Tmobile SamsungNote 3 Wifi calling on Cyanogen – The work around

Friday, November 14th, 2014 | Author:

So you installed Cyanogen or any other ROM and lost wifi calling. Here’s my work around which is not perfect but works for me.

  • Setup Google Voice get a free number or use your existing account
  • Install Hangouts
  • Install Hangouts Dialer. Configure Hangouts to receive calls: Guide here

Now you need an app to forward your tmobile calls to Google Voice. I listed two one paid and one free. They both work

Simple call forwarding [PAID APP]

Call forwarding [Free alternative]

 

Optional app that will put your phone on airplane mode but leave wifi on:
Auto Airplane Mode:

 

So when you’re in an area with no coverage just start the forwarding and your calls will come-in to Hangouts. You can also make call via WIFI via Hangouts. You can use the optional app “Auto Airplane Mode” to kill the Cell radio to save power. While leaving wifi on. The program can be scheduled so you can have it turn-on on a schedule.

This setup is not perfect because if you make calls they will show up as the GV number. Its not pretty but it works.

 

Enjoy!

Fixing Cyanogenmod RC5 update CWR Status 7 errors. Sprint Galaxy S3

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013 | Author:


So you’ve been running all the latest CM updates until around CM 10.1 RC2 and now you’re faced with “Status 7″ errors…. you’ve tried wiping the entire phone, you tried a different recoveries, and all the useless suggestions on the CM comment page. This is what worked for me.

***THIS IS ONLY FOR THE SPRINT GALAXY S3.***

***NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE DOING THIS***

  1. Download MD4 Firmware:

  2. Flash Firmware using recovery (CLockWorkMod or Teamwin work)
  3. Wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache
  4. Install the CM RC5 or whatever release you wanted to install.
  5. Done

I would like to thank the XDA community for hosting the files needed:
