Configuring the Phone App
To make the Phone app work your way, you can configure its settings.
- Tap to enable or disable the feature that allows you to swipe over a call log entry to either place a call to that number, or send a text message to it.
- Tap to choose certain numbers for which calls will be automatically rejected. Tapping here also lets you edit your canned call rejection messages.
- Tap to choose whether you want to use Voice over LTE (VoLTE) when it is available.
- Tap to choose how you want to answer and end calls. You can choose to use your voice (saying “answer” or “reject”), press the Home button, or press the Power button.
- Tap to enable or disable a feature that automatically answers an incoming call if you have your S6 connected to a Bluetooth device or your vehicle’s built-in Bluetooth.
Tap to choose options for vibrations, call status tones, and alerts during calls. You can choose whether your Galaxy S6 vibrates or plays a tone when someone answers your call and when they hang up. You can also choose to receive or suppress notifications during calls.
- Tap to choose the ringtone that plays when you receive an incoming call. You can also choose whether you want your phone to vibrate when you receive an incoming call, and what vibration pattern to use.
- Scroll down for more settings.
- Tap to enable or disable Wi-Fi Calling, and choose how you want your S6 to utilize Wi-Fi Calling. You can choose to have your S6 prefer Wi-Fi but use cellular if Wi-Fi is unstable; prefer the cellular network, and only use Wi-Fi if cellular service is unavailable; or only use Wi-Fi for all calls.
- Tap to see additional settings, including how Caller ID is handled, call forwarding, call waiting, and Fixed Dialing Numbers (FDN). When you tap, the settings are loaded over the wireless network, so you might need to wait a few seconds before they appear.
- Tap to choose which voicemail service to use (if you have more than one option). If you use Google Voice, it is common to use the Google Voice voicemail system as opposed to the one provided by your wireless carrier.
- Tap to adjust voicemail settings (if options are available).
- Tap to choose your ringtone for announcing voicemail.
- Tap to choose to also vibrate when you are notified of a new voicemail.
Tap to save your changes and return to the main phone screen.
