Phone Ringing But Not Showing On Screen

Your Android phone is ringing, but you’re not seeing the call on your screen. You’ve tried turning your phone off and on again, but the problem persists. What’s going on?

There are a few possible reasons why your incoming calls might not be showing up on your screen. Here are some of the most common causes and how to fix them.


1. Your phone is in Do Not Disturb mode

If your phone is in Do Not Disturb mode, it will not ring or vibrate for incoming calls. To check if your phone is in Do Not Disturb mode, swipe down from the top of your screen and tap the Do Not Disturb icon. If the icon is blue, your phone is in Do Not Disturb mode. To turn off Do Not Disturb mode, tap the icon again.


2. Your phone is silenced

If your phone is silenced, it will not ring or vibrate for incoming calls. To check if your phone is silenced, swipe down from the top of your screen and tap the Volume icon. Make sure that the Ring volume is turned up.


3. You have a call blocker app installed

If you have a call blocker app installed on your phone, it may be blocking incoming calls from certain numbers. To check if you have a call blocker app installed, open the Settings app on your phone and tap on Apps. Then, tap on See all apps and scroll down to see if you have any call blocker apps installed. If you do, uninstall the app and try again.


4. Your phone is running low on battery

If your phone is running low on battery, it may not have enough power to ring or vibrate for incoming calls. To check your battery level, swipe down from the top of your screen and tap the Battery icon. If your battery level is low, plug your phone into a charger and try again.


5. Your phone is not connected to the internet

If your phone is not connected to the internet, it will not be able to receive incoming calls. To check your internet connection, open the Settings app on your phone and tap on Network & internet. Then, tap on Wi-Fi or Mobile data to make sure that your phone is connected to a network.
