|apddevo||Having the same problem with my samsung galaxy s3. It reads incoming texts and sends outgoing texts fine, but disconnects the phone calls as some previous posters have said. Major PITA!|

|simchippy||I have the exact same problem 80-90% of dialed calls. I have a Samsung Note II with Verizon. I'm so close to ripping my 430n out of the dash and beating like the fax machine in office space. I just received the most recent Android 4.3 update last week with no improvement. I hate this radio. My phone works perfect in 3 other cars and multiple BT devices.|

you're correct about that, there are 20 generic prerecorded messages. They don't want you concentrating on a long message as if you were thumbing it into the phone to send. Less distraction.

I just updated my buddies also and it has not dropped a call (I've placed about 20+). Well that's good but I am curious why they didn't attack MAP (Message Access Profile) for texting thru BT. You can receive messages but sending fails. Maybe there was more involved than there was to help placing calls. Not to mention that the "Chinese New Year" is this week.
Now I have to check on the Rezound, I don't see anything for it yet.

It works!! Yay. Only tried 3 calls but mine was doing it almost every time. I'm thinking it's fixed.

Here you go:
Source: Verizon Wireless
Software Number: 2.04.605.2 71ORD
HTC SDK API level: 4.63
Build number: 2.04.605.2 CL147796 release-keys
There are other version numbers for various things, let me know if you want anything else.
Thanks so much xsdbs for making HTC aware of the issue, looks like they got right on it.
|02-15-2013 10:26 AM|
I was having the same issue...placed calls were dropped from the radio almost right away and received calls were okay.
I updated my DNA this morning, removed/readded the pairing and after 15 test outbound calls, not a single one has shown any issues at all.
|02-15-2013 07:08 AM|
cool, hope for the best huh. Can you give me the SW info so I can add it to my notes? Thanks
|02-14-2013 07:06 PM|
|SilverMiner||I got a new firmware that was released for the HTC DNA tonight. I haven't checked to see if it fixes this issue.|

To answer your questions:
1 - The last time this happened, I noticed that my phone was still connected to the line. When I tried to speak into the phone, I didn't hear anything. I don't know if at that point my party had hung up, or if I was in voicemail.
2 - I usually try to make a call within the first few minutes of driving. But, I don't know for sure if that's consistent. I haven't fully paid attention to when I start making calls in the phone.
I have since updated my phone and it is 4.1.1 and 3.16.651.3 710RD. This didn't resolve the problem for me, however. I haven't tried unpairing it, and will try that out when I can.
FTP and MAP were unchecked. I have checked them now, and I will see if that fixes the issue before I try to unpair.

Wow, I was just going to edit this but it got closed quickly,
Can you look in you settings menu --> SW update. Have the phone search for an update, supposedly there is a .3.16 update that is available which is the same as the one that I applied to this phone. There were some BT fixes in it. Please give that a try, then delete you phone from Uconnect & Uconnect from your phone, then go thru a fresh pairing session. (Also, did you check the MAP & FTP boxes in the Advanced settings menu once you're in the BT menu)?
|02-13-2013 09:32 AM|
@ SilverMiner: (and anyone that has the HTC DNA & Rezound)
I have stumbled onto a work around that will let you use your phone thru Uconnect until a complete fix becomes available thru HTC. This is a "band-aid", but as I said you can use your phone.
Here's what I did:
1) go into your contacts and add a new contact with an odd # that won't call anyone. EX:
(name) ABC, ( I used the mobile number slot) 111-1111
Now we know with that # we will get a network message about the # being incorrect. (we want this to happen). This message will end in about 10-15 seconds (good)
2) This new contact is the band-aid.
3) when you want to place a call, you'll want to use this contact,
press and release the UC phone button and say "call ABC, mobile". UC will say calling "ABC mobile is this correct?" (yes)
4) the call & recording will start, then you'll hear the "call completed".
Now place the real call that you want to make (ex: call Jeremy, mobile).
5) The network reply for the wrong # will play a couple times on your phone and then the network will hang up and you don't have to worry about it, but Jeremy's call will go thru and stay connected.
Now I know you're thinking, "dude, that's such a P.I.T.A. and really sucks. Well, yes you're correct about that but after you try it a couple times, you'll see that it's actually quite simple and guess what(?) you get to use your phone thru the Uconnect system which in a lot of areas will keep you from getting tickets.
So as I said, this is a band-aid that I stumbled on from trying a few things. You are welcome to use it if you like but please, don't throw any abuse my way. I am only offering some help and hopefully there will be a correct fix soon.

I have been able to borrow a friends EVO 4G LTE, it's on Sprint but according to HTC, it should be the same SW as in the Verizon phone even though the #'s aren't the exact same.
Originally the SW package was:
Android : 4.0.4
SW version : 2.13.651.1710RD
Today, I updated to:
Android : 4.1.1
SW version : 3.16.651.3710RD
So far I can't duplicate your calling issue. My calls stay connected no matter when I try them. I will continue to use this phone for a couple days and see if there are any different results.
I do have a couple of questions for you:
1) You said that the 1st call after getting into the vehicle is when you get the "call completed" message. When this happens, is the call still going thru on the phone itself or does it end as well?
2) How long after you get into the vehicle are you trying to make a call?

|xsdbs||Just an update on the Rezound & DNA. The issue is still being looked into. HTC knows about them now and I was told that sometimes there is a delay getting into fixes when the Eng teams are working on new devices.|
|02-07-2013 07:24 AM|
americonium, Your screen name sounds familiar. Have I helped you before?
What is the year of your Jeep and which radio do you have? Thanks
|02-07-2013 07:21 AM|
KP, the SW in is an older version and my friend doesn't want to update it because it works fine now and he doesn't want to have any issues. I'll look into seeing if I can find one with the newer SW version in it.

|americonium||I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 w/Verizon and the official JB release. My phone only recently started doing this after the JB was pushed to my phone, and it's maddening.|
|02-02-2013 02:09 PM|
yeah, that is something that I find quite interesting as well. I'll get with you when I'm back home next week.

|02-01-2013 11:01 PM|
Goes to prove that it was an HTC issue and not Uconnect. HTC is still trying to have their Eng's look into a fix for it.
|02-01-2013 10:59 PM|
Hello kittyprawn, sorry I haven't been able to look into this much more yet with the DNA & Rezound. I see that you now have the EVO 4G LTE. I'll have to check your SW vs the one on the phone that I had tried out a short while back. I got called out of town for work and will be back next Wed or Thurs. I'll be able to look into these issues more then, ok.

|prophet||This was a major problem with my Rezound but the Rezound has been replaced by a Droid RAZR MAXX HD and the problem is gone. My wife just loved having to call me back after hearing dead air 75% of the time.|
|02-01-2013 02:27 PM|
Interesting. Mine will definitely do it more than once, but it's not every time. I don't see a pattern yet.
|02-01-2013 12:59 PM|
Just bringing this thread to the top with some new information...
I now have an HTC EVO 4G LTE and now have a problem. It is not quite the same as the OP. The first call of the drive that I initiate, whether through the phone or through UConnect, will ring once or twice and then disconnect. I will then have to call the number again. The second time I call I don't have the issue.
Software version: 3.15.651.16 710RD
Android version 4.1.1
HTC Sense version 4+
build: 3.15.651.16 CL124461
|01-21-2013 08:58 AM|
I used the HTC EVO 4G a few months back and had no issues with it. In fact SMS texting thru BT also worked well. It looks like Jelly Bean is available for it now, I'll have to see if my friend has updated and retest with the JB. I'll let you know about that one also. I'm still messing around with the Rezound, I got tied up this past weekend.
