Missed calls are not showing up on my phone icon?

Galaxy S4 my missed calls on showing on my phone icon. How do I get it back

Ad

This issue is usually caused by a Samsung Galaxy S4's user's decision to upgrade to Lollipop. The new update's default settings only show text messages at the bottom of the home screen and omit the count of missed calls entirely. To add the notification go to Settings and tap on Sound and Display. Next tap on Sounds and Notifications and then tap Notifications. Select "while locked" and then select "Show all content." Return to your home screen. If notifications still don't show up (you can test this by phoning yourself with another phone) then reboot the phone.

The above solution also works for Galaxy S4's that have lost the Missed Calls notification on their home screen.

How do I get missed call indication on Samsung S4?

Hi, I have been avoiding the system update with fears of something may go wrong, but I activated it by mistake. Now I do not get missed call indications on the phone icon on my home screen.

Follow the above answer for configuring your Sound and Notifications options to ALL and not just text messages etc. You will further want to go into Applications Manager and select BadgeProvider. Clear the cache and data from that application. Then put your S4 into Recovery Mode. Choose Wipe Cache Partition. Test once the phone restarts to see if missed calls are displayed.

This is a new feature of Lollipop 5.0. Use an app like Nova Launcher if you can't configure your Sound and Notification settings to display missed calls.

Hi. Android Call Log is not storing or displaying recent missed/incoming/outcoming calls?

I'm trying to fix my moms phone. Its an Android model sgh-I257M Android version 4.4.2. Her call log is inaccurate. Does not show all missed calls or store any of the daily calls. Do you have an idea to fix?

In Applications Manager, select Phone. Clear the cache and data for that app. There seems to be a cache conflict causing the issue. Then go into the Phone app settings and see if she configured it to not save logs. Also, apps like CCleaner or CleanMaster will delete old logs if you select the option. She may have a conflict with one of those apps.

Missed calls & SMS are showing on lock screen, but not displaying on little phone & messages icon?

Missed calls & SMS are showing on lock screen, but not displaying on little phone & messages icon. I have tried: Settings, sounds & notifications tab, show all content while locked. I think it was caused by: I deleted some apps to make more room for updates

Put your phone into Recovery Mode and Wipe Cache Partition. If there is a conflict still remaining with the apps you deleted then this could be the cause. Then check the OS version. If you have Lollipop installed, you will get no missed notifications on the home screen.

Did you restart your device or pull the battery for 15 minutes? If you do not have Lollipop OS and there is nothing to configure in the Phone app settings, perform a hard reset on your device.

I am actually have a problem with my S5. It does not show missed callls or unopened emails on the phone or email icon?

It does not show missed callls or unopened emails on the phone or email icon. I think it was caused by: Don't know. Maybe an update

Clear the cache for the Badge application as mentioned in an above answer. Then put your phone into Recovery Mode but select Wipe Cache Partition. Your phone should now notify you.

My missed call list is not updating sir?

My missed call list is not up updating sir?

Check your date and time settings on the phone. If these are off with cell tower times and dates, the logs will not update.

When I open my call logs and to view "All Call Logs History" phone is always kicking me out?

When I open my call logs and to view "All Call Logs History" phone is always kicking me out. This never happened to me before, cause I'm trying to view a missed call that I have last Saturday. When I open my call logs and to view "All Call Logs History" phone is always kicking me out. I have tried: Power cycling my phone. I just cannot do the Clear Cache/Data of my Phone App because it will delete all of my call logs history. I think it was caused by: I'm not pretty sure, but my software didn't update yet on my Coolpad Catalyst
