i noticed that when i'm on a call on my n4, i don't get any audible notifications of incoming calls, texts or emails.

is there a workaround to this? is this a android issue, or the phone itself?

If I'm not mistaken, that is how it supposed to work. This is why if you are listening to music and get a call, the music will stop. Same principle.

You can turn on vibrate for your notifications.

hmm, most of the other android phones i've owned had this feature. it kind of sucks when i'm driving for work (which i do a lot) and have my headphones on for calls. i can't hear or feel a vibration at that point. i'm not big on Bluetooth headphones. i still like the analog.

so i guess there's no software/app solution?

Maybe I'm not understanding the problem. Whenever I'm in the middle of a call, I always get a beep for call waiting but only visual notifications and vibrations for email and text messages.

yes, that's what i mean. calls come through audibly, but not texts or emails. i like that function on my other phones. i'm just wondering if it's a kk thing, or the hardware itself.

i don't think anyone has a problem, i was just wondering if there was an app or setting that allowed for those tones. no big deal, i'll live without them on the n4.
