Re: Smart Call not working on incoming calls after PIE update

I want to be sure we are talking about the same problem (Galaxy S8, Italy)

 

 

After Pie update, the Smart Call app from Samsung does not stay enabled:

after you enable Smart Call from "Call settings", it stays enabled only for few hours. During these few hours, it works properly.

However, after a while, the "Smart Call" settings switches to "Disabled" by itself.

 

PS: In my case, the caller ID from the carrier works perfectly.

 

 

 


My smart call does stay enabled. It just stops working after a few calls  

 

Caller ID from Verizon does work all the time, but they charge $3.00 / month.

Samsung may have fixed this issue.

 

Earlier this week, I received an update for Samsung Experience.  

 

The next day I received 3 sp@m

Spoiler
 

calls. Every call was identified, and I was given the option to report the call  

 

I'm not sure why this site flagsvrhe word "sp@m" when you try to post. That's why I have to use the @ sign. 

 

Later in the week I received a second update for Samsung Experience.   I was hoping what may have been fixed was not broken by the second update. Since then, I received 2 more sp@m calls  They were both identified. 

 

I'll continue to monitor and post back here. I'm hoping Smart Call is finally fixed after Pie broke it

I do believe that Samsung has finally fixed this issue caused by the Pie update. 

 

The recent Samsung Experience (Android Overlay) update that was sent out appears to have fixed whatever was broken. 

 

Every single call that I have received since the Samsung Experience update, that was not in my contacts,  has been identified.

 

I will continue to monitor and post back, but I think Samsung fixed the issue. There must have been a patch in the Samsung Experience update to fix the broken code.

Smart call is not fixed. I had 3 incoming calls today. All 3 said unsaved and did not give me the option to report the call as sp@m. 

 

I thought they fixed it. Oh well. I'm really frustrated with this. 

 

I own so many Samsung products including a $6,000 75" Q9F TV. I expected more from Samsung.

Okay, I was wrong. I did have the option to report the call and block the number. The options were under (!) Info. Apparently Smart Call just has no caller ID information for that number which called 3 more times today. My phone just displays "unsaved". I was able to block it. So I am thinking that Samsung did their diligence and fixed the broken code. 

 

Now for the trick of the tail, I'll have to switch my SIM card over to my Note 9, which also got the Samsung Experience update and see if Smart Call now works on it as well.

I think I found a solution, hope it can help: there is a new update available form Germany (no brand) on SAMMOBILE for Galaxy S8 : GF950FXXU4DSDA/GF950FXXU4DSD6 installed almost a week ago, and the problem seems to be solved.

The problem is solved here as well with the last Samsung Experience update.  They fixed whatever code was broken.

Hey I haven't received the update yet. Possible for you to share a screenshot of the change log? Does the change log say the Caller ID issue has been resolved?

 

Thanks in advance

Sorry, no screenshot, but you can download yourself. Go to Google Play and download or update "Samsung Experience Service".  It has updated again. The most recent update is 10.1 Apri 29, 2019 

 

This is the Android Overlay that Samsung uses.  My Smart Call started acting normally again after this service was updated, a few updates ago, earlier last month. Works both on my S9+ and Note 9.  They were previously both broken by Pie.
