  1. 5th solution did it for me, an app called Should I Answer. I had tried numerous methods before this & had just about given up.

    Thank you.

  2. 5th solution worked for me too! It took several attempts as I didn’t totally get how to get the screen shot shown in 5 above, but retried based on previous comment and whala!! Thank you SOOOO much!

  3. Your solution for my Android 7.0 Motorola Droid Turbo worked.
    The reboot to safe mode on my phone worked best by pushing the POWER + VOLUME UP at the same time and hold for 10 seconds and release.

    Thank you so much for your help!

  4. My cell phone sometimes won’t ring when my son calls me from prison.
    They use the GTL company. However, someone else can call me with no problem at that time.
    Sometimes if I reboot, it will work.
    On occasion I also get a “no cellular network” message.
    It’s very frustrating because he only gets a certain amount of time to make his call.
    Also, if he can’t reach me, he can phone his mother just fine.
    She will then phone me and tell me he is trying to call.
    Usually, I will do a power off and on and he can then get through to me.
    By that time most of his time has expired.
