Please check IMEI numbers.

Thats what i think the problem is. I accidently formatted the nvram partition so i have an invadid imei number. Am waiting for the db files from @bencebacsi to correct the imei.

I cannot adequately describe my Extreme Disappointment when (after waiting for a month) Our Phones arrived and discovered that they Could Not…Would Not successfully Make or Receive Phone Calls!!!

After poking around, I could make a Phone Call but not HANG UP!  Or I could I COULD NOT ANSWER an IncomingCall!!!
Gearbest offered ZERO Help or Support!

GIANT DISCLAIMER!!!:
Proceed at your own risk!  But when I started poking around, I figured...CRAP! The Phone Already Doesn't Work and Gearbest Definitely Sucks!
  • I Downloaded and Installed 2 Dialer Launch APPS.  Google Now Launcher and Drupe.
  • Neither worked...this is when I began 'playing around with Settings'.
  • SETTINGS
  • APPS...
  • Select 3 Dot Menu upper right
  • Select 'Show System'
  • All components are now displayed
  • Scroll to 'InCallUI'
  • I can't recall, but if you can start by removing all Cache...do it.  Scroll throughout and make sure there are NO Permissions...NOTHING!  EVEN UNDER ADVANCED!  I'm not sure if this is before or after 'FORCE STOP' and 'DISABLE'.  Either way, you want the End Result to show InCallUI 'ENABLE' and everything below with a Big, Fat NO!
  • Back out and select 'Initiator'
  • Pretty much repeat steps for 'InCallUI'.   The only thing is...'Initiator' Will Not Be Disabled but You Can Castrate It!
  • Back out and select 'Dialer&Contacts'
  • Castrate This UMI Crap!  You will be able to 'DISABLE' This One Entirely!

  • So to Recap...InCallUI, Initiator and Dialer&Contacts...Pull the Rug Out From Under As Much As Possible.
  • Can't Recall if I did anything with 'Auto Dialer', but mine is currently showing Everything GREYED OUT...Or 'Call Management'...mine shows Active
  • You will receive Notifications to ALLOW from time to time. BUT Always Say 'NO' after Checking the 'Don't Show Again' Box.

  • We're Not Through...
  • Now I'm Struggling to remember...
  • Back Out to Top of  'SETTINGS'
  • Select 'NOTIFICATIONS'
  • Scroll to 'Dialer&Contacts'
  • Make Sure ALL DOTS ARE OFF!
  • It should read 'DISABLED' in the Main 'NOTIFICATIONS' Tree
  • Scroll to 'Initiator'
  • 'Initiator' Won't Show 'DISABLED' but Make Sure ALL DOTS ARE OFF!

  • Now Back Out to Top of  'SETTINGS'
  • Select 'PERMISSION MANAGEMENT'
  • Select 3 Dot Menu upper right
  • Select 'System auto startup app(s)'
  • 'Confirm'only if you acknowledge You Can Really Screw Stuff Up HERE!
  • Make Sure that 'Dialer&Contacts', 'InCallUI' and 'Initiator' are OFF

  • I may have poked around 'APP Permissions' making selections in 'Contacts' and 'Phone' and maybe others...Don't Remember.  Be Wise!

  • *** Finally, after all that and only with Drupe doing an Update...I had a working Phone.  I could Dial Out SUCCESFULLY and Answer Calls SUCCESSFULLY and HANG UP!!!
  • All without INCALLUI constantly reminding me to Dislike UMI OS!
  • If either InCallUI or Initiator Pop-Up...make sure if it is seeking more than one Permission, to Select box Don't Ask AGAIN Each Time!
  • I never went back to try Google Now Launcher because I'm very pleased with Drupe.
  • Who knows what a REAL Update from Umidigi will do, but I'm sure it'll be interesting.

I hope this Helps.

Gearbest absolutely SUCKS!
Umidigi...Grade Yourself!

I am having the same problems but with the S 5.5 straight out of the box. Bought through AlieExpress from GaGa Mart, Mr. Frank Li. GaGaMart refuses to send us their return address. Avoid like plague!!  Post time 2018-1-21 09:09

put it this way
i did not have any calls issue, but i am pretty sure you will not find this phone worth what you have paid for.

If you do not trust me, that is fine, afterall its your money, but u will find out this fact in a matter of 1 month time.

Brand New Umidigi S Phones don't make or receive Phone Calls

Edited by FromHawaii at 2018-2-11 07:28 \n\n
I bought the S 5.5 phone (not the S2 or Pro) in October 2017 and it never worked straight out of the box.
There is a huge issue with the INCALLUI app with the S models.
You can not answer and or send calls.

SAME ISSUE as the person with the S2 on page 1 - see photo on page 1.
http://community.umidigi.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=16564

The error "INCALLUI keeps stopping" pops up all the time.
Nobody can guarantee that your version of this phone works straight out of the box without this well known error.


We tried everything like factory reset, clean cache, reset apps, everything including help on YouTube.
We bought this phone from GAGA-Mart owned by Mr. Frank LI / AlieExpress.
GagaMart / Frank Li now offers $13.00 (THIRTEEN) refund for a phone that we paid for $177.00 in October 2017.
GagaMart / Frank Li keeps weaseling out by refusing to give his return address, because the phone is still under warranty.
GagaMart / Frank Li suggested we have the phone repaired locally, but then I loose the factory warranty.
Besides that no repair shop in Honolulu knows anything about this brand. And if so that would cost me too.

THE ONE YEAR FACTORY GUARANTEE MEANS NOTHING!


Do not trust any one selling UMI phones. UMI can not be trusted either!
No solutions, just a crappie UMI forum and a contact address that actually means "do NOT contact us"!

Nobody who buys a new phone should have to go through all this.


SHAME ON GAGA MART-Frank Li, ALIEEXPRESS AND UMI!

I have bought S2 Pro from Gearbest and never had this error... Maybe It's related with your GSM network.
