After a long wait, I finally received my Librem 5 a couple of months ago.
I played with it for a few days, but ultimately the battery life led me to use it as a paper weight on my desk.
Thankfully though, not even a few months later, suspend was made (more) stable which drastically improved the battery life.
I am a moderate user, with wifi HKS off all day, and I require just 1.5 charges per day. This is manageable for me, so not a huge deal.
What is a huge deal, is that I will occasionally throughout the day miss calls and SMS.
My wife will email me and say that she has been sending me SMS, which never go through, or calling me which goes straight to voicemail.
The bad part is that the phone does not give me any indication that there are issues. I have 70%+ signal strength, and see the LTE icon.
When this happens, and she tells me that I am missing calls, and even though there is no visual indication that something is wrong…I am also unable to make outbound calls/sms.
8/10 times, toggling the HKS will get things working again…but in order to use this as a daily driver, I need to get calls reliably (for emergencies).
I am not a linux guru, but what I found is that dmesg doesn’t show any difference. When things are working, I dont see any errors…and when they arent, I dont see any errors. (One) of the last logs I see is that I am ‘authorized to connect’ in both cases.
I really dont want to go back to my Graphene OS device. I am loving Phosh & my Librem 5…but need to figure out what is going on here.
Even if the modem is not currently stable, at least a UI feedback would be nice to let me know that I could be missing communications.
Any ideas from the community?
I am also willing to provide more logs, and troubleshoot given I am provided with some steps. I may not be a linux guru, but pretty comfortable around the command line (given I know what to execute).
FYI, I am in the US using an MVNO (AT&T).
