    Phone calls are clearer and more reliable as well as Bluetooth is much better as well.

    has the Oreo update solved the problem?

    My continued status reply, every three days, from BBSupport, relating to 7.1, is that they did not have a solution.

    Also no need to clear the cache manually anymore, Oreo does it automatically

    Oh and the orange status bar in power saving mode is now red

    I still use SD Mad Pro and AVG Cleaner Pro to clear my sh!t twice a day. The memory is also not used like it was in Nougat, so tha's also a bonus.

    How can I set up the default volume buttons to notification in Oreo? On Nougat, it was notification. But now it is ring.
    As I receive more notifications than calls, I prefer to control the volume for notifications as default.

    Don't think you can

    I think the only options to toggle notifications quickly is to assign the ring volume shortcut to a keyboard shortcut.

    Or you can use the silent mode toggle

    If the phone is rendered a brick by pooching wifi-calling -- would that be considered a "con"? Wife as Key1, I have motion and from what I've been reading -- whether by design or a bug -- WFC has tanked on Oreo. Considering the number of phones that use it -- in NA all major carriers offer WFC -- that's just about as Homer Simpson as it gets.

    I have tested my WIFI calling thru T-Mobile on my Keyone SE and its working correctly; the only thing is the menu options to toggle it somehow dissaperead.

    Yes i ran an autoloader to upgrade to 8.1 . It seems to be hidden but if you dont have signal and are connected to Wifi it pops up. Kinda odd that they hid it but its there. It just happen when i was in Mexico this weekend; connected to wifi and it automatically configured to uses Wifi calling. tapping the notification took me to the Original Wifi Calling menu.

    It also brought the triple-app selection to the convenience key, which I like quite a bit.

    if you press the convenience key twice to close the selection you can't use keyboard shortcut anymore until you hit the home button.

    It was introduced in the latest update on Nougat. It drove me crazy. Glad to have it working again
