Sending SMS issue Zorin Connect

Hello,

I'm a new (happy) user of Zorin Os!

I am trying to send sms with zorin and it is not working. I can see the history, if I send sms with my smartphone I can see the history updating but I cannot send it from the pc

Do you have any idea how to solve the problem

Thank you :slight_smile:
Zorin OS 16, updated.

Initially, can you reinstall the extension?

sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-shell-extension-zorin-connect

Then test.
If no good, perhaps some more knowledgeable Gnome Users can help.

On your Phone App, have you hit the hamburger menu and settings - Allowed all permissions?

Yes, everything is correct, I can show you but it is in French, I come from Belgium.

When I want to send an SMS on the PC, I can display the message "in gray" and it disappears after a while.

But if I text with my smartphone, I can see the correct history in Zorin Connect on the PC.

My logs:

If I could make a suggestion. Instead of looking for the answer under Zorin Connect for the fix, try searching under KDE Connect or GSConnect. They are all the same thing, but KDE is a lot more common, will get you a lot more search results. and Good Luck.

SMS is the only service that will not work. EDIT: not true, mounting the phone is impossible

The other things are going well ...

If you'd like to post the fix, it may help someone else. That's what it's all about.

I have no fix. Sending sms from Zorin Connect is not possible.

I have the same problem like at the begining :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Mount the phone is also impossible.

Maybe try deleting the app from phone, removing Zorin connect, reboot both and reinstall both. If I remember, I think I had to create a folder on phone to get it to work. As well as creating the rules in Firewall.

Firewall is off. No solution for me. :flushed:

Hey!

I'm back because i cannot send sms from Zorin Connect.

All run very well except sms.
I had do this

sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/udp
sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/tcp 

My log:

When i send an sms (test test) it's "grey" and disappear after a few time.

Sans titre

This = sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/udp & sudo ufw allow 1714:1764/tcp, is creating rules in firewall...lol
Glad you got it worked out finally. I like being able to text when on my pc, without having to pick up my phone.

I know that :grin:

Glad you got it worked out finally.

No, problem not solved ,sending sms from Zorin connect not work.

That's my only problem.

This may be a bit of a stretch, but have you reinstalled the ZorinConnect app on your mobile device?

Yes, reintall Zorin os pro, mobile app, desktop app

All run very well, except sms. To receive no problem...Just for sending.
I am going crazy

Okay, with an other smartphone (Honor 8x), that's run!

But it's not my phone -_-'

My smartphone is a OPPO A9 2020.

Not meant to bother, because I completely understand questions that may be considered dumb when struggling to get something to work. You did sync your phone with the pc, such as contacts, yes?
