Direct Call

Why dig through your contacts when you have Direct Call? Just hold the phone up close to your ear and the contact whose message or contact detail is on the screen will be dialed. It’s really that easy.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Enable Direct Call

Note: Set the device to make a voice call by picking up and holding the device near your ear while viewing message or contact details.

1 From the Home screen, swipe up or down to access the Apps screen.
