Receiving calls

When you receive a phone call from a contact, the Incoming call screen appears.

  • If the display is off when you get a call, the Lock screen appears. Drag the bar that shows the caller name or number downward.

Tip: You can also Press the POWER button twice to reject a call.

Changing the text message to send out for rejected calls

  1. On the Phone dialer screen, press MENU.
  2. Tap Settings > Edit default message.
  3. Enter the new message, and then tap OK.

Muting the ringing sound without rejecting the call

  • Place the phone face down on a level surface.
    Note: If the phone is already facing down, the phone will still ring when there are subsequent incoming calls.

HTC Caller ID

Everytime you make a call or your friend gives you a ring, you get to see your friend’s latest status update from social networks like Facebook or Twitter right on the call screen. You also won’t miss people’s birthdays. You’ll see a birthday reminder, if your friend’s birthday will occur sometime within the next seven days.
