Fix for when ExDialer does not show history or contacts any more

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/21

From [Wayback/] [APP][2.1+] ExDialer – Dialer & Contacts | Page 134 | XDA Forums:

I installed exDialer 1.98 and set all asked permissions. The contacts were not visible but after rebooting the device they show up. Now the problem still was with call history. I Install plugin for missing calls from exDialer’s settings. Then I went into device settings and under all applications found exDialer, go to permission settings to check if everything is enabled and then under call history permission tap on “Show all apps with this permission”. Then I disable this permission for the default call dialer (also if you have some other installed) and boom…call history’s back. I suppose this method can be used also on Android 10 or 9 if you have the same problem.
Note: Leave contacts premission for default dialer active.

All you got to do, after going through all steps I describe before is, go to phone Settings, then manage applications. There you will find default apps, open it and under Phone App change default to exDialer. I instantly get back call history, without reboot or any other action.

I must also say that “True Phone” is a great replacement I could not find any thing that I miss from exDailer.
It have both call recording and swipe to call/text. (you need to dig deep in the settings).
And True Phone is active active app with last update from Mar 13 2021

For me the only step to get the history visible was to make the find the settings for default “Phone App change default to exDialer”.
