Note: If Mute is activated, the speaker mode is deactivated.

  • Activate Speaker to route the phone’s audio through the speaker. (You can adjust the speaker volume using the Volume button.)
  • Deactivate Speaker to use the phone’s earpiece.

Warning: Because of higher volume levels, do not place the phone near your ear during speakerphone use.

End a Call

There are a couple of options for ending a phone call.

If the phone number of the person who called is not in your contacts list, you can choose to save the number to your contacts list after you hang up.
