Here's how to ensure you never miss a call or message on 2ndLine:

1. Keep the app open: To receive calls and messages in real-time, avoid closing the 2ndLine app completely. If you do close it, you'll only see missed calls and messages when you reopen the app.

2. Enable background refresh (optional): While not strictly necessary for basic functionality, enabling background refresh ensures the app can receive messages even when minimized. Here's how:

  • Open Settings on your device.
  • Go to 2ndLine.
  • Toggle Background App Refresh to ON.

Note: If the Background App Refresh option appears inactive when set to ON, for that navigate to: Settings App -> General -> Background App Refresh. Activate the system-wide option, enabling subsequent per-app toggling.

3. Disable Low Power Mode: If enabled, Low Power Mode might limit the app's background activity, potentially affecting call and message delivery. To ensure smooth operation, disable Low Power Mode:

  • Open Settings on your device.
  • Go to Battery.
  • Toggle Low Power Mode to OFF.


  • By following these steps, you can stay connected and receive calls and messages on 2ndLine seamlessly!
