from unreliable sources (although you can't trust Google as well :p).

Possible to turn on Airplane mode with WiFi on only? Well yeah, possible in all of my devices running Android 4.2.1, 4.4.2, 5.0.2 and 5.1.1. This applies for portable hotspot too. The radios that are supposed to be turned off when Airplane mode gets enabled are saved in the key airplane_mode_radios under the table global inside /data/data/com.android....

Simply impossible. Mobile Network IS GSM. GPRS, EDGE, UMTS or LTE, which are different standards for providing packet-based Internet connections, are all expansion of the GSM standard and, as such, require a GSM signal.

You can automate the process. Install Macrodroid on the old phone, open it and add a macro. Then follow the steps below: In the Triggers tab, in the Call/SMS section, select "Call Incoming', then "Select Contact(s)". Choose your phone number. In the Actions tab, in the Volume section, select "Volume Change". Give the appropriate permission to Macrodroid. ...

You can call between AVD's. Run 2 AVD, each will have diffrent number - it is placed on window title bar, example 5558. Call from one to other using this numbers. You can also text ;] In your AVD you simply cannot use real celluar network because your PC/Mac do not have built-in GSM modem (even if, AVD is not supporting this kind of feature).

An app with the appropriate permissions can not only initiate calls without you knowing, but also remove all evidence from your call logs: CALL_PHONE: Allows an application to initiate a phone call without going through the Dialer user interface for the user to confirm the call being placed. WRITE_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to write (but not read) the ...

I was in need of doing this exact thing today. I was forced to figure it out on my own after I couldn't find an answer online. As it turns out, it's easier than I expected. Open your bluetooth settings, find your device, and click the settings icon for that device. You should see some options for the device. Uncheck the "Phone audio" option.

"Report" does what it says, report the phone number as spam to Google. This will help users of Google's caller ID (e.g. Nexus device users) in the future, since number reported as spam will be shown as "Suspected spam caller" or "Spam" as caller ID. From Nexus official support, Mark calls as spam You can mark all calls from a ...

Is there a way to make one specific number always ringing loud? (even if the phone is in silent mode) Another solution could be that instead of putting the phone in silent mode, you can set the default ringtone to a silent audio file. Then, you can set a normal ringtone for the contact of the number you want to call from.

The Answer to the question is Yes and I do it. I use a Raspberry Pi running RasPBX so within the house most things are SIP or DECT. My Main phone is a Gigaset DX800A which supports SIP and also DECT. These DECT phones attached to the DX800A become SIP extensions. The Phone in my office is an Aastra 6739i (SIP) with a Sennheiser DECT headset. I have a ...

I use my mobile like this when I travel. So first turn on Airplane mode and then activate WIFI (for example in notification panel). At the end you will have Airplane mode, WIFI activated, and all other connection deactivated.

Before you place a call there is a backspace symbol to the right of the numbers that you've entered that you can use to delete any of the numbers that you've already entered. However, once you've actually rung a number and started a call, the backspace disappears and you can't delete numbers (as in your screenshot in the question). The reason for this is ...

From the phone app, tap the Action Overflow button (...) in the top-right corner, then tap Call History. Tap any entry, then Details, and it will show you the date, time, and LENGTH of call, or calls (individually, in a list) if multiple were grouped together.

This is actually independent of whether a mobile phone is Android. In the United States, the FCC requires wireless service providers to provide 911 service to all phones, regardless of whether they currently have paid service or not. The FCC's basic 911 rules require wireless service providers to transmit all 911 calls to a PSAP, regardless of whether ...

Android does, but it's not very well documented. The ConnectionService class was introduced in Marshmallow and allows an app to register itself as a voice service, the user needs to manually enable the voice service through the phone settings (same place you would enable/disable SIP accounts). Once this is done you can choose between registered voice ...

Plug in a headset. It's the only answer!

Unfortunately, there is no way to disable that. Sony is using a proprietary Dialer that has that function hard-coded into it. Without using a custom ROM, there is no way around it. I know this because I have experience with this on Samsung devices (they also have a bar near the bottom that allows to Reject with Text), and having heavy proficiency with ...

Since this is of the Samsung Galaxy family, the following may help you: On my Galaxy S3, the setting is controlled as 'Alerts on call'. See: Dialer\Call Settings\Call Alert\Alerts on call - uncheck this and calls will not be interrupted with notifications.

Sounds like you'll need to roll your own telephony gateway. This kind of thing can get complicated very quickly, so your milage will depend on the amount of free time you have to devote to the project and your knowledge of telecommunications. At its most basic, you need to do this: [Android (SIP app)] --Ethernet/WLAN--> [VOIP Gateway] [Home Phone] --...

The app Blacklist Plus mentions exactly that as one possible use: There are four block modes of call blocker: Blacklist All except the whitelist All except contacts All numbers (emphasis mine). There are plenty other similar apps available, just search for "blacklist" or "call blocker" on the playstore.

Although you mentioned using Android 4.1.2, I recently stumbled across this question and thought a more recent answer might be useful to others: On Android 5.0 "Lollipop" and later this can be accomplished using the "Priority only" Do Not Disturb mode: Configure Do Not Disturb Priority Allowances Open your device's Settings app. Tap Sound, then Do ...

I am an Android Application developer. I had a requirement to make phone verification. In that case we had to make a telephony call to our server. But we could't achieve that as Android system does not allow us to make a phone call without users interaction. The best we can do is populate the phone number in the default dialer app. In any case user has to ...

I found a workaround. By clicking new call button, I am able to type new number and execute service codes.

This is a partial answer based on the output of logs provided. Okay, after looking at the logcat, my guess would be a buffer overrun error originating/stemming from mm-camera and connected services/processes and ion memory allocation.

There's an app called Auto Redial that you can configure to keep calling the same number over and over. I configured it like this: (click screenshot to enlarge) Note that I added ,1,1 after the number. This makes the phone automatically dial 1 twice, once the call is connected. This works even outside of the app, while dialing a number manually or from ...

It is possible with Samsung Find My Mobile feature. Register here, and you'll be able to make loud sound even If your phone is in silent mode.

Yes you can.. while the call is active, press the home button. The current call will be minimize on the top notification bar. you can start any other app, while the call is still going on.

I guess you could do this using the "Conference Call" trick on android (natively!). The screenshots below are for vanilla Froyo (Android 2.2) and may vary with your version/dialer app. During your call (Don't hang up the call), after talking to that person, press the "Menu" button on your android. Press "Add Call" from the menu. Dial and call the number ...
