Can I use Google for caller identification, seeing as True Phone doesn't have its own one?

And did the creator release a newer version lately? I don't mind if it's beta or not. I love true phone and I want to test the app.

First, the app is awesome. I used RocketDial for years (I recovered it from backups, because it's not available for long time). And now I've found good alternative. After week I'm sure, it's much better then RacketDial.
It's so good, that I purchased even if I didn't see any ad at all :)

I have a few questions / suggestions. Maybe I'll ask one per one (or a few for similar ideas).

1. How can I export and import blacklist?

2. It's possible to mark blacklisted numbers on dial history? Ex. some small overlay icon (like diagonal line). Best if there will be an checkbox.

Regards!

I think the same, app is really really good. And I have exactly same to notes to improve - it should be possible to import/export only blacklist contacts AND:
Blacklist numbers should either be in any way signed (so that when you look at history of "missed calls" you would not wonder if to call back or not...) or it should be possible not to display them in latest history of calls.

Or both :) Good idea.
Many options is good way for me.

I'm afraid the project is abandoned by developers now. I hope I'm wrong.

Hi, when i want to record a call, everytime i have the popup telling me that i have to enable the True Phone option... i enable it and i can record the call but the next time i try to record a call the option is disabled again.

What is happening?

Hello everyone
I've been using TruePhone for years and can't really imagine how to live without it mainly because of its additional Dual-Sim Functionality . Payed for the ad-free version of course and currently runninv v 2.0.17 rev 117 on my Galaxy A52s

First of all , thank you for your continued efforts to keep this app operational an bring new features , highly appreciated :)

But , I have a small question regarding to Bluetooth functionality

When I start a call from my car radio , Audio is no longer routed thru the car speakers by default . I have to long-press the bluetooth button and select the handsfree to switch the audio over .

I don't know when that stopped working , if it was with a version Update of True-Phone , or when I bought my smartwatch ( which can serve as hands-free too ) or when I changed my phone from my old trusty A8 2018 to the new A52S .

What I have checked :

- When I'm in the car, the car system is connected for Calls and audio and the watch is simply "connected"
- When I'm not in the car, I can see the watch connected for Calls

Now for the question .....

Is there any way to tell True-Phone to ALWAYS route Audio via Bluetooth when a bluetooth device is connected for "calls" ?
Ideally with the option of setting a device priority when multiple are connected ?


Cheers ,
Claude

Hi again :)

Reporting back after some testing .....


1) Doesn't matter if I use stock dialer or True Phone , behaviour is the same , so I guess it's not a True Phone problem :)

Here's the outcome ->

If only the Car is connected
- works as expected , Audio is routed to Car Radio as default when placing or answering a call

If only the Watch is connected
- works as expected , Audio is routed to Car Radio as default when placing or answering a call
- Audio is kept on phone when I place or answer a Call from the phone

When both the Car and the Watch are connected
- Audio is routed to Watch when I place or answer a Call from the watch
- Audio is kept on phone when I place or answer a Call from the car radio
- Audio is kept on phone when I place or answer a Call from the phone
- Long Press on Bluetooth button in True Phone allows me to switch Audio to car

I'm currently playing around with Automate to disconnected ( at least partially ) the watch when the car connects , but no luck until now

Anyone got a suggestion for me ?

Cheers and have a nice weekend ,
Claude

That behavior is not correct, and actually doesn't occur in my case:
- Xiaomi MI 11 Ultra
- Huawei Talkband B6
- Volvo Sensus Navigation

But actually the Talkband B6 is a smart headset and it's operative only when the earpiece is extracted from the frame, so this could matter.

Which is your car radio?

Android restrict call recording and True Phone must "hear" your speaker (not earpieces) to record something, root can overcome this restriction.
Replying to this old message from July.

I have the same issue with True Phone call recording. The voice of the other person is really low while mine is fine. You say that it's fine with root but how can I trigger True Phone to ask me for root access? It never did.

Read the OP until the end to find the link to the Magisk module.

Seat Media System ( Plus I believe ) 2018 ...
Huawei Watch GT2
Samsung Galaxy A52S

I'll run two more tests
- Check the behaviour on my VW Sharan ( RNS315 )
- Check the behaviour when I'm connected thru Android Auto ( I suspect it might work correctly then , but that's not a real help as I don't always want to plug in that cable ... )


Cheers,
Claude

Long time ago I've done some testing using Bluetooth Auto Connect v4.6.5 by UniqTec
Unfortunately this app is no more on the store and seems to be stolen by someone else... On APKmirror is available and in the description there is still references to UniqTec.
There are more recent version but not from this guy (I know and trust him for Task&Note) and honestly I will not suggest you to try the most recent version!! v4.7.0 is from UniqTec but is "pro", starting with v5.0 is from someone else!
On my Motorola Moto G5 plus I wasn't able to solve the problem definitely, but you may want to give v4.6.5 a try!

Safe to assume this app is abandoned? 😡 Annoying. This app is great. Only problem is it doesn't get voicemail.

The problem is about HW GT2, I had the same problem with the samsung phone. I've thread about it. There are some solutions suggested for GT2 user (I'm moved to samsung gwa2)
but that thread of mine may help you!
