 Come on. Instead of actually fixing any bug and moving packages to
 .testing I'm busy with helping people to use a bugtracker... (seen
 globally on all incoming bugs)

 Replying to [comment:37 apm]:
 > Oh... I just discovered: Incoming calls work, but using the dialer to
 call out still says: "No phone call is possible. Reason GSM phone is not
 registred, No network".

 Yes, we at least have four reports for that. I have witnessed this as
 well.. I have done a fix, but I'm not able to put a potential fix for that
 into .testing as I'm completely busy with assisting people to use a

 At least one user did and I was referring to the log message. See, I
 acknowledge there is an issue. There is no doubt that there is an issue.
 But there is no way I can "solve" what this bug report has been turned in.
 I can not set it to "in_testing" as there is no way QA can verify that all
 the mentioned issues have been fixed. So the best thing I can do is to
 close this bug, and open one bug for one issue mentioned, or rely on
 people doing that. Reopening the bug does not change anything but keeps me
 away from putting bugfixes into .testing.

 work though)

 This is all related to the QAtChat (see my 1st vs 2nd) and highly
 dependent on timing. So by restarting, or killing qpe, or changing configs
 can change it. See the last five commits in;a=summary

 Random luck. I think the scanning of external media is just wasting power
 but is not blocking anything inside Qtopia.

 Please keep that bug closed, that does not mean there is no issue, but we
 engineers have to have a good signal noise ratio to do our work and sadly
 we really head to a bad direction with this bugtracker.

 Like in the two closing attempts. Your options are:
    - File a bug for 1st (no one did that)
    - File a bug for 2nd (the initial reporter did)
