Answer incoming call

When getting a call on the OnePlus smartphone, we are informed, in addition to the ring tone and vibration, by a preview that takes up the entire display of the device.

If the caller is saved as a contact, the corresponding or saved contact name is displayed next to the phone number.

In this case, no SMS message is sent, but the selected call diversion to a mailbox, for example, is active.

Note: Depending on the provider or network provider settings, the caller will only be informed that the subscriber is currently unavailable.

If we receive a call at an inconvenient moment, such as a meeting, we can reject the caller with a short SMS message and inform them that we will call back in a few minutes or later, for example.

After selecting the desired message, the caller is immediately rejected and an appropriate SMS message is automatically sent from the OnePlus smartphone.
