Thread: Can't get calls while in standby
09-20-2007, 11:13 PM #1Can't get calls while in standby
I have noticed that after 5 minutes in standby mode, the iPhone does not receive calls.
I tried calling my iPhone, and it rings once or twice, and then a busy signal.
Has anyone else had this issue, and/or ways to resolve it. I would hate to have to return it.

Note that sometimes while the iPhone's EDGE connection is activated, phone calls will be diverted to voicemail.Best Regards

I will try disabling EDGE, but I tried calling myself and the phone just kept ringing (approx 10 mins), and nothing, the iPhone would not pick up the call.
Turns out EDGE wasn't enabled at all. I know I am not the only one with this problem, I have been on other forums where other users were experiencing the same problem.

GREAT NEWS! We have a fix!
Erica Sadun has been good enough to create an app for me that sorts this problem! You need to have SummerBoard installed. The app creates a file (/tmp/SummerBoard.DisablePowerManagement) which allows the phone to be put on hold without having to have music playing.
The app needs to be run everytime the phone is reboot, as it's just a temp file. But saves battery life compared to the 'loop music' workaround.
The app can be found here.. http://ericasadun.com/ftp/Misc/JohnTool/
