Fix Incoming Calls Not Showing on Screen

Restart the phone

As we have mentioned in most of the Android tips and tricks, sometimes a simple restart of the device will do the trick. So restart your phone if your calls are not showing up on your screen, the problem might go away after this.

Check DND Mode

If the restart doesn’t fix the problem and you still can’t see calls coming on your phone, it may be the DND mode that is causing this trouble. DND mode blocks all the notifications unless you have allowed some apps to override this. To check this:

1] Open Settings and select Sound.

2] Now tap on “Do Not Disturb”, and if it is on, turn it off by tapping “Turn off now”.

3] However, if you want DND mode turned on for some reason, tap on “Calls” and allow calls in DND mode.

2] Tap on Advanced at the bottom and then tap on Special app access.

3] Look for ‘Display over the other apps’ and tap on it.
