After spendig about six months on Sailfis OS again (i had a Jolla 1 before) and loved it i'm saying goodbye for now. Many lost calls and text messages not received left me to this decision. I'm even considering selling my Aquafish converted to Jolla C firmware. Already miss Sailfish but some bugs and the lack of LTE band 20 made me put it inside a drawer. I read in the forum that some users had the same problems with no solution ahead. Some of them thought that it was a carrier problem but i noticed it happened when i moved around and lost wifi connection to data. Somehow when someone was calling to me the phone rang on the other side but my Aquafish wasn't showing anything. The same with the text messages. I had to reboot to work again. I will continue to read the forum and help anyone that needs my help. I'm available to try new things for our comunity since it's not my primary device. I moved to a Nokia 5 and i can say that if it was possible to install Sailfish on it it would be great. Thanks to all that help me trough these years.

Thank you. You are always welcome to off-topic if you want to have a good time with your Nokia 5 or anything else completely unrelated. .

The rolled-back/EA/upcoming 2.1.1/2.1.2 has a fix (workaround?) for this, BTW; the phone warns if it loses the connections and suggests a reboot. Has worked for me at least (YMMV).

I understand your problems (experienced the missed calls myself), but 2.1.1 (and now 2.1.2) seems to have fixed them at least for me (no missed calls, not even the notification that rild crashed and a reboot is needed).
The LTE problems probably come from the fact that the Aquafish was designed for the indian market where only parts of the LTE bands from Europe or the USA are used.

My suggestion, if you would like to stay with SFOS would be to take a look at SFOS X and the Xperia X. The community builds look pretty solid and since the Xperia is targeted at the european / US market, they are more refined to it. I won't suspect any connectivity issues as was the case with the Aquafish. Of course, we'll have to wait till next week and the official release to see for sure.

I'm not willing to invest on SFOS X and the Xperia X because i don't want to buy a phone and pay an extra for the OS. About the LTE problem as to do when i go to a certain region of Portugal where i realy need LTE and not having the 20 band it works on a very poor 3g. I would consider buying chenliangchen phone when it gets available to buy
