Been fighting an issue for a couple weeks and finally figured out it was the Syncthing client on my Pixel 3. This all started after updating to Android 10 release (I was running the 10 betas from beta 3 on, with no issues until the actual release).
When Syncthing is running, it kills my phone connection within about 15 seconds of starting. The notification icon for call signal drops to 0, with an x indicating no signal. This causes dropped calls and prevents calls/SMS from coming in or going out; it only affects call/SMS signal, mobile data is unaffected. Have confirmed this is actually interrupting call signal, not just an indication issue. Have confirmed on multiple WiFi connections and multiple carrier tower locations.
This happens only when Syncthing actively runs, meaning if Syncthing is only set to run on WiFi, then when I connect to WiFi, it interrupts the call signal. If run rules configured to allow mobile data, same thing. The phone connection will reconnect within about 15-30 seconds once Syncthing is killed or stops (i.e. if stopped by run rules).
What hasn’t worked:
I’ve attempted multiple restarts, multiple resets of network settings, multiple reinstalls of client, updating to the latest client 1.3.0rc2 beta, cache and storage clears, using Syncthing-fork app, and extensive searching of the forums for similar items, all with no luck. Suspect a factory reset may be next.
Looking for some troubleshooting help.
Thanks in advance.
- Phone: Google Pixel 3
- OS: Android 10 (Build QP1A.190711.020.C3)
- Syncthing Version: 184.108.40.206 and beta 1.3.0rc2
- Carrier: Visible Wireless (MNVO of Verizon Wireless, USA)
- Carrier type: CDMA/4G LTE
Steps to reproduce:
- Open Syncthing app / Start Syncthing running
- Call signal drops within approx 15s.
- Call signal may reconnect briefly after approx 30s but will drop again shortly thereafter; this will repeat indefinitely
- calls/SMS cannot be placed or received
- kill / stop Syncthing
- call signal reconnects within approx. 15s and stays connected
