Thanks for the suggestion but no application like this is installed on my device.

Maybe i will go throughout my apps once again..

My brother's N4 running 4.3 never had a problem. As soon as it updated to 4.4 he is having the problem.. Rarely but the problem is still there.

This problem is getting on my nerves!!

I hope 4.4.3 solves a lot of bugs of N5! Its a shame that an excellent device like this causes such problems.

Also another problem my friends are reporting, is that, they call me, it rings 3 times and then it hangs like if the device is powered off or i canceled the call. And i dont even hear it ring, or find an answered call.

Is there a chance all these problems to be linked on my provider?

I was talking to my brother today (he is a Nexus 4 owner) and he told me that after updating from 4.3 to 4.4 he had the same problem. He could only solve it by restarting his device. So i guess, this is a dialer bug. Clearing dialer data i dont think will help..
Same problem here, 4.4.2 original from Google.

I started thinking that maybe its caused by a 3rd-party application, but it seems that other Nexus 5 owners experiencing the same problem as well..

After some thinking i used factory reset on my device yesterday evening just to rule out the possibility below:

As soon as i have purchased the device Google Now wasn't available. So i read in a forum that in order to fix this you have to somehow trick the device that you are situated in a country where Google Now is available. So i downloaded an app (GPS fixing??) and positioned my device to UK, remove something and then install it again(Google services). That fixed the problem and Google Now was available.

Maybe something went wrong there and i was experiencing these problems..

So far so good. Then again to be sure if that was the problem i have to give it at least 2 weeks.

I will get back to you for the results.
