1) Truecaller android app cannot detect incoming calls, thus cannot reaveal unknown caller's id. 2) True caller also cannot make calls through app dailer. 3) cannot make calls through reliance jio sim card using service providers app as it cannot access sim card functions. Since VOLTE is not supported by sailfish, it is only only option i have left with. 4) I could not find any such reference on jolla JT.

Need Help . Thanks in advance. A happy Intex Aqua Fish user....Looking for greater happiness.

NEW UPDATE Unified payment apps like SBI pay depends on access to sim related data for security reasons. So those app are necessary and unusable. Jolla should look in to the matter urgently.

You shouldn't buy SailfishOS phone if you using so much android apps. Aqua Fish is not android phone.

With all due respect, I agree to "No User with too much of Android" must buy this phone, but @coderus, I can understand what you say and for what you say, for the I'st part of the question but its a bit rude here upon the update, on 6-12-16, I use Jolla phone, SFOS, and I love it for what it is, and also most of your contributions as well to the community. It will be kind gesture if there is some workaround to this question updated on 6-12-16, which makes a lot of sense and an important feature, weather use android or IOS or Jolla, as the new system in India for making and receiving payments is made digital, and its become important additional means to operate Bank Account via a bank app, Government payment utility apps. Unified payments app thats been asked above is an important one here, and most of us will be using that to fulfill the purpose, And soon this mode of payment is going to be very common in India, as SBI is a Nationalised Govt. Bank, and almost everyone in India, have their account here. Thank You.

Then you need to use supported phone for sure, unless banks and others will create native apps for sailfishos.

@nobutter I would like to inform you that BHIM app is somehow magically working. Although it should not. But this feature is required. But for the time being we can use BHIM. I am using it. And @coderus it is not feasible to start buying a new phone for every new task. We are just asking for the feature only because android apps are supported and it may be possible to support this as well.

in short: to my knowledge there is no direct sim access for android implemented. regarding 1), there is the sailfish app "phonehook", it might serve your purpose

Thanks for the reply. I have checked the app. It is a good one. Native apps are always welcome. Do you suggest to add Feature-Request tag for point no. 3?
