    I have an HTC 10 rumning Android 8.

    A couple of months ago I lost access to Google things, but only on the HTC. Going to Google Play took me to the "checking info" loop. Having read a few posts here, I solved it on Monday.

    Once the phone could access Play, it snorted up 90+ updates overnight.

    In the morning the screen was awash with notification messages. After a lot of swiping, a message like "notification cleaner" came up suggesting enabling would stop the barrage. I accepted.

    No I get no notifications at all. Not even txts or missed calls. I want them back.

    Now I've searched my installed apps but can't find anything explicit or any apps that it could be a feature of. I've been into notifications and rest all but still nothing. Checking a few apps that usually notify frequently, they're set to notify but still nothing appears.

    I'm stumped. Has anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks

    Settings > Sound & notifications.

    Here's a pic of the bottom.

    And if I tap on that last option, it takes me to the list of apps. Tap on any of them shows the notification for the app set to 'on'.

    That's a pic for sound adjustment. On the bottom is the option to open Notifications.

    There are different levels of importance for 'on'.

    Checking through some apps, the common feature is on/off. After many, but not all have "sounds" and "allow icon badge" for alerting, then some have various catagories after that like chats, failed delivery etc etc.

    There's nothing common saying "Don't show on the notification bar" or "don't display on the homescreen"

    Sorry, I'm struggling here to find a simple setting that could cause everything to go silent including not showing missed calls.

    Here's a screenshot of the default phone app.

    I can change "allow icon badge" but everything else is greyed out and I can't alter.

    Ok. How do I do that, and what's the impact on the phone from doing it?

    Sorry, but you're going to need to use the search function on this site or Google for the steps.
    The impact on the phone is that it may solve the problem. There is no downside. Good luck

    Thanks. Ok, one googling later, and I've cleared the cache partition.

    Mo impact on the problem - still can't see missed calls.

    I didn't post the app that you are missing the calls from, so I can't see how you have the same "build".
    Good luck
