  • To skip songs or answer/end phone calls, quickly touch the touchpad two times. During a call, if you want to answer a second call or switch between calls, quickly touch the touchpad two times.
  • To play the previous song during music playback, quickly touch the touchpad three times.
  • To reject a call, turn off the microphone, or hear the readout menus, touch and hold the touchpad for more than two seconds. When you have a call placed on hold and you want to end the current call and retrieve the held call, touch and hold the touchpad for more than two seconds.
