Troubleshooting

Client not ringing when a call is received

There have been reports that users may experience unusual behaviour on iPhones that have been updated to iOS 5 and later, namely that when a call is received the phone does not ring.

This is because the notifications centre on the iPhone is reset, disabling the call alert notification. The fix is to go to your iPhone Settings App and then Notification Centre, and enable notifications for Bria.
