  • Speaker speakerphone on call icon: Route the phone’s audio through the speaker (On) or through the earpiece (Off).
  • 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.

  • For example: When you call your bank’s 800 number, use your dialpad to enter your account number and PIN.

End a Call

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

  • On the call screen, tap End call.
  • Slide the notification panel open, and then tap Hang up on the call notification.

Tip: 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.
