J7: To use Phone, you need to turn on Apps that can appear on top in Phone setting

[ Edited ]

Hi Samsung Community Friends,

 

Several days ago, I hit the update button to update my Galaxy J7 to latest updates. Now I can't do any phone call from call log or contacts as I could did before. To make phone call I have to enter the phone number in dial pad.

 

When I view a Call Log item and touch on Call button, it said: "To use Phone, you need to turn on Apps that can appear on top in Phone setting"

 

But in Phone setting, there is no option for "Apps that can appear on top". I did check in system Application Manager too but Phone app is not listed in the list of Apps that can appear on top

 

Do you faced to this problem before and do you know any way to solve this?

 

Best Regards

David

Hi userL1rFKZAARo,

 

Thanks for your way. I tried to set SIM1 as default SIM for Voice Call then it works. It seems the dialog of asking to choose a SIM for calling is failed to display because it's not possible to appear on top.

 

I hope to have a better way from Samsung for this. Because I am using 2 SIM and I need to able to choose SIM before calling.

Me too! Using the same SIM for all outgoing calls is not acceptable - I cannot have customers knowing my personal number, or friends being confused by my business number.

Hi my friends,

Several days ago my J7 notified me for new updates. I updated it and it solved the issue now.

Good luck!
