This is not everything. Even the missed call notifications counter in the notification panel starts to act. That is, if you clear the missed call notification in the panel, the counter should normally be reset to 0. However, the counter now begins to accumulate missed calls. So to delete it has no effect.
I can understand your pain. Fortunately, there are many fixes that will solve the problem of notifying missed calls that do not appear on Android phones.
Let them check.
1. Restart the phone
Before you start tweaking some settings, restart your Android phone. You never know when this tiny solution can be useful.
2. Change the default phone application
Have you recently installed a third-party dialer? Or did you make another application your default phone application? If you are not sure, do not worry. Applications like Truecaller are the main reason for this problem. When set as the default phone application, notifications do not appear in the phone's native application. So we have to change the default application.
To do this, follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the settings on your phone and go to Applications and Notifications or the Application Manager.
2nd step: Tap Default Applications under Advanced. On some phones, you need to tap the three-dot icon in the upper right corner.
Step 3: Tap the phone application. Change the phone application of a third-party application into a pre-installed application. Try to give a missed call on your phone. Things should return to normal.
Pro Tip: Try changing the caller's call and spam to available options.
3. Clear the cache and data from the phone application
Start by emptying the cache of the phone application. It will not delete any data from your phone. If removing the cache does not solve the problem, erase the data from the phone application. Both are different. Deleting the data will erase the call history records. Nothing else will be affected.
Here are the steps for the same thing.
Step 1: Open Settings and navigate to Applications / Applications Manager / Applications and Notifications based on the option available on your phone.
2nd step: Under All Apps, tap Phone. On some phones, you may need to tap the three-dot icon and select System Applications to find Phone.
Step 3: Tap Storage, and then tap Clear Cache on the next screen.
Step 4: Restart your phone. Check if the problem is resolved. If it exists, follow this process again, but press Clear Data in Step 3 instead of Clear Cache.
4. Enable notifications for the phone application
Sometimes, notifications are disabled for the phone application. You must allow them to see the missed call badges.
To do this, follow these steps:
Step 1: Follow steps 1 and 2 of the above method – go to the Phone application under Settings> Applications> Phone. You will be directed to the information page on the application.
Professional advice: Keep the phone application icon on the home screen to view various options. Tap the info icon (i) to directly access the Phone application application information page.
2nd step: Tap Notifications. If the button next to Show notification is off, turn it on. Then press the missed calls.
On the next screen, first enable the Show Notifications toggle. Then make sure that Show Notification Point is enabled.
If the problem persists, repeat the steps for the Contacts application. Also enable notifications and notification settings.
5. Disable caller ID and anti-spam protection
Sometimes the built-in anti-spam protection of the Phone app also disrupts its notifications. Try to disable the feature.
To do this, open the Phone application and tap the three-dot icon – select Settings.
Tap Caller ID and Spam. Disable caller ID and spam on the next screen.
6. Disable third-party applications
If your phone has third-party device management applications, such as Clean Master, Battery Doctor, or an antivirus, try disabling them. These apps offer an unwanted notifications blocking feature that sometimes even considers the notification of the phone application as spam. So either disable the feature in these applications or disable / uninstall the application altogether.
7. Grant notification access to Samsung Experience Home
On Samsung devices, you must grant notification permission to Samsung Experience Home. To do this, follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the settings and go to Applications.
2nd step: Tap Advanced followed by Special Access. If the advanced option is missing, tap the three-dot icon at the top and select Special Access.
Step 3: Tap Notification Access. Activate the flip-flop next to Samsung Experience Home.
8. Reset application preferences
Try this solution only if nothing works. Although it does not delete any data from your phone, it resets all your phone settings to their default values (like on a new phone). Know in detail what happens when you reset the application preferences.
To reset the application preferences, follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the settings and go to Applications and Notifications.
2nd step: Open all applications. Tap the three-dot icon in the upper right corner and select Reset application preferences.
Point: You can also do this via Settings> System> Reset Options> Reset Application Preferences.
Imagine picking up your phone and noticing 20 missed calls. Everyone would be stunned. The shock does not last long because you would realize that something is wrong with your phone. There was only one missed call, but the phone said 20. Thankfully, you should not experience the same thing again. We hope that one of the solutions above would have solved the problem of notification of missed calls.
