Answer a call

When someone calls you, the number or the name of the caller is displayed and your phone plays the ring tone you've chosen. Follow these instructions to answer a call.


1. Select option
  • Select one of the following options:
  • Answer call, go to 1a.
  • Reject call, go to 1b.
  • Silence the incoming call alert, go to 1c.
1a - Answer call
  • Press the answer icon and drag the icon right.
1b - Reject call
  • Press the reject icon and drag the icon left.
When you reject a call, the caller will hear a busy signal or be diverted to your voicemail.
1c - Silence the incoming call alert
  • Press the upper or lower part of the Volume key to silence the incoming call alert.
  • If you take no further action after silencing the incoming call alert, the call continues until the caller disconnects or the call is diverted to your voicemail.
You can silence the incoming call alert if you don't want to answer or reject the call right away. Afterwards, you can still answer or reject the call.
