    Welcome to Android Central! Does the screen otherwise work? Is this only when the phone is asleep when the call arrives, or does that happen when you're actively using the phone for something else?

    When phone is asleep, I get a black screen. If phone is awake, I get a phone notification icon. Swipinfg down from the top of the screen, I get the Answer and Dismiss buttons. All notifications are on. I have had this phone for about 6 months and it worked normally until about two days ago. Phone rings normally on incoming call.

    Does this also happen in Safe Mode? https://www.hardreset.info/devices/n...-71/safe-mode/

    I'm not sure if that phone has a smartcover feature, but if it does, and you have a case on, see if this happens with the case off.

    Found the problem. Select Settings/Apps and Notif/Phone/Notifications/Incoming Calls/Behavior/Make sound and pop on screen.

    Thanks for your time.

    Glad you figured it out, and thanks for sharing the solution! Although that's a bit puzzling to me -- why would that setting prevent the phone from waking and showing the incoming call on the lockscreen?
