To enable debug mode you have to create a text file which ends with ".conf" in the directory "/var/lib/environment/ofono/" and set the variable "OFONO_DEBUG" to "-d". After a restart of ofono service it will log in debug mode for ofono. To undo this simply delete the file and restart ofono.

echo "OFONO_DEBUG=-d" > /var/lib/environment/ofono/debug.conf

Simply reboot your phone. Then you can see what is going on

journalctl --unit=ofono -f

imho it does not cover all usecases. So there are two options one can choose from.

Why install an app when all you need is two lines of code? It reminds me of the Android sheeple who install an app for every single news site they read, when all they'd really need is the browser.

My philosophy since the good ole days of the Nokia Internet Tablets has been "Less Apps, More Terminal", so I'll gladly upvote the original post and ignore all attempts at making me install something I don't need.

This app provides a direct channel to our developer - it is easy to send the log over email to the telephony expert. https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203294343-How-to-collect-oFono-logs

Everyone can of course do it in the way he/she prefers. :-)
