An old HTC
Try pressing Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously, that's how it works on most current Android devices (dunno about older ones, do you know the model?)

My HTC one suddenly won't ring. I'm currently in Israel and with my local sim and Sprint SIM it just doesn't ring and it's not going to voicemail either.  Data works fine with both sims. Outgoing calls as well.
Any advice?

It doesn't ring, or no incoming calls?

Both. Does show anyone is trying to call.

Scratch that. Upgrading to Marshmallow seems to have fixed the problem.

Is there a way to block app permissions on Lollipop?

If you're rooted I believe you can do it with an xPosed module, I don't think you can do it otherwise

I don't think there's a need for that. After marshmallow google allows you to auto install your apps and setup you had on your previous device on that google account. Provided that backup data and apps setting is turned on. Unless you're referring to transferring media...

Yes. Media, texts, apps, etc.
