Loud Beep after call

Re: Loud Beep after call

Life is too short....

 

So I reinstalled the thing and sure enough, beep is still at it's normal annoyance level, not the loud BEEP as before

 

Sadly now we lost a live example here that I'm sure the devs would have enthusiastically been all over to get log dumps from me to sort this bug out for others, right?

 

So at this moment I'm not experiencing the issue, but now I don't know what to think.

Re: Loud Beep after call

@jeremyan,

 

Because the issue is with Skype, the Skype developers will need to be the ones to resolve the issue. Sony Mobile has no control over the development of third party applications.

I recommend you contact the Skype developers and notify them of the issue. You can do this from the Play Store page. It will be up to them to provide an update that resolves the problem.

Re: Loud Beep after call

Did you see that Skype isn't the only application impacted?  See link re: snapchat. Therefore, it's not a Skype bug.

 

If the default built in phone dialer is behaving erratically because of other random apps, and I have not given the other apps permission to futz with the phone dialer, the problem is with the design or security of the phone dialer, not the other apps.

 

What else do we need to be terrified about that can happen, without our permissions, to the default dialer??  What if somebody wrote an app that made the Sony "What's New" app start beeping every time it popped a notification on the screen, would you blame the other app, or the What's New app for allowing that to happen?

 

Cameron, you are scaring me with what you are suggesting.

Re: Loud Beep after call

The BEEP came back when I made a call today

 

Cameron, I will make a deal with you:

 

If your team from your official Sony support side, can lob in an, I don't know what you call it, OEM ticket to Microsoft to let them know about this bug that you believe is with Skype (major software!), then I will attempt to navigate Microsoft's kafka-esque support structure to attempt to open a ticket with them as well.

 

Is that fair?

 

It carries a heck of a lot more weight coming from the OEM side (Microsoft software running on Sony modified Google OS running on Sony hardware), than from the end user side (me).

 

Fair?

Re: Loud Beep after call

I found a temporary workaround for anyone who found themselves here. Uninstall Skype and install Skype Lite. That doesn't suffer from this issue.

 

As we know Skype is impacted, snapchat is impacted, and presumably others are as well.

 

Google is aware of this. Microsoft is aware of this. As we see here, Sony is aware of this. Lord knows whether they are actually doing anything about it. Knowing nothing about nothing, I still maintain that it is a Dialer bug that just so happens to be triggered by these other apps.

Re: Loud Beep after call

Unfortunately, have faced the same issue on brand new pfone without any installed app. This happens unexpectedly even when i enable or disable screen tap sound in the advanced sound config. So, the reason looks like stock firmware related. I have spent a day watching when and how it happens and noticed strange behavior of activity which we can see during call and which is called by dialer app to make a call. It switches line to the speaker after call before disconnecting from line and that time i can hear loud beep sent by phone hardware. Also heard busy tones. No matter which. When dialer "think" that call is ended then it switches sound stream at first step and then disconnects from modem. This issue is almost 10 years old and think there was a time to find a solution!
