Missed call notifications not showing up

Android & Huawei Phones: Missed Call Notifications Not Showing Up After Phone Update


How to fix the issue that missed call notifications are not showing up on Huawei phones after an EMUI update.

After the last update of my Huawei phone (Android 9 Pie, EMUI version 9.1.0) I had the problem that missed calls were neither displayed on the start screen nor on the lock screen. This made the smartphone, well, useless.

Update 24.04.2020: If you can’t answer incoming calls, try this fix: Huawei: Can’t answer incoming calls

Here is my device setup:

Android version: Android 9 Pie
EMUI: version 9.1.0
Build number:

However, this problem may also effect Huawei models like the p10, p20, p30, mate, lite models and maybe others. Maybe other Android phones are effected as well because of an Android update. The solution should be similar for other Android phones (Samsung).

The advice on the internet to reset the smartphone was too much trouble for me. In addition, the chances of success were (in my opinion) rather modest.

Fortunately, I have found an easy solution to the problem and notifications of missed calls are now displayed again.
