    YourPhone only partly works


    Does YourPhone use Bluetooth for all its features? I ask because although I still have not got Bluetooth working (on but not connected) ---- another Thread) in YourPhone 3 out of the 4 features work, one does not. So I get Notifications, Messages and Photos (the latter is very poorly implemented compared to similar programs). But I cannot get Phone to work, having tried numerous times.

    I had assumed that everything operated via Bluetooth so if one feature did not work due to BT failure, none would work. However, this seems not to be the case, but if Notifications etc do not depend on a working Bluetooth connection what else?

  2. My Moto G7 won't connect for calls in YourPhone

    I have a MotoG7 Android phone. I have linked it to my Windows 10 Laptop (HP Z-Book) via YourPhone. This has been successful insofar as Notifications work, I can send and receive SMS, and see my photos.

    I now want to be able to use it to make and receive calls, but I cannot get it to connect. It stays stuck on the following screen.

    Yes, my phone is nearby and Bluetooth is on. If I turn off Bluetooth, or disconnect YourPhone, the message changes immediately to "We weren't able to connect to your phone".

    My laptop is listed as a paired device by my phone, and vice-versa. I use a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, both or which are working properly.

    I've tried;

    • disabling and re-enabling Bluetooth
    • forgetting and re-pairing my phone from my laptop, and vice versa
    • uninstalling and re-installing YourPhone on both my laptop and phone
    • unlinking and relinking my phone to my account
    • Turning it off and then on again (in other words restarting both laptop and phone)
    • All of the above (ie starting, as far as I can tell, from a clean sheet)
    As I've mentioned, the rest of YourPhone works perfectly, just calls.

    Can anyone help?

  3. Windows 10 infinite restart black screen


    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Bluetooth failure with YourPhone

    I think I have got to the very last stage in getting YourPhone to work with my Android MINOTE 7 phone. It is Bluetooth failing to make the final connection. I think the settings on both devices are as they need to be. I keep trying, but I get a variety of negative responses. Both devices recognise each other. Whenever I boot the PC there is a popup on the phone saying Bluetooth connection request, click to connect. But on the PC YourPhone just keeps telling me to resend the notification. I have several Bluetooth apps on the phone. Some say they cannot find the PC, while others list it as being paired. I have occasionally got as far as being given a code to enter on the other device, but sometimes there is nowhere to enter it, or if there is the code is not accepted.

    I know BT's reputation for not being reliable and difficult to set up, despite the years it has been in use, but this is the worst experience with it I have had. It did work for about a week some months ago. I use a couple of other similar apps (eg MightyText) mainly for text messaging, which rather shows up MS's inability to get their own app working reliably.
