I am having a problem with my bluetooth headset and my Mi A1, which I bought recently.
When the bluetooth is paired, no ringtone is coming out of the device on incoming calls, just on my headset,
which means I get a lot of missed calls since I don't have the bluetooth in my ear all day long.
All sound settings are on and on high volume.
I have tried 5 or 6 different roms. Same problem with all of them.
The bluetooth headset (Xiaomi Mi Headset Basic) worked perfectly on my previous phone (HTC M7).
I also paired it to another Xiaomi phone (Mi Max 2) and it worked perfectly as well.
I tried to pair another bluetooth headset (PLT E500) with the Mi A1 and it had the same problem with the incoming calls.
No ringtone.

Any suggestions?

On some roms you can choose to make it so the ring tone rings from the phone and not headset even when it's paired, maybe it's in stock too. Maybe there's an magisk or xposed module

where is exactly? I have AEX (Pie) but I don't find it
You are right, I haven't this option too with the latest February Pie update. But my old Nexus 5X with 8.1.0 still have it (Enable in-band ringing):

I reread your OP carefully and I am very surprised by your problem.
Because for me the ringtone is coming out of my Mi A1 or Nexus 5X (both with the latest stock ROM and stock dialer) when bluetooth headset is connected and I remember that this has always been this way from Nougat through Oreo till Pie now. Tested with Plantronics Explorer 50 and Jabra Elite Active 65t.

Funny thing is that I wanted the opposite, to have silent ring on device when wearing BT headset, because I have my BT headset switched on only when I am actively using it so it would not be a problem for me to have sound only in the headset when I am actively use it.

I'm yet on 8.1 stock rom, i don't want to upgrade yet on 9, and i have similar problem.
I have two bluetooth handsfrees, one Xiaomi and Platronics. The problem is the same with both of them.
When is connected to Mi A1 if i receive a normal call the smartphone will ring on the smartphone and on the headset normally.
If i receive a call via apps (What'sApp, Viber etc) then the smartphone doesn't ring even on the smartphone or the bluetooth headset...
I have search it and could found any solution yet...

I have the same thing on Mi A2 Lite. No ringing tone on incoming Whatsapp, Signal calls, when phone connected with bluetooth headset. All other notifications (messages etc) audiable. How did you bypass this?
