We'll start by discussing how to make a phone call from your smartphone. 1. On your device's home screen, tap the phone symbol. A green phone symbol will appear on your home screen. To use your iPhone's calling app, tap this icon. 2. Select Keypad from the drop-down option at the bottom of your screen. 3. Type a phone number into the keypad and press the Call button.
Your phone will now search for a free phone number. You can view the numbers available in your area by scrolling through the list or typing an new number into the search bar. When you find one you want, click it to connect the call. Note: It may take a few minutes before your phone finds a number that is available.
When you're ready to end the call, simply press the End Call button or hang up by sliding down your screen.
Your phone will now display the caller's information along with a list of available voicemailboxes. You can listen to messages left by others by clicking their names. To leave your own message, just type it into the microphone and then click End Message.
If you want to call another person directly, rather than leaving a message on their voicemail, you can click the Phone button and then select them from the list of contacts saved on your device.
You can also send texts from your iPhone using its built-in texting app.
Making a Decision
With all of the other things you can do with your iPhone 4S, it's easy to forget that you can also make phone calls. To make a phone call, begin by pressing the phone icon on the home screen. You may also utilize the appropriately called Voice Control function on your iPhone 4S to voice-dial a name or phone number, or ask Siri to voice-dial. When you get a voicemail message, you can listen to it with the speaker on your device or download it to your computer for later listening.
You may make and receive phone calls from your computer.
It's just as simple to transfer a call on an Android device using the Dialpad app:
Then take the following steps:
Navigate to the Home Screen and then launch the app. Tap the green call indication at the top of the screen to return to the call. When you open the Call History list, your missed calls should be marked with a red exclamation point.
Go to Settings, scroll down, and touch Phone on your iPhone. Then select Call Forwarding. You'll see a new screen with only one choice, "Call Forwarding," and an on/off toggle that will be set to off. This is, unsurprisingly, where you input the phone number to which you want your calls redirected. Choose either Office Defined or Individual Defined. Then follow the instructions on your phone's display to complete setup.
Now whenever someone calls one of your numbers, your iPhone will ask them if they would like to call you back. If they say yes, your iPhone will connect their call to the forwarding number you specified. If they say no, your iPhone will reply with a message explaining that you are not available and giving them the option to leave a voice mail instead.
This feature can also be used as a way to share your phone number among multiple people. For example, if you work for a company and you want all of your coworkers to have access to your voicemail, you could set this up so that anyone calling your direct line gets forwarded to your office phone, while regular-old phone calls come straight through.
Finally, this feature can be useful in cases where you are out of range of your home network or Internet connection. If you know you're going to be away from home for some time but still need to check your email, for example, you can set your phone to forward calls to another number while it's offline.
