How do I receive phone calls through my Gear VR?

The call icon will be shown when you have an incoming call, however you can’t answer calls while using the Gear VR.


To answer a call, separate your phone from the Gear VR and answer a phone call as you normally would.

To reject a call, place the pointer  at the top of your screen and tap the touchpad.


Caution: your phone may become hotter than normal while using it with the Gear VR. It’s recommended that you answer incoming calls by connecting an audio headset or by using the speakerphone.


Please note: Samsung Gear VR headsets are no longer compatible with newer devices, including current models:

Galaxy S20/S21/S22/S23/S24 Series

Note 10 & Note 20 Series
